Trendy, but no real substance. Tap selection in BC craft, but the mainstays. Service was decent but food was on the chain side and expensive for what it was. I would give it a miss considering what is available close by.

They do have a decent selection of BC craft beers, but Iím personally not a fan of the big gulp (20 oz) approach to draft beer, and definitely not a fan of high prices. The server frowned when I asked for a smaller glass, but when I persisted, he allowed as how he could help me out with a 16 oz jar at a still high price.
Best approach and value here for those that like variety in their beer is the 3 beer paddle for 8 bucks. Itís not a paddle, actually. Itís 3 short 7 oz glasses on a sheet of paper listing the beers. Best deal in the house IMO.
Minus: The glassware in this joint is ridiculous. The 20 oz is a very tall slender glass stein. The 16 oz is one of those silly mugs that looks like a canning jar with a handle. Not sure who dreamt up that bit of nonsense.
Plus: The WiFi didnít work, but staff were willing and able to reboot it for me, after which it worked just fine. The floor manager was even kind enough to drop by and ask how it was working. Thumbs up to that!

Place was heaving with the after work crowd. Bar was full but managed to grab a seat to the side. Some good local BC options on tap but otherwise a lot of familiarity. Staff were running ragged. Nice views.

I have to partially agree with the previous review. Food is average and overpriced. Service is friendly (maybe not late night or weekends). Nice looking location. Seems that it could get pretty douchey at certain times. All the beers on tap are BC. It's no surprise when the staff are wearing shirts stating "BC on TAP". Fairly standard selection tho. Most everything scattered places serve, but this is where you'll get it in 1 spot. Only 1-2 lines are seasonal. Beer prices are okay, when accounting for the 20oz pints, and that most spots in the city are about $0.75 less for 16oz sleeves. All in, it's an ok place, with a sexy view. Not handy for public transit options tho.

Wasnít a fan of this place. Decent taplist, pretty much offering mostly BC locals. Prices are absurd, nearly totalling $10 per pint after taxes / tip. Service was decent. Food is average at best - the salad I had was insufficient, not varied and very overpriced. Wonít be coming back here anytime soon.
