Bad service, bad food. Got the beet salad- which had way too much dressing on it. My boyfriend got the skillet mac n cheese with eggs, and the eggs were dramatically under-cooked and the mac n cheese was soupy. The waitress forgot about bringing more water to our table; my friend got the unlimited mimosas and the waitress wasn't around to refill them at all.

Overall, really disappointing experience. Will not be going back. Upset that it was as expensive as it was for the service and food quality.

Went here for a birthday date with my boyfriend and I really enjoyed my time here. This was my first time here and the food was great, but the price for bottomless mimosas was even better! Next time I come I'll make sure to get the chicken and waffles. They also did a great job with making sure the note I left in the notes section was met

Beware of the seat below upstairs dining . Dust fell right into our first table and into my drink so we had to move. The waiter didn't quite explain the corn bread waffle accurately he said it was a waffle and the chicken was breaded in corn bread. Not my preference or the friend I was with. The chicken was huge but kind of dry. We had to send it back. It comes with bacon maple syrup and maple syrup. The 2nd order was decent. I ordered the biscuits and gravy and my friend had the 2 eggs breakfast with toast and pork sausages if I remember correctly. She liked it . Gravy from my meal was a little soupy but tasty like a broth with 2 eggs over easy and some spicy sausages that were yummy. The mimosas were a great value which kind of help me get over the chicken and waffles. The menu I feel should be revamped. The staff was very nice and service was great honestly. Just didn't care for the food.

Food was excellent, but one of the dishes was incorrect, and they forgot to bring my client their soda. They brought out the right dish quickly, but still forgot to take the incorrect one off the bill when it came. Tough to get the attention of the waiter to get the incorrect meal corrected. While the food was great, would not recommend it for a business lunch.

Good drink menu, I recommend the Shaw's Manhattan. Fish tacos are quite good. I miss the poutine.

Last time here my colleague got the Cobb salad with grilled chicken and it looked fantastic. My new colleague and I both ordered it and thoroughly enjoyed it. Would definitely order again for quick and tasty meal.
