I see what ya mean, but I'm a fan on good honest food. I have tried many different things here over the years with food. I have been at Garrick's Head since 1999. And in the end it all comes back to simple and good food. Almost all of our food is made in house and people keep coming back for it.
Really, a cool room, great staff, great simple food, and good tunes and you can't go wrong.

I hope everybody comes by for food and drinks once we're open, it really will be a cool spot for downtown.

On a second note, i had the 1st live music in the pub on Friday and last night and it was a great turnout.

had my draft system all finished up the other night by our great friends from DraughtWISE. There are some pics on our FB. Electricians have been going the last two days finishing up, and my tables are being built right now. We are ripping the extra old growth fir i had and building the tables out of it in a butcher block way.
I will keep you updated as things happen. Open the first week of Dec i hope.

Ever wonder how hard it is to find 45 bar stools and have them here in a short period of time? LOL
i managed to find some out of Toronto, $25 a stool shipping.

^^^^ I like the way you are using high bar stools and tables to take advantage of the view out of the window. That will be a great spot to sip on a pint and do a little bird watching.

OSJ generously gave me a quick tour again today, of the new space. It's so, so very close to being operational. :cheers:
