    Nice staff, but maybe they need more. Service was slow, as usual. Most of the food was great, but the pricier meals were not worth it. The brisket was delicious. It’s always packed so make reservations. Also it’s closing this month.

    What a FAB Surprise...Great BBQ Ribs and Butter Mild Fried Chicken! This is a very casual, laid back atmosphere. They were playing the most amazing old school Blues / Jazz. The restaurant it's self is a little used looking but that adds to the authentic experience. Highly recommend. We will be going back 4sure.

    A very "grunge" type of restaurant. Eclectic decor, bare plywood walls, folding chairs and picnic tables. Carries it a bit too far with dirty, oil stained torn drink menu. Prices are high considering the "hole in the wall" ambiance. Food is good. Crack buns and buffalo cauliflower are terrific. Only 5 decent sized shrimp in the shrimp main but I wasn't unsatisfied. Friendly, accurate service.

    What a waste using Open Table, I was not only rewarded with the worst table in the place, but the worst table I have seen in recent memory. When I told the server the table was unacceptable and I had gone to the trouble of reserving a table, I was told “ well this is a reserved table”. For the record, the table was at the end of the bar, and by the kitchen door, with the door propped open, so I could see where all the dirty dishes were stacked, and all the servers passed back and forth...there shouldn’t have even been a table there.

    Nice people running the restaurant, but I didn't find the food up to expectation. The ribs were fine, but nothing special. The salad the waiter said was so good was....just a salad. Dull. The brisket had little taste.

    I will say that the service and ambiance was fantastic. The brisket sandwich was pretty terrible. While it was dipped in some form of liquid, the meat itself was very dry; only 1 of every 5 bites was flavorful. While I did not care for my sandwich, as I looked around I felt like I ordered the completely wrong thing. I saw the ribs and fried chicken being served to multiple tables and it look amazing. I would 100% go again to try those items, I was just unfortunate enough to, seemingly, pick the one item that turned out to be a major dud. I would recommend the place to others, but I would also tell them to stay away from the sandwiches.

    Despite on line rave reviews our experience was disappointing. The Nashville Chicken portion was modest and greasy with the coleslaw portion small and dry. My wife’s shrimp dinner came 20 minutes after mine with no explanation from our server other than it takes time. What she got was five shrimp and fries in a basket! We suspect they forgot our order until we reminded them.

    The food was AMAZING as per usual, but I had an unfortunate experience in the washrooms. One toilet was broken and would not flush, there was no toilet paper in it and the other had some leftover situations in the toilet, which was very unsettling. Clean up in the washrooms needs to be much more regular, as that is a huge turn off at the end of an excellent meal.

    This place has fantastic food! We had the oysters, hush puppies, pork rinds, buttermilk chicken and the Nashville hot chicken. LOVED the Nashville hot chicken - it's my new favourite chicken in the city!!! Service was good; they were very accommodating even though we were 30 min early for our reservation and quite busy. It is a small place with simple (and sometimes shared) seating. It was a bit loud but it fit in with the overall vibe of the place so no real complaint there (more so just an FYI in case your looking for a quiet date night).

    Food was great, company was great, the service was atrocious. You should not feel like you are inconveniencing the server to order an additional round of drinks, the final of which never arrived. I am only giving 1 star for service because I have to.

    Waitress convinced us to get a pitcher instead of 4 separate drinks because it was "4 1/2 drinks and 45 bucks." Even with a reservation and being patient with their short staff, we felt rushed out. Why did I mention the pitcher? it was LESS than 4 full drinks so it was a worse option...when the bill came. It was 50$. I mean, I know it's like 15 bucks but it was another reason to try out a different spot, even when in the area.

    This is a nice little neighbourhood spot. If I lived nearby I would probably be getting take-out on a regular basis. The food and service were very good, and the prices were good. My friends and I will all visit again, but next time we will sit on the patio where the music did not seem to be as loud. It was a good selection of tunes, but the music was so loud we had to yell at each other to be heard.

    Great food, horrible service. Either the server was spaced out or just plain bad but she took ages to get anything, forgot items we ordered, charged them to us anyway, would be doing her own thing while many tables needed something including ours. It's a shame because the food is really good here

    Seated outside during wind storm despite having made reservation weeks in advance. Needed to take our food to go. When we got home we noticed we didn’t have all of the food we ordered. Went back to pick it up and had to wait an hour for 2 items. So disappointing.
