Really poor service! Was sitting for 15 minutes before we even got water. Waitress was rude, menu was soooo poor, left after 25 min with no order taken & just water on the table & a snarl from server. Sad!! Used to love the place, will never go back. :(
Ordered chicken with rice veggies. Was very cold served to us . sent it back was the same. Chicken tasted very dry unable to eat it. I orderd the red snapper fish and chips was so greasey that unable to eat it. Was also was cold french fries. Cost was $45.00
Not recommended place.
Kodiaks is a very different restaurant. It operates as a fine dining room type restaurant; however it really is the demonstration lab for the food preparation students at the college. In order to learn how to work in the food industry the students actually run a restaurant under the supervision of their instructor. They prepare the menu, cook, serve and do everything else needed.
Because of the academic nature of the situation, Kodiaks is only open for part of the year. In November is is open from 11:30 til 1:30 for lunch. Then, from mid-January til the first week in February and again at the end of February through most of March, dinner is served.
We went on their opening day this fall. We had a fine lunch. We started with warm fresh bread and a selction of home made herbed butters. The cream of chicken soup had lots of chicken meat and was very tasty. We each had a different sandwich and they were both delicious.
The desserts were fancy and innovative. We enjoyed a relaxed and inexpensive meal at Kodiaks and would recommend it as a good place to go.
Recently I have tried eating at Esther's twice, as bad as dinner was, breakfast today was even worse. Its not hard to make a decent breakfast, but they ruined a simple meal even. Cold pancakes, icky bacon, cold eggs, and the butter was even rock hard. The place is also outdated, and dingy looking. Staff was okay, but not stellar either. I would give food 1 out of 10, service 4 out of 10. On my list of places to avoid from now on.
These "home-made" burgers are made of local beef from Little Valley Farms with freshly baked bread. I've been 3 times (twice with a companion and once by myself) and have ordered the A&A signature burger, the SBD (single but delicious) burger, garden salad, fries (w/ coney sauce), and onion rings. While everything was delicious, I highly recommend the A&A burger with everything on it on whole-wheat bread. However, I would only recommend that if you have someone to share it with because it's HUGE. The fries are also delicious and made in house. I personally wasn't the biggest fan of the coney sauce, but I've never had coney sauce anywhere else before, so I don't know how it's suppose to taste like.
The one downfall is that the burgers don't come with any sides, and you need to order them separately.
These burgers are 80 times better than Fatburger (and I've been to Fatburger 3 times, ordering different types of burgers each time). Now, only if A&A does house-made onion rings!
Having recently moved from the lower mainland to Prince George, I am very happy that there's Pho U & Me here. I've been to the restaurant 3 times and have ordered the house special beef noodle (w/ everything), the spring rolls every time due to its deliciousness. The broth does not taste like it is made with msg, which the cheerful hostess/ waitress confirmed, and even though I drink all the broth every time, I do not feel like I am dying from thirst a few hours later (which is usually the case with most pho soups).
When I went tonight, my order of pho came out within 5 mins and approx. 5 mins after that, the cook came out and asked whether I wanted more broth, which has NEVER happened in the countless times I've eaten in a vietnamese restaurant. The service is excellent, and the waitress is always happy to give you more water, napkins, etc.
I really hope this little gem in Prince George succeeds!
Quiet little restaurant with good service. The menu is nicely sized, small enough to not be indecisive, but large enough to have choice.
I opted for the seafood curry. Not spicy for spice lovers, but a little spicy for those with little resistance (but tasted so good I kept eating)
Good portion size, and good prices.
Being that I work just around the corner from 'The Cork', it comes as a no brainer to have post work beer here. Upon entering, you might think "I'm not too comfortable just chillin' out in here", but you are soon convinced that the atmosphere is rather comfortable as opposed to intimidating.
The first time I decided to have a post work beer and vent session with a friend, I felt bad simply sitting around just for a beer, but the server (Deanna, whom I had never met before) was so welcoming that, I kid you not, I end up there every wednesday after work simply because I know she will be there.
Thanks for always allowing me to drown my day despite the fact that I'm sure you would rather have a higher check average. It's definately appreciated and doesn't go unnoticed!!!
