Located in the Hess Village which is not far from downtown (i.e. convenient). Stopped by for a casual beer with some friends to catch-up. Good atmosphere. Fun patio and live music.

Okay Saturday night and only one waiter , what could the reason be? The place is busy and the male staff that is working here is interested in more of what's happening across the street at Gown and Gavel. Why does someone own a pub and not have staff???? Seriously people on the patio and no one is serving, Where... More

I had the nachos - cheese not really melted, but ok. Hubby had philly cheese steak sandwich, said was okay. Son had wings... More

Last summer when I was in my "new to Hamilton" phase, I had heard that there were some good restaurants on Hess Street. Alas, this was't one of them. The food is strictly bar fare --- burgers, salads, and things that come with a ton of fries. And my first two attempts at ordering were greeted with "we're out of... More

Stopped in for a beer on a Monday night. It was open mic night and while music was good metal it was not what we were in the mood for so we moved on. Service was good and the beer cold

Went her before a Shania Twain show. Waited 15 minutes before anyone even gave us a menu, and they only gave us one because I asked them too. An hour and a half went by and we still didn't get our food and we both ordered cheese burgers. The couple next to us ordered two salads and we didn't get... More

Went on a thursday night with some friends since we have fridays off. Saw some live music and they did an amazing job. Drinks were a bit pricey for the quality of the bar. Yet one thing ruined the night. Near the end of the nigt about 1:45 me and my two friends were asked to leave right when the... More

I must agree with most of the negative reviews. Went before the Black Sabbath concert. (2) Tried "50" / Rolling Rock and Bud on tap - all three we not cold enough / cool beer is not tasty. Were given one page crumpled menus that were printed off a computer - very limited menu. Tried two kinds of burgers /... More

Wanted to grab a bite before the sabbath show. Looked like a decent place and had good tunes. Sat down and our order was taken right away. After 25 minutes the same waitress came to us and asked if we ordered anything. Shocked but gave her the benefit of the doubt and ordered again. She apologized. 10 minutes later (35... More
