One of the best average price restaurant in the Byward Market since many years & one of the places to eat nachos in the city. I especially like the "Dirty" Martinis. A perfect balance of good pub food, drinks, good service & ambience. Added to this 2 year old review: still the best nachos around in my opinion & even though not drinking alcohol now, they have very good Virgin Ceasar drinks.View more

Student central. Younger crowd, music hits all genres, super loud, seems like a pre spot. Extensive drink menu, & deals. 10$ triples. Service lacked, slow, but delivered with warm smiles. Spinach dip was so so good & huge with mini naan & tortilla chips. Burger was dry but still great. Side salad generously dressed. Fries were very salty & not hot. Seems like the perfect student pre-night out spot. Lots of big groups.View more

We were there this past weekend on a beautiful Sunday afternoon . The food was delicious , as was the ambiance however, Sean , our amazing waiter made the whole experience so memorable.... Sean was professional, offered great suggestions & looks just like a well-known movie star...I had to get a selfie with this Hollywood doppelganger ☺! Next time you are in the area please stop by this great little gem & grab a bite ! Thanks again Sean for a fun afternoon !View more

Been here a few times. The drinks are a great deal, & the food is alright. The service however is almost always poor. The servers run from inattentive to downright rude, & the security guards on the busy nights love their macho posturing.View more

Great place to go to sit on the patio with friends for food & a drink.

All our meals were delicious & the server was really friendly.

I highly recommend the barbacoa tacos with hot sauce. I would have taken a pic but they didn't last long. :)View more

I went to this location with some friends on Wednesday, September 28th. We waited to be seated for 15 minutes (we were the only ones here) & then a hostess finally came & didn’t even acknowledge us. Our server was a short white male with tattoos, he was rude & spilled water all over my jeans & didn’t even apologize. The food was ok but nothing special but the service ruined the whole experience. I decided to not give a tip & the server said a passive aggressive “thank YOU for the tip” out loud. After we paid we aggressively grabbed the machine & didn’t say anything to our table.View more

Nice place. Food was pretty good. We ordered nachos, wings & calamari to start. Burgers & tacos for main course. The service was really good. A little on the expensive side, but overall was good.View more

Nice place in the market area with a good vibe. The drinks menu is great, I had the fajitas which were OK. Good place to chill.
