The food is always excellent, plentiful, not expensive and comes fast. The staff is the friendliest, and they are not opposed to accommodating requests. Lots to choose from, and a clean comfortable setting.

The service was ok, but the food was disgusting. Our fries were overdone and greasy and our chicken burgers was luke warm. The pie was less than appetizing. Would not go back. Third time still unlucky.

Super good poutine, gravy and real cheese curds. Prompt service. Huge portion. Friendly waitress. The menu has an interesting mix of asian and western. But the kind of mix that makes you want to come back because you bet they know what they're doing. The farmers market right beside it is awesome

I've been here once before for breakfast and this visit me and my mom came from Victoria about an hour away.

It is worth the drive for us because the service both times has been... More

This is hands down the worst food I have ever eaten. Greasy, tasteless and no presentation. Inside of restaurant is a dump. This is the first last and only time I will be somewhat poisoned in this greasy dive.

The staff were friendly and helpful, more than just a smile. Conversed and willingly explain items on the menu. My Red Rooster burger was custom made (condiments) for me and was great. Homemade fries and choice of white or malt vinegar. My dinner companion enjoyed her BLT and was greatly satisfied. Have a glance at the photograph of Jack Nicholson... More

A late start, hunger and a full parking lot was the signal for us to make our first stop at this new road side diner. While we were seated in the last available table our service was prompt with the coffee served before we read the breakfast menu, another good sign. While many places offer bigger menus we had ample... More
