This restaurant experience was horrible. The hipster service was slow and rude, and we waited an hour for a burger - which wasn't good at all. Soggy bun, undercooked meat, and thrown together ingredients. The bathrooms were disgusting, the floor was dirty, the table was full of crumbs. I had to ask the server to clean the table. He did, but only after he dropped his cloth on the floor and then went right to "cleaning" our table. You can source all the local food you want, and come up with wonderful recipes, but McD's or Burger King would be a better choice; at least you'll have decent service, clean tables and a bathroom that doesn't resemble and smell like an actual pig pen.

Had lunch there recently. Food was quite good, waitress was nice, but service was terribly slow. I know some people went in, waited for a bit, and left due to lack of service. Not an overly clean place either.

First time in storefront location last Friday. Service was slow, server was great, place could use some imagination...even the menu's were cheap, cheap, cheap.

My Fish and Chips were great, as were my wifes, son-in-law wasn't impressed with burger, forgot condiments he asked for, daughter liked donair burger.

In short, won't rush back...but would eat there again.

We had the Firehouse burger there the other evening and it was over handled to the point that the texture was terrible, not juicy, and was just generally disappointing. The main flavour was taco seasoning, and they had obviously really worked this into the hamburger, thus producing the canned-meat texture.
I will give it a second chance, but this first experience was very disappointing--and expensive for what we got.

Food was fair. Wait was almost an hour. Table was dirty. Cutlery had to be exchanged for clean stuff. Floor was dirty. Will not be back to the storefront location.
