Good full service selection of foods and pleasant wait staff. Close to hotel too. The place has some character with an airplane displayed out front. Apparantly it is popular with local bush pilots on Wednesday Wing Night

Having traveled around the world and owning two successful restaurant, eating at this place was like eating at McDonalds. When I first walked in they seated me upstairs not telling that it was only bar food so I went through the hassle of moving down into the dining room. I ordered the fish and chips, and I was so very... More

We tried many restaurants in and around Sioux Lookout and this was very good by comparison with most. A nice interesting dining room, split level and plenty of atmosphere. Although it was only just after 6pm they had run out of the special, prime rib. Disappointing, but there was a reasonable choice of other dishes. Mine was good, but one... More

Excellent meal, a pleasant surprise. Steak, potato, asparagus and salad were all fresh and delicious; you'd be hard pressed to find a better steak dinner at the price ($35) anywhere. Service was quick and pleasant, atmosphere very relaxed, overall a nice experience.

After a long flight and 4 hour drive, we arrived in Sioux Lookout. Stopped in to eat dinner and relax before a week long fishing trip. Staff was very friendly and the service was good. We ordered nacho's for an appetizer and they were delicious. Chips were toasted and lots of cheese and toppings. We ordered fish and a burger... More

Great small place for the area. Definitely needs some updating. Varied enough menu, salads, pasta, meat dishes etc. Ate here twice, once had a spinach and chicken penne pasta dish, it was ok, chicken could have been cooked better and sauce seemed like it was from a jar. Don't expect much "flair" but it definitely is half decent. Returned for... More

When I was driving through Sioux Lookout to get to my hotel, I was drawn to the airplane outside the restaurant. The following evening, my friends and I went to Desperate Dick and Dirty Nellies for supper. It was wing night. When you walk into the restaurant, it has a great roadside style atmosphere. You can dine downstairs or if... More

Quick to be seated without a reservation. Staff are friendly, fast and willing to go above and beyond to see your needs are met. Good food selection and our meals were tasty and hot. Very accommodating to families with children/infants. Amazing waitress brought a tiny taste of soup for my eight month old on the house which we really appreciated!... More
