My partner and I have visited this establishment twice and were really impressed with the service and food. However, when we reserved a table to come on New Years Eve as our third visit, not only did the service feel rushed, the waiter rudely interrupting our conversation multiple times when we were clearly not ready to order, and then promptly telling us that the bar would close in 5 minutes as soon as we sat down, some of our food arrived over-cooked and/or cold. I understand that it's New Years Eve and staff more than likely want to go home and celebrate with family and friends, but the reservations at this restaurant were clearly available up until 9:30pm, if not longer too book, the restaurant was fairly quiet and there were only 4 other tables there at the time, they indicated they wanted all customers out by turning on all the lights by the time it was 8:30pm. Regardless, I feel so embarrassed having recommended this to my family to have dinner out for New Years Eve as we were considering ordering delivery, we probably should have done that to avoid the service and quality we received altogether.

Much paprika on the sweet potatoe. Chicken was good though!

Always a great place. Go to their website for some free guacamole and chips! Highly recommend the Saturday / Sunday chicken and waffles. Huge portions. Can get away with splitting it with someone if you ask for a second waffle!

First of all Staff is slow and rude. Went with co workers because I kept receiving emails for Sunday wing night, half price wings with purchase of a drink. They were sold out of wings for wing night, who promotes wing night and doesn’t have wings? So most of us all ordered poutine which the size was great and the food was amazing. But come on you expect us to be satisfied with poutine for dinner, right after we had to satisfy ourselves and go to jack Astor’s across the street. Union chicken only has three appetizers to start, I wanted guacamole and chips and they were sold out :/ and the other option was Brussels sprouts which I’m not sure how that is appealing. We all agree to never go back to union chicken, very very disappointing. My friend also tried a mixed drink and he let me try it and it was really bad. Do not waste your time and money.

A great place with service, simple but unique tasting food. (Try rotisserie chicken and Brussel sprouts). I also admire the attention that is put into the unique decor. I went there multiple times with family and always enjoyed it.

Very disappointed with the fried chicken. My plate was all batter with no chicken. When cold it was even more unappetizing. The sides were ok. Unfortunately disappointed with this first and last time restaurant.

Great patio lunch! Buttermilk battered fried chicken, perfectly prepped and fried; both commented on exact amount of salt used was excellent. OG Style Plate & Uc Viet Notta Banh were the prefect selection from menu. Staff were both knowledgeable & welcoming.

Beautiful weekday night on the patio. First time visiting and would definitely go back. Pulled chicken salad with cauliflower and chickpeas was delicious. The fries were crunchy and hot and great with the peri peri aioli! Could see it being loud if it was full but nice for a girls night on a Thursday.

We were disappointed by the meal. I have been there four times. Most frequently, in May. It was much better on previous occasions. I will give it another chance but lack of consistency can be a dealbreaker. In particular, the salad was bland and the fried chicken portion was about half as large as the time before.

We had an absolutely amazing time and our service was impeccable! They really treated my dad amazing for his birthday and we had a great time

Went for Father’s Day. It was our first time, and we ordered chicken and waffles which was a brunch item. Liked the fried chicken a lot, but I guess the dish as a whole was too sweet and rich for us. But would def go again if we had a hankering for fried chicken. Husband had a very good Caesar. Service was quick and portions were big. Ambience was sort of like a nice sports bar. Had a good time.

Food overall tastes good but very overpriced for the small fried chicken (OG) portion, and that you have to pay separately for expensive (small) sides.....OK to try for the first time, but probably won’t return unless there’s special offers to make it reasonably priced.

I thought the restaurant would be bigger but the ambiance made up for the lack of space. I loved the food but the portion size could have been bigger to match the price of the food. Service was incredible.

In my first visit a couple weeks ago, I tried the OG fried chicken & had been craving it so badly since then; that I had to come back.
I’ve never been a fan of brussel sprouts but I love yours.
The only [minor] negative to my experience:
-at one point we were having difficulty getting our waitress’ attention. All 4-5 girls were having their own conversation behind the bar. We tried waving them down, yelling “hello” for more than 5 minutes. Finally we asked a gentleman clearing a table if he could pls get our waitress.
I’d still come back because the food is fantastic & the waiter I had on my first visit (sadly I don’t recall his name), was extraordinary.
