    One of the best steakhouses and my favourite place to dine. Strongly recommend the English cut for steaks so you can share. The Prime Rib is heavenly, Filet Mignon is second to none, and the Oyster appetizers are an absolute favourite! Birjan is my favourite server and I always ask to be in his section. He’s not only knowledgeable but offers an impeccably personalized service, remembering our orders from the previous visit. Always a joy to dine there and be served by Birjan and the rest of the team!

    We went for my husband's birthday lunch - the service was impeccable (they even included a birthday truffle on the house, which was delicious!). The wine selection was lovely and the lobster bisque was DIVINE! My wedge salad with shrimp was great, but my husband's walleye dish was disappointing. Both the walleye and the accompanying potato/bacon hash were greasy and tasted more like something you'd get from a diner, rather than a dining room. The taste was okay (not terrific) and the dish was definitely not worth what we paid for it. All in all, it was a lovely experience, but that one dish really did let us down.

    our server, Bob, was outstanding. Best i have seen in a while. Food was just ok. Not worth the prices charged. We both ordered a 7 oz Filet medium and mine was well done and my wife had only a slight reddish colour in the center. Potatoe with butter and sour cream tasted "off" to both of us. The first course came out about 4 minutes after we finished ordering, which is a little quick when spending $400 for dinner. they forgot to bring one of the sides and we had to wait for it. Other than Bob the waiter it was a letdown meal.

    This restaurant is excellent! Starting with an exquisite amuse-bouche through delicious beef tartare and perfectly cooked scallops and prawns, my meal was terrific. The finishing delight were the chocolate truffles on a plate decorated with a happy anniversary. It was a celebration and a meal to remember.

    Made the reservation for my wife’s Birthday, we were in town for a concert, which was rescheduled from April. We booked The Shore Club at least a week in advance, mentioned the Birthday in the reservation note. They sat us the first seat inside the door beside the host/hostess stand - really not an ideal location for nice Birthday meal. I asked for another table and they had one available - further inside the restaurant, to my liking. My question is why put us at the front door if you have a better seat inside the restaurant? You just checking to see if I’d take the high traffic table? Really awkward moment at the beginning of what was to be a special event meal.

    Your web page states business attire,,we dressed accordingly.However 99% of patrons were dressed in play clothes...not an enviroment for special occasions.The nickle and diming of items that should be included in the meal...like potatoes & vegetables/sauces.Although food and service was excellent...we would not return again..or recommend to others. It was more like sports bar atmosphere.

    A bit energetic sound wise when you first enter but quickly quiets down when you get further into the restaurant. The wait staff was very attentive and knowledgeable and I couldn’t say enough nice things about them. The food was cooked as requested and the portions were just right although we were to full for dessert. Would not hesitate to return.

    Over the last few years I had heard good things about the shore club. We started our evening with a cocktail and oysters which were good. Then proceeded to order a steak with sides. Our lobster tail showed up at the end of the meal. Service was not great. We had to flag the waitress at multiple occasions.

    went for an anniversary dinner. Asked for and were seated at a quiet table. Bar drinks were excellent. Waiter was efficient and knowledgeable. appetizers (calamari and crab cake) were very good. Calamari was not rubbery as you often have in other restaurants. Waiter suggestion was excellent. The halibut was perfect and the sides excellent. Coconut cream pie shared for dessert. Overall excellent.
