We happened on this restaurant and were very impressed. The portions were large and very good. Service was great and our waitress, Jessica, was personable and well informed on the menu items. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We found this restaurant by researching online. We are often disappointed. This restaurant was great. Location is fantastic. Food was delicious. Seafood poutine was interesting and delicious. Fish and chips as well. Great craft beers and good service.

The Shroom Burger is one of the BEST I have EVER had! Thank you for NOT simply putting a portobello mushroom on a bun and calling it a burger! Instead you actually cut up the mushroom and blended it with nice herbs and spices and...More
