So I ordered a stiirfry with no noodles/rice and extra veggies and meat. Not thinking this would turn it into a $45 stiirfry for lunch for one person! Will never make that mistake again. A little warning from the server would have been nice instead of the smirk on her face when I asked her why my bill was so... More

Have eaten here twice in 2015. The interior decor has not changed since it was renovated as a 'Fogg 'n Sudd' a number of years ago. We stopped going to it then because the menu got too 'trendy' for us. We came here with my brother a few weeks ago and were very pleasantly surprised. The food was great, the... More

I can't say anything special about this restaurant as nothing great really stand out. Average at best and a bit on the expensive side.

Thank you very much for your review of Roustabouts! I can appreciate your comments about the heating, this was a thorn in our side for over a week! With record low temperatures in the North at that time it was quite an impact on many area businesses. I even found it hard to keep my own home warm! Be assured... More

We chose this restaurant for a family supper after a wedding. They were accommodating for a last minute reservation. The restaurant was inviting and nicely decorated. The good was excellent (the Yorkshire pudding was a little overdone, but the BIGGEST I have ever seen!) my Seafood fettuccine was AMAZING--awesome flavour and fresh. Portions were generous. Service was really friendly and... More

The food was good but the kids meal was VERY small and we were charged for an extra drink. Overall it was a good meal though.

I eat here usually 3 times a month; date night, family night, and dinner with friends. Always good,fast,friendly. A pleasantly diverse menu and consistently good with more than just salad for grain-free diets like mine.
