The burger I had (the Molly) was exceptional. It could easily feed two humans, it was hot and juicy and this version (there are many Mollys) was stuffed with jalapenos and cheese. So that was great. However, there is a general feeling that nobody is really watching the store. Details don't appear to have gotten any attention. Ambiance is sort... More

My husband and I had the bacon cheese burger special: they were delicious, and huge! Fries were also excellent, both sweet potato and regular. Service was excellent. The only negative was the limited menu.

I have gone to this restaurant for years and have always enjoyed the food and the staff. This is no longer the case. There have been changes to the menu which is expected from time to time but there are also other changes that are not to be expected. Things like quality of food, plating and attention to detail that... More

This pub used to seem to care. Staff is now verging on surly. Moosehead and Moosehead on tap? Maybe opening up the other restaurant down the street has stretched management to there wits end? Who knows, off to the Royal Oak...and that is a sad statement.

The food are unbelievable, so GOOD, and so MUCH! I had the cajun Molly burger, with spinach and fries. Heaven! I brought half of it in a box, for eating later. The portions are huge! Cheap beer, and very friendly staff. There are people in all ages enjoying this cosy pub.

My wife and I walk in the area a lot and never thought to go in...always just walking by....However we were really hungry one day - just walking by of course - and we decided to give it a try. Darn. I wished we had stopped in sooner! Relatively small menu, but the servings are anything but, & the quality... More

Quite a quaint little bar out of the way. Nice place for beer and pub food. Was pleasantly surprised at the Sunday steak night special ... a tasty chuck steak and fresh cut fries for $9 Will be back for sure.

The place is cozy, the servers are ok. The food is ok if you order the munchie. I've had their poutine, expensive but not worth the size. Very salty. The siracha noodles are gross. The homemade ketchup is gross. Add siracha to it. It taste better. It's nothing to recommend to anyone really. Like I mention the munchies menu is... More
