Went by on a Friday evening for some drinks and found out that it was more than a beer/drink place as it seems to be from the outside. Tried the shoe string fries-nice a crips with bits of bacon, wings - nice glaze over crispy wings, sliders - average, mussels - nice with a great sauce. Overall the place is a great for hanging out and sharing a few appies. No real mains but food for sharing. Service was good and fast. Ambiance is great as big sliding windows open up. Would return.
One of Gastowns best gems. Has an amazing beer list, as well as great tapa-ish menu. Really chillaxed atmosphere with lot's of character. Better than any run of the mill chain restaurant when you want to catch up over a drink with a small group of friends. Only downside on the weekends is that it always busy!! I don't eat beef so I love it hear because they are the only place that I have seen to have veggie sliders. The fries and home-made ketchup are also yummy!
Always satisfied by the service. The owners are the nicest people ever. Good food too; try the spiced pecans, The gondola, and the longbread. The beer selection is the best in Vancouver. The patio is an oasis in a sea of tourists and suburban jocks at the Blarney Stone.
Six Acres has a really cool atmosphere, befitting Gastown, with big windows overlooking the Gassy Jack statue. Inside, lots of wood, brick and good ambiance.
They have an awesome selection of beers from around the world, which is what really excited me about the place. The food was not as exciting as the beer list, however. We tried their "wax off," which was pieces of nori topped with a ball of rice and smoked salmon. It was an intriguing concept, but we found it quite dry and bland. I imagine the "wax on" with tuna would be better, as it had wasabi mayo. We also had the Don Corleone share platter, which had some meats and condiments with fresh bread. The bread was exceptional!
I wouldn't come back for dinner, but definitely will frequent this place for drinks and snacks before/after a meal. The atmosphere, location, and beer selection are too much to pass up!
I have really liked going to Six Acres in the past, but last night we had the WORST service. Check this out: We order a bottle of wine from the female server and requested that it come without a wine bucket. Well, it arrived with a wine bucket and we requested that she take the bucket back to the kitchen and that we were fine with the bottle solo on the table. Well...... she left with the wine bucket (obviously offended or something thin-skinned ???), & she didn't even open the bottle of wine !!! The bottle sat on our table for a few minutes, so we took the liberty of opening the bottle and pouring each of our glasses - I couldn't believe it. The server came back only once all evening to ask how we were doing. It is service like this which would make me refuse to patronize a restaurant again.
