Not only are there daily specials. This place serves the single-best hamburger on the Island. And you won't feel guilty about eating the roll if you side-order grilled veggies 'stead of French fries.

I went here sober one time with my father big mistake. Started noticing rodents running around and how some of the food ingredients tasted a bit stale. Overall I would only go back drunk and not eat anything.

from the ferry, go down Bay Street to Slosson and it's on the right. Great food (especially the sandwiches and burgers, and the free soda refills), great prices, friendly service.

The food here is OK. Lots of regulars suck up the bar space and they think they're really something special and intellectual. that gets old real fast.

Food's ok. To enjoy this place after 6 PM you need to be under 30 and drunk.

This joint isn't classy, but I don't care. Its a bit on the Yuppie side Just give me great tasting, gourmet style food, and I'll be back. They have a well stocked bar too. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't let that fool ya. Just go inside and enjoy

From the outside of the building to the inside it has very cool murals and art work. They even give you crayons to draw on your paper table cloth. The food and the drinks were great. The service was just ok but the environment made up for it.
