PUB REVIEW: Euclid Hall

We came here after hearing nothing but great things about the food and pickles at Euclid Hall.  We walked in and had a short wait.  We were sat in a table that quickly was miserable due to the sun coming through the window and were moved to another table once we asked.  

We placed a beer order and food order with our server.  And then we waited.  And waited.  And eventually we were brought beers.  And then we waited more.  

The first item we ordered - the pickle sampler - arrived after a bit.  The pickles were pretty good.  The hop infused, the main reason we made this pickle journey, was ok.  Overall, the pickle platter was definitely worth the $5 and if I were more hungry, I probably could have eaten one myself.  Then again, I do love me some pickles.

Next up was the Duck Confit Poutine.  It was amazing.  And delicious.  And possibly one of the best poutines I've ever had.  I'd definitely suggest trying a poutine while you're here.

However, the big problem I had here was with the service.  I understand they were busy, but we had to get up, walk to the bar, flag someone down, and then wait a few minutes before someone would bring us our check.  Thank goodness we had cash or else I'm certain we would have been sitting there another 10-15 minutes just waiting for change.  I think our two beers (we would have ordered more but nobody ever came back to ask us if we wanted anything else) and our 2 little plates took us nearly 1.5 hours.  In that time we maybe saw a serve 2-3 times (once to take the orders, to drop off the beers, and then again to drop off food).  Their food is delicious, but the service we had was atrocious.
