The restaurant was freezing cold. Another customer sent their uncooked eggs back, and so did we. The food in General was poor. The waitress was rude and not properly trained.

Where to begin? The hotel check in is a small dirty convenience store, UHaul rental(also a terrible experence), and a bus depot. The man working looked like he might try to sell me drugs, but instead told me I had to wait until he was done with the bus before I could talk to him. While waiting I decided to... More

Finally a waiteress come and showed us to a table,by now there were 3 other groups behind us. We again waited for menus,which my... More

I have eaten here many times in my travels through Revelstoke but this time may be my last stop in this restaurant. The food used to be very good with fast service and the last two visits have been less than desired. This time there were two servers and we waited over an hour for our food. My chicken burger...

My family and I used to visit this restaurant every time we travelled through Revelstoke, so tonight I thought it would be nice to extend the tradition to my partner and our newborn son. My partner went in first to grab a table while I fed the baby (so that he didn't cry so as not to disturb the experience... More

Well worth a stop when traveling Highway #1 West near Revelstoke. All the family and kid oriented foods you would expect, in generous quantities. Hot and tasty. A little trouble with a backed-up kitchen when we were there, but the waitress was very attentive. I had the Mexican breakfast special. Very satisfying and affordable. Remember, vehicle traffic around here can... More

Terribly long wait for average food, the kitchen was incompetent with a slightly below average waitress. It was a real neat looking place that actually had us excited until we had to wait an hour for our food. They finally did the smart thing and closed the restaurant because the cooks couldn't handle very simple orders.

Indian buffet on Friday's is decent but the rest of the week the food is ok if you're hungry enough. Surly servers add to the atmosphere.

Had to find our waitress..she was sitting in the back talking to the cook about the latest gossip. The tables were dirty with leftover food, and the utensils were the same. The food was borderline disgusting..I couldn't eat my patatos and the hamburger steak I'd ordered was like eatting wet cardboard! The waitress was non existent during our meal and... More
