Not a Good Dinner

I ordered the dry ribs which were advertised as the special of the house so I had big expectations. However, they were much worse that what I could have picked up at the Safeway Deli -- not just dry but dried out. So disappointing! The setting was kind of fun -- the old CPR train station and the... read more

We were there for breakfast and were so surprised to have such wonderful Mexican fare! We just didn't expect perfectly composed Mexican skillets there in Saskatoon, with just the right amount of tomatoes and beans and spices and the eggs done perfectly. Our waitress was very attentive, offering a variety of extra hot sauces and encouraging us to take the... More

Our favourite times to come to this restaurant are for Sunday brunch and for Wednesday 2 for 1 pizza, but any day is a good day! The staff are always friendly and efficient, and are especially welcoming with repeat guests. Jim takes the time to greet all guests and cares that people enjoy their meals away from home.

Had 2 meals here during my visit. One was for breakfast. The buffet was very good. Went another night for dinner with son and sister. The baked lasagna was excellent. The waiters come around while eating offering small shots of liqueurs. It was fantastic.

The staff are great. The owner walks around talking to everyone. They also bring around complimentary shooters, Pretty good hey. The portions are huge. It was good. Your general menu. I have heard there is a big difference from the other Tomas Cook downtown.

Where do I begin. I have been here multiple times and every time it has been awful service. The people who work here are just plain rude and act like its not their job to serve you. Then when you dont get your meal properly they get mad and storm off. Im not talking about one person, its every single... More

Lousy food, bad service. Pizza is ok tho. There are several locations in town and they all have a terrible reputation. Avoid at all cost.

And when brought to OWNERS attention all he said was "can I bring you another plate", I said "no, that's disgusting, I won't return" and got a "that's fine". Saskatoon has many more reputable places to eat. Don't waste your money here!

My mother and I stopped in for lunch and were very pleased. The menu had a very wide variety from which to choose. We had pizza and Greek salad. The pizza was served hot and fresh and was generously topped with meat and cheese. The Greek salad was aslo very fresh and the serving was a very large portion. We... More
