    The waitress was kindly asking for needs frequently then we realized too many people kept coming in so that they tried to “remind” the customers. I don’t blame her but still it made me feel uncomfortable to keep staying after finish the food.

    We love South Block for authentic, delicious BBQ with a great atmosphere. Most of the meats and all of the sauces are gluten free, and there are lots of options for sides. My husband loved the beer too. My 13 year old thinks this is the coolest place to go for dinner now, especially when we sit on the dog friendly patio. Highly recommend!

    Service was amazing and couldn’t say enough of the great job she did. Quick, attentive, friendly and overall very good at her job. The food was lack lustre and missing the quality that we have had at Hayden and Comery Block. Turkey was ultra dry, dirty chips were chewy and had a stale taste, the bacon on the corn on the cob was undercooked and when we requested an item be altered for our young child we were told the kitchen was not accepting changes due to how busy they were. I get not accepting off menu changes but the restaurant was only about a 1/3 full when we made this request. I’d hate to see the quality on a busy night. This was our first experience and most likely last unfortunately. We will continue to the other establishments but not this one.

    Amazing food, and great brews! Food could have been hotter when it came out, but it did come out very quickly. The craft beers were very good. Try the Pineapple Cranberry sour! I don't even like sour beers but ended up drinking it all night. Nice wood burning fireplace, garage doors that open to a beautiful patio area. Friendly staff. Will definitely come back again.

    The food was OK. Not stand out good but OK. Service was really good our server was fun. The taste on all the cocktails was good as expected for the price. But the whiskeys straight are over priced in my opinion. You can get a cocktail made with 2OZ of Michters Rye and other mixes for $15 but you buy that same Whiskey Neat you only get 1OZ for $14. Seems a little steep for entry level whiskeys that are easy to find. All in all we had a really good night out with our friends.

    Food was very good. The brisket and pork ribs were delicious, with a selection of excellent sauces. Really appreciated that the salads were tasty but not overdressed. The Smoked Old Fashioned cocktail is a hit. And, the live music was excellent!

    Everything was great. The only thing was my husband went on line for a high chair and when they went to bring it there was no room for it. So maybe having a booster seat just to sit on a bench would be good. The food and service was excellent and very quick. Thank you.

    Service was great! We were a table of 10 and everyone was very well taken care of. Food was good, had the mac and cheese and brisket slices. Everyone that tried the brisket was very impressed with it. Would return for this type of event. It was a bit chilly in the bar though, may need to turn up the heat a smidge!

    Ribs were on special so we ordered them. The meat was stringy and lacked flavour. My husband had them dry. I ordered wet but that just meant a cold brush of bbq sauce on dry ribs. We shared the beet salad. It was dry and lacked flavour. Our waitress was nice, but didn’t know the menu, and the service was prompt. Overall very disappointing. We will not be going back. Not nearly as good as sister restaurant Hayden Block.

    First time visitor but had read other reviews of food so chose meats and sides that came highly recommended and did not disappoint. Burnt ends and apricot pork belly were very tender and tasty. Potato salad and bacon wrapped corn also excellent. Service was tremendous and cocktail suggestions were bang on from server. Will go back for sure. Cool closed in patio with lots of light

    The ribs were good, but were not hot when served and could be more juicy. Same with the pulled pork, could also use more flavor. Pork belly was very good. Portions are small for the price. Happy hour for the draft was good. Service and ambience was great.
