Great place for some live music, a few beers and the Shrimp, cheese and bacon appetizer is outstanding. Frank is a personable host and always greets his guests.

Portions are huge. Staff friendly. Canadian owned I believe. Go before 7 or you could be waiting a bit. Tortilla soup was amazeballs.

Hey Frank! We visited your restaurant a year ago, and had a great time! You had a lot of Saskatchewan Roughrider banners. Any chance you'd put up a winnipeg blue bomber flag if I brought you one? See you in 3 weeks!! GO BLUE!!!

This restaurant has excellent food and service. It has huge screen tv's for any game that you want to watch or just tv while you dine. It's also a great place to just have a drink with friends after the beach. My only complaint would be the manager there, she is very rude and mean to her employees in front of the customers. The food, servers are great and the service is A++.
