My wife and I originally frequented this location approx 5 years ago and it became our weekly spot being just 10 minutes from home. There must have been a change in kitchen staff back then which was reflected in the quality of food and a change in their menu. We stopped going to the restaurant as a result. In December... More

We started going here for a quick bite/lunch.... The Daily Double seems to be a regular fave .... Sandwiches are big and soups are typically very good.... too filling but I seem to eat it all! Servers are always very friendly, cordial, polite and seem pretty happy. Last visit it was way too busy, restaurant was full..... quickly they recognized... More

This hidden gem is consistently great! A different atmosphere, if you like horses this is the place for you. Horse racing/betting TV's.... and tvs with remotes at each table so you can watch your own sporting event. It's not loud by any means..... the staff are always professional and very friendly. The food is fantastic, home made soups daily, and... More

Great for a quick bite or a party, the food is great and the staff very friendly and accommodating.

We just had my dad's 83rd birthday party there last night. There were 20 of us and everybody's food was great. The service was awesome and the waitresses went out of their way to make it special for my dad. We will defiantly be going back again soon.

We shared the Deviance Salad. It sounded like a good chewy salad from the menu with chick peas, corn, and brown rice added to what would otherwise be a green salad. There was precious little of this stuff added so it was essentially a green salad with hunt and peck for the goodies. The brown rice turned out to be... More

We had a nice meal on the patio on Canada Day. The restaurant is right on the Canada US border. You take the last exit before the crossing to the US. The theme of the restaurant is very much horse racing and they have many posters inside the restaurant of various horse races and each table has a screen that... More
