    Great "snack-kitchen". Everything is home made (just as it should be). Fantastic fried chicken and freshly made fries (from REAL potatoes). Huge selections of craft beers. 👍

    Great patio and upper floor that inspires a hint of class. Huge selection of craft beer as well. One of the best bars on Queen St. W.

    Best onion rings I have had in a long time: nicely crispy, onion was easy to bite through and stayed in the batter. Delicious!

    Solid service, stellar craft beer selection. A QueenW destination for me, esp with the BikeShare Station across the street.

    Get George as your server. He knows the craft beer and cider list like the back of his hand.

    Awesome music, and the nicest bartenders! They have books lining the walls, but bring your own :)

    Lots of cider options, where most bars will only have one or two, and all local to Ontario!

    Simply an awesome place to get work done. Sometimes wifi goes down, but not often. And yeah, you never feel rushed. Not sure why people have beefs with staff... they're a-ok by me!

    The food here is surprisingly phenomenal. I got the spicy chicken sandwich and it was amazing, lots of cheese though! Try to rosti, it's like a latke.

    - Waupoos is the best Canadian cider bar none. Try it. You can thank me later - an Englishman who knows his booze.
