I was not enraptured with the very greasy onion ring appetizer or the Aroncini - both were also too salty. Wrong choice for lunch but there was no cod that day.
Their fish and chips and cod tacos are always very good though.

Went here to celebrate my birthday with friends, it was absolutely fantastic!!!!! Between us we ordered the duck wings, onion rings, Mac and cheese, cauliflower, fish and chips and chicken tacos and everything was top notch, not one thing was just “ok”, all was excellent. It was quite busy and service was still very quick and our server Gabe was great!!! Will 100% be back ☺️☺️☺️

Not a place I would think about revisiting. Nothing special,
Just meh. Food was good but ambiance reminded me of a bay restaurant trying to be cool. Server was perturbed that we asked for a better table. What is the point of a reservation at a place that takes walk-in’s, if you’re going to be seated at a mediocre table??

I've only ever had the fish and chips, but, according to the missus, I'm a "fish snob". So, it must be some good!

Great restaurant in Churchill Square, lots of parking. Our waiter was fantastic, Always a choice for special occasions Fort Amherst Pub offers a range of fantastic meals for both the fine diner and the person who appreciates good tasting foods. We tried the Rex Gout-y’s burger and it was delicious. Chef Evan Bursey never lets us down when it comes to flavor.

Third time coming to this establishment, and I continue to be wowed. The food is always outstanding. Gabe and the staff are top tier and are pros at what they do. Can’t wait to see the new renovations completed. Going to be awesome. If you’re reading this review and haven’t been to this Pub, get your keys and get down there. Thank me after.
