I can not explain how AMAZING Amie and Kent made our wedding reception. Epic food that our guests won’t stop talking about, amazing customer service, everything about this place was everything we could have asked for And More!! We will always come back and we...will always recommend it to everyone we know! Highly recommend and will definitely be seeing us again!More

Decent food, too bad the service was painfully slow. The young guy seated us, took our drink order (family of 4) and then brought us our drinks and took our orders. 15 minutes go by, couple of drinks are empty and he hasn't come by....He has seated two other tables, same size party or larger than ours. 25mins gone by and he has brought the other tables their drinks and hasn't come by ours. BUT HE DID MAKE EYE CONTACT WITH ME. our drinks are all empty at this point and he just decides its the greatest time to dry glasses instead of asking if we want refills. At the 35 minute mark (since our order) he has brought the meals to the other two tables! We did not have a special order. (Two elk burgers and two kids fish and chips) He brings us our meals after the other tables were served. Then we have to mention WE WOULD LIKE REFILLS on our drinks. Not like he didn't see us for 30 mins, as we were seated directly in front of the bar where he spent his sweet time drying glasses. It wasnt a busy time either (230pm) and they weren't exactly swamped. Bypass this place and find better service in Ukee.More

The food is average but our kids really liked the atmosphere. There are things for them to do while waiting for the food and it makes for a fun night out.

We stopped into this restaurant by foot as 2 couples. It was quite when we first arrived and were seated quickly. We ordered 2 orders of chicken wings, poutine and the fudge brownie / cheesecake. Service was good until they wanted to slow down our...drink orders. They said we are drinking too fast. We explained we were walking as well as ordering food. Never have we ever been to a restaurant where they held back our alcoholic beverages because they thought we were drinking them too fast. With that, we decided to leave. It’s a neat place to hang with kids. Food was good. However, we won’t be back due to their questionable way of us drinking .More

So much fun going back to the past but the food was awesome. Well done to the chef I had shrimp tacos so good . We also did a little bowling.

Food was blah...deep fried flavorless chicken wings. Greasy Wonton soup and a burger that was slapped together. I will say the fries were good. Forgot my beer till 2/3 of the way through the meal...had to remind the server. Only place open after 9pm...so couldn't...walk out. Okay in a pinch...feels like a local hangout with an Arcade and a Bowling alley.More

We waited for an hour and no food. Someone came and checked and they said it would be up next. Then the manager came 20 minutes later and said no bill was submitted and they will start our food now. Sucked because we had young...kids with us and a meal that was supposed to roughly be served around 7pm ended up being served just before 9pm.More

This is a moderately priced diner/pub with good service. We had the house seafood chowder and a fish taco wrap!. Typical pub atmosphere but no loud beating music at the time of our visit just after 1 pm. If you are looking for a good...portion and well cooked food, this is a good place to visit.More

We originally tried to eat at another restaurant but it was closed. A lovely local lady recommended Howlers. We headed there and were very glad we did. The food and service were excellent. The whole place has such a great vibe. We will definitely eat...there again the next time we visit and highly recommend.More

Excellent food and service at best price in town. Family friendly. Best clam chowder I ever had. Billiards and darts while you’re waiting.
