My sister, who dwells hereabouts lured me to this den of diners so I engaged a chicken pot pie and was nourished and satisfied. The pub was filled like an overbooked airplane.

I got the forty creek BBQ poutine and it was absolutely drenched in sauce and gravy. Personally, I am not a fan of that much sauce. Otherwise, it is a decent spot to go. Their onion rings and bruschetta are great. Servers were interesting.

Stopped in on a Wednesday and it was crowded because it was 2 for 1 wing night. Service was good despite the busy night. Food was fast and wings were pretty good. Not too keen on the Jester wings. Everything else was fine.
