Great food and great price

December 2015, new owners took over the Great Escape Restaurant. They obviously did not anticipate it to be so busy between Christmas and New Years. The food was delicious and you received a good portion for the price.

Good food , service was slow, only 1 girl taking care of approximately 30 people. The kitchen was one of the slowest I've ever experienced. Not licensed ? Are we in the 1920,s The licences dining room was closed. The pizza oven was broke. Other than the good food I wouldn't recommend eating there.

We stopped in for lunch around noon on a Sunday and there were only 3 other tables occupied. We waited to be greeted and given some menus, but there appeared to be no server around. Then a young girl came from the back and didn't seem to have a clue how to do her job. She searched for some menus... More

I recommend The Great Escape if you like waiting half hour to be served while five tables came in after you are served, eaten and paid while you still haven't order. The worst service I have experienced.

We went there for breakfast. The restaurant has a dining room which is open for dinner and a diner type cafe for breakfast and lunch. The food service is pretty basic in the cafe. Food okay but nothing special.

Ate supper then breakfast here. The place was busy so obviously others like it too! Dinner was freshly prepared for us - hambuger soup, followed by sandwiches. We watched 3 guys try to polish off those avalanche burgers! Only one was successful. Breakfast was quick, hot and fresh as well.
