Came to have a great night with another couple and it started off with us being ignored at our table. When we approached the bar the bartender reassured us a server would come over shortly. Eventually a server came over and took our drink order (which came wrong the first time and took over 5 minutes- waters ignored of course).... More

My sons birthday, had his heart set on steak and the line up at The Keg was too long. Saw this steak house and thought we'd give it a try. Yuk. First we got a Ceasar with a big hair in it. Then we ordered the steak and it was cold so we sent it back. They cooked it more... More

I love the interior here. The staff is more than friendly and the breakfast is great whether on the buffet or off the menu. So if you like a great spot and awesome service and great attitudes I'm certain you'll love it here.

After spending a day in Niagara on the Lake and then stopping in St. Catharines, we wanted and easy and reasonable price dinner before we headed back to Toronto. The restaurant was not busy because it was a Sunday evening but we were greeted by our server Brad who could not have been nicer. He gave us recommendations for food... More

After a bad incident at the Skyzone trampoline park next door and my date and I trying to figure out a place to eat we decided on JJ Kapps. Knowing it was wing night, I anticipated it would be busy, well not where we were seated it wasn't. After being greeted and sat by who I think was one of... More

Highly recommend the stead or beef meals at JJ Kapps. Try the 7 oz Flat Iron steak. Melt in your mouth, good!

JJ Kapps is attached to the Holiday Inn. It was one of the few places open in the evening on Boxing Day, but not at all disappointing. The layout created fairly intimate spaces, decor was warm, menu covered the bases, from vegan to steak, barfood to cajun. Dinner was tasty, service was friendly, and price was .. reasonable. $60 plus... More

I have to give it to this place. We had their Brie appetizer which was honestly amazing. My wife ordered the salmon and I ordered the Butternut Squash Ravioli. My ravioli, which was supposed to be an entree, was really good but the serving size was so small that it was served on a small rectangular plate. $17 for less... More

Been brought here a few times with other people. Hit and miss food. Sometimes overcooked. Sometimes cold. Sometimes good. Service has been great each time. I won't refuse to go but I wouldn't go on my own.
