We had prime rib, ribs, well done french fries, and soups - all were done right: fresh, tasty, authentic natural spicing (not commercial sauces), but as important was the friendly attentive service by Simon from Quebec. Thank you. Well done.

We ordered fish and chips: one-piece and two-piece fish with coleslaw and fries. Very good. The other three in our party ordered salads and chicken and also gave their meals a hearty thumbs-up.
