I’m not happy with the wait time of being served. We have reservation at 6:30PM but we found out that the area we’re seated, the waiter assigned starts their shift at 7pm. So I have to walk around and find a person to get our orders from a different section of the lounge. The server was fine about taking our order but told us again that she’s not assigned to our table and that actual server starts 7PM shift. I recall that this is the same issue last time we ate in this lounge and same issue happened again. The food was good but wait time is poor. Need to assign servers in all sections of the lounge at all times.

Great experience overall, servers were great, there was a point that the kitchen was delayed with our food, and servers realized it right away and were very apologetic and just kept an eye that we were doing ok, and that level of service makes for a good experience.

I have no complaints about the restaurant, except for the music volume that’s way too loud. It’s very difficult having a conversation with people at your table as music is blaring.

Sports Bar
About the restaurant
Our one-of-a-kind Canadian themed sports bar & grill has an extensive menu of appetizers, entrees, drinks and amazing specials every night of the week. You’ll note our Canadian decor starts right when you walk up to our huge Inukshuk at our doors and continues throughout the restaurant in a “cheeky” Canadian fashion. We promise, when you come to The Canadian Brewhouse, you’ll instantly feel at home, because our house is your house…only we have way more TVs! You won’t find a better selection of screens anywhere for the sports you love! We even provide tabletop speakers for those nights when multiple sports and teams are playing.

Never had a bad experience, servers are always fantastic, games always on, USB-A plugs in the wall at all the booths and they have Kokanee gold on tap. Only place I've ever been to including liquor stores that sell it

We went early on mothers day and it was quiet. Food was good. It's a fun place. We wanted to play archery but 3 out of 5 of us had open toed shoes. You need closed toed shoes to play so we just played other games. Overall it was fun. We will go again. We really wanted to try the donut sundae but we were too full so we will ge back.

About the restaurant
The Taphouse is a modern tavern. Our menu and craft beer selection make it the perfect place for lunch and a quick pint. Or settle in with some friends and watch the big game, then stick around for great live music and dancing.

Our experience is always good. Our server “Beauty” was excellent and always made sure we had drinks. Drinks are a bit over-priced. We go for the racing which we enjoy and the host/hostess are always great.
