Instead, the poutine was basically potatoes cut up like French fries, but seemingly boiled, and served with gravy, light curds, and scallions. They were incredibly bland, and... More

The Senate is a fantastic place to have a casual meal, talk & watch a game while enjoying family time. Quick service & great food with generous portions. John was friendly & took great care of us while we were there, going so far as to try to find the game we wanted to watch. We have been there several... More

Hello, I went to the Senate on a friends recommendation and glad I did. We went to see the Sens game and found the environment to be fun and definitely fan friendly.
