Against the Grain Urban Tavern

Just wanted to do a quick post of Against the Grain Urban Tavern, quick and short post since I only went there after a girls night dinner for drinks. I have been wanting to go for their patio since it first open since they have a great view by the lake (^_^), but haven't found time to go yet but this night time visit will have to do for now. It was still a great vibe with gas fireplace and comfy sofas for smaller group.

 I had a Mojito, love how much mint there was and not too sweet.

Baja Roasted Chicken Nachos
~ Cheddar and Jack Cheese, bell peppers and red onions nachos w/ tomato salsa,avocado relish and chili scented sour cream.
The avocado relish was king of tasteless with the cheesy nachos and didn't even taste the chili from the sour cream (>_<). But love the toasted cheese on top.

Flying Monkeys - one of my fave local brewery
A friend order poutine but I haven't had it so not sure if it was good but according to him it was delish

Dockside Pizza
~ arugula, prosciutto, roasted garlic cloves, caramelized onions, Gargonzola & Parmesan cheese 
The toppings was ok, nothing special but the crust was rather dry and bland.
Not my kind of pizza

Verdict :
Won't go back for the pizza but definetly for the location and ambiance
 and drinks (^v^)

  1. I want to try this place out too. Heard from a friend that the food is just average (and hes not even a foodie lol) but yeah, he says the vibe and patio is really nice :)

  2. Just go for drink on the patio before the temperature drop further =D
