Although a popular place with good service, no one at our table was wowed by his/her meal. I didn't like 'the special' at all and was really disappointed.

I asked for a beer, and said I wanted a regular beer glass. The server said no. It had to be served in its special glass. I said I would pay more to receive it in the glass I wanted, he started arguing with me - so I just left it. I paid $19 for a $2 portion of trout.... More

We were looking for a spot to have a few causal drinks. Staff were welcoming and friendly. Quick service but not intrusive or pushy. Great atmosphere and warmth.

Dropped by here with a friend for a quick drink and some snacks. The place was pretty busy. We had beer, chicken tenders, and the sausage/cheese plate. Overall, it was a good experience, and the service was fine.

Attended for dinner with 3 other couples prior to a concert at the KROCK centre. Ordered the "special" of stir fry over rice. Stir fry was bland and soggy, the few pieces of beef were tough and overcooked, and the portion size was ridiculously small. Thank goodness the beer was good. Stick with a burger in this place.

The first time I went I was slightly disappointed in the food but not enough to write a review. The second time the male server was unbelievably rude and the food was once again not very good. Btw dec 2015 is not the date I was there but I was unable to go back any further in time on this... More

An excellent kitchen with a dedication to fresh, local food. Great selection of rotating craft beer. Amazing staff! Nothing fancy, but always delicious. For anyone too "old" for night clubs, but too young to stay in on the weekends, highly recommended.

This is a very friendly restaurant with great food.The service is excellent and the menu choices are extensive. I have eaten there for lunch and supper and spent some time in the evening enjoying the pub-style nightlife. I have never been disappointed. One of the better choices in dining in downtown Kingston.

This is a nice spot to grab a bite, have a cold beer, and watch the game or socialize with friends. The fish an chips were hand made, the fries were freshly cut, and the coleslaw was fantastic. I had a local brew. I would definitely go back.
