Recommended by a friend. Dated decor very rreminiscent of a 1980's bavarian-style restaurant. Don't let this throw you off !! We were served the BEST steak that we have had in a long, long while.

Interesting menu and presentation: really old-fashioned. Reminded me of going to a restaurant back in the 60's: salad was skimp, meal was ok but small portions. Special cocktail was the highlight: a Nanaimo-bar concoction which was great, if not a bit pricey.

We went to the bold knight with a group of us and it was pretty quiet in the restaurant. Our bill was $75 for two entrees, a coffee and a side of fries. The food was mediocre and the server seemed annoyed by us. I've...More

Delicious steak sandwich for lunch. Wife had a stir fry. The buildings is a little old like other reviews say but that didn't take away the food and service was good.
