Description: This is the story of how one man, Richard (Dick) Davidson, took his vision and all his culinary experiences and formed them all together to create BeauxDaddys Ca-NA-Jun (Kah-nay-jun) Grill House. Ten years ago, he bought the property that for 65 years, had been known as Uncle Franks Supper Club in Thunder Bay. Initially, he had several ideas for the property but eventually settled on renovating the former family restaurant with a new spin – something Thunder Bay hadn’t seen yet. After numerous trips to New Orleans and several dozen trips to various restaurants throughout the world, Dick dreamt up BeauxDaddys – the place where Louisianan roots are reintroduced to their original families – the Acadians.

“Birthday Celebration”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

This is the 3rd time being at this place and sorry to say the last ! Service was very very slow and none professional. I sent a email to the owner and never heard back . Kinda tells me everything. This is the first time EVER that we did not leave a tip.
As far as the food that we did get , the steak was very tasty , the seafood was sandy guess they forgot to wash it . Order a Ceaser drink, first one was very good and appearance was great , second was just a glass with Clamato in it , not sure what happened to the Garnish but the $$ was still there .
Sorry Beaux Daddys we are done with your service

Thanks for taking the time to post your comment. I personally apologize for your unsatificatory visit. There is no excuse for poor service and this is not reflective of what so many others have experienced. I never received an email regarding your visit. If you wish you can send it to beauxdaddys@live.ca and I can definitely help to remedy the poor experience you had with us. We strive to have excellent consistent service and amazing food as well and again I apologize if this didn't happen.

“Meatlovers paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

I know many steakhouse. Probably this is one of the best. Starting with kind, styled service. Continuing with an amazing 600 g rump amazingly cooked. With tasty creamed spinach.The basting sauce (chef secret) deserves the trip to Joburg! Very good wines per glass, very good deserts. Very fair prices for this unforgettable experience.

“6 Stars Needed!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

If 5 is the limit, Beaux Daddy's needs a 6 ... at least! It was a whole new experience for us. With a menu that is full of tempting creations, food that is tantalizingly prepared and an amazing taste experience, this place is definitely worth a visit. Our server was great and prices were amazing for all that you get. We'll be back.

“If you have LOTS of time then it's a great place to go”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

I will start with the positive first. The food was delicious! However that's about it for the positive list. When first arriving we waited for other members of our party to arrive, so we ordered apps... Was able to enjoy them 45 minutes later, since thats how long it took to get them. Then we all ordered. It was an hour and a half wait for our meals, and two of us got salads! We had expressed to the waitress we had another reservation; which I placed a deposit, and could not be late... We expressed this more then once, so when our meals was taking so long we asked the waitress what was going on. Especially after noticing tables that came in AFTER us had already enjoyed their food and left. Her response? She laughed! No apologies, nothing! Considering ALL sides are charged separate and how expensive this place this one would think the service would be better. I dont plan on ever returning, and I only rate this place a 3 because of the deep fried pickles. Over-Priced, Worst Service, Long Waits and inconsiderate staff!

Thank you for your comments. I completely understand your disappointment. We definitely want people to enjoy their experience at BeauxDaddys and waiting that long for your food is unacceptable as well as the way you were treated. Many past comments are positive about our food, service and atmosphere and you deserved to have the same great experience they did. Please contact me personally to discuss the matter and we'd like to make it up to you. Thank you for your comment about our food being delicious as well.

Warm regards,
