Read the reviews and checked the hours. Drove over to find it closed even though hours on door showed as closing two hours later. A note on the door would have been nice.

Decided to drop in last evening with my wife and son for a burger, glad we did!! Son had Kangaroo burger, very moist and tasted flavourful, I had the spicy Blue Cheese burger, also flavourful, and my wife really enjoyed the Chili, full of meat and kick!

The décor reminds you a little of the 50s.... happy vibe of another era! The food was great! Simple but cooked perfectly. Loved the Club!

I have only been to Dick's twice and although they have a pretty extensive menu I cannot get past the Alberta Bison Burger because it is just so good. With my burger I had the Half Fries & Onion Rings Combo. The fries were fine but put against the onion rings they did not stand a chance because those onion... More

We stopped by on a whim looking for some quick takeout to carry on with our trip. We were not disappointed. It took about 10 minutes, which is good for fresh cooked meals to go. The decor was awesome, a sense of the 50s and 60s with the same era of music playing in the back ground. The burgers and... More

Good Club Sandwich and Lamb Burger. This place also offers Ostrich, Bison and other less common meat choices. Service was a little slow but the server was a cutie patootie. The special on the card on all the tables falsely includes the exotic burger fut only the regular burger applies.

Deliciously seasoned burger and juicy. Bun was fresh and onion rings are delicious. Happy with my meal. My daughter had a hotdog combo with fries and... More

My family and I have been going here for years! Disappointed they don't deliver through SkipTheDishes anymore. Their spicy blue cheese burger is my absolute favourite! The milkshakes and floats are amazing, as well as their fries, hot dogs, and really any burger. Great atmosphere and amazing food!

This is one of my favorite restaurants - the serving sizes are huge. The Ottawa club is my absolute favorite club ever - the chicken is actual chicken breast (not sliced processed) and includes onion rings in the sandwich which makes it takes even better. The fries are perfect. I also recommend the shakes (vanilla is my favorite). These are... More
