Had lunch here with a group of workmates recently. This is a convenient location in a busy business park. The decor and service were quite nice. Lunch options were varied and interesting. I had a crispy chicken caesar sandwich which was flavourful and reasonably priced. Overall, a decent lunch spot.

This restaurant is located in the Best Western in Dartmouth so it likely gets overlooked but it shouldn't! We had a business dinner here and the food was very good, the atmosphere was nice and the service was great! I would certainly recommend it for business and pleasure alike! The seafood and steak are very good and the presentation was... More

Hi Kim, It is true that we are tucked away in the Burnside Business Park, but a lot of local folks still find us. Thank you for the great recommendation and we hope to see you again soon. Ron More

The chef here is amazing and the atmosphere is great. I have been a few times and I find the lunch hour service to be a little slow. It's tough to get in and out within 45mins which is important when popping out of the office.

Good Day SKMullins, Thank you for the great review. Our lunch service is guaranteed to get you in and out in 45 minutes, and we do this without an express menu. Express menus at other "big box" have them prepping food before ordering or they have "boil in the bag" items that can be completed quickly. We make everything from... More

The caramelized banana French toast has just the right blend of crunch and sweetness. Paired with a side of bacon, and it's breakfast perfection! And I can't say enough about the friendly waitstaff. Definitely a place I'd highly recommend.

So i stayed here for a conference and we didn't feel like leaving the hotel so we went downstairs and gave it a shot. We had a group of 8 people. First of all the portion sizes are extremely small, i ordered the steak and scallops. The steak was maybe 6 oz and 2 oz were gristle, it was cooked... More

Good Day Irishbluetraveller, We are sorry that your experience was less than stellar. As you can tell by the other reviews here, your experience is not the norm. The Sirloin Steak that comes with the steak and scallops is a 6 oz steak. It is a part of the bigger meal. We would never suggest anyone to buy scallops at... More

The food was good. I think the waiter was a greenhorn that had little or no experience with sit down dining.
