Three Bears Brewery and Restaurant

You don’t want to miss trying one of their pizzas – the dough is made using a process known as “reverse ice water ferment” and takes 72 hours to make!

The Eddie Burger + Bar

If we had one word to describe The Eddie Burger + Bar it would be ‘steez’. It has an atmosphere of its own that everyone has to experience once in their lifetime. As the name suggests, they have a range of mouthwatering burgers, poutine, and wings to choose from. Bring the kids for a milkshake (like the ones you only see in the movies), enjoy good grub, watch the game, and have a great time!
