    The overall was satifactory. I ordered the steak sandwich with fries. The quantity of bbq sauce was overwhelming. There was so much sauce that I could not taste the steak. In the future and as a recommendation, ease off on the sauce. Thank you

    The food and service are very good there. Close proximity to the Scotiabank centre for events. It can be a little noisy and last time the food was a bit salty.
