Good food, friendly staff, great fun. Enjoyed the tour of the old building. Great live band and party atmosphere. Unfortunately it is a long way out of town and the double expensive tax fare can make it a very expensive night. Perhaps a shuttle bus would be a good idea for the restaurant to consider.

Hi, Thank you for your kind words. Joey is always having a blast playing the rock & roll classics. It's like his voice is made for this kind of music. The owner will be pleased to hear your comment on the steak because she cares a lot about the quality of the meat we serve. See you next time !... More

Expect to be one of the few non-French speaking people but sharing a table, eating great food, touring the hidden bootlegger house and having the best laugh with dancing ... And other events that I wouldn't tell you in advance because it would... More

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. With the Canadian dollar currently going down, we're starting to have a lot more non-French speaking people from other countries, so maybe next time you'll have more people to talk to in English ! :) More

We went there on a rainy day, and apparently, we took them by surprise! It was unfortunately understaffed for the amount of people who showed up.
