It's a very nice place. Kinda odd location - lots of homeless people around, but building is nice, both outside and inside and it was really busy on tuesday night. Service was really good, our server was very promt and helpfull. We just had an appetizer there - calamary, it was different, but pretty good. The pub fare on menu looked regular.
Beer was good too, hefeweisen was outstanding. Brown ale was pretty good, but I found it beeing more stout than ale.
Overall - really nice place, we'll be back for more beer

Bottom line: come for the atmosphere, not the beer.

Huge sunny deck to enjoy sunny days, fun post/beam rooms inside if it's not so sunny. It's a cool place to hang out that's for sure. And the service is friendly and attentive. If only the beers were good it would be so much better. I tried the 6 beer taster and didn't like any. Especially disappointing was the Saison which was didn't resemble any Saison I've tried: it was like a sour pilsner. Too bad. As a matter of fact, all the beers tasted "green" and disjointed.

Second time here and I felt the same way both times.

An interesting place. Atmosphere was really nice, I would describe it as an upscale pub environment. The food was quite good as well. But the beer was fairly bland, which is even more disappionting when compared to the quality of other Victoria locals. Only 4 regulars plus one sesonal were pouring.

Service was quick and friendly. Prices were good as well.

Overall, I would say that if not for the good atmosphere and the food, this is not worth even visiting as the beer doesn't hold up to the local competition.

Nice spot on the harbor. Big wide open space, bistro/gastopub feel. Exposed beams, wide open serving room, stools and high tables. Was there for lunch during the week so it was comfortably quiet and laid back just as I like it. Just their 4 regular offerings on tap with their one seasonal, $6.30 for a pint which is within the range of reasonable in Canada. Beers range from so-so to really good (get their seasonal offering!). Food was a step above good, has one of their pizzas which was quite nice. I'm sure in the evening it caters to more of an upscale clientele but a nice spot for lunch. Nice place but not a must stop.
