We've read some of great reviews about this restaurant - so on our mini vacation, we made a point of driving out from Victoria to Langford to try it out. It's a bit hard to find, and access to the street is limited. Anyway, after a couple of detours we found it. Parking lot was busy, so we took that to be a good sign. The restaurant was about 2/3 full but we were seated immediately, which was great since LittleMao was hungry and making noise. The waitress came within a couple of minutes and mentioned that the kitchen was running behind. I asked how behind and she replied 10 - 15 minutes. We ordered the sampler plate (pulled pork, pork ribs, beef ribs and three sides: home cut fries, mac and cheese and cornbread) and an ice tea. The waitress came back with some crayons to keep LittleMao amused. That was the last we saw of her. Tables beside us, were complaining on how long their food was taking. I tried to get the waitresses attention, but to no avail. We contemplated leaving, but since it took 20 minutes to drive out.. I was lucky I had some baby cookies to keep LittleMao somewhat placated for a while. Our food finally arrived 45 MINUTES later. When I asked, why the excessive wait, I didnt get a sincere explanation but more of a rant - "someone didnt show up in the kitchen, we've got new staff on the floor, so anyway, here's your food", which kind of surprised us. But on to the food, the beef ribs were really good, probably one of the best we've had. The pulled pork was a bit dry and the pork ribs were meaty but overdone. The sides were okay, but LittleMao really didnt care - she was really hungry. The waitress never came back to ask how our meal was, and at the end, I finally had to ask another waitress to get our bill.. it arrived so fast, that I thought we were in a time warp. For $55, I dont think it our meal was worth it. But again the service lagged, we ended up going to the till and paying our own bill. Did I bother complaining or asking to speak to the manager? No, because I most likely will never go to this restaurant again but I knew I'd take the time to comment on this website. Buyer beware!
