We were immediately greeted by the very friendly hostess, who seated us promptly in a nice corner booth. Our waitress soon came right after to take our drink orders as well as to tell us about the daily specials. My husband and I were both very surprised we looked at the menu and realized that we were seeing steak and lobster and King crab legs and not just hamburgers. So after few moments, we both decided on the steak and King crab legs and then settled back as we casually sipped our drinks. One thing I did notice while we relaxed and waited for our meals is that even at 5pm this place is busy so it’s important to get there early to get a better table.
We had been told by the staff at the hotel that this would be the last civilization we would see for about 1,400 miles so we were more than happy to spend a few extra dollars on a nice meal. The prices on the menu weren’t that bad, but they weren’t that great either. The entire cost of our dinner in Canadian dollars came to about $65.00, however that was worth it. Not only was the service absolutely wonderful but the food was delicious. Both of our steaks came out cooked perfectly and the King crab legs were sweet and succulent and oh so tasty. Also served with both of our dishes were extremely large baked potatoes that could be topped with just about anything and everything one could ever want and a very large salad served at the beginning of the meal. The meal was not only delicious it was very filling as both my husband and I could barely finish our plates.
If your traveling plans take you to Dawson Creek and then forward on to the Alcan, I definitely suggest this restaurant. Whether you’re dining with your family or just your significant other, this is a great restaurant to get a delicious meal as well as to relax after a long day of driving.
