Our experience was good and not so good. Most of the entrees were quite good, but the caesar salad was mediocre (bland and dry). One of our group of 8 had a problem with the entree - wait staff was told by management they could only offer a free dessert. After some back and forth they finally agreed to take... More

Another place with good food, great waiters and ambiance. A bit more expensive that some, but mainly we laughed and said "Toronto Prices".. We did have a good time.

The venue is unique, the service is excellent and the food is good. With an emphasis on good. My son and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It is open on... More

Average pub style food at a premium price. Even though the place was busy the service was prompt and the waitress was pleasant. The owner was there but didn't greet anyone as such.

The staff were very friendly and the location is very close to the "Kee to Bala" concert hall. The food was good but overpriced. You're paying for the location.
