Love the big TV's for watching the game. We had great service and the chicken wings were good. Lots of parking too.

This restaurant has a great atmosphere. The food can be a little expensive for what you get, but it's always hot and tastes good. Popular with university students.

Your average pub fare; was expecting more based on the decor (very open and nice). Dinner salad was surprisingly small with chicken overcooked and cold. No one in the establishment knew how to pour draft beer or they've been instructed to save the pub money by serving beer with ridiculously large "heads". Several tables (including ours) were complaining that we... More

Tried Crabby Joe's Tap & Grill in Waterloo for dinner. Decent pub-style menu with a wing special on Tuesday nights. Great friendly service and good food. Good selection of domestic beers on tap. Will try again!

Just moved to the area and was looking for a bar / pub and found this place. Not much of a beer selection but reasonably priced and cold. Menu is normal for this type of place. I had beef dip and was ok. I found the menu to be a bit pricey and imagination. Service was very good.

We popped in for a late supper, the place was rocking and packed due to Game 7 for Raptors and Heat, it looked like a long wait, it was a tiny bit for seating, but once seated the service was great, the waiting was minimal and the food was excellent.

First of all let me start off by saying the bad service this afternoon has prompted me to sign up on here just to write about it. The waitress serving us seemed to have little knowledge of what the restaurant served, ineffectively communicated, showed little interest in her job, provided false information when asked questions about items, forgot orders, and...
