Tap and Barrell sucks. Ate there twice. Never again.

Craft is only good for beer.

Fast food sushi is worth a try at Craft. Burger and fries wrapped in bacon though so bring a defibrillator

I normally try to eat a little more on the healthy side but had to try it!

Don't eat at Craft, the burger bun was cardboard.

It's a novelty more than anything, but worth a try. When you're downing pints, may as well throw health out the window sometimes! (picture compliments of google)

A dozen or so people PM'd me about the McDonald's Create Your Taste menu.

I've amended my original post on the previous page. Hopefully I've answered your questions!

IMO, Tap and Craft are popular as their mode of business is catered towards those looking for either a patio/people watching or hall/large venue vibe respectively. There tons of places to grab a brew just south of Tap and Craft (Olympic Village) e.g. 33 Acres, Brassneck, Red Truck, Main St. Brewing, Big Rock, Steel Toad. I typically grab only drinks at Tap and Craft and venture to somewhere along Main/Gastown/Chinatown before or after for a bite

I found Steel Toad's beers severely lacking. Food was better than Craft and Tap though, plus the live music is good too.

33 acres is the best in that area for beer hands down. Get a Bestie Board and a flight and you are good to go.

You guys are crazy. Try Ocean, Sunshine, and Dusk and then tell me that they all taste the same.

And I've never had to wait more than 5-10 min max to get a table at 33 acres.

Crossroads Restaurant in Abbotsford

It's an old diner that serves breakfast all day. The breakfast is delicious. In particular, the bacon is thick, smokey, and crispy, and the cubed hashbrowns are golden potato chunks of goodness.

Their burger and fries are also really good. The burger is a good balance of meat and bun. I like it with extra pickles and onions. The ingredients were fresh, and it was really tasty. Almost Shake Shack tasty . The fries are super crispy, like the fries at Costco.

It's a restaurant where 80% of the patrons are seniors. Service is good. My wife wanted wanted to sub out an egg for more hashbrowns, but the waitress said she'd get the cook to add extra for her.

8.5/10
