service is usually slow, prices are reasonable, staff is friendly. If there is a problem, they are quick to remedy it. Food always hot.

I appreciate the healthy options at the back of the menu. What I really don't like about this place is the entrance. It's horrible! You walk in and there's no warm place for you to sit or stand. You are constantly in the way of the waiters while waiting for a table. The worst entrance for a restaurant I have ever seen. Makes you feel a bit claustrophobic.

Waiter forgot to put in the order never returned to check on us! Small town restaurants need to have good service to survive and this one seems like it'll be out of business soon...

Go to Shoeless Joes around the corner.

We stopped in for a light supper and a few drinks the other evening and were pleasantly surprised. The décor inside is nice and there is a glass partition between bar and dining areas. We opted for the bar side. We ordered a drink and I noticed something on the floor near our table. It turned out to be peanut shells. I was pleasantly surprised to see this as it almost extinct in Ontario. We do see it more on the U.S. and it is a nice touch in a bar. The food and service were both excellent and the cost was in line or below other "roadhouse" style restaurants. We will definitely return in the future.

We showed up, table for 3. Warned that it was a 25 min wait, no problem with that, it was Saturday night and the place has only been open a month.

40 minutes go by, and though tables were cleared and set, we were at the top of the list after 20 minutes, and yet we were still standing. After 15 minutes of seeing these tables empty, an inquiry informed us that they were reserved.

More waiting. After 50 minutes, get the worst table in the place. At least we could sit now. The waitress was prompt and pleasant, but the food took another 45 minutes even though we ordered in the first 5 minutes.

Manager came by, apologized, and told us that he'd take 50% off for the inconvenience.

Bill comes, guess we got downgraded to 25% off. Good follow through.

In all, for this type of place, the meal should have taken an hour. Instead, it was 2.5 hours before we escaped.

Those reserved tables? They stayed empty for 50 min, 75 min, and 80 min respectively.

Great first impression.

Oh yeah, the food. The menu was interesting, the meal decent. Price in line with what you'd expect for a place of this type.


Overall? Unlikely to return, or recommend the place. Unlike most of my reviews, this is a local place to me.

Fail.
