Dinner is available Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with Happy Hour and nightly specials!


Serving Brunch 7 days a week starting at 10AM on Weekdays and 9AM on Weekends.


We offer a fresh perspective on the classic neighbourhood eatery, throwing back to a simpler, more wholesome time when eating out was fun, approachable and most importantly, accessible. It brings patrons back to the mid-twentieth century – an era defined by a feel-good, optimistic mentality that influenced popular culture and food. Think Leave it to Beaver, Superbad, and Saved By The Bell came together in the most epic way possible.

    Food was yummy although I found the Mac with fried chicken to be a salty combo. Presentation could be better. We were late for our reservation and there were very accommodating. We did not have to wait to be seated. Service was on point and drinks were delicious. Our server was very attentive and left us asking for nothing because she was so proactive.

    Great ambience on arrival..lots of different rooms and options for seating which is part of its charm. Greeting on arrival was prompt and very friendly. Once seated, service was mediocre at best. Friendly enough forgetful and slow service. 4 of 6 meals were very good but 2 were cold and service staff didn't return in time to send back to fix it. There is an automatic gratuity of 18% for parties of 6 or more ( I assume , as it was already on the bill) . Guaranteed gratuity often explains poor or indifferent service Noise level in the one room was really too loud ..5 or 6 speakers playing music too loud so everyone in restaurant section were yelling over it. We could not hear each other at the same table .... that is not what one would expect during brunch. Even the server was yelling and couldn't hear our food orders over the din. We asked if she could turn it down..she said she would try, but that it was not her decision and thst she might not be allowed to do so. Would reco if one is going for brunch and conversation, stick to the front room or a patio as those were much better noise levels for conversation (we noticed on our way out). Might try again for 2nd chance with smaller rez for 2 or 3 people as their food is very good and they take reservations, but definitely not for larger group and definitely not in that section if during the daytime.

    We arrived during a busy Sunday brunch time and John was absolutely wonderful to us. Attentive, funny and great service. Above and beyond. Those St Paddy Day margaritas were amazing!!! John you are stellar! Can't wait to go back for happy hour!
