“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Food is very good, price is high. Bad part is that there is not much room, even on the balcony. I think they tried to pack too many tables in. Seems to be a popular place, a lot of times I drive by and there are a lot of cars there. I have dined there maybe 3 times and have nothing to complain about.

“'No Service' resturant in Keewatin”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

Service is better in a 1 star vaction resort. We have tried this place 12 times or more sinse it opened and it's the same every time.
45 minutes to get your 1 st drink and lucky to get a second within an hour. Reservations mean nothing here. You can sit and wait at your table and watch someone come in and be seating 1/2 hour after you and they will be serviced and fed an hour before your Service pernsonal arrive with the Drinks you order 1/2 hour prior.
This has happened repeatly, Many of locally & wkenders I know have banded this place, due to fustrations with their service.
Their menu says 'Please be Patient , we slow' They should add ' We'll treat you like we really don't want you to come back again.
For the Prices they changed, we all felt like we'd been 'HAD'. Food is Above average, but always leave frustrated by the Service.
Spend you're money else where. There's no point in trying to enjoy an evening in this place.
