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

Stopped in to this place after reading about it on Tripadviser, imagine that.. The great reviews are true. The service was great. I was seated quickly, mind you it was not overly full at the time. The server was friendly and courteous. The food came quick and was delicious. Spicy sweet chicken sandwich. Beer was ice cold what else could... More

Average looking serving girls that think they are all of that. Food is over priced and actually just average. You can get friendlier better dressed nicer service with better food and lower prices jest about anywhere in the province. Not sure why this place has such high prices. Music so loud you couldn't hold a conversation. Maybe that's it, it... More

A very nice place with great tasting food and attentive staff. There were tempting items on the regular menu but I had one of the daily pasta specials and really liked it.

The restaurant is very clean inside and out! The food and service was excellent. The prices are good to go for the quality and amount of food you get.
