Ye Olde Orchard Pub and Grill Restaurant Review


Ye Olde Orchard Pub & Grill, Saint-Sauveur

Ye Olde Orchard Pub & Grill, Saint-Sauveur

Yesterday, to celebrate father’s day with the Producer, we drove up North to charming Saint-Sauveur. This quaint little village is the locale of our very first date that September so long ago. We routinely do pilgrimages as a way of reminiscing. It’s become a family tradition. We do the same with Gananoque, locale of our honeymoon.

This time, we asked the iPhone to recommend an Irish pub in the Saint-Sauveur area. Iris informed us that the best one was Ye Olde Orchard Pub & Grill on Rue Principale (Main Street.)

The producer ordered fish and chips with a McAuslan Cream Ale.

I ordered thew grilled vegetable salad with McAuslan Abricot Wheat Ale.

McAuslan and St-Ambroise are the same company. So both beers are actually St-Ambroise and not McAuslan.

We started off with nachos served with homemade salsa. It was delicious.

As to the main courses, the portions were ginormous. I grazed so much that I’m surprised I did not yell “moo” all afternoon.

As to the fish and ships, there was more batter than fish on the fish. The Producer prefers two nice fillets to four. Typically, when they serve four, they add more grease and less fish.

Fish and Chips, batter much?

Now, the beers were perfect. They were nice and refreshing after our trek on the Petit Train du Nord. The terrace was lovely (if you visit in the winter, the inside is very stale looking, it needs a complete re-haul).

It’s a great place to soak in the sun (I was in the shade while the Producer burnt to a crisp on the opposite side of the table), have a few beers with some nachos and snacks. The food was good but it’s more of a place to spend an afternoon drinking getting your buzz on. The service was very friendly.  Cheers!
