    We went for a breakfast brunch and had the eggs Bennie, they were very good, we did ask for medium but I think they were closer to well done but still very good. The crispy potato cakes were very crispy and tasty. The only problem we had was they are new and we did tell them we had a reservation through open table they just said to pick as table as they were not busy at all. That was the case, we did have fast service and all was very nice. We will most likely be back at some time.

    We made a reservation almost 2 weeks in advance and they called the day of to cancel for a “prearranged event” ??? Why were we able to make a reservation and keep for two weeks if there was a prearranged event? Also canceling on the day of was not cool, pretty bad experience overall.

    Great place with great food! Server was super patient with us and handled splitting the bill between 9 people very well. The bowling alley is very small but surprisingly very challenging so still very fun. The bowling alley did have a few minor technical issues but the servers were fast to fix and resolve the problem. Definitely recommend!

    This is a really fun brand new venue in the University District. I have been there now twice and I would say that while the beer is good the food varies. The Cesar salad there is really good! I would say the food staff probably needs some time to hit their stride. There was enough salt in our food to refill the Dead Sea 😆 Still love it there and will return if anything for the atmosphere.

    First time at banquet but not the last. Kass made the experience so fun and she deserves a raise because she went above and beyond. #1 server in Calgary, she deserves to be appreciated. Worked hard and showed that she cared for the patrons. If you get her as the server you're in for a night 👌🏼 best server at banquet no cap

    Very nice spot, still smelled new. Service was fast and often. Food was fantastic. One of the supervisors seemed to have a hard time controlling the audio in the place as we were trying to listen to the hockey game when suddenly music would start playing or the audio cut out altogether. They finally did end up getting it sorted.

    Great service. Food was good - although really sad they didn't have their Crispy Potato Strolls. Please bring them back!!! All the food could have been just a bit hotter. Everything came closer to warm, than hot. That said, it was all tasty. Good flavours. The lemongrass chicken steamed bao buns were delish. The buns would have been perfect warmer - they would have been just the right amount of softness, but were light and fluffy. The Gochujang mayo is excellent. And the Saskatoon mustard that came with the perogies was also excellent. The Shrimp Gratin was good - again hotter needed, but it did taste a bit fishy. (I've found that with the Argentinian shrimp in other places too.) And the beer battered cheese curds also tasty. Good meal. The free appie for Mother's Day was an added bonus, and the service was on the ball. Definitely good for a casual night out!

    Nice atmosphere and has potential, however service and management is abysmal. We waited over 20 mins for someone to greet us after we were seated. We had get up form the table and ask two different people to get us a server. The first said they would help, then no one came. We then grabbed one of the many servers who were walking by who tried to help us but couldn't. Then drinks took a long time, and the food order wasn't correct. I also don't appreciate having to opt out of a min 18% tip to give an appropriate tip. I understand that this is a new establishment, however there are many bugs to be worked out.
