Our mission? Great people helping other great people totally have a blast while enjoying amazing food. Wow, that was a mouthful. But can you blame us? We’re a restaurant. One that specializes in delicious food and great times. Our goal is to make you laugh. And depending on your hot sauce tolerance, cry.

In all seriousness, we take real pride in our food. Try our Cluckin’ Fresh Chicken Fingers, made and seasoned with fresh, never frozen chicken tenders. This isn’t run-of-the-mill pub grub. Our Band of Chefs are influenced by a wide variety of tastes and have travelled across the globe to gain inspiration.

But outside of the kitchen, we find it hard to take ourselves seriously. We have an Elvis booth. For no particular reason. Folks, that really does say it all. We’re sports fanatics, music nuts and love a good joke. If you’re into at least one of those things, we should hang out.

    We found it extremely loud and impossible to have a conversation over the music. The food was mediocre at best and service was lacking. Took forever just to get a water. Will not be returning

    Food and service were phenomenal as usual. The only downside was the music was so loud that we could barely have a conversation. I thought it was much louder than usual.

    It was so loud I couldn’t hear my companion across the table. One of our entrees had a hair in it and the other (pasta dish) had negligible sauce. The dessert we ordered wasn’t available.

    Haven’t been for a while, however thought would take dad for Father’s Day. The menu has changed, great selection and food was good. However, service was terrible, extremely slow, even just getting drinks, and food service was very slow to say that the restaurant wasn’t that busy.

    I thought the food was mediocre at best. The service was good, the side came out cold and they replaced it, but the flavour of the food was not great and I didn’t enjoy it as I should have. I got a birthday brownie that was in name only. It was tasteless and I thought probably old. I don’t expect to go back.

    Good as always. Consistent quality. Only criticism is the rub used on your steaks tasted particularly salty this time, a concern for older people like my partner and myself who enjoy your Memphis steak on many occasions. You might consider using one with less salt or making the rub an option on your menu? I do realize the use of salt enhances the tenderness of the steak. It won't stop us from returning to your restaurant.

    Robyn was a great server. Great location. Noise was loud but not crazy loud. I can’t put my finger on it but this location is better than the others that I’ve been to. It may be the location. I only come to St John’s once a year or so and it’s consistently good. The team there always do a great job.

    Terrible first time experience, requested a patio table and didn’t even get a ocean view table inside. The restaurant was almost empty and they sat us next to another table, given COVID I didn’t think that was appropriate. We were given 1 menu for 3 of us, they forgot to bring our drinks, one of us had chicken fingers that were terrible and 2 of us had the stir fry bowl and they were soaked in sauce to the point none of us finished our meals. Given COVID and the fact that the place was empty I don’t see the reasoning of the bad service.

    Checking in was VERY confusing. We had a reservation, but were told to wait in line. My husband actually went in and asked what we should do as we were going to miss our reservation time while waiting in the line. We then discovered that we were waiting behind people with no reservations. Several others in the line had the same issue. Door staff were NOT at all helpful. Having two lines would solve this issue - one for reservations and one for walk ins. The food was good, but honestly, the confusion upon arriving at the restaurant is enough to put me off visiting again.
