Wasn't too bad

The portions were ample and service was good but the burgers weren't anything to get excited about; they were okay. The skillet brownie and ice cream rocked.

Visited with a toddler and we both liked the decor and atmosphere. The servers were happy and attentive. The menu is a Canadian-Southern mix - they have poutine and mac n cheese but no salmon! Would have been nice to see some Canadian produce on the menu as well. Food came quickly and was tasty enough. Seems their star dish... More

This downtown Memphis venue is not just another place to get a burger with any and all the toppings. Menu offers plenty of options, serving portions are ample, and atmosphere is campy and fun. Our party of 12 had nary a complaint about the taste of everything from burgers to buffalo-style chicken to catfish. The environment is straight out of... More

We were seated quickly and placed our order. The food was great. My wife and I had a Memphis Burger which had a fried egg and cheese on it mmmm,... More

We didn't want the buffet for Sunday lunch at The Peabody and the hostesses highly recommended this restaurant right across the street and are we glad they did. The menu was extensive and we found several vegetarian options which we ordered. When the food came it was well presented and delicious. Be sure to have lunch here right after watching... More

It's an average restaurant... I find the reviews here quite overrated. During my visit, they had run out of soft drinks, so I had to have my burger with ... orange juice. The meal itself was good, but I was expecting something more. The place may look "canadian", but as far as I remember from the year I spent in... More

The food was good with a predominate American grub, but a nice mix of Canadian dishes and southern specialties. The atmosphere is laid back, and decor is hunting lodge-ish (if you don't like mounted animals watching you eat, probably not the place for you). Server was friendly, and prices very fair.

I had some of the best food here! The deep fried pickles are mind blowing! I was craving these so badly!!! The Blue cocktails (Maid of the Mist?) Was one of the best cocktails I have ever had! Not to mention there was so much in it! Great value!
