Never Fail ribs as usual

As usual the ribs were fantastic. The side dishes are always yummy - I always have the beans and they never disappoint. Service was only OK on this trip - we went early and the dining room was not open until 5 so we got put into lower area (bar) which was very nice and cozy but busy and was... read more

Went in on a less busy day. Service was wonderful, hostess was very kind and recommended the Prime Rib. It was perfect. Hard to find good prime rib, this one is above and beyond!! Will be back on next visit.

I recently visited my sister and family in Moncton (I'm from Elliot Lake ON), and we took a little 'side trip' to Halifax where we met up with niece Donna and Nora at this fantastic eatery. I am drooling as I type up the review, and it has been a week since Baton Rouge. The friendly efficient servers, the meal... More

This restaurant is located right downtown Halifax in the heart of the business district. They have a great wine selection and the food has always been consistently great. Our group is a fan of the rib combo and we always ask for some of their tasty peppercorn sauce on the side. The atmosphere is great too. Exposed brick and timbers... More

Thank you so much for the review. I am extremely pleased that you enjoyed your visit. I have to agree, our ribs are delicious. Patio season is upon us and, during the evening, the traffic is not too bad beside the restaurant. You won't get the large transport trucks going through so it can be a very pleasant evening if...

I walked in on a weekday evening hoping to get a nice supper. I waited at the host station for 5-10 minutes while staff wandered past ignoring me. I poked around to the bar area and tried to get serving staff's attention, no dice. Still ignored. They literally walked past me without acknowledging me. Since I know I am not... More

Went with a group of friends to celebrate a birthday. Haven't been for years so hoped that things would be better than the last time I went which had been disappointing. I am sorry to say the food came lukewarm and the ribs were very uninteresting. The server was lethargic. Will not go back again.
