A great find this one, after coming across this hidden gem, we visited another 3 or 4 times during our visit, lunch and dinner-perfect for comfort food, burgers, fries, nachos etc all fair priced and yummy! At dusk the place would fill with all the boarders and skiers in for a drink or two and party mood!

Saw other reviews and decided to try this restaurant. Maybe a little off the tourist path, so both locals and tourists there! We love that. Great DJ came later in the evening. Not for those who want a quiet dinner; this place rocks. Fun drinks and fun food!

We went for happy hour one night and Taco Tuesdays a couple of days later. Tacos were good, drinks were OK (we had a margarita pitcher). Limited cocktail selection, but the ones they have are good.

This place annoys me so much but I continue to return because the food is so good. The whole place has an air of amateur about it. The service is painfully slow, tables and chairs sticky, toilets are falling apart and the music around brunch time is no different from when you go at night (its banging). Just please sort... More

Busy, friendly, English speaking bar. Not a place to go for French culture, but the beer is cheap (well, for the area if you buy local and by the pitcher), and they have some monster burgers. English speakers will feel right at home.
