My husband and I went for dinner with our grandchildren. Wonderful welcoming atmosphere and staff very accommodating to some strange requests. I had the ribs which are definitely some of the very best I have ever had and my husband was very happy with his hot Hamburg.

I asked the waitress for a recommendation. She said Honey Garlic Ribs or Wings. I had the ribs. 1/2 rack was meaty and delicious, nice hot baked potato and cole slaw. Next time in Cochrane I will be back.

I asked if I could take pictures this was my answer from the restaurant waitress. There were also fish on the wall but sort of behind the TV . I do think of my fishing friends. Food was good. I had their BBQ chicken on Kaiser. This is a good easy eating place. A feels good place to stop.

This is the place to go if you want great ribs. The portions are large and fresh. The staff is friendly. The restaurant and washrooms are clean. It was packed every time we were there. Will return.

We went to JRs for a family meal and figured it would be busy as the restaurants are often busy during the winter months so we made a reservation. It was surprisingly not that busy (maybe half full) and I am not even kidding when I say we waiting 2 hours to get our meal. We were seated by the... More

There were 10 of us and we all had the ribs. Service was excellent and the ribs were the best I have ever had. You won't leave here hungry. A must visit place for those visiting Cochrane

Stopped in for dinner. Food was good, they are locally famous for their honey garlic ribs. Food was pretty good (Ribs included). Service was also good. This place seemed somewhat expensive, but then again maybe that comes with being this far north?

Thank Tom M
