I have been here many times, food is good. Wish they had more options fro Gluten free. As when I go there, there is only 1 item I can have other then salad. it can get loud here, so if you want a quiet romantic atmosphere this isnt the place, good to be with friends.

Turned up on spec (on a Friday) and despite being busy, we were well looked after and got and got a table very quickly. The staff were very attentive and certainly helped tailor the meal to satisfy the needs of both a meat eater and a vegetarian - thank you!!

We were coming in from 4 hours out of town and hoping to attend the Owen Sound Attack vs. Erie Otters game. I e-mailed Shorty before we left home to see if he would be showing the Leafs vs. Habs game on TV in case we couldn't get tix for the Attack game. He called me back on my cell... More

Considering we didn't have any reservations on Valentine's Day, they were about to accommodate us at the bar. The service was great with the very friendly bar staff. The dinner special was wonderful, cooked just right and portions were large - more than I could eat!
