We decided to try the Sunday brunch. There are plenty of options to choose from. The roast beef was just the way I like it. Everything I tried was delicious. Service was friendly. Our only complaint, was the price of the brunch per person. We had sticker shock when we received the bill. Now, if I had tried one of... More

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. Very nice atmosphere and good service. The special steak dinner was delicious and just enough. We didn't feel over stuffed and didn't waste anything. It was a complete meal with salad, bread, vegetables and steak cooked to perfection. The price was so reasonable too. It was good that the hotel staff recommended it.

I wanted this place to be better. Awesome building, with a great story, stained glass, originally looking floors & bar. An off putting smell when I first walked in though that tended to linger. Service was pretty good, we enjoyed eating on the bar side. We were just a bit to late for the Sunday brunch. Everyone seemed to enjoy... More

During the lunch hour the liquor bar is converted to an all-you-can-eat salad bar. Fresh lettuce, spinach, sprouts, and vegetables are the basics for a delicious salad. Add strips of cold beef, turkey, or ham; then your choice of home made salad dressings. Round out your lunch with mini muffins, your choice of prepared salads, a bowl of hot soup,... More

We have been going to The Chances R since I was a kid and now we take our family. Amazing food. Especially the Pan fried chicken and we also love the Nachos. Also if you like dessert the have some of the best around. The carrot cake is my personal favorite!

We visited Chances R on a busy Sunday evening. Service for seasting was fairly prompt. We didn't have reservations so expected a bit of a wait. Food was good, portions were more than ample. A feature we enjoyed were the homemade salad dressings brought to you tableside to add according to your likes. We'd visit again, making reservations in advance.

We went there for dinner. We ordered and the girls started with the house soup. The soup was pretty cold and my sister-in-law send it back while my wife had it as is. It took over 10 minutes for the reheated soup to be brought back. Both thought the soup was excellent. The girls had the pan fried chicken and... More
