Stopped by to quench my thirst and soak in the incredible views of the working bay. A great place to stop for a drink or bite to eat.

Highly unsatisfied with the food. It was costco fries, with meat thinner than my slice of cheese- Waitress was incredibly RUDE. Giving me sass.. purposely ignoring.. Atmosphere sucks- Id rather eat stale bread. I will not be returning again. Do NOT recommend this place !

The inside of this pub Is truly a classic pub with a lot of rough edges but the food it pretty good and the view is awesome - sit by the window or outside in the warmer months and you can’t go wrong!

First of all the renos people talk about are mostly invisible, not much to report there. Don't forget to use the under the restaurant parking if there is little on the street. Handy little tip on a busy weekend where people are hunting for half...More
