I've been here several times unfortunately the last will be my last. I was seated and then ignored. Never got served and as I left I informed them of such and they looked at me blankly. Very difficult and tight parking. The food and beer are normally reasonable for the type it represents.

Sitting in the bar section for the first time, looking around there was curling on two TVs, and NHL Hockey on the other two. Lots of contented groups at every table, and friendly bar staff. Great cocktails, and excellent dinner options. The salmon was superb.

After a few days of holiday food we were craving something different and thought we'd try the Clock Tower Pub. I had never been there before nor had the three other people in our party. Our waiter told us it was 1/2 price wing night, so three of us decided to take advantage of the offer. We ordered mild, medium,... More

The food is expensive and not good. You can get better food at almost any bar. The drink selection is minimal, which wouldn't matter if they had better food. The patio is ok, it's pretty loud with the traffic from the highway. Overall did not enjoy our experience there.

Ice cold food and you can buy better wings at the grocery store. Fries were ROCK hard. I would not eat here again.

Usually I don't bother with bad reviews but I was shocked at how far downhill this pub has gone. Even their pumpkin ale has taken a downward slide. The service was horrible -- the waitress didn't seem to know or care what she was doing, and was outright rude to other members of my party twice. The ale was sprinkled... More

A small group of us went for a birthday lunch at midday, mid week. We waited half an hour for our food which was average at best. Two of us ordered the club sandwich which was a child size portion on baguette. The perogies weren't fresh and the fries didn't taste great. $20 for nachos is a bit steep too.... More

Great location to people watch on the patio. However, the tables are too close together and makes it uncomfortable. The service is extremely slow and the wings are the worst I have ever had. The natchos with pulled pork were good.
