It's an A&W, so you know what you are getting. Food was always hot and tasty, condiments (lettuce, tomato, etc.) very fresh. Staff are predominantly Filipino and are very courteous and polite. Free Wi-Fi, which is easy to use... no log-on headaches or passwords.

A typical and very well run A&W with no problems or concerns. Good for a quick burger. Had a coffee and burger until the room was ready. Staff was polite and restaurant was clean.

This place is horrible!! Lousy service, cold food. I asked for onion rings, apparently they were all out, ok give me a poutine. All out of cheese. Like really are you kidding me!?! Would not recommend going there.

Located inside the main shopping center, it was very busy and crowded. Leading to being a little noisy and slightly messy. Nothing terrible just a lot of traffic.

A really sad place, confirming all the cliches about indigenous people in the North. This is sad, because it is a minority, and most indigenous people are just wonderful, but this is a place visited a lot by tourists and it doesn't do their reputation...More

Downtown is dead outside of business hours, so just a few people there. Took awhile to get my food. They advertised WI-FI, but it didnt work. The restaurant is in the Yellowknife Inn building, where I was staying, so I connected to the hotel WI-FI.
