“Average food”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

This restaurant offers good value for very average food. Portions are very generous and the service can be inconsistent. Sometimes is good, others not so much. We like to support local business rather than big chain restaurants and this one is always a good option for a family outing.

“Starting to go downhill”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Have eaten many tmes at the LA Grill. The service is spotty... had to ask 3 times to have the tV turned down. (only ones there). Brought the main out be fore the apps, had to tell the waitress that usually an app comes before the main. Had the currey penne. Grainy sauce with little flavor. Maybe a bad night for the staff but still unacceptable.

“Average food, good value”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

When I searched the restaurants I noted that there was another restaurant with the same name and address but in Richmond Quebec. I believe this is an error and have informed Trip Advisor. However, the Quebec restaurant remains in their search engine database.

We went there on a Saturday afternoon around lunchtime. It was busy but not full. This was my first time there, but my wife has been there several times to have a quick meal.

The menu consists of the usual appetizers - calamari, wings, nachos, etc.
It also has a variety of different burgers including a veggie burger and a salmon burger. The sandwich selection includes a chicken club and a veggie club.

You can check the restaurant website to see the full menu and pricing.

I had the bacon mozzarella cheese burger that came with roasted red potatoes and a green salad for $7.95.

My wife had the shrimp avocado sandwich that came with a green salad and roasted potatoes.

My friends had the BLT sandwich and the tomato linguine pasta with garlic bread. Both of them said their meal was good.

The ‘roasted’ red potatoes looked like boiled potatoes (1 ½ small potatoes). They certainly didn’t have any colour associated with a roasted root vegetable.
The house salad dressing was oil and vinegar based lacking in flavour. It needed a little more herbs and spices.

The burger was okay; nothing spectacular.

The bill came to $35 before tips and taxes for 3 coffees and 4 meals.


The quality of the food was average. The food could have been tastier and better prepared. The meal was good value for the price paid.


The restaurant has a value-priced lunch menu on weekdays. The lunch special is $5.95 with the purchase of a beverage.

The service was adequate.

Overall, for the price, serving size and the quality of the food I would rate it, at best, 3 out 5 (average).
