“Great service but only mediocre food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

We had high hopes but this was not the best dinner. Not horrible but not the best in town and I hate to be the negative review!

“Still our favourite place! :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2012

Back again for Jasper in January and once again this place exceeded our expectations! Prim Rib was as good as always, pasta was fresh and the greek salad amazing! In the morning before getting up to the hill we had the breakfast. The french toast... speechless what do they put in it! So great. I can't believe how large the buffet is. Hash browns, eggs, eggs benny (my fav)! The list goes on it was all so great and the kids loved it as usual. For $10 dollars you can't miss the breakfast, you can't beat that price for all that food. Thanks again Tonquin for another great experience. You will be seeing us again this summer.

“Dont eat the breakfast, overpriced food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2012

Had the breakfast, just terrible, the eggs taste like the ones that come out of a carton and are slimy. The steak was good there but expensive for the small portions you get, along with the drinks. Caesar salad was gross, actually had to give it back after one bite and they still charged us for it. Waitresses are good but over all I would not go back here, there are much better places to eat.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2012

The food was great along with the service. Wife had the fish it was okay but what do expect from a steak house. Greek salad is giant though they add alot of romaine.
