The ice cream was ok, nothing special. It took a couple minutes to get. Then we decided to go inside for a hot dog (only ice cream can be ordered outside). It was extremely slow to even get to give our order, even though there were only two parties in front of us. The woman was a bit older, not... More

Whitecaps has a warm and cozy, somewhat dated atmosphere that is certainly comfortable. We were warmly greeted by Jazz and promptly seated. Our dinner arrived in a timely fashion and both entrees were very good. My wife had the Lobster Tail and thoroughly enjoyed it and I the Prime Rib which was excellent. It was served with an accompaniment of... More

The food is decent, the service is OK, the atmosphere is old and definitely not fancy. The portion sizes were great and this time we were there with a really large group and they had no problem accommodating us, even with a special limited menu.

Upon entering the restaurant at 5:30pm, we were told to go to the back where there weren't any lights on. We sat our children down and the waitress came over and turned the lights on and let us know there was a buffet going but it wasn't ready. We waited for the rest of our group and when they arrived...

I have gone to this restaurant many times when the owner`s parents ran it and I loved it. I came in with my husband who is a minority along with my 2 young grand daughters.There were only 2 people in the restaurant.

We were so excited about our experience. The food was all homemade and fresh. We will definitely come back with many people. The server Jazz was so pleasant and very professional. Her husband Bill was a pleasure to talk to. What a nice couple they make. See you soon.

We stopped by on a visit to Gimli for the day. We were seated right away and the server was very helpful. The food was very good and the portions were excellent. Our food arrived in record time and we were all very pleased with our meals. I will most definitely be back for another clubhouse sandwich.

The food is well cooked and plenty of it. They are open all year and help the community buy coupon in the local paper. So buy from a supporter and not just a summer seasoner.

It's got a quiet country vibe. The servers and staff are incredibly kind and the Jazz's Deluxe Burger is amazing. You definitely get more food than you can eat most of the time, but what's wrong with that? I'd definitely go back.

This place is on the smaller side and can get crowded so you may have to wait a while depending on when you go. Good place for some fast food fix.
