    Horrible experience. Serving staff were rude to us after waiting almost 15 minutes for someone to come to our table and one of them even discussed how much they hated one of the floor managers and said she was crazy, which was completely disrespectful and unprofessional. Blew my mind. Will never go back.

    The food was delicious! I had the Buffalo cauliflower & fried chicken sandwich - probably the most flavourful fried chicken sandwich I’ve ever had. The restaurant was short staffed especially with a concert happening right across the street that night but our server handled it really well and he did an awesome job. He kept a positive attitude and was really friendly and as attentive as he could be given the circumstances! Definitely a good spot to grab a bite and some drinks before a show - but be smart and make a reservation! It’s not the biggest space so unless you had a reso you were likely waiting 1hr+ for a table

    Came here for dinner and drinks before a concert at history. Service was great and the food was delicious! We had the buffalo cauliflower bites to start and we both got the crunchy chicken burgers with fries for dinner. Everything was great and we will definitely come back again.

    We chose to grab food and a few drinks at this spot before a concert. The concert venue was conveniently located across the street from this restaurant. I noticed their rooftop patio from the outside but it did not look open. Seems like a cool feature in the summer! The interior is small, with a warm ambiance and decor. It was very busy on a Sunday afternoon. The food was decent (a little pricy) and came pretty quickly. The service was a little slow, but friendly—presumably because it was busy. It took some time before someone greeted us initially at our table. No waters were offered (I had to ask twice). Otherwise my experience at Murphy’s law was okay. The location of the establishment is a great selling point! I would dine there before a concert in the future. :)

    Service was a bit slow but our server was very busy so I understand. She was very nice and personable. The food came out quickly. The atmosphere was very crowded and the dining area was quite cluttered and loud. The beer selection on tap was great and the drink specials were great too. I would go back at a less busy time, I was there at 7 pm.

    We arrived and hostest had said someone took are reservation before we got there. Our reso was for 8:30 and we arrived at 8:15. How does someone take your reso for two tables for 6 before the reso time?!? It was a birthday party. The organization was horrible. You should start putting names for reso because it’s just stupid. I don’t believe two groups of 6 came in at around 8:30 to take our spot, there is jus now way. You clearly were unorganized and overbooked. Awful experience.

    Only negative thing is that they were overwhelmed with the number of people trying to get seated since there was a concert across the street at History. Those with reservations like myself even struggled to get through the crowd at the entrance.

    I was out with my son having dinner before the concert across the road at History. Needless to say as it’s pretty much the only large restaurant in the area, the place was packed! They still did their best to seat everyone with reservations, so thankful I made one, as they were turning away walk-ins. Based on the volume, service was still very good. We both had the stein of beer which is a massive. My son had the burger and fries which was great, and I had the wings. A little disappointed at the serving size of 7 small wings, otherwise crispy and tasty. My only ‘complaint’ was the state of the women’s washroom. Due to the surge of preconcert people, I am somewhat forgiving that they did not have the capacity to keep it clean.

    We were on our way to a concert across the street at the new music venue "History". We arrived on time and everything was in order ( we were greeted and lead to our table ....perfect ). As the restaurant started to fill up as concert time grew nearer the restaurant seemed to get busy and maybe the staff became a little "overwhelmed" because at that point, our drinks came out "wrong" but were corrected quickly, service started to slow down due to the sheer number of people that arrived for dinner and drinks before the concert and there was a lengthy wait if you wanted another drink etc. Overall a great location to have dinner / drinks before a concert and everything was to our expectation.

    Went for food and drinks before a concert at History. It was my first time at History and Murphy’s Law. I must say going to Murphy’s Law before a concert will become a tradition for me. The vibes are immaculate and our server Emily attended to our every need I would recommend!
