    Duck confit poutine, do it. Although it's a bit expensive given the portion!

    Skip the fish'n'chips - they're soggy. The burgers on the other hand are killer. Get the curry mayo.

    So so food, but great live music and atmosphere. Actually, if you can get the Irish Stew (seasonal, usually during the winter) or Perogys it's worth a trip. Read more
