35 cent wings on Mondays, $4 bar rail several nights a week, it's hard to go wrong! Wouldn't recommend it for families or couples, it gets quite noisy, but a great time for friends looking for a cheap night out!

We had our co-worker's last day celebration here and I was surprised how fair priced it was. 3 beers and half an entree for under $30 was great. There was a pretty good selection when it came to drinks, and our server came by often...More

This place on Elgin is located above a comedy club, but it has a very young crowd. Not the best if you are a little bit older. I would suggest walking down Elgin a little further! Fun if you are around 19 though!

The food has always been decent, but we have never had good service here. The last straw was tonight, when we were continually misled about how long the wait was, told a table was being readied, and then when we inquired about said table 30...More

Great neighbourhood pub. Not as crowded as others, service was efficient and food was great. Left completely satisfied and although the menu was small, it was big in taste. Would definitely have another round here.

Inexpensive drinks. Good food. Half price food. Great place for a business meeting and a snack and not hard on the pocketbook. Fries are good. Burger was tasty and juicy. They serve Ashton Brewery on tap which is a good microbrewery out of Ashton Ontario....More

Just you average bar with your average food and drinks. Monday night is the best though as it .35$ wings (8 wings on a plate). The wings are pretty good too, with a decent amount of meat on them. I would come back, if it...More

Great location for an after work hang out, and the prices are pretty good as well. The service can be slow, but overall, good place to make your local regular stop.

Watered down drinks. Crummy eats. Obnoxious crowd and servers. There's nothing special about this place except the location, and in all honesty, it's a waste of a perfectly good location. Definitely avoid or go to any of the neighboring pubs; go to the Lieutenant's Pump...More
