    Always awesome live music here! Atmosphere is inviting and the service is consistently good. Some hits and misses on the menu but overall a great neighbourhood bar. Check out the bluegrass Mondays

    A great place in a great neighborhood. Can get really busy on Friday and Saturday nights, get here early if you want a table.

    Great local beer selection. Great vibe - live music but not too loud to enjoy a good conversation.

    Beer is excellent, food is also great, and the waitress is amazing! Try the Nickelbrook!

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

    If you're looking for Muskoka Cream Ale then you came to one of the few places that serves it well.

    Get the wings hot, not medium. Best going down with a pint of Muskoka Cream Ale!

    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

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