Family friendly restaurant complete with previously ripped seats, so problem with mistakes! Decent fires, OK Salisbury steak, poor Caesar salad side, pretty good and filling soup. Cosy and shabby feel. Just a bit old, which in a way suits the age of the building. Will...More

We stopped at this restaurant on our drive from Kelowna to Vancouver. The old hotel (built in 1908) was intriguing, so we decided to go in. Yes, the restaurant has a dated decor, with old ripped benches. But don’t pay too much attention to all...More

We stopped off in Merritt to find somewhere for lunch, and stumbled upon this place. The atmosphere was a bit strange, the place was mostly empty and the decor was very dated. However, the food was delicious! We both had the baron of beef dip,...More

Food portions were huge on the #3, #4 and #5! And everything was fresh, delicious and notably non-greasy! The young fellow serving us was very attentive and very polite. We took lots back to the motel and everything tasted just as good as leftovers 👍
