They offered gluten free and the waitress really was helpful and could tell us what was in the dishes we were interested in. They had a separate gluten free menu which helped. No guess work involved in the what we could or could not eat. The food was excellent and the service could have been better. There was a lot... More

Went here tonight with our fam of 4. Excellent service, super good food. Best stuffed Portobello mushrooms I have ever had - a must try for an appetizer. Kids gave their meals two thumbs up.

Good food with good portions. Also good service ...We arrived 1/2 hour before closing but they were still happy to serve us and not try to rush us out the door. Thanks!

Great log-cabin ambiance and friendly, attentive service makes one feel immediately welcome. We stopped for breakfast and enjoyed the Breaky Burrito and Pulled Pork Benny. Both were served with outstanding home-made hash browns. The Burrito was... More

I really like the idea of this place as well as the decorating. It was very busy! We waited for a long time to be seated and we were lucky enough to be seated on the second floor loft kind of thing. We got to look down on the restaurant which was a very neat experience; the downfall though was... More

A restaurant who discriminates by not accepting reservations for small groups has come off my list of favorite places to eat. This is such a poor attitude. Glenna Strang

This restaurant has been serving great food at great prices & with friendly service for many years. Consistently good breakfasts - my favourites are the eggs benedicts, good coffee, enormous pie desserts & fresh & delicious cinnamon buns the size of dinner plates for sharing. The best food between Victoria & Nanaimo. Very busy on weekends in summer but worth... More

The food was great, the service was slow. THere was no quality check done, and I had to get up and ask for my dessert to go as the server took far to long!

We have frequented this Restaurant over the years and found the Staff to be very friendly and the food amazing. My favorite Roast beef & Yorkshire Pudding. Their pies are so yummy and filling so if you want to have a piece, make your main meal light because you get plenty of food and fun here! Thank you.
