We go here often. The food is always good. Not the healthiest, but absolutely delicious. Unfortunately, one server is beyond rude. Zero personality, zero respect. Basically throws your plate down along with the bill and buggers off for the rest of your time there. The rest of the staff are wonderful and pleasant. Not sure why this woman continues to work here if she hates her job so much.

been here many times only because there is not much choice in Selkirk. Very close seating, No where to hang your coat. Food pretty good(deserts look amazing though I've never tried). Most of the menu fried. Service is terrible. Very rude at check in and check out. I've heard that lady is the owner and has enough business that she doesn't feel compelled to good customer service., Not going back

My husband and I used to go here all the time- the food was usually pretty good, however- the service was always hit and miss, and we just got tired of that after awhile. Getting a second cup of coffee with breakfast was impossible, the food came, the bill set down at the same time- and never saw a server after that, and rather than suffer through the embarrassment of dealing with either the long time serving staff being backed up by the rude owners- we just found another place to go. Try the Selkirk Golf Club,better atmosphere, better service, better food, and always , always, always- a second, third or fourth cup of coffeee.

This is probably the best and most consistent food you could have without your mother making it. It is an Irish style restaurant with very nice, recently redecorated decor. We have dined there many times over the past decade and I only now thought of reviewing it as I usually review places on trips and not one near home. It is definitely our favorite restaurant in the area and well worth the drive from Winnipeg. Their portions are huge and always delicious. The tempura battered fish is probably their marquee menu item. This is a place where you can take your family and not have to re mortgage the house. When you leave to pay GOOD LUCK passing the dessert showcase. Bon Appetit.

The food was good, the service, contrary to many reviews was very good and I didn't run into a grumpy person in the place. The desert was very very rich and the serving sizes are all generous.
