Food is good but not enough selection.
Focused on whiskey and they do have a great selection of them.

Get service, great venue.

Menu was small and limited, a lack of gluten free options for our 2 friends with GF intolerances.

Overall great place, food was expensive for what was small ‘tapas style’ dishes.

A larger menu would attract me back in the future

This has become one of our favourite lunch venues when my friends and I gather for our once a month get together.

The food is always freshly made and of great quality!

Vanessa was our server again and she was excellent as ever! She’s always smiling and always helpful!

I’ll be back again this Sunday for a friend’s birthday lunch!

Not very crowded for Father’s Day. Food was good but stuff French toast was very doughy and kinda heavy. Several comments about english muffins being tough and difficult to cut with the eggs Benny’s but taste was good.

Food and drinks were delicious. It took quite a while for food to come, so we did have to ask for the bill while we were eating to make it to a show. Would have liked to see more gluten free options, but the staff was very knowledgeable and accommodating.

Overall experience was ok. Drink menu was great. Food menu was a bit odd. Portions were very large. Overall good was very heavy and rich but lacked flavor. Decor and ambiance was great. Service was great as well. Might come back. Was far from a bad experience but was a little underwhelming.

We decided to try it out before our CPO Concert. Were not expecting anything special. We started with a few drinks at the bar. They have a great selection of whiskey. For supper my wife had the Braised Beef and it was fall off the bone tender. I had the chicken sandwich and it also was fantastic. Lightly battered breast meat served with fresh cut fries.
Both plates better that expected. Will be back.

The old fashioned was as delicious as everyone said. I was disappointed by the ambience, thought it would be more intimate, but the tables are very close together and when we walked in and sat down, it felt like we came late to a dinner party as we squeezed in between two parties. The food was good, we had some appetizers: the brisket, cauliflower, and ribs, but nothing was outstanding. Overall, it was good but, based on the high rating, we were a little disappointed.
