We stopped in for dinner (4 ladies) and ordered the Memphis platter. Excellent price for the quality and quantity of food received. Great drink selection. We also ordered the deep fried pickles which were delightful - delicious homemade dipping sauce. Will be back.

Casual, friendly atmosphere with a good selection of dinner choices. Ribs were terrific, wife's chicken was also very good. Good sized portions and craft beer on tap. Will be back for sure.

Small restaurant in downtown Kelowna. Portions are big so recommend that you just order the sandwich or the main meal but you may need a dogie bag.

Thank you for your question. We do not use nuts other than walnuts on site - no peanuts whatsoever. However, we do use bread from a bakery that is NOT nut-free and cannot guarantee that there will not be traces of peanuts... More

Interior Health regulations do not allow dogs on patios. Despite this, we can sometimes accommodate if no one else is out there! Best to call us directly to inquire.
