“They were closing but still fed us”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

We arrived late into Sicamous and walked over to the closest place to eat. Though the kitchen was shut off they still produced a meal for us. This is a small town and peaks in tourist season so people cut them some slack...our food was good and the attitude was great

“Looks like a roadhouse, but the food is top notch”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Husband had salmon, and I had the veal cutlets. Excellent for both. Most dinner entrees around $15 to $20.

“Good food, good service, great atmosphere!”
Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

Stopped in with our two kids and being ex bikers, my husband and I loved the decor. The gal serving us was awesome. We did not experience what others said on here. Loved the patio and the food was very decent.

“Wow. Worse service ever.”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

Me and my boyfriend stopped in Sicamous for the night while driving through and the only thing we could really find to eat at (not fast food) was this place. Worst service I have ever had in my home city and on the road. The food was fine, that wasn't the issue. We came in and it said to seat ourselves so we went into the patio. Worst chairs made for giants. Server came over (eventually) and took our orders of 2 pops and 2 waters and we ordered at the same time 2 appetizers and 2 meals (with gravy for my fries). We sat there for ten minutes for our pops (no waters as specifically asked) and then an additional almost thirty min for our meals. Our apps didnt even come, I asked about them when our meals arrived and she brought them after (... ok?) and then I reasked for our waters, which she then only brought one!! I also asked about the gravy missing and she said the kitchen was out (thanks for letting me know?).
We were eating are meal and another table needed a ketchup bottle, she took ours and gave it to them insted of giving them their own! I am usually pretty fair on this site but this place blew my mind. Server was nice but it doesnt make up for zero serving skills.

Dear Knoblock,

Thanks for your time in writing a review. I am sorry to hear that you received the level of service that you have described in detail. Often in the busy summer season, due to high volumes meals can take a bit longer than normal. That said, we pride ourselves on efficient and professional service, and we apologize for falling short of this on your last visit. This is certainly not the norm, nor our standard.

We have shared your experience with our staff, so we can learn from the experience. We hope you will give us another shot in the future, as we know we are way better than what you experienced. Happy to hear you enjoyed your food once received however!
