“Improved”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

We went there with visiting friends . Each of us had a diferent entree, ribs, pasta, salmon and chicken. All the meals were delivered in a timely manner and piping hot. Our waitress was friendly and prompt. The only downers that I can mention is that the music is way too loud and that they don't take reservations after 6:00 pm. I think it is fair value for your dollar. The first time we went was shortly after they opened and the experience was not great. This time it was much improved.

“Good food, horrible service!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012 via mobile

Greeted promptly, good seating, nice atmosphere. Our server then came over 15 minutes later to take our drink order, came back another 10 minutes later to tell us that our drinks of choice were unavailable because of an electrical problem (which the explanation made no sense to me and I'm even an electrician)
She quoted to us that we would get discounted drinks because of the problem (excellent!) the bill came and of course no discounted drinks! The servers constantly congregated around the bar, ignoring other customers. I saw on several occasions that other tables got up to retrieve a server for their table. Food was prompt, good quality, and delicious. But because of the service this wil not be a repeat for me.

“Just Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

We went for dinner on a Sunday before a movie. The service was quite good and the food was fine. I too did not appreciate the giant tv with questionable music videos playing. My Caesar wasn't great. The fish tacos were not bad. Just nothing was good enough to make us want to return.

“A West Kelowna Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Great ambience, great food, friendly service! Try the 'Twisted Tails' for a starter! And the owners ... they always make you feel welcome!
