My kids and grand kids enjoyed the meal we had here. At first, I feared the two young grandchildren (1 and 2) might be too tired (thus too fussy) for us to enjoy our meal but, thankfully, they proved us wrong. We had some of the best pizza we've ever enjoyed in a restaurant and will definitely be back for... More

We went to Whitecaps after it was recommended by a competitor who sometimes frequents this place for a change of scenery. What a great deal! We both ordered the cheese omelette special; no problem with our requests for mushroom and tomatoes to be added to the mix. The restaurant was quiet and we had an interesting chat with our host...

We stopped in for dinner at Whitecaps early this summer and again at the end of September. This time with family. It was just as great this time as it was the first time. Sure the place could use a little sprucing up but if great Prime Rib is what you are after you will not be disappointed. The service... More

What a nice surprise! Our server was the family patriarch who worked for his son and daughter-in-law. He spent time with us and was the bearer of tasty food at great prices. The restaurant is spacious, old style, comfortable for couples or families. Closed by 8 pm but open early. Very good menu, European flavour.

In the last 2 years they have solved their staffing issues as every restaurant in Gimli can attest to that it is tough to get reliable staff---service is fast friendly and courteous-orders are prepared from fresh ingredients and comes to the table promptly--actually amazingly fast--the chicken or prime rib specials are fantastic. I highly recommend the soup--you get a real... More

They seem ill equipped to handle large crowds and with Gimli being a tourist town large crowds are often the norm.

With 45 minute waits at other restaurants we thought we would try the mainly empty Whitecaps. BIG MISAKE! We were not seated at our table rather, our waitress nudged her head and walked away. So, we found a table ourselves before the most sullen woman came with menus and instead of passing them out to each of us she tossed... More

Just about everything about this restaurant was unsatisfying. The smell, the food, the service... It was the last restaurant we went to on our family getaway weekend and the worst restaurant I've ever been to, literally. Unfortunately, they do not deserve your business. It looks like a nice fish and chips place from the outside, but spare yourself; it's not.

Went on a day trip to Gimli with the intention of having lunch at Whitecaps restaurant (had coupon). After deliberating outside for a few minutes, decided to go in despite not many customers inside on the holiday Monday???. Our party of four was seated promptly to be told they were short staffed (first clue) . Our order was taken and... More
