Décor, inside and out, artistic and tasteful. Atmosphere cozy and pub-like. Service attentive and personal. Food (thin crust pizza and striploin steak) above average in quality. Pleasant experience overall. Would eat there again when in town.

The Brownstone is a pub-style place with ditto food. The fries are exceptionally good and are served in many guises. I stuck with basic Fish 'n Chips and wasn't disappointed. Try their poutines, they look good as well. The caramel-sundae for dessert was equally yummy....More
