This place has amazing food, amazing weight staff, pretty good prices and a perfect atmosphere. Good for business meetings, friends night out, date night or even family meals.

The mussels were delicious. Definitely order them with the wine sauce. I showed up on wing night (Monday) and got 10 wings for $6. They were okay and I filled up quickly so I didn't finish the wings. A business associate recommended their poutine, but I wasn't impressed. The service was good though.

Delicious food, excellent service. The restaurant a bit dated, but clean. Three of us went, and orders included fish tacos, a spicy chicken quesadilla and a bowl of seafood chowder....everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals.

Good food and great atmosphere, I stayed at the Lake View Inn and you get a discount for the restaurant, I'm glad I took advantage of it. I had a wonderful prime rib dinner.

Dropped in late one evening on a road trip with no expectations, or review reading. The parking lot was not as full as neighbouring restos, we were hungry, beer was on offer, and the venue appeared welcoming. We were quickly seated in the half full restaurant. the interior was modern and clean. A perusal of the menu was surprisingly eclectic... More

Decided to stop in for dinner as reviews over the the last year seemed to indicate that this place had really picked up in terms of food quality and service. Maybe we hit a bad day but we were not at all impressed, in fact it's a struggle to even call our experience average. We had the baked lasagne which... More

Figure I'd stop in for a lunch with all the positive reviews. It is a little above average I would say. But not the best I've ever had. Ordered the Yorkies with vegetables and seafood chowder. Taste: 3.5/5 Price of lunch was $25 with a drink. I'll give it a second chance next time I'm in town, but this first... More

The locals have a bias against this place because it replaced the beloved "Fogg n Suds", but with new management from a couple of years ago, this place has cemented it's place in my list of top places to eat in the normally god awful hell hole of restaurants in Fort St John. In this industrial northern BC town, Roustabouts... More
