Located on Kenmount Road in the old Swiss Chalet Building. Went there for lunch with family and we found the food, the service and atmosphere great! Music was enjoyable also. Open, airy and bright. Nice.

Always liked to visit here for the fabulous food. Last few times I visited, I was really disappointed as the menu items I order was discontinued. The service was crappy and the staff didn't give a f^^k. I will not be back.

Ate here in early December with another couple. Food was really good as usual. We have never had a bad meal at PB in 20 yrs. always consistent quality. The downtown location was a regular place for us. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone!
