Neighbourhood pub atmosphere and a little quirky - but I enjoyed it. Great drink selections but a limited menu. I tried the catfish with grits (gluten free) and it was good. I will go back.

Enjoyed unique cocktails here but was underwhelmed generally. The seating is awkward: long benches means you're sitting next to other patrons, which is a bit odd if you're trying to enjoy a discussion with your group. It tends to feel louder than the general "busy-ness" of the place belies. The appetizers were tasty but nothing unexpected. The service was a... More

We went to Union on Monday night, and we had the ceviche, a TV dinner, southern fried chicken, and catfish. The ceviche was too small, but the meals were decent sizes, and the TV dinner, was a great deal! The ambiance was great, and the service was reasonably fast. Decent beer and cider selections.

We had heard ok reviews about this place, but my girlfriends and I decided to try it anyways for one of our monthly dinners out. We were not disappointed, the food was amazing! I have nothing but good things to say about the food. The service was also great, the only down side would be that the place is super... More

This property was a real disappointment. The menu is a tribute to faux thinking,and at best the presentation was mediocre and the meal was even less so.

I had the southern fried chicken which was tender but lacking any flavor. It came with a spiced vinegar to add some kick but also very bland. The dish was accompanied by red cabbage that was also sub par. I had chosen the corn bread as a side which also had minimalistic taste with a huge chunk of so called... More

I love visiting Union! The southern-style comfort food is delicious and hearty without being heavy. The bar and hidden speakeasy serve up creative and tasty twists on old favourites using ingredients prepared in-house; they also serve local micro- and craft-brews. Finally, the service is always exceptional. All in all, it is clear that the owners and staff at Union care... More

This is a super hip spot with cool decor and a casual relaxed vibe. Small diverse menu with a modern take on traditional southern cuisine. Excellent, knowledgeable service, and very laid-back.

Had one night out and chose this based on friends review. Loved this place just for the vibe and menu! They have taken pride in the working class to new heights! And the food was really good! We split a salad and friend chicken, made a wonderful meal for two!

Went here with a large group that just got larger as more people than expected poured in. Our extra numbers were cheerfully accommodated. Union Local 613 came highly recommended and we were very happy with the service, the food and the general atmosphere. This is a bustling, busy place with an inventive Southern-inspired menu, custom cocktails (I had a Flaming... More
