The service was okay, the server wasn’t overly friendly. The food was okay. Appies were great, our main meals were super under par. I had the burrito bowl, I found it to be quite bland, two had chicken burgers that were really chewy, another had the sirloin and it was grizzly. We’ve all been here before and it just wasn’t as good as times before. If you do get the chance they do have a beautiful charcuterie board.

Because we had a large group (10), it was 18% automatic billed tip. The waitress then was lazy and didn’t put effort in and messed up two meals with not even an acknowledgement or apology. We won’t be back here.

Our server ignored the first guests to arrive and only served 1 half of the second group. 10 minutes elapsed before she took the those orders.
The cocktails arrived not as pictured with out explanation As for the wings, we ordered 2 different varieties, we received 2 orders but they were the same. We were then advised they were out of the 1 variety but we weren’t notified.
Then the bill process started, there were 8 of us so the gratuity was included. Or was it? Some were, some weren’t, our server didn’t advise us at all. One of our guests double tipped because of it, made for an awkward moment.

Very quiet, not surprised for a Tuesday evening. We did make a reservation but there was no hostess present. Finally a friendly bartender did come and show us to a table. Great beer selection, that’s my biggest take away from our evening. The food is alright. Not amazing, just ok overall. Two appetizers, one was a standout which was the buffalo Brussel sprouts. The other appie was honestly nothing special. Somewhat bland. MKT Burger with fries was a hit. I’d avoid the fish tacos. Flavourless, the cod looked like it had seen better days. Lacked seasoning. The tortillas tasted either old or a touch freezer burnt. The ambience is decent, TVs for sports, lots of wood and pub like feel. Overall I’d come for the beer, but I don’t think I’d bother with the food. On a side note our waitress was attentive, knowledgeable and very friendly.

When we arrived they did not have a table for us. Then brought us upstairs. The waitress even tho not busy yet was constantly rushing away from our table after talking to one person and not check with the whole group. (Later it got busy, so then she was hiding) Our food was cold.. one persons meal didn’t show up until 15 minutes after everyone else’s. The bar was constantly “out” of every drink we tried to order. We never got water refills and silverware didn’t show up until after our meals. I literally had to chase the waitress down (multiple attempts) getting up and walking towards her to get our bill. She had absolutely no idea who ordered what and the drinks that were “out” she was trying to still charge us for that we never received. When standing with her and she printed out my bill she then ran away and said she’d bring my bill by later... why? Who knows. The machine was beside her and so was i with my card. On top of that they turned off the hockey game... and there was a blown speaker. Yet she had the nerve to put auto gratuity of 18%. Gave up on having that taken off because good luck getting a manager and we were already late for our event. I honestly will never return and neither will my friends.

The food and patio were very good! Our server had forgotten a couple things, but the patio was quite busy so we didn't think much of it. When we were paying for the bill we had given her a lower tip than she was probably expecting but still a decent tip. She looked at the receipt and threw it on the table and walked away. No thank you or goodbye. It was quite rude and something I had never experienced before. We were really disappointed because overall the experience at MKT was quite good but that left a sour taste in our mouths.

Overall food was okay but the service was terrible. We had been seated on the patio and intitally the first two dishes we wanted to order they ran out of.

After ordering food it took a long time to get the food and the second drink I ordered was never given. Pretty disappointing for a bar to not give a table their drinks.

I would recommend going to Hudsons over MKT at least they don't ignore you and give you drinks in a proper time frame.

We had the worst service ever. We waited 10+ min for each drink we ordered. They didn’t tell me till 30 min after I ordered my meal that what I ordered was not available. Service was just horrible, waitress asked us to repeat our entire order and drinks 3 times because she couldn’t figure out bills

Food was food, drinks were good. Service wasn’t the best and food and drink prices seemed high compared to other restaurants with similar meal options. I would probably go elsewhere if I had the option but would still recommend if in the area.

My Favourite place in town to go. I have regularly gone almost every Thursday for almost 4 years. Service is always really great. large wonderful space, huge selection or beer and nice environment. Recently the tap menu was heavily changed, there seems to be far less local Ab brands and a lot of the variety was thinned a lot of IPAs were added to the selection. Not a terrible thing just really enjoyed trying a wide variety of things on Thursday nights and trying other brands and styles outside of my regular comfort list. The Nachos are my favourite in town and it is an awesome location.

I hear from my dinner companions how good the food is. I have celiac disease so I can't eat the entres that my companions rave about. I get tired of salads but I really really appreciate that you have a dedicated fryer so I can have fries!

The service was painfully slow, even though they had almost one waitress per table. The Patio is way too noisy most because of the imbeciles with loud motorcycles drive by. The restaurant should be getting gate city to enforce the Noice Bylaws.

Noise level was to high for the dinner hr. People generally like to go and get a drink and chat with who they are with to wind down from the day. The music level could go higher later in the evening maybe after the dinner rush??

The dry ribs were AMAZING!! Highly recommended. The service was ok. Took a really long time for food to get out. The poutine was just ok. The gravy is more like a chicken gravy. The lettuce wraps were just okay as well. Love the atmosphere and the drinks were tasty and refreshing as well.

Canned slimy mushroooms on a dry subpar steak sandwich, fake wet butter, seemed similar to the butter at the movie theatre in those pump machines on a piece of bread for the steak sandwich. Fries were below average. Gravy was cold whitish gray thick and unappealing, was given “new” gravy and it was scolding hot from the microwave, it’s ok I didn’t want to consume anyway.
Asked for lettuce wrapped chicken with cheddar cheese, was given pulled cold chicken and a slice of cold hard cheddar between to flimsy lettuce leaves, made no sense, they took it back and was given a chicken breast, temp was super hot in one spot and barely warm in another, as if microwaved, super dry.

Had an event, had no time to find another place to eat, was so looking forward to a good meal. Super disappointed.

Would never go again to eat, will be sure to tell friends about eating fast food for a 1/4 of the price, same quality, before going here to eat. Comfy seating, loud music, seems like a fun place to not eat at.

Reservations made on line, requested private room & asked for reply. Got my confirmation but did not get a reply about the room request, called 5 times before someone finally answered the phone so i could confirm the room. The group said if they would not have had the room it would have been extremely loud for the business supper they were having.
We have booked there on a few different occasions & have enjoyed it in the private room

This was a good atmosphere for a group booking. The bench seating fit all 13 of us and there was lots of room between the other tables upstairs. I liked the Korean BBQ wings and fries. I wasn't expecting hummus on the Nacho Fries but it was not bad. The only issue I could think of was towards the end of the night one of our drinks was missed so we had it removed from the bill.
