Suprised to see this one go. It was always busy whenever we were there and seemed to be a popular spot with the locals. No details on the closure, other than we were driving out that way a few weeks ago and noticed the signs were down and the windows were all boarded up. Bummer.

Meh...nothing exciting to report this time. The wings were REALLY small and slopped with an inconsistent application of sauce. Nice and spicy though and good flavour. We also tried out some local microbrewery cream ale which was alright.
Why the slide in score? Maybe we’ve been spoiled with a run of above average wings lately. These were average in just about every way.
Overall - Feb 2002:
Despite the lower scoring from the French judge (wink wink) and incredibly bad calls from the American referee, Mystic Jack’s snuck in and stole the Gold Medal, as did the Canadian Women’s hockey team!
WOO HOO! GO CANADA!
Still, no Rickards Red, and we drank them out of Upper Canada Dark, but the wings were excellent, big meaty and saucy. And speaking of saucy, lets give a big shout out to our waitress Amy for putting up with us. Though only her second night on the job, she never dropped the ball and kept our pitchers full and our ashtrays empty! We love you Amy! - And screw those Russian judges anyways! ;)
Overall - Dec 2001:
The wings were quite acceptable, toasty and large. There was an abundance of beer and wings, though no Rickards on tap. The staff was also toasty and abundant (wink wink nudge nudge), launching the TAVAR upwards, and increasing the score by a significant 5%. The only downfall to be found was that the space is somewhat limited, so rearranging might be necessary in order to fulfill a large BHON group. Otherwise, a group of 8 can sit comfortably at the largest round table. Mystically Delicious.
