We come here sometimes after work. Most places have good happy hour specials. They have no drink specials and only a few menu items are 1/2 price. Fish tacos are ok for 1/2 price with high liner fish in it. Artichoke dip was bland and unappetizing. Wings are really good when they are "on" and ok when not.
Waitresses are ok but a bit pushy. The blond one looks like a " dirty librarian".
The place is rarely busy. We walked in one sunny day after work at like 4:30 and you would expect the place full of the after work crowd. Nope. One couple in their 40s and that's it. There was more staff than customers. The had a sign up that said children were welcome until 9 pm but that came down after a couple of weeks. One waitress said the regulars didn't like kids in there. We'll I still don't see kids or regulars in there. Not a super vibe.
My wife and I went here the first time on a Saturday night, also Canucks hockey game night. I called the pub up about an hour before and I was told reservations were made a week ahead in light of the last regular Canucks game night.
Several tables were still empty when we arrived at 6.45pm though all reserved. We found space at one of the bar sections and were warmly greeted. Right next to us was a bunch of drunk teens playing pool rather recklessly. The ball flew off the table a few times as they were smashing the pool balls so hard. No one did anything about this.
Our appies and main course came all at once as the quality of the food was not too bad at all. Regular pub fair for sure. I liked how our server was watching our drinks and would have them refilled near our last glasses being empty.
We certainly felt a little older in this pub as the crowd was mostly in the late teens/early twenties. Overall my wife and I would prefer sticking with Samz down the road. Worthwhile trying this place if you have not been here though.
