    Kind of a meh atmosphere. The burgers were mediocre and the combinations aren't great. The fries are tasty though. Great beer list!

    Love his place! Near my house with tons of beers on tap and good menu. Kitchen is open late -- always a plus!

    25 cent wings is an EXCELLENT deal. Make sure you grab a pint and a basket of bacon to top it off.

    It's a lot like Small Bar (which previously occupied this space), only with overpriced drinks and bad food.

    Great beer list, great food, and friendly staff. Can never figure out why this place isn't busier.

    The poutine is great. The bar looks great. I've never been in here though when there are actually people. If your looking for that, swing by on a Sunday night, or Wednesday night.

    LOVE the chicken wings/backs appetizer! Chef changes sauce/glaze all the time. Crispy, tasty, with lick-your fingers glaze, (sweet-savory apricot glaze, etc.) sophisticated and filling. A bargain.
