  • I've always enjoyed the drink specials they offer, and the food is quite tasty
  • When I finally managed to get their attention, I learned that they hadn't even keyed in my order to the kitchen

      I have been to the Canoe Club several times with groups of friends, as it’s a good place for casual drinks. After my experiences there, however, I am unsure of whether or not I will return.

      I really like that the Canoe Club has such a wide terrace area, as it’s a great place to sit out on during summer evenings. I’ve always enjoyed the drink specials they offer, and the food is quite tasty. I’ve enjoyed their specials, and the food - when it arrives -
