What a terrible experience! Waited for 10 minutes to get seated - another 15 to have a waitress come to our table! Asked for coffee, water and an iced tea! Tea and coffee came but no water and the coffee was cold! Sent coffee back and waited ages to get the coffee and water! We ordered a bowl of soup... More

We were given 3 menus when we sat down. Complete full breakfast menu as they serve all day breakfast, a 2 sided hamburger menu when endless varieties of gourmet burgers served on a large European crusty square bun which incl endless fries and coleslaw. And their full regular menu which offers EVERYTHING you could imagine, from liver and onions, to... More

At one time we had a reliable restaurant called Whiteys. The food was the one sure thing that would have us come back time after time. The servers were prompt and pleasant. Then they closed shop and moved over to the Giant Tiger mall across the road. After a stint in the food court they somehow amalgamated with Christians. Service... More

Great place to meet friends. Lots of room , great service, food very good. I had the lunch special chicken ceasar wrap with fries, my husband had the steak sandwich, both were very good, lots of food and very tasty. Amazing amount of items on the menu to choose from.

Ribs are the house specialty (along with chicken). But the ribs are the best in the area. Has a central fireplace that adds a lot of ambiance, especially on a cold winter's day.

My family and I have dined here several times and have always received good meals. Tonight was awful. My husbands wings were burnt, and the fries were either burnt or reheated on my hubby's & 3 kids meals. My meal arrived around 10 minutes after everyone else's and it came out without the fries(which were delivered golden not dark brown... More

I have eaten at the old Christien's for several years and was always disappointed it did not open until 11am. I was delighted to find when the new owners took over it opened extremely early for Breakfast. I eat Breakfast here several times a week often with friends. We find it an extremely good valued meal. A couple of times... More

The New owners have tried to keep the same dining experience that people are used at Christiens and also added breakfast. Anything you order will fill you up at this restaurant and leave you with leftovers. The prices are very reasonable considering the portions you receive. The New Owners are doing wonders for local non profit organizations by allowing Spaghetti... More
