My wife, our friends and myself spent the day at Halliburton Forest before heading to Rhubarb's for dinner. Our friends had been there before but it was the first time for my wife and I. I was pleasantly surprised by the charm of the place...More

I’ve been there at least half a dozen times, and it is great most times, but not always. Last night was not so good. They were really busy and it showed in the service and food quality. My salmon was really overdone and my daughter’s...More

Less than 10 minutes north of Minden, Rhubarb is a nice place for dinner, with a varied and well done menu. Reservations are a good idea, as it always appears packed - even on weeknights in summer. We sat in the screened in porch facing...More

We dined at Rhubarb about 3-4 times during our summer vacations. It seemed to get less appealing every time. More care has gone into elaborate presentation of the food rather than taste. The portions are small and the prices are not in line with the...More

We are sorry to hear your experience was not the great experience we strive for. Our duck poutine is one of our most popular dishes and is always remarked about the very large serving size. We use a large pasta bowl and only the freshest...More

This place is packed every time I drive by it. One thing I've learned over the years is that when the locals like a place the food is usually good and a good value. Personally I felt the food/drink is over-priced but it looks like...More
