Big Ridge has a pub on one side and a restaurant on the other. Cold beer and wine store attached.
Had a large party here on Saturday night (25-30 people). We ended up having more people than expected, but the staff didn't panic at all - they calmly and professionally moved some stuff around to accomodate us. The wait staff handled our large group very efficiently and were never bitchy (as is the case most other places with large groups). They were fantastic - will definitely be back again and again.
We don't live close but we make an effort the dine here at least twice a year. We have also taken both sets of parents and they loved it. My dad still talks about how great the food was and if you knew my dad you would know that's a great review in itself.
The food is great and we love that we can take our baby here with no problems. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and the staff are attentive and accommodating.
I highly recommend!
The two for one pizza always makes this a family favorite. I do not like pizza generally but find the pizzas here quite outstanding and the fussy kids love it too. Oh, yes, the fussy husband does too.
The staff are friendly and so patient with the little ones.
We do go to Big Ridge on other days of the week and have great meals. I love the chicken salad for a light lunch and they have so rather naughty desserts.
My friend took me here for my birthday and I have to say that I was neither impressed nor disappointed. The service was alright and the ambiance was nice however my meal was nothing to call home about. Overall I am not really sure whether I will return again...I guess I'll decide that when the time comes.
This is a brewpub. The food is not designed neatly on the plate with wonderful designs that mean nothing once it hits your esophagus. The food tastes excellent. It's always fresh and is delivered quickly unless directed otherwise. The pub is out of my way in Surrey, but I still choose this location on a regular basis because of its consistency in flavour and service. The waitresses might not be "Earl's Waitresses" -- guys, you know what I mean, but they're friendly and give the establishment that "neighbourhood pub, sort of community feel." That said, its finest product is its own beer. They brew their own beer on the premises and it tastes fantastic -- very fresh. I would have given it an overall 5. It certainly is a 5 for Surrey in terms of restaurants, but I am a little biased to reserve a 5 for "Fine Dining". This, obviously, is not.
Choose what you'd like off the menu. You won't be disappointed. The Beef Ribs is about the only meal I've had in 4 years that I couldn't finish. The same could be said of their Chow Mein -- massive portion. The pizzas are the best in the Lower Mainland. Kalamari is excellent, Garlic Prawns, Lamb steak with Blueberry something or other. You name it, it's great. I have tried approximately 75% of their menu and have not been disappointed. But hey -- if you don't want to go, that's great. It'll be easier for me to get a seat. Oh, did I mention how good their freshly-made beer is?
Went there for the first time for lunch. Food was very tasty, I had the Black & Blue Burger with fries (which are beer-battered), came with just the right amount of blue cheese, my Mom had the Halibut on a bun with salad, and commented that it was fresh, (not a frozen piece of fish), which she also enjoyed. Our server was very nice. Would go there again.
It's and OK place and great place to drop by if you are in the neighbourhood especially on Sundays because the beer is cheap and pizzas are half priced. The pizzas are good. Thin crusted. I especially like the vegetarian. Some of the Wok dishes are OK some not so OK. The ambiance is average (typical pub/restaurant. Service is good. It isn't fine dining or anything but neither are the prices. It's also a good place to hang out after work with colleagues.
Good place for beers they have a pub side and a restaurant side menu items are a bit different. They do have a couple of solid items on the restaurant menu. Pizza is pretty good, and I enjoy the Sweet and Sour Pork and the Cashew Chicken Chow Mein. Quality is noticeable but the portions are a bit on the small side and can be inconsistent. Don't really care for any of their appetizers either, less pub-like more upscale. A bit on the pricey side for most dishes too so it's not a place I would recommend putting into the dining out rotation on an ongoing basis. They have room for larger groups too 10-15.
