We are new to the area. Went for fish and chips. Very dissatisfied. The fish was all batter. Less than an ounce of actual fish. We paid $12 for frozen french fries. Service was good though.

Have enjoyed many events and family birthdays at the Element. They provide an excellent food menu, great alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks and from time to time special entertainment is offered.

This used to be a an upper end food service restaurant ...Menu has changed to more Pub Style Food? Now leans more to hamburgers & poutines etc. No steak or prime rib except Fridays.Limited food items (preheated ?) Totally surprised at the changes.
