service was awful, slow & barely any tables. Seems like they were more focused talking to the people at the bar. Kept forgetting things like napkins

We dined in an outdoor dome on New Year's Day.
It was a unique experience. One where we felt totally comfortable in these time of Covid, relaxing and eating in our little bubble.
For appetizers we tried the Coconut Shrimp Tempura and Cause Calamari.
For dinner we had Pistachio Dijon Salmon, Mexcellent Burger, Engagement Burger, Pear & Brie Ciabatta, and an "I need a Doctor" Doctor Pepper" beef rib.
We would definitely recommend all of them .
Service was great, food was tasty.

We had Sandy as our server and we loved her! We hope to have her again :)

We had the Buffalo chicken dip and Big Mac tacos (as suggested by the wonderful Sandy) and all of it was delicious!

I hope to be back soon!

Our waitress Hailey was PHENOMENAL! She went above and beyond and met all our expectations and then some. She was just as attentive bring water as she was with food/drinks. She asked us if there were specific songs we wanted to hear and then shared with the DJ on our behalf. She acknowledged us throughout the evening not only at our table but when walking to the washroom etc… From a table of ladies who have all worked in the hospitality business at one point or another I can confidently say she was the BEST any of us have experienced in many years. So many people only share negative feedback in reviews, so we felt it was important that this lovely girl receive the positive recognition she deserves.

Amazing food. Waiter was super nice but extremely slow. We arrived at 630 and were there for 3 hours because we had to wait about half hour before he would visit our table. Not sure if it was due to a staff shortage because there seemed to be a lot of staff but they were standing at the bar talking instead.

Arrived for first time with reservations. Checked vaccination status, which is very good to see. Ordered from a small menu. Had a mexellent burger, waffle fries and coconut shrimp. Food was decent, with good flavors. Drinking water and had a pitcher brought to the table. Poured a glass and noticed what appeared to be either paper or slime swirling. Showed the waitress, hmmm that's odd is all she said. Then proceeded to wait 20 minutes for the check.
Will not be back specifically for the contaminated water, combined with the peak of the kitchen...not good. Wasn't surprised when we both had a bad stomach this morning. Avoid at all cost. For similar price point you can eat at Milestones across the street for a good dining experience!!

Food was cold, but the taste was good overall. Cute outside domes for outside eating, however they are very poorly heated and shouldn’t be classified as such. Small portable heater used to try to warm up an entire dome outside, no warmth felt , kept jackets on.

The food and service were great, wasn’t sure if there was vodka in my drink, I couldn’t taste it. The restaurant was freezing, The servers were constantly opening doors right in the dining room to go outside to serve people in the dorms. We had to move tables but it didn’t make a difference, there was people eating with their parkas on.

Not very special. Our quesadillas were burnt. I would recommend going to the collins brewhouse instead for a dome experience. The domes were heated but there wasn't any music or anything that could be heard. It was dead silence. The staff were extremely friendly and nice but the food was below satisfactory for the price.

Service was lacking, waited a long time to order, a long time to finally aak/get a drink refill, waited a long time for the bill & then forever to pay.
We went for lunch on a Tuesday at 11:30am. We were the only table upon arrival so not sure why we were made to wait so long for every thing. We’ve also both worked in hospitality for years & years, so are very understanding & forgiving of most things.
I won’t be back & I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant to others.

Maybe add something around your patio doors to not let all the cold air in

The table was dirty. The waitress did move us when we asked for it to be cleaned. Asked for med rare steak and it came well done. Thought the prices were too high for the food received. Made reservation as a birthday and no acknowledgement of it. I will not be back.

Awesome food, straight up the best nachos mans ever experienced. Burger was gnarly in a fantastic way. Smoking martinis were kinda cap, but the white freezie one was delicious. They were only cap cause mans didn’t know how mans made smoke come out. Seriously though, fantastic place will be going back fo sho.

Ordered big daddy nacho’s with chicken.
Honestly there were hardly any chicken in the nachos and they charged $6 extra for the chicken.

Totally waste of money

It appeared there was only one server for the whole restaurant( it was pretty slow at this time). Was seated at 6, didn’t get waited on until 645 and food came out at 730. We had a 2 year Old with us who was starving as we did not expect to wait such a long time for food or service (thank goodness for purse snacks). The waiter was lovely but was clearly working his tail off to try to accommodate the amount of patrons. I was here a couple weeks prior and this was definitely not the experience I had then. It was a shame because we came for a Birthday dinner and my family left with no hopes of returning.
