It was only a burger and fries, on special for $10.95, which should mean that it would be hard to screw up. You would think. The bun was burnt (but only one side) and the burger was so burnt that the patty was crunchy. The coleslaw tasted like bleach or some other cleaning product. The fries were OK. Overall the... More

I remember coming to this place as a 20 year old for a great hangover breakfast! The breakfast poutine is my ultimate favourite and the price was awesome... it use to come with meat and veggies... now everything is over priced and the meat and veggies are extra!!! Like, really ! How much would it actually cost to just have... More

Really, is this what you call tenderloin tips... it was thin strips of cheap steak that was tough with a very runny distasteful gravy, with canned mushrooms and tiny small pieces of onions and peppers for $14.95. This was not what we were expecting and were very disappointed. The fries were good, but the coleslaw was at room temperature so... More

I have always really enjoyed my meals at the Buccaneer, the recent Rib Special was amazing. I will admit that my favorite breakfast spot was the Portland(now closed), but the service at the Bucc made it a close second.

An absolutely fabulous time at a very affordable price. The steak was great and the beer was cold. Best part was the dessert - yes I paid extra for that! Friendly staff working hard. This was a fun evening.

This is a Pub/Tavern. We stopped in for breakfast one morning and I was very surprised and happy. This place can set an example for many others. OK it is a bit dark and dated but again, it's a pub. However .... Service was prompt and with a smile, then you look around and realize the difference ..... This place... More

The food isn't winning any Michelin stars, but if you are expecting quality pub food, you will be more than satisfied. Portions are large, food is fresh and I would even say impressive for a pub. For example, the side of veggies I got with my meal (chicken burger) was not a cup of frozen veggie mix, but buttered carrots,... More

Well she ordered the Breakfast poutine.I had to have a taste and it was surprisingly good. What will they think of next? Great place to have a... More

I hadn't been to the Buccaneer's Pub for years since moving off of the west side. Now it is one of my favourite spots! The food is absolutely delicious and consistent. It is always hot and fresh. The staff is very friendly and the restaurant is always very clean. I cant wait to go back - maybe tonight. It's worth... More
