Great place to eat in Swift Current! I've only had breakfast here but can imagine that all meals are awesome. Small diner, spotlessly clean with great atmosphere & service. My poached eggs were cooked to perfection. I had the most delicious pumpernickel bread toast, thick sliced off the bone ham, plus the O'brien hash browns were fantastic. Don't drive through... More

I spend 4 out of 5 days of the work week on the road for work. So most of my meals are in restaurants. This is one of the best I have been in, you will never leave hungry. The plate is always over full. The bacon in the breakfasts is almost 1/4" thick, cooked, that alone gets them 4... More

Quick and friendly service during peak lunch hour. Some food is a mystery to the non-Mennonite population but other than that had a decent lunch driving through town. Clubhouses are HUGE best not to order the triple or larger if you have a small mouth! The fries are bottomless but not the best I've ever had. All in all, a... More

Extremely big, extremely good and gave us an extremely large stomach ache. Not the fault of the restaurant, we simply ate too much of this massive meal haha! Great hidden secret of Swift Current, best Mom and Pop shop in the city by far!!!! For average eaters, one meal can easily be shared-especially since they offer bottomless fries. We want... More

We ate here based on the reviews it got. Went here with two small children (3 and 10 months). The kids menu was for ten and under unless you wanted a baby plate consisting of mashed potato and vegetables for three and under? Ok my three year old can eat a regular meal just in smaller portions so that wasn't... More

We were here for supper. Large tasty portions freshly made. The decor is simple and is an ole fashioned diner. Service is very good. Food took a bit but nothing too unbearable. It is worth the wait. Try the Paul Bunyon and the Mennonite Alfredo. Awesome!!!

Love this place! The portions are huge, and everything is home made. The Saskatoon jack salad is to die for! Service can be a bit iffy sometimes, but the food makes up for it.

One word to described this place...DELICIOUS! I know breakfast is one of the easier meals to make...but this place did it right! Portion sizes were huge and not overly priced. I like the option of having pierogies instead of hashbrowns as well. I had a standard breakfast of bacon and eggs with toast and hashbrowns. The two slices of toast... More
