The Holy Cow appetizer is fantastic. I would greatly suggest it. The Meatloaf was good as well.
The waiter we had was condescending and not friendly at all. I noticed the other waiter seemed completely the opposite. I would not return unless I knew I would have a different waiter.

My "go-to" place in Jasper - simple, unassuming restaurant with basic layout and decor.
Limited menu but but with several knock-your-socks off dishes. Don't like the sound of meatloaf? - well, think again! Meatloaf here is raised to an altogether different level. Good beer offering from the local brewery
Service is friendly and efficient - what more can I say!

Had the Salmon and wife had the pad thai. The food was great, but sides and sauces were lacking.
Salmon on a bed of rice with thick sliced carrots and a steamed baby bok choi? Could be better with the pairing.

The fish was well seasoned, the pad thai had an sweet flavor.

But it just felt like something was missing in its presentation and its possible flavour profile.

Drinks were amazing though, and your service and staff....amazing individuals.

Would like to come again, but for drinks and appys....not for main large plates.

Could of used more flavour on both of our entrees. Fresh food Though. I had the curry salmon with just a drizzle of sauce.
Noodle and veg bowl were fresh also but not any spice for the Korean bowl.
Not sure if it’s the Covid time as we’ve been there a few times before.
Overall we’d say it was OK.

Hi Krissy, thanks for your feedback. We have had some supply chain issues this year and have had to adjust on the fly. I know it's been a challenge for a lot of restaurants.

Took a while to be seated and served. Didn’t finish my meal as it didn’t taste fresh, even the side salad had no flavour. Ate elsewhere after we left.

Long weekends tend to be busier than most days. All of our food is prepared fresh and in house. These are challenging times for restaurants with supply chain issues, staff feeling vulnerable, and uncooperative landlords. Hopefully we can all stay safe and be kind.

We went here for supper. Food was good, service was alright. We were waited on promptly and effeciently but server didnt have much for personality. I do think charging $5.99 for a can of pop is also pretty steep. Overall was an alright experience.
