“Paenuts re available in the Bar area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

We stopped in for a light supper and a few drinks the other evening and were pleasantly surprised. The décor inside is nice and there is a glass partition between bar and dining areas. We opted for the bar side. We ordered a drink and I noticed something on the floor near our table. It turned out to be peanut shells. I was pleasantly surprised to see this as it almost extinct in Ontario. We do see it more on the U.S. and it is a nice touch in a bar. The food and service were both excellent and the cost was in line or below other "roadhouse" style restaurants. We will definitely return in the future.

“not too bad...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

I think this restaurant is much better then the overated restaurants in Kingston. I have been there twice. The waitress was not phony like they are in some restaurants. The food has been good so far. You can expect the restaurant to be busy at times. It is worth a try if you have realistic expectations.

“This was not a good experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

We showed up, table for 3. Warned that it was a 25 min wait, no problem with that, it was Saturday night and the place has only been open a month.

40 minutes go by, and though tables were cleared and set, we were at the top of the list after 20 minutes, and yet we were still standing. After 15 minutes of seeing these tables empty, an inquiry informed us that they were reserved.

More waiting. After 50 minutes, get the worst table in the place. At least we could sit now. The waitress was prompt and pleasant, but the food took another 45 minutes even though we ordered in the first 5 minutes.

Manager came by, apologized, and told us that he'd take 50% off for the inconvenience.

Bill comes, guess we got downgraded to 25% off. Good follow through.

In all, for this type of place, the meal should have taken an hour. Instead, it was 2.5 hours before we escaped.

Those reserved tables? They stayed empty for 50 min, 75 min, and 80 min respectively.

Great first impression.

Oh yeah, the food. The menu was interesting, the meal decent. Price in line with what you'd expect for a place of this type.


Overall? Unlikely to return, or recommend the place. Unlike most of my reviews, this is a local place to me.

Fail.
