Very good beer, large choice, good explanation from the waitress. Nice and ''pitoresque'' interiors. The service was good and quicker as much restaurant in Quebec. Our meals was good, with large portion, for example, the salmon tartare is one of the best I know for a good price.

The service was polite and friendly. The menu, while without any surprises, was good. The beer is excellent and the food is basic.

If you are a beer lover or just want to have a good meal with a good beer, this is the place! We have tried the sample "palette" (regular and strong) and both were delicious! We will go back soon! Thanks

Best beer, best food, best people, best ambiance! Just beside the St-Maurice River, if you ever go to Shawinigan, this place is a must. Just make sure you advance book on the weekends!
