This little gem is hidden away on Front Street but should not be missed. They have a great rotating draft happy hour and the best beet salad a girl could want. Go see Taylor on Monday or Tuesday; she will treat you right, be helpful...More

Stopped by on a Saturday evening prior to a concert at Festival Pier for a few drinks. Service was quick and friendly. Tried the Curried Cheese Chips and they were amazing. Definitely stop by if you get a chance.

Stopped here for lunch and it was great! Our server/bar tender was very friendly and made a great cucumber cooler. Fish and chips were perfect and my husband said his roast beef sandwich was very flavorful. We would definitely return and I highly recommend it!

Always pay a visit when im stateside and now they have Carlsberg on tap, proper size pint glasses and great staff, why go anywhere else. My favorite bite is the curry cheesy chips and the trivia night (on Wednesdays) is brilliant.
