As the title says, this is a great place to watch the hockey game. There are tons of HD TVs all over the place and there is pretty much no bad place to site unless you are in the very back.
The food is mediocre however. I had some hot wings and unfortunately they were battered and not that great. They had some drink specials which made the booze reasonably priced. The game was brutal but luckily there were cheap shooters on a Canucks goal and they did manage to score once. I would return to watch the game.
I've been to G a few times, but never to eat. The first and last time I ate there was during a playoffs game (Blackhawks first round). My wife and I got there early and there were still a few seats left but the place filled up fast, so I figured they must be doing something right.
They recently upgraded their menu, but the food is still the same orangey-brown pub fare my buddies ventured to eat the few times I'd been there before. I had an extremely overcooked chicken burger and the number of yam fries it came with were barely in the double digits. Two weeks later and I still regret eating this meal. The food is ludicrously overpriced for both quantity and quality. Seriously, if you are stuck here watching a game at suppertime, leave between periods and grab a hotdog, donair or a slice of pizza.
The service is OK. If you know the waitress or bartender, it appears, the service is phenomenal, so much so that he or she will sit with your table for long stretches during the game while heads swivel at every other table with empty glasses everywhere. Not mine though. When I stopped the waitress - who was apparently going to walk past our table for the third time - she gave me a really dirty look, and our drinks took about ten minutes to arrive after that. Inexcusable.
And no one asked me how my food was. After dinner I ordered a caesar which was a good deal at 5.99 for a double, but it came with this squalid, limp, soggy, skeezy grean bean in it, as well as a dwarfish wedge of mummified lime that was almost comically devoid of any liquid whatsoever. I was promised "spicy" and I got something that tasted like cold tomato soup. You really, really really really really need to know how to make a proper caesar if you operate a drinking establishment. Again, inexcusable.
The only good thing about the place? The AV. There are tvs everywhere, and the sound is good. That said, my living room tv is also HD, also has superb sound, and I make a way, way, way better caesar.
Word to the wise: do not under any circumstances get sucked into buying tickets in their raffle draws. They oversell them like mad and they draw way less prizes than they promise. Also the prizes are mostly gift certificates to the over-priced restaurant next door. And I'm sure the money does not go to orphans or the food bank or anything like that.
If you're considering this bar for a big event such as UFC or a hockey game, I STRONGLY advise against it.
I went with a group of friends to watch a UFC event and we were sure to arrive early to secure a table. We were there hours before the event but we were forced to move from our table right when the event started because some other group made a reservation, they could have told us this sooner! Next we were asked to pay a cover of $10 by an elderly lady, who seemed to be the bar owner, halfway into the UFC event. We had been there all day buying food and drink and the owner was tacky enough to somehow track us down and demand cover. We refused to pay even after multiple demands by the owner... I will NEVER go to a sports event here again!
