This is your classic bar scene, even though it has a family sitting area. The best restaurant that you can compare this to is probably Kelsey's. Even though the prices are a little bit higher, this place is ideal for the typical modern family. I would recommend this place to anyone.

ate here with a friend for late dinner last night, great selection on the menu, service top notch, but only if you have no concerns about entertainement/food budget. As a senior the only thing I found reasonable was the lunch menu but it was dinner time... as a senior i can't pay 15.85 to $19.00 for five of six salad offerings...far too expensive..nothing there for the budget minded diner. Its a great place, clean, service is good, food is good..BUT I guess they are caterinhg to the "yuppy larvae" generation who don't give a dam what they pay dining out...not for me I won't be back.

We love it here and probably come about once a week now. It took us awhile after moving to the area to venture in, and once we did we were converts and have been coming regularly for years. My favourite thing is that after you've been there a few times, the staff remember you, and it is really nice to walk in and be greeted warmly by people you've seen before.

There are four seating areas -- a nice bar, a front area with a fireplace that is always lit in winter time, a back area with light that's a bit dimmer, and a patio out back in season.

We've never had a problem with anything we've ordered. Favourites are the chicken parm, fish, grilled chicken wrap, soups, veggie sandwich, amazing nachos. They're great with special requests -- even on occasion being able to make us something that isn't on the menu anymore.

jawny Bakers is our neighbour restaurant. The food is great, with the feature menu changin monthly, the staff is attentive and super friendly and in the wintertime we enjoy our meal in the bar lounge and come the nice weather we are out back on the patio edging the ravine. What more could you ask for? Our family has been coming here for years.

Although we live in the neighbourhood, we've never eaten here as we had heard the food was not that great. We thought we'd give it a try after reading the recommendation in Today's Parent magazine.

This is really a family place - the service was fabulous and they love kids. The layout was spacious (there was a ton of room between tables) and the patio (which we could not get a seat on) was lovely.

We had the Bayou Jambalaya and the Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf and both were very good. (My husband usually doesn't like anything except jambalaya straight from New Orleans but he was quite satisfied with his meal.) Our daughter had the grilled cheese which came on whole wheat bread and looked delicious.

The only downer with this place is that the mains are more expensive than your typical family chain restaurant so we can't see eating here too often.
