This used to be my favorite restaurant in Selkirk but boy has it gone down hill. the burgers are not good taste like freezer burnt meet, The fries were over cooked small like they came from the bottom of a bag and really hard, Could...not even give them to my one year old grandbabies, The wrap we ordered was soggy and tasteless. so disappointed. Will not be going back. not that much of a big deal we are only one family that will not eat there anymore.More

Food is consistently good with large portions. The staff is also very friendly, which makes you want to keep coming back!

In the past I've always got great food at Rosie's, today not so ! Bacon near raw, toast must have been waved over toaster, was almost toasted... flies were at an abundance ... they ate as much as I did.... not a place for me...again...More

Used to be a great restaurant until the new management took over. Rude waitress, flies everywhere, a lot of menu items not available, burned food,...no clue about customer service.

I found the service to be very prompt and accommodating and our server had a wonderful attitude. The food was excellent and well presented. I felt that I received value for my dollar. Would definitely visit again.

March 28, 2023...Drove out to Selkirk from Winnipeg, along River Road...beautiful drive! Arrived at Roxie's about 5:45 p.m. for Sunday dinner. Dining rooms were full and bustling...we were seated within 3 minutes in the main dining room. The Decor - very clean room with tables,...chairs, carpet and paint all in good repair with lots of room for about 16 tables. Reception staff, waitress (Kalie B) and server were all very friendly and personable...despite it being very busy and hot. The food! As we knew it would be delicious with large portions. I had the Ukrainian Feast and spouse had the Thai Chicken Crunchy Salad. Served relatively quickly given the busy nature of the cafe. The price - at $43.65 with beverages and taxes it was excellent value for this dinner. Two minor criticisms: First, understaffed for the time of day and mealtime crowd...we heard some grumbling from customers and waitress apologized (unnecessarily in my mind) to every table about having to work the room alone. Come on management, scheduling is your responsibility and you aren't doing your business any favors based on what I heard other customers saying. Second, it was 31 degrees outside and warmer in the restaurant...there was one fan and one portable air conditioner that was not blowing cold air at all...hard on staff and customers. Again, nice try but not good enough. All-in-all, we enjoyed the drive out, the service and dinner - drove back into the city along Henderson Highway...nice road trip of about 4 hours. Will gladly return again if they'll have us.More

We have not been here for a year or two. They used to have good breakfast not anymore and costly for basic breakfast. We certainly would not go back here for breakfast. Cheap margarine smeared all over cold toast. Bacon so hard it was awful.

We went out for dinner with another couple and waited 20 minutes for a table at Roxi's. The food was okay at best and was large portions on the plate. The service was poor but mostly because there was very little staff on during the...dinner time and not sure if this is the norm. The staff tried hard but couldn't overcome the needs of the customers with the staff on shift. The meal was delivered to 3 of us at once and the 4th meal came a few minutes later. Good meal but nothing out of the ordinary and just large portions that none of us could finish. Would try again but would not recommend if the same service and food was presented.More

Very friendly staff and solid breakfast. In an area of Selkirk that is part of a revitalization effort and Roxie’s is right in the middle. Will definitely come back.

For 15 years our family has picked up & dined in, this is the first time ever that all four of us were not pleased. Burger not fully cooked, pizza toppings cut in half, and it was just not cooked or tasted the same. Now...I think I know why…..and I’m shocked I had no idea there was new owners and I’m dying now! This was the only restaurant we could count on and now it’s gone as of course they think they know better & have already started to make changes, I mean cooks prepare different but being cheap on portions you cannot do that here, & this place made it because of return customers & word of mouth….well I will give it one more try, but until then I’m not sending anyone there like used to.More

There are new owners here and apparently that aren't trying hard enough to keep Roxie's as it was. Deserts the last two times have been almost empty, this never happened before. The roast beef changed to some strange flavored beef, completely different from what it...was before, they did tell us this but it wasn't pleasant. Please, please DO NOT change things, they were very good as they were. This happened to another restaurant in Selkirk and they ended up closing. Will try again, but hopefully new management will listen ! We travel from Winnipeg to Selkirk just for your restaurant because there are so few decent places in the big city.More

I do like to try the local /non-chain restaurants - especially those with high rating like. All that I ask is for good service and good quality food at a reasonable price that is reflective of the menu. In this case, I stopped in for...some lunch but opted for breakfast (a nice option after noon) and ordered the 'meat lovers' bowl. The issue I have is the 'meat' component of the bowl was completely underwhelming. It should have been called the potato lovers bowl as at least half of it was potato. The meat consisted of some pieces of low-end breakfast sausage (maybe 1 piece, maybe); with a sprinkling of bacon and ham. No where near being what you might expect for 'meat lovers'. Come on guys - deliver what you advertise. On the positive - the server was very nice and attentive.More

Dog tired from an uber-hot day at the cottage, looking for a good dinner that we didn't have to cook in the unairconditioned kitchen, we heard from friends that Roxi's was a good place to dine (not just eat). Boy were they right! We arrived...at 7:30 half expecting to be told dinner service was near over but instead Jen herded us to a huge booth, mask in place. The special was a full rack of ribs which sounded just fine to me and my wife ordered the pot roast off the menu. It took a while for our order due to the fact that they cooked the ribs to order!!! I have a huge aversion to the flavor of twice cooked pork so I was a little apprehensive when the generous-to-overflowing platter arrived, heaped with golden fries done to a turn. My wife's pot roast was accompanied by a too-large baked potato and gravy. We tucked in and were thoroughly satisfied with the meal and Jen's excellent /friendly service. Pretty soon, the tables began to fill up so we were guessing this was a spot favored by late diners. If you are in Selkirk, be sure and stop in. The desserts looked amazing but we were too stuffed to try any. Price was affordable and a good value.More

This is a combo place dining room one side and bar the other side. We were there on a Saturday evening. The diningnroom was full so we chose the bar side to eat in. The bar is definitely a throw back to 1980. Our server...was awesome. The place was full. Let me talk about the food. 2 people had ribs. They said they were good, just a bit heavy on the sauce. Two people had wraps. And they are awesome. The fries are the best in the province. Portion size is huge. Very good value for your money. Now lets talk about the atmosphere. Carpets are pretty dirty. Orange level Covid protocol was to be in effect in selkirk. Which means mask wearing for everyone. So a lot of the guests in the bar where ignoring this. Walking around with a mask around the neck. Taking their drinks from table to table to visit with people. Alot of hugging of people from different tables. This is a small town, so it appears that alot of people know each other. One guy lighting his cigarette in the bar before going outside. I get it must be tough for the staff to inforce the laws because these all seem like local people. And these people pay the bills. i gave 4 stars because the food was great, and our server was great. I will not be returning until covid19 is over. i just cant risk it. So unfortunately it might be a while.More
