Service is slow with a snappy attitude. Took over 25 minutes to just get our drink order taken it was 35 minutes before we had our drinks at the table. water and coffee refills were impossible to get. A second beer was never offered. The food is different every time. The sauces always change. The fries are served in a metal container that make them soggy instead of crispy. The nachos have no toppings not even an ounce of cheese on an entire plate of nachos and less than an ounce of tomatoes, onions , and black olives I wish I would have taken a picture. The food is never the same twice. Wish other was consistent. The location on the river is beautiful.

This was our third time coming for dinner and I was extremely upset with the food this time. The truck tacos were wayyyyy to spicy (which it doesn’t state that on the menu) and the French onion soup tasted like it was watered down. I must say the live music and the service was on point tho!

We were looking forward to turkey dinner as advertised for US thanksgiving. We were there for Cdn thanksgiving and enjoyed the turkey dinner. It was not at all the same the second time. The turkey was not a roast turkey! It was a commercial processed type of turkey breast - salty. The stuffing was surprisingly spicy. Pumpkin pie was tasty but unless I'm eating ice cream or creme brûlée, I would appreciate a fork rather then a spoon to eat my dessert.

We have had several visits. with no improvement. Staff are slow to greet you at table, slow to get you drinks, even slower to take order. appts. were served with the meal. Plates were hot, but the food was cold, how is that possible? Staff do not come back until food is almost gone before asking how it is. Refills on drinks had to be requested twice before we got them. Had to ask for take out containers twice, food plates were not cleared until after the dessert came.
These are all standard food service does that were not done. Kitchen is slow too.
Also, my children wanted chocolate milk. There was none. However they offered white. Then our dessert was served with chocolate sauce. What it the difference? Chocolate sauce and white milk is chocolate milk. Really!?

I enjoyed my meal and so did my two guests. The food was tasty, hot and we did not feel rushed to leave. On your feedback menu you had a graham crust with key lime topping, with whip cream and seasonal berries in a jar. I never eat dessert when I go out but I made an exception to this rule the other night. It was light, very tasty and I hope you add it to your permanent menu. I am tempted to have it again.

Your weekend brunch menu has never been a disappointment. Also the member breakfast on Thursdays are always great. Unfortunately, lunch and dinner has never been a good experience for us. Your menu doesn't carry some popular items and you falsely advertise Caesar salad. It tastes nothing like a normal Caesar salad. I'm also unable to have a regular green salad with a choice of dressings. Unfortunately I would not be recommending anyone eat there other than the weekend brunch.

Waitress brought out wrong appetizer. The correct appetizer arrived with the meal. The wrong appetizer was sent back to the kitchen and was served a while later as it was ordered as the main course not an app. One the meals was spaghetti and meatballs and it was burnt. Waitress made sure our drinks were never empty.

Horribly Run Restaurant. Terrible service. Mediocre food at best. 2/4 chicken meals had to be returned they were so dried out. 1/4 cocktails had to be returned because they were horrible.
Don’t waste your money. There’s plenty of other restaurants in the area to go and enjoy.

The view is beautiful especially at sunset. The service was good and friendly
The food was tasty and had a good choice of wines. The atmosphere was a bit loud but fun. The prices were slightly pricey for portions.
The outside patio would be a great spot on a nice evening but it was a little chilly when we went.

Disappointed - checked menu online for breakfast and made reservation for thanksgiving Monday. Table wasn’t ready when we arrived on time and had to ask for menus - then told they only have 2 breakfast specials and no menu - website did not indicate this at all or I would not have made reservation - very disappointing experience as we drove 45 min to get there and another couple drove over an hour - only had coffee and left

I give it a 2 outta 5... the staff was A+#1 very cheerful and helpful.... the 2 star loss was the food...:
portions where on the edge of adequate, turkey was nuked and downright dry n chewy, inedible in some spots... instant stuffing was almost misplaced as a thin layer under the leather turkey straps.. the vegetables and pie where delicious ;)
spent a few bucks on the slots, lost interest and cashed out.. ;)

We had a fabulous time, the atmosphere is fantastic. Best Riverside Bar in Sarnia, the view is to die for. I know service has been an issue in the past and is being worked on. Can definitely see Improvement. Was also there for Sunday brunch September 30th. And our waitress in the Horseshoe Booth was absolutely fantastic...
Can't wait to try again...

3rd time eating there and they still can't prioritize things properly. People that sat down after us were almost done their meal before we received ours. Kitchen backed up because of the patio seating was the excuse given to us for the long wait.

Love the atmostphere, but the waiting time for your meal is not good. Usually you can count on about 1 hour from time of ordering your meal to the time you receive it. Food tastes good and meal salads are very good.

I love what Gateway Casinos has created with this Casino. I never visited the former restaurant, b/c I didn't like walking through the old casino. Now, it's bright, vibrant, fun and the type of restaurant / bar that you'd find in a bigger city. The atmosphere is stellar - love how they've taken advantage of the St. Clair River and the Blue Water Bridges. It's brilliant! I've been recommending it to family and friends for the past few months. Kudos to you all!

The chicken and waffles meal was quite good. The thin crust pizza did not have a thin crust. The thick crust meatzza pizza was only OK.

The ambiance and view were good. The service was on the slow side,

Overall, the event was passable, not memorable.

I had a lovely meal with my elderly mom and we spent time in the restaurant, the casino and on the patio. I do want to say however that there was an elderly lady dining beside us who was all alone. She ordered her food around the same time that we did and we had completely finished our meal before she got hers ( a simple pasta dish) No one came to check on her or apologize for the delay. The staff are run off their feet ( every time I’ve been there) clearly the restaurant is understaffed and that is a consistent complaint I have heard from several people.

I love the Cheesy Brew soup and the Sticky Toffee desert. At this point these are my 2 favourite items on the menu. The menu needs a bit more selection.
I have been there about 6 times since it had opened and I can remember 3 times they had run out of the Cheesy Brew and once out of the Sticky Toffee.
Although I indicated that I would not recommend this restaurant to a friend, I would recommend the patio for a drink and soup and / or soup. Beautiful Patio and scenery.
Cheers!

We had dinner outside, early evening. The meal was fine until the sun was going down. As the sun dropped below the awning the temperature became to hot to sit and enjoy. This rushed us out of there. Something to remember.

Three of us went for my mom's birthday. She enjoyed her meal, a salmon burger. I had the salmon bowl and it was very bland. No seasoning on the rice and veggies, salmon was very well done. I told my server and asked for some soy sauce to give it some flavour, which she brought, but I did have to remind her. There was no offer to fix my meal. Server was pleasant, however, and busy. I would go back, just wouldn't order the same thing. The outdoor area is very nice.

Waited over 45 minutes for server. My wife never did get her water with no ice. Waited almost another 30 minutes for food. Steak was way undercooked and like rubber. The vegetables with my wife's salmon were raw. Not happy at all and definately not worth almost $50. Never again.

Match has only been open for a few weeks and hopefully will work out the kinks. It took too long to receive our food- more than 50 minutes. The staff were very friendly but there seemed to be lots of confusion with seating people. We will try it out again after some time and see if these issues are corrected.
