                                The rain ruined our experience; overall great; would have been nice if they would have not charged us for the drinks that never arrived on our table ( we had to leave due to rain)

                                Made a reservation for dinner, drove from Mississauga to get there. When we arrived they were completely closed and didn't tell us they would be closing or cancel our reservation. Thankfully we were able to get a last minute reservation somewhere else, otherwise it would have been a completely ruined evening. Very frustrating, especially when you don't live closeby. They need to create a new system if they are planning on closing unexpectedly so the guests don't waste their time going all the way there if they won't be open.

                                They have arbitrary rules .. we weren’t allowed to sit till everyone in our party was present yet we watched people walk in and join two separate tables. One table also exceeded 4 people limit

                                I went with my friends to watch the game right when patios opened up and the place was amazing, although slightly pricey the vibe was great food was ever better, the staff were fun and friendly can’t wait to go again, would highly recommend to anyone!

                                It was closed. Open table is very misleading and doesn’t have the correct information.

                                It was incredible. Even though they were closed amidst a government mandated lockdown, Petty Cash somehow managed to wow us from afar.

                                With the circumstances at hand, we had a great experience. Staff always friendly food and drinks spot on. Best part was the ambiance, fireplace on the tv, heaters so there was no chance of being cold and everyone is always friendly.

                                I loved the food! The portions are small but delicious which was great for snacking between drinks. The vibe of the night was great with friendly, fun people. The dj picked popular throwback songs that everyone couldn't help but sing and dance to. I will definitely be coming back!! I just wouldn't suggest getting a table. We barely saw our server later in the night and it was hard getting water refills.

                                The restuarant/ bar was great but the food is about a 2/5. The 1/2 half chicken was raw in the middle and so was the burger. Overall love the live band and the experience.

                                The $6 deal was excellent for the sliders - really terrific sliders! The service was great too. And $1 an ounce wine is a huge draw! The turnovers seemed expensive even at $6 but that was my only issue. My friends and I had a great time and I would come back for the app deal and $1 an ounce wine for sure.

                                We arrived early for reso. Had a drink at bar. Plastic glasses, warm cava and dirty tables. Literally 7 other people in restaurant and tables not clean? Needless to say we didn't stay to eat

                                This is definitely more the place to go on a Friday or Saturday night out. Otherwise, the music was so loud we had to scream to hear one another. I genuinely couldn’t tell who was staff and who were friends of staff or customers. It honestly felt like we were invading on their staff party/that we weren’t meant to be there. Our server was nice enough but you could tell everyone didn’t want to be there/didn’t want to be doing their jobs.

                                Great little gastropub with VERY competitive pricing. Definitely reccomend the queso and beef tacos. I ordered 5 dishes as I found I wanted to try most of it. Will return happily and congrats on 1 year

                                The overall experience was enjoyable, though my jacket went missing and upon trying to contact them about their lost and found, there was no answer on their phone the several times I called and no response to a voice message left regarding the lost item either. Their customer service is lacking in this regard and would like this matter addressed.

                                Petty Cash's Cinco de Mayo party was so poorly planned-- we had a reservation and showed up on time, however, it took about 15 mins for a server to even acknowledge us and bring us waters and a menu. By the time we got to place our order they had run out of a few menu items. We attempted to order again, only to be told they had run out of food again. We ended up leaving. Not a great first impression, will just stick to coming here for drinks (if anything).

                                The advertised deal was greatly misleading. The deal was "$1 wings and $1 beers", but you had to get a regular priced beer, not a $1 beer, in order to get the wings deal (which at $1 a wing, is not that much of a deal). And then we found out that the "$1 beers" were 2 oz small sample sized beers of their house beer, which works out to the same price as a pint, so not even a deal. On top of all this, they ran out of wings at 8pm??? On their own prescribed wing night. Probably not going here again.
