I went with a friend to the Library Square Public House before a BC Lions game. We arrived at 6:20 for a 7:30 game, assuming we'd have enough time to hang out and enjoy the meal. We were wrong.
They weren't full so we seated ourselves pretty much right away, no problem. We got menus, and my friend ordered a beer pretty much right away so that was no problem. The beer arrived, we ordered burgers and I ordered a beer. No problems at all.
After about 20 minutes since ordering, they brought my beer and the server appologised saying the beer taking so long was her fault, but the food taking so long was the kitchen's fault.
Then nothing. Nothing at all. The food was completely absent along with any kind of service.
About 40 minutes after ordering, the guys beside us got their food. They ordered a minute or so before us so my stomach was excited.
Nothing. No explanation, no offer of appetizers to keep us fed, no offer to refill beers, not even water. Let me remind you, the place was not full, it wasn't even busy at this point, most of the people must have left for the game. And we didn't order anything special. Burgers do not take this long. There was some comfort in the fact we weren't the only ones getting this service, but that's also a bad sign for the restaurant.
At around 7:20 we considered paying for the beer and leaving, but then the food arrived! 50 minutes for burgers! No comments from the servers. We had to wolf down our food to run off to the game.
The food seemed ok. The burger was good, the fries were like frozen McKain's (not great). My friend complained his burger was not very hot, mine was fine though.
The place looked nice, lots of TVs, foosball, etc. If you're going to stay a while and don't need food quickly or any real service, I suppose these things can come in handy.
