We ordered soup and Black Bean burgers. The soup was homemade, hot and delicious. Burgers arrived almost simultaneously so by the time we got around to eating them, they were almost cold. Taste was good though, buns and fixings nice and fresh. Friendly service, very clean and very clean bathrooms.

Not outstanding, but ok pub food and beer on their new outdoor terrace. Live music to boot! Nice place to relax on a hot summer day.

Attractive building constructed 2 years before confederation. The service was acceptable and the food was o.k but overpriced in my view. A loud group of football spectators was a bit distracting.

We stopped here after a camping weekend with the guys. Good selection of interesting beers and some typical pub fare that is done well, plus some fun stuff like a list of interesting gourmet dogs and burgers. Everyone enjoyed their meal.

Took the scenic route back from up north and stopped by for lunch. Good location by the river, huge menu and good service. The beer they have specially brewed for them was quite nice!

Trivia night last year was great, we went a couple of times and it was packed both times. No idea why they don't have it this year, bad move in my opinion. Would have gone and spent money, now we'll go somewhere else.
