Knotty Chopped Cheese Sandwich

Finally, a decent restaurant in PQ! And really way more than decent. Knotty Barrel has a comfortable ambience, great menu and a full bar. Staff is personable and service is good. The music is not so loud that you can't have a conversation. And the outside patio is clearly a hit.

Chicken Sarnie

This sandwich is the best chicken sandwich I have ever had! Hands down makes me want to have chicken over a burger any day. The crisp chicken, the crisp baked and avocado! Omg. Btw have this sandwich with a side of the Cajun fries and it will blow your mind.

Loco Moco

We started coming for breakfast on Saturday mornings about a month ago and have been nothing but impressed. Their brunch menu offers something for everyone. Our favorites are the meat lovers scramble and the loco moco. Its just a bonus that it's happy hour beer prices until 2pm. SCORE. We bring our puppy and make it a family affair and Saturday morning tradition. Alex is our favorite waitress and always suggests new menu items and beers.

Steak Frites

This is the best meal I have ever had, seriously ever! Steak is steak, of course it is magnificent. Now add the chimichurri with the bluberry puree and/or the horse radish aioli is different but they are a food lovers game changer. Now to the fries. I am not a big fry person and neither is my husband. These fries call to us when we are in the area, pleading to us to come and eat them. They are perfectly crispy every time and the parmasean truffle just adds to the deliciousness. We are also a huge fan of the Sweet Chili Califlower, even our kids love it and there is enough to share. All the items our kids ordered were devoured as well. We have been here often and have never been dissapointed. Good beer selection too (Sour Gummies is my favorite and my husband likes their Japaanese beer, especially when they are open early on Thursday's and we can have an early lunch date!)

Steak Sandwich

Every time I visit, I order the steak sandwhich with truffle fries. The steak with cheese and mushrooms is just so juicy and delicious, just mouth wateringly good.

Avocado Toast

This is Avocado Toast done RIGHT- the bread is perfectly toasted and the toppings are well balanced ! What really elevates the toast is the 'swoosh'' of Raspberry Puree - add an over easy fried egg and you are in brunch heaven !!
