Up Close + Personal With Our Sky Yard Redesign

Posted by Drake, 9 months, 1 week ago

Sure, you've sipped your favourite cocktail and snacked on fried chicken under the stars on our Sky Yard patio, but have you looked closely? Like really closely? Our newly redesigned space is inspired by retro East Coast summers and contemporary geometric designs and we couldn't be happier to spend our summer on it! From the floor to ceiling, we snapped some photos of our new digs. Come get up close and personal with our Sky Yard.

Lobster Fest Returns to our Sky Yard

Posted by Drake, 9 months, 3 weeks ago

We're bringing East Coast charm to the exciting redesign of our Sky Yard every Sunday with Lobster Fest. Wear your elastic-waist pants and sit down to feast on a hearty one-pound lobster and all the fixings for just $34.95. Each lobster is paired with favourites from Chef Ted Corrado’s new critically-acclaimed dinner menu including Cuban corn, smoked potato salad, coleslaw, jalapeño cornbread, hot butter and an impossible-to-resist flourless chocolate cake trifle. Wet your whistle with a complimentary bottle of brew from the Halifax king of beer, Alexander Keith. Bibs and lobster crackers are included so you can dine with your friends al fresco on the Sky Yard without worrying about wearing crustacean on your shirt.

Book your spot by giving us a shout at 416. 531. 5042 ext. 1 or drop us a line
