Stopped in here Saturday night at about 6:30 with no reservation and got a table (for 6) right away. About 30 minutes later the place was packed.
Atmosphere: It was pretty loud in there, which was easy because everyone was packed in pretty close. There was a bar with a NASCAR game on, and we sat at a table in the back. Lighting was very dark, just a couple candles on the tables, along with some dim hanging lights.
Drinks: There were maybe 15 beers on tap and just a couple bottles. I ordered Jack's Abby Hoponius Union which is a staple beer of mine. Aside from that, there wasn't a whole lot special.
Food: The poutine was fantastic, the scotch egg was decent, and I got the BLT burger which was excellent, although they don't let you choose how you want the burger cooked which I thought was very odd. Mine was cooked well though, and was fall-apart which was great. Ask for a side of mustard, it was really tasty.
The service was just ok. The waiter seemed a bit preoccupied (could've been friendlier), but he got the job done, and our food and drinks came out relatively quickly.
Interesting place, I'd probably stop by again. Not cheap, the burger was $18 and the entrees were all $20-$30, but the food was good.

My wife and I stopped in here for some drinks before dinner on Friday night. Not too busy at first, but the crowd rolled in closer to 6:30-7:00PM. Very cool looking place when you walk in. There is a bust of a Tyrannosaurus Rex above the door; better than a deer. The inside has a very comfortable atmosphere. Lots of wood, and very smooth lighting. Sitting at the bar, you also have a wonderful view of the Cathedral, which is interesting considering you are sitting in a bar named after where people where hung. Service was great at the bar. Both bartenders were friendly and chatty and informed. Beer selection was above average but not immense. Their menu was split into draft, bottles, and cans. On tap they had: DFH 60, Delirium, Rapscallion, Pabst, Paulaner, Guinness, Dale's Pale, and Sam Summer. Prices were $6-9. For bottles, they had: Weihenstephaner, Stone, and Pretty Things. We had an appetizer at the bar, which was bourbon soaked peaches, and they were tasty and cheap at $3. Based on the great atmosphere and service, we both decided that we'll be coming back here soon for dinner, which has also received excellent reviews in the local press.
