We went here the first time in August, in fact, we waited around until it opened that day, because we had missed it the time before when we came to Revelstoke. They post their menu on the window and it looked good. So we finally got in there the other weekend and it was great. A good atmosphere and depending... More

The interior ist unique. You will sit on a old snowboard or ski, it's cool. The pizza is not in Pizza- Hut-Style and very delicous. The steak is right beeing hungry for after work. The staff is young and very friendly - and good looking...

We were somewhat disappointed with the food here. There was nothing to entice us to return. Even the service was unfriendly.

We eat here often, the food is always good and the service is friendly. I love the atmosphere, always busy and the sound of people having a good time all around you.

It may be because we are young adults but they take atleast 15 minutes to bring our drinks and another 10 to take our order. Luckily good food

Stopped by because of decent rating on TripAdvisor, but we weren't really impressed with our meals. One of us had a chicken breast sandwich, and she really loved it. One had the pulled pork sandwich, and found it pretty gross, and it looked awful, and I had the brisket sandwich, and it was just so-so (maybe if the gravy was... More

We went here for two night running and really enjoyed it. The service was quick although I was disappointed that on both nights they had no buffalo although it was on the menu! But our alternative meals were yummy. The decor was great full of things to read, great place if you are passing through as we were.

This was our second supper here, last year through we sat on their nice patio but this time we ate inside. We had a delicious pizza (the medium size was lots enough for two, the large one looked huge). The staff kindly accommodated us by turning on a football game we wanted to watch, just video no audio so as... More

I used to like this place until recently. Sometime this spring they must have changed chefs, because now all their food is oily, greasy, too big or too small. The final straw was when I ordered the Carbonawesome (carbonera pasta) and it was ice cold in the middle but the first bite actually burnt my lips. Don't order the ceasar... More

For us this was a fun place... full of locals and young folks. The food was good, but the upbeat atmosphere was even better. We enjoyed this and think others will too.
