Great atmosphere - Very, very busy before a concert, but service was fantastic & very friendly. Menu is varied, food was great - No big brewery products, but it just doesn't matter. My first visit, and can't wait to go back!! 6 outta 5!!

We are a local hidden favorite in the exchange district. Located 2 block from the MTS Center and behind the Burton Cummings Theater, we are a popular spot for pre and post drinks & grub. We focus on homemade food and supporting local as much as possible. "It`s a tavern not some trendy Gastro Pub people. Good Beer, Grub & Music. Bob`s your Uncle"
