“Poor dining experience, eat across the street at Kelsey's instead”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

I was there for a function today.
(1) The place is in need a thorough cleaning. The black sound speakers and lighting over the booths are grey with dust. The red truck above the tables is turning pink due the ridiculous amount of dust on it.
(2) The menus are fifty and need to be wiped down. Mine was terribly sticky while the person next to me got some sort of sauce on her hands from her menu.
(3) Our reservation had been made weeks ago but when we arrived for noon they were still setting up. The tables were haphazardly arranged.
(4) As for the tables, they are too small. Not enough room for your plate and an additional side dish.
(5) The menu format should be revisited. First, of all they are too large and when tables are joined into groups of two or more the menus cannot be fully opened as they impede on the next table. The font colour choice should be reconsidered because the page of steaks was barely readable.
(6) As for the food itself, I give it a 2 or 3 out of 10. If you check the menu out on line for its nutritional value you will find that 99% of the menu far exceeds the Health Canada daily sodium allowance. Perhaps this is because the most of the food lacks flavor and they are compensating with the overuse of salt. I ordered the Montana’s steak sandwich. Beware, those who do not eat dairy because it comes on a toasted garlic panini bun. It was neither a panini nor was it toasted. So it translates to a bun which comes to the restaurant pre-buttered with garlic butter. Not sure why anyone would want to have butter on their steak but again it could be another attempt to add flavor since the steak itself did not have any flavor what so ever. The meat was full of grilse so it was hard to chew and equally difficult to cut. I had requested no cheese or mushrooms but found a few mushrooms.
So overall, this was a poor dining experience and I would recommend that you go across the street and eat at Kelseys.

“good food great atmosphere”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

I have eaten here twice. The food is good and the portions are huge. The steaks ribs and wings are very good. Sandwiches are so big they don't Fit in your mouth. Drinks are served in canning jars.

“Delicious food, good portions”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Eating in Ontario, Canada, is expensive! But this evening we felt as if we got more for our money than we have at other places in the area. The waitress was very helpful and accommodating, particularly since some of their condiments are on the spicier side. The atmosphere was typical for a casual sports bar. The food was tasty.

“Bof!”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

The food was just ok. My chicken tacos were cold (!) and my spouse's burger was squeezed in between bread that was way too much for the meat. It was ok but nothing more.
