    Again the service was great… happy hour wine specials also great. Food came quick and hot however some of the portion sizes (pasta) was quite small for the price. But overall we were happy.

    Reserved so I would be able to get a table without a long wait. Got seated in cold patio side where few others were seated. So walk-ins get better tables than a reserve. Service from kitchen was extremely slow - ordered as soon as we were greeted and it still took 46 minutes for 2 simple meals. I talked to another couple and they were also delayed this long. Kitchen needs to improve on this.

    The Thai Peanut salad had no peanut flavour at all but it was still a good salad. My friend ordered a Caesar side salad and she couldn’t eat it all all cause of some dark sauce on the top of it. (Her husband ate it and liked it) But overall everything else was really good.

    I thought the food presentation was not up to par, had a burger with fries, came on an oversized sleep plate with nothing on 2/3 of the plate. Not what I would do at my restaurant looked cheep and tacky

    Huge kudos to the staff at matches for spending their Christmas serving their patrons. The service was super, the food was okay and the staff was remarkably friendly and courteous. Many people don't have someone to celebrate Christmas with and I'm sure this made it enjoyable for them to be around others. Thank you very much for providing this service on this very special day.

    Turkey dinner was excellent - thank you for not increasing the price because it was Christmas. So many places want to gouge their customers because it’s a special event. This was my 4th time celebrating Christmas Dinner at Match Courtenay - it is my tradition. Thank you to all the staff

    It is attached to a casino so louder than a typical sports pub. Food was surprisingly bland and not particularly fresh. Would definitely not recommend for the food or if you like Pilsner. They don’t have any, limited selection of beer choices.

    We arrived for a 5:30 pm reservation and were immediately escorted to our table. The waitress was friendly and very efficient. We tried the pitmaster bbq platter that was new on the menu and it arrived steaming hot and absolutely delicious . Half price wine night was also a bonus. This was probably the best meal we have ever had there and hope it becomes a permanent item on the menu
