Another great meal prepared by Julie. I had the beef filet - cooked perfectly medium-rare, a wonderful gorgonzola sauce over it, with a generous portion of veggies and potatoes. My husband had the home made 7-layer German Chocolate Cake for dessert - perfect and not too sweet. One of our favourite restaurants in Rossland. Call ahead for reservations, even if... More

Quaint little restaurant in a historic town. Service was friendly, the food was awesome and reasonably priced. The menu was small but the food made up for it I am not sure you could go wrong with anything. Food is home cooked and delicious. I personally had a small caesar after deliberating over the large the small was plenty came... More

The food was delicious, right from salad through to dessert. Quality ingredients, not bad service, but definately had worse. The owner clearly puts care into what she makes, I just would have liked to see her smile once in awhile. Just seemed stressed. Definately coming back though, she did a great job.

Had a yummy Brie and prosciutto stuffed chicken breast with fresh veggies and potatoes. My daughter had halibut fish and chips that were very good. Side salad was large with a variety of greens and curly beet strips. Loved this place!

Set in an old gas station (hence the name) sits an excellent restaurant. We were told by a local bartender if you want a good steak or fresh seafood The Garage is the place. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and seafood app was very good. The server working that night was very good even though she could have used... More

This place has a lot of potential but is very poorly managed. Everything that we wanted to order, was already sold out! I understand this is a smaller restaurant, in a small town, but it was still a little disappointing to see how few items from the menu were available.

I’m never going to eat here again. I’ve given this restaurant a number of chances and I’ve decided that it’s just not worth it. The food is usually pretty good. I don’t eat a lot of steak but I understand that it is their specialty so if you’ve got a big craving for steak, it might be worth a chance.... More

They were not welcoming to friends and I. Some guy told us to get jobs and just not somewhere I'll spend my money.

This is an excellent restaurant. The food is always creative, imaginative and nutritious. There are always lots of vegetables with the main course and the staff are very friendly and efficient.
