This small cosy bar is a nice spot for a couple of drinks and a bite to eat after a day out and about on a chilly Calgary day. It can't be seen easily from street as it's down some stairs. Service was good, beers were cold and food was tasty. Great to see New Zealand SB on the menu,... More

We booked here because they were the only place close to work that took a last minute reservation for 12. Good customer service from the waitress even though there were a few mess ups.

Yesterday my co-worker and I went looking for lunch - we found a jewel beyond imagination. If you need Imagery - I was delighted to eat the whole thing. Au jus that exposed other dips as frauds.

The waitress was nice but that's about it. The happy hour appies and margarita were terrible, super dated place, burger wasn't very good and at $22 for a plain burger and tiny side salad, way over priced.

I like it for its location. It is never too noisy there and you can carry on a conversation without loud music blasting in your ears. Price is also reasonable and better than the more modern establishments.

There should be nothing to dislike, it is a hot meal to feed a crowd. For the times we spent there, I only saw people enjoying food than complaining. It should tell you something.
