The food is excellent, the prices reasonable, a wide variety of beers and hard liquors to choose from. If I had a negative comment, it would be this; the music is often too loud.

Been here a few times in the last couple of months... food is OK, nothing really special. Reasonably priced for what it is.

Relaxed, pub atmosphere with space available for people with kids too. Good place for lunch. Outside patio space is great.

Had supper there with some work friends. The food was good, the service was good. The place has a nice 'homey' atmosphere. My negatives for this were very minor. The tables were a bit cramped 3 of us had to juggle for space.and the chairs were uncomfortable. All the same, I'll go there again next time I am in Smithers.

Too long service times, 45 minutes to wait for steak and chips which also came almost cold. No good !

The service was reasonably good,but our first two choices of wine were out of stock. The server then recommended the most expensive bottle on the wine list. Very tacky.

I ordered the Hunter Schnitzel which doesn't appear to be on the TripAdvisor menu, a bit pricey for the area I think ($25), but delicious. My husband order the daily special, a pasta dish with "pork" it described. We expected chunks of pork, not sausage and the sausage was more like cheep hot dogs. Not impressed at all with this...

Pulled pork potato skins are amazing. Great for large groups and has a great atmosphere. Private rooms upstairs that can be booked as well for business, etc. Right on Main Street.
