Except for the loss of employment, the closing of this establishment is a blessing. Some regulars naturally must miss it for the cheap beer and camaraderie, but surely even the 'regulars' must have suspected its glory days were long gone. The only sensible person in the whole place seemed to be the single, overworked and doubtlessly underpaid (inevitably female) bar... More

Been in this local watering hole a number of times, on my own and with buddies for wings and beer etc. and it serves the immediate community as just what it purports to be : a sports bar in the old 60s "guy" style. The food is so-so to unexceptional. The beer is cheap. The occasional live music entertainment is... More

The most horrific food had. Fish and chips over done and in old oil. BF had hot dog, thru up all night. Service is terrible. Most some servers are only familiar with working at the local strip club. Owner doesnt care IMO. Would not recommend. Dont bring children!

I was here on Sunday to watch football on what was quite possibly the most uninteresting date ever. Menu had the basics. Date ordered a chicken wrap which he said was decent. Fries were pretty good too and the price was really good. Lots of beers on tap and also by the bottle. Normally I end up paying around 7... More

I found this place because they were only ones in town showing the Flames/Canucks hockey game. Bartender - "Joe" - was very friendly and made sure my glass was full. The place was full of regulars and you can see why people would keep coming back. Steak sandwich was tasty but a bit tough.
