“Excellent steak sandwich”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

Loved the meal I had, service left some to be desired. I was drinking water at the bar late at night and the staff seemed more interested in chatting than refilling my water.

“Tina was awesome!”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

Seven of us were booked into rooms at Days Inn and stayed 4 days. We used the restaurant twice, the night we arrived and the night we left. We would have used in between if we hadn't returned back to the hotel to late - 9:30 pm they were closing. We would have also used it for breakfast - if they had it. So we bought breakfast at The Bench instead. Otherwise food and service and food was awesome!

We would stay at the hotel again and definitely eat at Black Iron. Crews eat out a lot and tend to get a tad fussy at times looking for variety this gave us the options we were looking for. My only recommendation is a few more vegetarian and vegan options.

“FAR BETTER THAN EXPECTED”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

We stayed at the Days Inn as part of our trip through Western Canada.Our expectations were not that high for the restaurant attached but we were totally wrong. We had two great dinners -both outside on the patio in mid September.Mostly standards but well cooked.Nice selection of BC wines by the glass. Service was very good and the young server who brought around a dragon fly to show us got an extra tip, for reminding us "oldies " about the joy of the small things in life. The restaurant doesn't rely on hotel guests -I would think over 50% were outsiders. Good quality and good value -no problem to recommend.

“Great Service, Great food!”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

Came in on a busy night, had to wait for a table the lady at the front looked a bit flusterd but was very nice and was obviously working hard to get us seated. Once we were sat we recieved waters from our server without asking. She was great super helpful and friendly. Looked like everyoe that worked there was having a good time and worked well together for once it got busy we had more than just our one server there to help refill our waters and clear plates....I had the prawn alfrado pasta that was made perfectly rich and full of flavour. My husband had the rib eye it was tender and cook to his liking. All in all glad we tried it out!!! Also a great wine list!

“Terrible Food!!”
Reviewed 11 September 2013 via mobile

In a group of 6, we had steaks and they were all overcooked. Medium was well done. One person sent food back to be redone, rest of us picked at it and she was only one to receive discount. Also ordered crab cakes and they were gross. Dense, heavy fishy tasting very unpleasant. We definately will not come back.
