I've found the chicken here to be pretty good. My girlfriend really likes the fajitas. Ordering the all you can eat ribs sounds great, but it's honestly a huge mistake. The first batch of ribs that they give you always seem good, but if you go for seconds or thirds, which most people would when ordering all you can eat... More

This restaurant was just taken over by new owners and they bent over backwards for us. It was during Xmas so it was busy and a reservation was a must. The steak was fantastic and both my son and I commented on how good it was cooked. My wife had chicken which was also cooked to perfection. The service was... More

I always come to have dinner each time I am at Nanaimo, which is typical the same as other places. My daughter love the steak of sirloin with medium rare. You can drink some kind of if you like.

Don and I have recently moved here and decided one night (after unpacking for hours) to take a break and go for dinner. We arrived on a Friday night (very busy) and that was the good part. I ordered a glass of wine and Don ordered a V. Caesar (his special treat) and we ordered our dinner. I ordered the... More

Must admit, I was leery of a large chain restaurant for lunch as service seems rushed and food is always mediocre. We were very happy with our lunch and look forward to our return! POSITIVES: Amanda our server was great. Kapow shrimp were delicious, as was my husband's burger. My ceaser salad was cold and crisp and had lots of... More

Best veggie burger from any of the Montanas I've visited! Mom had a bacon cheese burger and also said it was delicious! Really wanted the mini fresh warm doughnuts but was just too full. Service was terrific and food came out hot and fast. Would definitely recommend this location!
