I always read reviews to see what others think before I try a place out. The reviews are ok but no details. I love the outside and inside look it's very vintage and unique. It is what made me wanna come in. I asked what the best meals were and was given some options, I chose a burger that was suggested with pesto mayo. For my meal, the fries were similar to Swiss chalet and no issues at all. The burger I have to say, I ate a few bites and gave the rest to my husband. The mayo was really sweet or like sour I can't put my finger on what it was but, it's not good. The burger was dry and flavorless. I think for paying about $30 for a burger fries and fountain pop I expected much more. We payed $60 total for 2 burger meals. I'm okay with the price if it reflects the food and experience being great. I had no issues with your staff at all! That's why you got a 3 star. I think maybe trying a bit more flavourful in the burgers could help. I know there's a lot of seniors eating there with different taste buds (typically less spice, and flavour..not all but, most at the 65 and over age), but I'd love to support local and see you grow. Feedback thats honest would help. I wouldn't go back or recommend this place unless there were some flavour in the food. Respectfully.

We each had the daily special combo fried chicken and BBQ ribs. The service was excellent and all but the ribs were great. The ribs were a tad dry, but sauce and the tender parts were quite tasty. Great experience overall as always.

The seafood chowder and fish and chips were very good and hot. Great service. Clean restaurant. Will return.

Ordered. Waited 40 minutes while tables around us who came later were served. Order lost? Our waitress never checked on us and we never got our food. Left after the 40 minutes after hailing a different waitress to let her know. :(

Very sad to have to give this place such a low rating, given the very cool 50's decor and atmosphere. I had the Falcon burger and it was dry BEYOND dry, and my side was incorrect(this was promptly fixed). After I told the server I was not able to eat what I was served, as the rest of the party of 9 I was with had all their dishes cleared away after mains and desserts, all of my dirty plates and empties were left in front of me for the entire service, even after the desserts were cleared from the rest of the entire party. I had to get up from the table and ask my plates be cleared and even then the server wouldn't even look at me, like I had slighted her personally and only took one of my dirty plates. An extremely disappointing visit and a very uncomfortable meal for me. Left hungry and very unhappy.

Food was pretty good, but certain items on the menu are much smaller and less filling than they should be for the high prices.
