A group of us went here for dinner. The service was quick, friendly and professional. The food was very good and everyone in our party enjoyed their meal. I would recommend going to try this place out when in Owen Sound!

Our waitress...I don't remember her name but she was fantastic and the food was superb. We had the Shorty Platter and Nachos followed by steaks and different seafoodie things. We had a ton of food! I would definitely recommend this place.

If you like grilled and bbq-ed food , this is the spot to go if you are down town . nothing better than a steak diner with a cold beer. the prices are good for what you get .
