A "hole in the wall" but a must visit in Yellowknife. Homemade everything and great service. The fish on the menu is whatever comes out of the lake and is prepared in an open style kitchen. Gives you a homey feel and is very comfortable. It's pricey but worth it!

I did have hesitation before going in to this restaurant which looks so shabby. However, the restaurant was unexpected FULL. Since we haven't reserved a table in advance, we had to wait almost half an hour for vacancy. Many items in the menu but some items were not available. We finally ordered steak and fish & chips. The sauce for... More

Being top-ranked in TA, we had to check out Bullocks' Bistro. As a big fan of seafood, this was the place for us. We enjoyed both meals at Bullocks' Bistro and have the following tips for those planing to visit: 1. Try to avoid Sunday - Bullocks' Bistro is one of the few restaurants open on Sunday evening in Yellowknife... More

Bullock's is a Yellowknife icon for a reason. Yes, it's a little pricey. Yes, it's a little loud. BUT, the portions are huge and delicious, amazing bread and house made dressing, fresh cut fries and the atmosphere is just so uniquely Yellowknife. This place is not pretentious and I can't wait to go back.

And if you visit their washroom you will get... More

Casual but fills up quickly. Reservations recommended. The staff are friendly but you can see at times they are extremely busy and harried during service. If you want to leave a mark, bring and pen and write - if you can find an empty slot. Crappy dinner companions with nothing to talk about? Use the trivial pursuit cards on the... More

We ordered the fish of the day! It was fresh off the lake and cooked to perfection. It took us two days to get a reservation. It is a small restaurant and really busy but definitely worth the wait! Jessie, our server, was so friendly and made great recommendations from the menu. Don't miss dinner there if you are in... More
