Just what you want after a long day of driving

Coming off the highway (vacation road trip) too tired, but hungry - this restaurant looked easy and convenient. First impression - not so great. It seemed dated (early 90s) and dingy, though clean. And why were there so few other diners? Not promising...or so we thought. Two things totally... read more

Westwinds in the Best Western is perfect. Although the menu is about to change, the current productions are excellent food and a great value. Staff are extremely nice, Chef is very talented. The hotel's breakfast is served here, but it is not your traditional continental style. It is a sit-down, freshly made to order hearty breakfast to start your day... More

We are two ladies who lunch, but we hadn't eaten at Westwinds for a very long time. The renovated restaurant/bar looks great! Love the bar with taps, although I didn't check out the brews. Service was friendly but hesitant and, very unfortunately, not knowledgeable. (Probably a new employee, but it didn't make us feel very confident about how things were... More

Dinner was mostly bar type food. After a long day of snowmobiling would have liked better choices for dinner. Breakfast was good as well as the coffee. Servers were very nice and friendly.

We were staying at the Best Western Perth Hotel and didn't feel like driving in to town for dinner, so we checked out the Westwinds. The actual Restaurant was undergoing a reno , but a very comfortable temporary site was located in the huge hotel lobby. All four of us ordered a different menu item, and we were all equally...

Three of us stopped here twice in August 2014. Once on our way West and 10 days later on our way East. The first dinner was quite good for all 3 of us. Waitstaff was attentive. The experience was good enough we decided to come a second time. Except the high quality of the waitstaff, that dinner visit was a... More

Food was mediocre, desert was so so, the portions were small. Service we had was great from a upbeat vivacious lady. Price was too high for what we got. If we had a choice we would not go there.

I attended a business dinner at the Westwinds restaurant. The hostess was polite, promptly seated us and didn't seem to mind some of our foolishness in taking our seats. The decor really isn't anything special. It is clean and seems to have been recently redecorated. The waitress was there almost immediately and took our drink order. The beers came our... More
