Ribs on Main Street.

The ribs are some of the best I have ever had, worth going for them alone. A limited menu but the food is well cooked and nicely presented. It's one of the few places where you can get Guinness in what is almost a dry town although things are slowly getting more liberal.

Came here on my Canadian trip, and as a Brit I had to try it. Lovely food and good selection of beers, which for a Scotsman is a must. Was in here twice in my visit. Very recommendable.

I like Sawney Beans overall, but I think of it as more of a lounge or place to look cool in summer sitting on the patio with friends, and the food quality is nothing spectacular. In the summer they always seem busy, but for us as a family, or for just me and my husband it's not our first choice.... More

We have always enjoyed coming here for lunch or dinner for the different atmosphere offered in a smaller city. We understand the ownership changed. Since it has, the menu and food has improved. From the wings to the London's Burning Burger, we have enjoyed the food and service we receive on a consistent basis. Will go back again and again!

We came here to have lunch and the service was great and the food was awesome and the price was within range of what you should pay. The lunch special was very good and I would come here again.

The place is very quaint, reminiscent of an old time pub Scottish pub (although I've not been to one). The building is small but they have done a great job in making the atmosphere cosy without crowding and the tables private. The food arrives in a timely manner, so if you're there for lunch there's plenty of time to get... More

Excellent Dinner Food! Their Bangers and Mash is fantastic and their chicken pot pie is the best I've ever had! The waiting staff are all great...friendly and quick. The atmosphere is also great, although they really need a separate area for the lounge, because you have to go all the way around the restaurant to get to the washrooms with... More

We came to Steinbach to meet family and enjoy a meal and a drink. The drinks selection are great and the menu looked promising. Unfortunately most of the food was only warm. We had a big table (14) and maybe they are not accustom to large groups. The atmosphere was nice.
