For more than 17 years, The Last Straw Brew Pub has served up classic pub fare and craft beers with efficient, customer-focused service. The ever-changing menu is a stomach-filling smorgasbord with dishes ranging from soups and sandwiches to pizza and engaging entrées. The taste buds' culinary journey begins with appetizers such as the cheddar tempura broccoli ($9.95) or the house specialty lager basket ($6.95), thin sliced potato Frisbees of flavour soaked in wheat lager beer and escorted by a delectable dill dip. An entourage of entrées saunter to your table with posse members including the tear-jerker burger ($11.50), which, like a Celine Dion ballad, unleashes rivers of eye perspiration with Cajun seasoning and fresh jalapeños. Diners can also dig incisors into meaty meals such as the tomahawk chop ($13.95), a 10 oz. center-cut pork chop catching some z's atop a bed of rice pilaf. Diners can sip a pre-dinner libation at the horseshoe bar while catching all the televised athletic endeavours and soaking in the homey pub vibe. Former professional gnome throwers can get their competition fix at the numerous pool tables or grab a breath of fresh air on the outdoor patio. Daily specials spice up the week, including Monday pizza night ($3.50) and Friday fish-and-chip night ($8.95), frequented by smooth-talking trout with penchants for poker. The Last Straw shares parents with other established eateries such as Bronzinnis, The Barley Mill, and Creekside Pub.
