Ah, the summer. The warmth seems so long ago, so I thought of putting up this review to bring back the nostalgia. Inside the decor is like Andy Warhol meet’s London metro: industrial open ceilings reveal large metal piping, colourful pop art adorns the walls along with subway markers.
The menu is typical pub fair meaning normal greasy English food. On weekends they stupidly only serve a brunch menu on Saturday and Sunday until 3 pm which is totally ridiculous!
On the bright side the patio is unbelievable, largely because it runs horizontally along marine parade. It’s one of the best people watching places in the city. Why do you ask? Because of a skyline view of the downtown core and “Miami” Humber Bay atmosphere.
Many satisfying imported and domestic on tap to satisfy any beer drinker. My mom’s new favorite is the Belgian Moon: a very light full bodied light summer beer starting out citrus, finishing light and creamy.
Caesars are nothing special, served with that annoying way-to-hot pickle-onion-pepper combo. Gross. So, I decide on a bubbly glass of Mas Fi Cava Brut instead 🙂 A 6oz glass is a refreshing $9.50.
I must applaud Moosehead’s cunning campaign to deceive customers into believing Moosehead Patio is a new type of beer. Too bad, So sad. The beer is actually the same, and my mom was tricked. Well we tried the flight anyway for $7.60; House Brew exclusive to Firkin, Granville Island Seasonal, Brickworks Ciderhouse 1904, and REGULAR Moosehead.
Food is kinda ordinary. A pound of wings ordered sauce on the side (honey garlic & medium) appear darker coloured than normal but super crisp and incredibly moist inside. I ordered extra celery and carrots . Ask for the garlicky dill dip instead of blue cheese – much fresher.
Nachos corn chips are a must! Tomatoes, olives and jalapeños smothered with melted cheese topped with salsa green onions, sour cream and guacamole. Wonderful. Don’t you just love when the kitchen layers the corn chips? Me too!
