Our tour group stopped here for dinner on a Saturday night. WE did get seated fairly quickly but we were a bit cramed in. The burgers were good and the beer was cold, this is a river resort so the prices reflected the location not the quality of the burgers. The music was pretty loud so we were not able to talk, even the wait staff had to yell to be heard.
People go there to party drink beer and be loud so if that is what you are looking for it is a Great Spot, if you are looking for a resturant to eat at this is not it.
Burgers are all around $15.00 but the quality should be about $10.00 so you are paying for the party bar atmosphere.
The bugs were out flying at night so you had to watch your drinks and food to keep them away.

Went here with a group of friends while on a trip and we really enjoyed it! It's definitely a party atmosphere on a Saturday afternoon. The waitresses were all super friendly and took good care of us. The food was really good with a pretty good selection on the menu. Prices seemed reasonable. This place is perfect for a guys trip or for a group looking for a fun place to eat. Probably not a place to take little kids on a weekend tho.

We stopped here for lunch. There were 8 of us. Service was excellent. Setting was oasis like. We all ordered different things; western burger, pulled smoke chicken on a bun, smoked chicken sandwich, tossed salad with chicken. The fries were really crisp, and the beer really cold. Everyone commented on how good their food was. Only one wasn't thrilled about his lunch; he ordered fish and chips....said he didn't know what he was thinking...we are all from Vancouver Canada...fish and chips there are hard to beat.
