Pleasant atmosphere with an interesting display of canoes on walls and hung from ceiling (though we were disappointed none of the staff we asked knew anything about some of the unusual canoes). The food was ok. Bread and butter were above average. Starters were so...More

Let me first say that I have read the negative reviews and I was stunned. I’ve been to Canoe Club a couple of times now and I have never witnessed a more skilled bartender. He can make anything, and he knows how to make it...More
