Way better than the 89 Inn is where i have to start.
If you want frozen food and watered down coffee go there.
Dockers isn't perfect either but it's the best of it's kind on Fraser anyways.
I'm not sure what the other reviewer ordered because i have never recieved a large portion. Not that i care mind you. Less out food is always good right?
Burger is ok and the fish and chips aren't frozen.
Coffee is good. Somebody wants it stronger all you have to do is ask the man and he will do it for you. I seen this happen in person.
Reason it isn't strong enough to bulge your eyes is that the owner actually listens to most of his customers and that's what they prefer he says.
I found the lady to be rather nice as well.
The only thing i could see anyone finding wrong with her is that she isn't a 20 year old blonde.

89 Inn was never anything special but when i heard they had underwent some major renovations i thought i would give them the benefit of the doubt and give 'em a try. The owners were new as well so this meant the coffee was probably fresher and not filled with water from time to time to try and stretch one pot into 5.
I ordered the fish and chips which were fairly priced at $8.25.
I was expecting something on the lines of a White Spot or even Dockers restaurant. (Dockers is on Fraser as well across from Buy Low Foods)
What i got was 4 tiny frozen fish things. Captain Highliner!!!! Well, no name brand version most likely.
It's hilarious. The coffee was weak, the food still frozen.
89 Inn is consistent that's for sure.
The previous owners taught the new ones well.
God love the regulars who still march in there for frozen food, sushi that's not even fresh and a host of other things.
Just a matter of time before it's sold again and i fear this time there won't be any western food on the menu.
There's just nowhere to get a hamburger steak or good cheeseburger up fraser anymore.
Big Scoop, Eddie's, Ron's Cafe and Lim's Inn are all gone and we're stuck with this crap.
