We stopped here for a drink and perhaps an appie - but the service was so poor we had a quick drink and headed to Finley's! Both our server and the bar tender seemed 'out of it' and NOT customer focused at all. I had to go to the bar to get our drinks because our server didn't come back... More

Fantastic burger, I had the one with peanut butter, sounds odd but tasted great. Local Stout was a good accompaniment. Staff were friendly and the service was very good.

Modern sports bar decor. Lay out is great for watching sports, playing a game of pool or just socializing with friends. Even though it is primarily a sports bar the open lay out has areas that are a bit away from the main bar area and are good for having a conversation/socializing. All the food we ordered was very good.... More

The food was decent, nothing special. You could honestly die of old age waiting for a server to come take your order, and their idea of a refill is letting your ice melt.

We had the Big Kona pizza that had bacon, pineapple and chorizo sausage....it was YUM-O!! The wood fired crust was cooked to perfection.

If you have any type of dietary needs don't eat here. The staff server we had, today, was difficult and was not accommodating at all and would not even try to help my friend who has Celiac. I am vegetarian and there is not a lot to choose from. We spoke to the owner and now we know where the... More

Great food. There are a lot of good places to eat in Nelson but this one is overlooked sometimes as a place to get great eats because it's a sports bar. In fact, the beer here is far less appealing than the food. There are good daily food specials here that must be attended and almost everything on the menu... More

Hi Ben C, Thanks so much for your nice words about our food, however, I believe you may be mistaken regarding our beer. We do not carry Stanley Park beer on tap. Our current beer taps consist of Okanagan Springs, Fernie Brewing Co., Nelson Brewing Co., Prohibition Brewing Co., & Granville Island, all of which are BC beers, and with... More

I've eaten here many times over the past few years. Always friendly service and good food. Note worthy: There Dry ribs are fantastic. The steaks have always been good. And recently had there lasagna Roll which I quite enjoyed. If your looking for a pub atmosphere with solid food, give it a try.

I just wanted to say that the dry ribs are probably the best I have ever had. The meat literally fell off the bone and the taste was amazing. They were marinated for a long time in soy sauce and coke which is why they were so tender and tasty.
