We went to the Storms on the river yesterday before our evening out to the Sagebrush theater.
As we were on a limited time table, I made a reservation.
On our arrival a nice table overlooking the river was ready for us. It is very relaxing watching the boats go by and seeing all the birds and ducks flying around.
We were seated promptly by a friendly hostess and our waitress arrived soon after with water, menus etc. We mentioned that our theater started at 8 and that we were a bit rushed.
It was no problem.
We ordered a bottle of Pinot Grigio from a local winery which was excellent. Their wine list had a good selection of local wines that were very reasonably priced.
We ordered a chicken and ribs for my wife and I had some fresh oysters as appetizers and then some oysters Rockefeller, which are baked on a bed of spinach with onions, cream and a touch of pernod, All cooked perfectly. then I ordered some fried calamaris with tzatziki sauce, also tasty.
the restaurant has an interesting dessert and cocktail menu, which we will have to sample on our next visit.
Our server was friendly, attentive and got us served in our time frame.
Our entire dinner was less then $ 100 for two which is very reasonable for an excellent evening out.
on another subject,
In the last year or so there has been a lot of so called trendy or fancy restaurants who believe that the best way to keep diners at their establishment, is to rip them off with overpriced wines! To them I would like to say, we all know the price of a bottle of wine from the winery or liquor store ! And we are not all on an expense accounts, maybe that is why we either not order any of your wines or else are not coming back?
As a restaurateur and chef , who has been in the hospitality industry longer then he likes to admit,I would like to give the owner or manager of the Storms my compliments. Excellent performance. Your staff genuinely enjoys working there and it shows.
We will be back on our next visit to Kamloops, and I will recommend the Storms to our friends.
