Pleasant evening with live music and good comfort food with a twist. A little too noisy but it didn't really affect the quality of the evening. Pleasant staff. Food nice but not memorable. Butter tart with ice cream was good...a tad too sweet but scrumptious

Very nice restaurant for lunch. Very active and well located to the QEW. My wife enjoyed the turkey sandwich on multi grain bread. I was a little disappointed with the classic Reuben. I did not like the heavy clove taste to the Corned Beef.
