Good food, good drinks. But so freaking expensive outside of happy hour and brunch hour.
I came back here to try the cheaper brunch specials. The food was good. However, we had to wait to be seated in an empty restaurant. The bar and several tables were empty and we were told there was a ten minute wait at opening. Tons of staff standing around, some eating and some drinking coffee...we were told that $5 dollar Caesars were on special and we ordered them and the server brought us doubles which cost more...and then my partner ordered a second Caesar around 1130 or so and when we got our bill at 12, he had charged full price for that second Caesar. (The cheap prices are from 11-12).
TL;DR - Poorly run. Make sure you read your bill.

Atmosphere check. Service check. Amazing beer selection check. Delicious food check. You're missing out if you don't go to this place. Definitely a second home when I'm in Vancouver

Beautiful patio, gets very busy on sunny, warm days. Went around 2pm on a Saturday and waited around 30 minutes for a table for 4. Delicious appies, love the peanut lime chicken and fried pickles.

Great place to grab a quick bite or have a romantic dinner. Staff is always great and forever smiling. Food is fresh and savoury, I’ve never had a bad experience and always have a good time coming here. Wide selection of beers craft and some international. Larger selection of wines

I highly recommend the tuna burger and their craft beer. So tasty!!! The staff are all wonderful as well. They make you feel really welcomed all the time! Just like Cheers - where everybody knows your name. I love this place!
