Good Lunch Special

I wished I'd read Snowgriz's review before ordering lunch here this week. Although I've never had a complaint in the past after eating in the Pub, the fireplace room or the restaurant, this time was more misses than hits. The list: 1. The Monte Cristo sandwich had stale (freezer-burn?) flavoured turkey which was dry/tough so I dissected my sandwich to... More

I am a local resident of Fernie, and I inquired about having a private breakfast buffet put on the morning after a family wedding. Shayne B. and her staff were very willing and eager to do this for our fairly large group. Just want to give Shayne and Kayla and the rest of the kitchen and dining room staff a... More

We Sometimes the food has been very good and other times bordering on terrible. Stick with the pub style food like wings and the meal should be good. Service is usually very good as long as the place isn't packed.

I was there with a large group of guys on a stag, and have to say we waited over an hour for our food to arrive. It was good once in front of us, but considering there was only two other tables dining at the restaurant at the time the wait wasn't in line with what you would expect. Will... More

Friendly staff, good quality food and coffee. Tasted like the chef's cared about their product. Smaller space but worth it.

Very good lunch while passing through on a Sunday. New staff was wonderful, friendly and accommodating. I had the Turkey/Cranberry/Brie sandwich which was okay. Nice presentation, good in house bread... more like a tomato/lettuce sandwich. Husband enjoyed his Philly steak sandwich. House wine was very good.

This is a good stop if you don't want to leave your hotel. They don't serve any specialty foods, just good old style cooking. Good for seniors or families. I visited the restaurant when our parents came to visit and stayed in the hotel. They didn't have energy to visit the downtown, so they just ate at Max. They thought... More

This restaurant is a highway hotel restaurant. Being a young couple we felt surrounded by elderly groups. The food was average at best. It was conveniently located in our hotel. It's a pretty easy walk downtown to find some real restaurants and pubs.
