Stopped by for the first time ever around 6pm last Friday night. The decor is a caricature of a Canadian stereotype but the Canadian burger was outstanding, as were the fries. That is really what they specialize in, the burgers. Seth also helped me choose a local draft beer that was consistent with my taste in beer. Wouldn't hesitate to... More

Not impressed. There was a 30 minute wait on a Saturday night when the Grizz was playing so the wait was understandable. Sonia was our server and she was quick and attentive. Wing appetizer, good, desserts were awesome and huge. The entrees were blah. The worst of them in our party of five was my "gyro". I ate two bites... More

My husband is from Halifax Nova Scotia and was excited to see Donairs on the menu. The Donair is not like those in Nova Scotia. The sauce they make has way to much vinegar and not enough garlic. The decorations is a bit too dead animal. My husband was a bit miffed as he feels Canada is more than just... More

So my review is strongly based on the waiter we had. He was snappy, made no eye contact, never really came back and litterly threw the check at the table behind us. He didn't seem overwhelmed with tables just uninterested in being there at all. Their gravied fries were good. Everything else was ok. Read the menu first to make... More

We ate here for dinner while in Memphis. The atmosphere was great and the wall of fame was pretty awesome. We randomly pick this place to eat and it didn't disappoint. If you're up to the "challenge" which is either a 4, 6 or 12 lbs burger that is eaten in a certain time, it's on the house!!! Good luck!!... More

went here because my daughter loves poutine and pierogies. The pierogies were OK, the poutine was not very good. Service was very fast though, and the place was packed, so were were surprised. For a fast dinner for not too much money, and across the street from our hotel, it was OK.

Family of 5 stopped in based reviews from tv food maps. Had the Canadian bacon appetizer and was delicious, but definitely not the Canadian bacon Americans are used to, much better. We each had burgers of different varieties and even the kids were impressed. Topped supper off with a cookie that was great but just average dessert from anywhere. Ecclectic... More
