Go on a Wednesday night for half-priced wings, which are either saucy or dry, not breaded and average in size. The staff is capable; however, the management leaves much to be desired. We found that much of the liquor was in such short supply, they ran out after one or two mixed drinks. Further, they only have two beers on tap. I'm not sure what passes for a decent pub in YK, but this place apart from not bad wings, needs TLC and someone who knows how to run a pub!

This sports bar is in the basement and overall was pretty good. The food wasn't too bad and they had several TVs with the game on. Not a bad option.

It would be best if they would keep Bob in the back. It's one thing having to wait for 45minutes to get my food, but totally another when Bob scowls at me when I order water instead of some marked up drink. Ok food,bad service.

Food is consistant pub food, with Bob tweekeing the menu every so often but never changing the wings which are the best i have had in Yellowknife, and, probably the best i've had ever.
The place is called Surly Bob's for a reason, Bob is surly, but a great guy deep down.
It's in the basement, so mobilitly challenged be ware, but the place is the best to watch any major sporting event, especially super bowl, stanley cup playoffs (Bob is unfortunately a Canuck Fan), Grey Cup, and many other event which Bob will open for on the occasional Sunday.
Only two beers on tap and a washroom that needs renovations adds to the charm,
A live lobster tank has been added which is nice

You may even see the Ice Pilots from History Channel here
