'bout sums it up.
We had tried to come here a while back in the summer but the place was packed. I put that in the back of my head as usually when you have to wait 45 minutes at a diner the food ain't bad. So we arrived here after we decided that Mc Donald's just wasn't gonna cut it (boy were we wrong).
Lets start, its a nice place, pretty clean besides the black dried ketchup lid and leaking vinegar on the table.
We were seated and drink orders placed. All seemed well so far. Then we ordered...
Myself I went on a limb and tried the "Xtreme Poppers" Mistake number one. I did expect some sort of frozen jalapeno popper concoction-snack, but a Costco special? Come on. I could have had a whole box for less than they charged for these. The coleslaw was alright, as was the fries. Nothing special, nothing bad. Reminded me more of what you would get at a concession stand. Not a diner.
For my fiancee, it was different. She ordered a "World Famous" one piece of halibut. The staple of fish-n-chip shops... Firstly, it arrived without tarter... This struck us as odd as it's a FISH N CHIPS shop, usually tarter is pretty free flowing...So she asked and it arrived after the airy waitress remembered on her third pass by the table. To top it off, its very upscale KRAFT tarter, nothing home made, nothing even special, just a dollop of soybean oil based crap.
Then the actual "fish" The portion was actually quite large and looked quite tasty (from my perspective) until however you cut it open and the grease starts to flow... This was by far the greasiest and bottom soggy fish I have ever seen or tasted. My fiancee is now regretting ordering it (and I'm regretting suggesting the place) as the grease is upsetting her stomach (as well mine).
As some reviewers have stated here before, 'there are too many good restaurants in Vancouver and area to waste time and money here".
Sub-par food, mediocre service, and no reason for this place to hold a "World Famous" title guarantee's that I won't be back.
