Great Food, Could Have Stayed All Night

We did the Dine Out menu at Chewies last week. It was not at all what I expected, for the location I thought it might be a bit stuffy, but it was absolutely not. The atmosphere is relaxed and very comfortable. The staff was super friendly (even though we went in the wrong door) and really knowledgeable about the food and wine. This is my best Dine Out experience so far this year, can't wait to come back.

We both started with the pork crackling which was so good, might as well call it pork crack, it was perfect. My friend had the Chicken and waffles and I went with the gumbo, both were so good. He raved about the honey butter drizzled over the fried chicken. My gumbo was so smooth and rich and smoky, it was delicious. Desserts were the potted red velvet cake and cheesecake with mulled wine poached pears, so good, not too sweet, all delicious.

There is a nice wine list, something for every palate, and very reasonably priced. We'll be back for sure, one of my new favourites.

I had worms in my food. Shouldn't be called an Oyster Bar.

My girlfriend and I have heard great things about Chewie's, so we decided to give it a try tonight for Happy Hour. The selection was great and the atmosphere was top notch.

The drinks and oysters came quick as well. However, we were appalled to find a worm on one of the oysters' shells. It was the last one we ate, so we were definitely not at ease when we thought of the 9 other ones we had already ingested. We alerted one of the waiters immediately, who brushed it off saying "oh yeah, we get those some times!". Although it was in a joking manner, I don't think this is really an acceptable situation.

Staying on the topic of oysters, we ordered the Rockefeller oyster appy, and I was welcomed with a mouth full of sand. I could individually pick out the pieces of sand and even tiny rocks.

All oysters aside, the crab cakes were incredibly mediocre and with no taste, even with the complimentary sauce. Never have I had an experience like this at a restaurant, and it'll no doubt influence my decision in visiting a Chewie's again.
