    I had a reservation for igloo seating at 4:45 pm on Saturday, February 3rd. Despite receiving a text at 4:50 pm stating that my table was ready, upon arrival, the young male host mentioned that it was still occupied. He suggested alternatives like sitting at the bar or an indoor table, assuring us he'd notify us when the igloo was available. Unfortunately, after about 40 minutes, he didn't follow up, and we remained unseated. Despite the reservation hiccup, Amy at the bar provided exceptional service, although the chicken sliders were overdone, the buffalo cauliflower was enjoyable. It was disappointing to drive 30 minutes with a reservation and not be seated in the intended igloo.

    Way too expensive! It should not cost $100 to go out to eat with my 12 year old. The food was good. The service was good. $13 for a Tito’s and water is a bit excessive. Thank God we had a gift card.

    The food was bad. My rice was dried up maybe not cooked and had no flavor, like they got some old rice out of the back of the fridge, Very small portions. And the price for what you received was astronomical. I will never eat here again.

    Server was very poor in service taking over 15 minutes for drink order when the restaurant only had one table sat in the room. Then the beer we wanted wasn’t on tap after he took the drink order (not his fault), then at the end of the service they charged us for the beer (probably forgot and I do understand) just very disappointed for our first time not feeling like it was a great place to go there.

    We had reservations for igloo dining at 6:15 pm - the igloo space was wet with condensation and cold. The heaters weren’t powerful enough to warm up the igloo to make it comfortable. The staff was very accommodating and moved us inside. The inside decor was festive and the holiday drink options we delicious and holiday themed.

    We ate outside in an igloo. They texted us 10 minutes before reservation time that it was ready. Igloo was warm with heater. Service was wonderful, waitress came out right away, very friendly. Food was hot and yummy. Pretzel and cheese dip appetizer was delicious, gone in seconds. Had chicken and waffles, burgers, fish and chips, soup, Reuben egg rolls, all was good. Extensive beer selection and tasty. A great night.

    I normally love Ale Mary's food and the atmosphere of the Christmas pop-up. The waitress was amazing. However, I was sat at a table where one person had to sit on the bench near the window, which is not a seat. I was way higher than the person I was eating across from and super uncomfortable the entire time. My back is still hurting the next day. While I love their food, I was disappointed this time because the bun on my sandwich was soaked from the chili sauce on my fries.

    We arrived about 15 mins early for our reservation, and there was no host at the stand. The restaurant was busy and seemed a little short staffed. Once seated, we ordered cocktails. They have a plentiful list of holiday themed drinks that are served in holiday themed cups. Nice touch. We ordered the poutine for an appetizer. This was disappointing. The cheese curds were not melted, and the overall temperature was not hot. For the entrees, we ordered the Mark Cuban sandwich with onion rings and the B.E.L.T sandwich with fried pickles. Both sandwiches were delicious. Loved the sunny side up egg on the belt. The onion rings were not served hot like the poutine. No complaints about the pickles. Service wasn't bad, so there were no complaints there. Overall, I would dine here again.

    We ate in the igloo dining. No air ventilation in there and smelt like a whole pool floaty. Food and lights were very cool but service was just awful. Waited 15 minutes to get greeted by someone which is fine because they were busy but the whole night? We didn’t get drink for 30 minutes and food for an hour and a half. It was over a 2 hour experience for one drink (which were way to strong) and 2 dinners with an appetizer that the server got wrong and had to wait a total of one hour for an appetizer. Not coming back.

    What a great experience. The atmosphere, drinks and appetizers were wonderful. I ordered the steak tacos and was underwhelmed. The server was great but it did take some time from ordering to the delivery of food. Overall, it was well worth the trip and I plan on returning.

    Holiday pop-up festive atmosphere was nice, but super small portions for a whole lotta $$. When there’s an upcharge of $4.50 to add fries to your sandwich/burger, I’d expect a whole lot more than what was given. Vegan penne pasta tasted good but again… a very tiny portion for $20. I left feeling hungry after $200.00 w/ tip. Granted we got some drinks, but we were only 4 people, and the value just wasn’t there.

    We had igloo seating and waited 20 minutes before anyone even came to take our drink menu. All of the holiday shakes were out of stock, which our child was looking forward to. The food was just mediocre and overpriced. The igloo was not clean and had tissues/paper towel on the floor from previous guests.

    We revered one of their igloos for just 2 of us. We walked into the igloo and the floor was so dirty. Looked like they haven’t cleaned it at all. The table was still dirty and then the heater didn’t work. Asked the waitress how to work it and she said she had no idea. Not very helpful. Finally figured it out to find out it was broken. Also was hoping to have the igloo more festive like advertised but it just had white lights and that’s it. Very disappointed, they could have put more thought into decorating. Will not be back for those igloos again. Not worth it.

    I enjoyed myself but the food was a disappointment. I ordered a BELT and asked that my back not be cooked hard. It was cooked so hard that it was disappointing. The punch was great and the service was wonderful. I enjoyed being in the bubble. The sandwich was terrible and dry! I wouldn’t recommend the restaurant for the good but the drinks and ambience were on point!

    We booked inside and were moved to an igloo outside. We were initially happy about this as there was a group of 6 of us who wanted an opportunity to chat and catch up and it was quite loud inside. However, we were outside quite a long time and it was COLD. The heater wouldn't turn up and we would have to face it towards someone to heat them up. The service was amazing, the food was delicious, the ambience was fun. It was just too cold in the igloo.
