“Great New Year's Eve Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Went with a group of friends to dinner on New Year's Eve and had a great time! When we arrived, our table was ready and we were sat quickly. Our server was very friendly and knowledgable. They had a special menu on that night and there was something for everyone at our table. We had the spinach dip to start with...wow! We all ordered something different and were all pleased...although I would say that the ribs were the best I've ever had! All in all, a great night with great friends, great service and great food. Would definately recommend!

“VERY DISAPPOINTED”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

We had our Christmas party here last weekend and I was very disappointed and so glad I was not paying for it myself.... the Caesar salad was the poorest excuse I've had for a salad I had four croutons, a few pieces of parmesan cheese and some dressing with no taste made of oil.....my steak which I ordered well done was red inside and the veggies were so hard I had wondered if they were cooked at all??? And then after all this disappointment I thought the decadent walnut brownie was going to save it all but again this was, I am sure a vachon cake that the wrapper was taken off of and served with a little bit of ice cream not even a drizzle of chocolate to be found and you call this decadent?????

Atmosphere was good if that counts.

“Pork chops and service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

We dined there Dec 11 2013 . I ordered the pork chops and ordered it well done when it arrived and I cut it was raw inside with blood dripping out of it. I was really hungry so I at the mashed potatoes. The waitress never cam back to check on our table there for I could not say anything. the Person bussing the table came and took our plates still no waitress. when we got the bill I told her about it she told me I should have told her there was a problem but I could not have done this as she never returned to the table. I was billed full price .
Also ladies bussing tables should not be wearing mini skirts shorter then their shirts . They got lots of looks and comments not sure it was positive thing if families were dining .

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

On a recent visit here, my wife and I decided to eat lightly. She had a salad, which she said was not very tasty and kind of uninteresting. For my part, I decided to have two appetizers: potato soup and calamari. The soup was somewhat glutinous and, I thought, had little flavor. The calamari was inedible - rubbery and greasy, with a too-heavy coating of batter. With one glass of wine each, this set us back $80.00. Not a happy experience.

“Excellent ribs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

We went to Baton Rouge in Halifax for lunch today. Our meal started off with a great soup, then we had the best ribs we've ever had in a restaurant. They were fall off the bone with an excellent BBQ sauce. This was served with French fries, which were also excellent. The service was very good, our waiter was very attentive to detail. It was well worth the drive from Shediac, NB for this meal.
