Thanks for stopping by pre-hockey. It's usually very busy but we have a good system of finding spots to sit and getting the food out quickly so people can make the game. We are glad you enjoyed your visit.

Great place to go. On Monday evenings they have free Texas Holdem. You get more chips of you have some food before playing. Winners get gift cards and points. Nice bunch of players, nice place to spend an evening.

There is a great bunch of FREE Poker players in here every Monday night. We hope they took it easy on you or the other way around. :)

The atmosphere is laid back but trendy. It has a "Cheers" atmosphere. Their drinks are comparatively priced as is their food. My husband and I have fallen in live with their turkey commercial. It is absolutely delicious. Attentive wait staff makes it all the better!

Went there with three colleagues for lunch. Very disappointed. The service was slow and the food tasted stale and old. Nothing special on the menu. The prices went up tremendously. What happened Pub 500?More
