Summer menu is what brought me back. Ribs are still only offered on Thursdays even with the summer menu. The restaurant is usually packed during dinner time. Having reservations is definitely a good idea to ensure a spot.

Went to this restaurant twice while staying at the Algonquin College residence (just short walk). Found the menu had a good variety of foods. Waiting staff were friendly and accommodating. Food was good quality.

Our usual fare is the chicken quesadilla which is awesome, but thought we should try the new summer menu, now that it seems almost like summer. Took long enough! The lamb burger was very very tasty and we highly recommend it.
