One of my favourite drinking establishments in Western Canada. One of the best and cleanest bars I've ever been too. The Guinness burger is like no other. Highly recommended.

Cozy fireside tables, staff who are warm and friendly and remember your preferences and good food. I tried various pizzas, steak and blue cheese salad, chicken wrap, pork ribs and chicken wings over a period of two weeks and every meal was great! They were out of the Chardonnay wine for two weeks which was disappointing but here are several... More

Food: went here for drinks only. Great selection of beers. $5/drink. Atmosphere: Very quaint pub, with a great up-beat feel. I didn't appreciate the short-shorts and skirts the waitresses wore … it kind of gave the place a "hooters" feel unfortunately. Otherwise, this place was themed very well and I enjoyed my visit. Service: very quick and the staff were knowledgable on the... More

We ate in and had take out from here as well. The food was tasty and served piping hot. The menu has something for everyone, from fish and burgers to chicken and steak. The breakfast menu is varied and accommodates children. They brew Starbucks which is a favourite!

We arrived, seated ourselves, there were a minimum of 5 waitresses on, and in a period of at least 1 1/2 hours, not one of them smiled even once. They all looked like they had been on shift all day and were waiting to go home. The food was mediocre at best. I ordered a Canadian Pizza, the sauce was... More

The bar is very friendly- a tad expensive. The decor is good, furniture great, friendly bar staff, great food. HOWEVER went to the bar to check out the World Series- all five TV's on football- Sask vs Cgy. I know Sask supports the Riders but they wouldn't give one TV to baseball. I went to my room, watched TV. Disappointed... More
