Stopped in for dinner and requested a table outside so that we could enjoy the perfect weather. The food and service were top notch but the atmosphere was marred by two situations completely beyond the control of the restaurant. One, Halifax has its fair share simple minded young male drivers that like to display their juvenile arrested development by driving... More

The meal was fantastic, best ribs in the city, but the coleslaw was disappointing. The waiter was very friendly an funny( like the sense of humor) it puts you at ease. Parking is available close by at night.

Thank you for the great review. I am sorry you didn't like the coleslaw. Maybe next time you might like to try our delicious fries seasoned with our in store prepared spice. You won't be able to stop eating them. I hope you can dine with us again soon. Donna Orr Manager More
