It was pretty quiet when I went for a late lunch. The waitress was excellent.... full of life and good humour. The food was also good. This place does live music on the weekends. I had great fun chatting with the waitress about a great band I know! .....The Ballantynes :-)

We had very late lunch and the place was empty. We had a really yummy burger with blue cheese and mushrooms, excellent fries and side salad. Both of us really liked the meal. Our server was good. Enjoyable meal on the balcony in the sun.

Our servers are always so friendly and inviting, I love that my friends can bring their children until 10. My husband was recommended the tacos when he couldn't decide, and he loved them! It's always a delight to dine here!

If you haven't had the tacos, tried the poutines, or even the regular fries, than you need to come here and see for yourself. Best place for a quick bite to eat, or stay and enjoy the company! Continuing customer-

Horrible ambiance, bad food, deserted place, waitress tried her best, but had nothing to offer. No choice in wines. A place to forget, and never go back.

I took my kids out for a treat lunch. Let me tell you, it certainly was a treat. The waitress was so great with both of my toddlers, from being silly with them to keeping them entertained with fun coloring pages. The food was great portion sized for the kids (off the kid menu) as well as my own meal.... More

Okay, not sure what this place does to their fries but they're amazing. We usual go back because of them. This time they had a Mexican menu and we got the quesadilla which was the best I've had. Tons of good flavours especially the cumin to top it off with some home made salsa. I'll always go back! It's nice... More

Beautiful restaurant. I'm baffled that it is not always packed in there. Definitely a must for food lovers and travelers. Staff is cray cray nice and take what they do serious.

Used to be the best restaurant in town but on recent visit had a very substandard meal.. Parts of our meal were not even hot. Very disappointing meal.
