This was our first visit in over 1 1/2 years since Covid and we appreciated being able to reserve a table walk right in.
Our waitress was very friendly and prompt with all items and service.
It was lovely evening out for us!!
Thank You

Made a reservation last night with my girlfriend. Drinks took forever and when we did get them they were not mixed right ALL OF THEM . Also my gf asked for a half oder ribs and gave her a full rack. Bathrooms were dirty and they were out of paper. Disappointed to say the least

Basic pub food. Small portions and big prices. Questionable sizes on wine—-9 ounce looked more like 6 ounce. Short staffed as everywhere but the only one server did her (their) best.

Made a reservation just to find out there weren’t table available when we arrived and was told by a staff member that you can’t make reservations.

Responded on April 20, 2021

Hi Jenna, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. At the Vernon Match location, we absolutely accept reservations online, as well as over the phone. This Friday night, we were at capacity and our team under estimated how long tables would stay seated for, causing a delay in us seating your reservation. Please accept our sincerest apologies in the seating delay. We hope to see you back again soon.

We went for brunch and the the first cup of coffee was cold...but when brought to the attention, they were happy to brew a fresh pot. Music could have been a little more relaxed.

There was way too many items on the menu that were not available. I asked for 2 different draught beers, not available. My wife wanted to order the calamari and then the cob salad, both not available. We decided at that point to leave and go somewhere else. Good grief, if it’s on your menu it should be available.

Thank you for your feedback. Please accept our apologies for not having all of our menu items available on opening night. We did have some challenges with our suppliers being able to get all of our products shipped to us on time for our reopening after us being closed for one year. These were temporary issues that have been rectified. We look forward to seeing you again soon, with all 12 of our tap beers available! Cheers.

Well it was Valentine’s Day so ya it was busy... did not know how long it was going to take to get our food though. Three of us there and it took over an hour to get our food and when it came my steak was definitely well done instead of medium and was like warm... I didn’t send it back as I didn’t want to wait that long again and to be honest I was really frickin hungry LOL... I’ll go back but it was not the best experience

Hi Derek, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and thank you for your patience on Valentine's Day! We were extremely busy, but this is too long to wait for food. In the future, please bring these issues to a manager's attention so we can try to find a solution for you. We hope to see you back again soon, and please accept our apologies for the over cooked steak, and long wait that you experienced.

Made reservations for a birthday dinner for 10 adults. Was contacted later and said our reservations were cancelled because a UFC fight was on TV and the restaurant would be busy!? As the service is questionable at the best of times, we felt between that and being unable to make a reservation we would just go elsewhere. We did return later to see the excellent live band and had great service from one gentleman (outside on the patio) then NO service from the gal inside (didn't come by once in an hour or more).

Some dishes were unacceptable and had to be sent back. Beer was barely cool, not cold. Everything took far too long given we were one of the only tables and we were there a lot longer than we should have been. Frustrating experience overall.

The overall experience was not bad but it wasn’t great either. The prices for their pasta specials was not bad ($10 per pasta), but the actual quality of the food wasn’t great. The servers were super nice and helpful, and definitely did their job. It’s just the quality wasn’t there. Nothing was terrible but it just didn’t really satisfy our expectations based on the reviews.
