We went for dinner because it was close to our hotel. French fries with poutine as appetizer, fish and chips and bread pudding as desert. All were great. Fast and good service.

Great local pub, and they "get" gluten free, and suggested some great dishes. They also have Tito's vodka. Overall, just a great place to meet people after work. Crowded, but staff takes care of everyone well.
