“Great choices on small plates!”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Had a great dinner on the patio!
Choose 2 items from the small plate menu
Calamari and dry ribs
Both of these choices were great, the dry ribs have lots of meat on and there is a good amount
You get a good amount of calamari as well
I think our server was Carla?
We will definitely make sure we get the same server as she made our experience so much more enjoyable!

“What a disappointment!”
Reviewed 11 June 2014 via mobile

The view is really great but the food is terrible. We went there a few times hoping that the food would get better but it only good worse! What happened to cooking food? Just warming up boughten stuff is not what I would expect from a restaurant. Food is not cooked when ordered no it is put in steam tables and heated up a bit. McDonald's offers more freshness than Hoodoos! The service unfortunately sucks too. Great location, really bad restaurant! No stars if I could.

“Delicious meal and gorgeous scenery”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

We had a delicious dinner on the Hoodoos patio after a round of golf. The view from the patio was awesome. Highly recommend making a visit here when in Kamloops.

“Could Have Been So Much Better”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

We went out for our anniversary dinner last night. I wanted ribs, he wanted salmon. We checked out the menu online and, sadly, we chose Hoodoos. It had been at least two years since our last visit. Now I remember why. The wine list was outrageously expensive...twice what we pay elsewhere in town for a 1/2 litre. The Caesar Salad lacked flavour (and one crouton was actually doughy - yuck). My ribs were good but dry. They came with WAY too much very dry Basmati rice, 1 slice of carrot, 3 limp asparagus, and a bit of cauliflower. The only thing worse than cauliflower, IMHO, is cold cauliflower. More veggies! Less rice! Anything but cauliflower! My husband told me his salmon was very nice, but otherwise had the same complaints. Sorry Hoodoos...a great view doesn't make up for the rest.

PS I know the place was virtually empty except for us, but does the staff really have to line up along the bar and shout at each other? Very bad manners guys.

“Great Restaurant”
Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

Very easy to locate connected to the Pro Shop on the Sun Rivers Golf Course. Situated on Kamloops Indian Band property just off the Yellowhead highway. Wonderful decor with a nice view. Excellent semi-private table set ups. More of a restaurant than a pub or after golf location. The three of us had an excellent breakfast at a reasonable price. Service was prompt and friendly. This was my second visit and I will return.
