I've tried to go here a few times at totally different times of the day but it's just too popular for its own good. I've written it off as too busy. All 3 times I went they told me there was a 20-30 min wait.

How bad is a 20 minute wait though? Is that really enough to leave a restaurant and make other arrangements to eat?
I guess if you live really close or there's another restaurant you want to go to within like a block, but waiting for 20 minutes doesn't seem too bad to me.

There's so many nice restaurants in this town there's never a reason to line up. On busy nights it's normal for us to maybe pop into 2-4 restaurants seeing if they can fit us in right away. If it's more than a 5 min wait or so we move on to the next equally tasty option. Specially if there's a bunch of them on one street/block.

That said, is there a good time to go here? I'd love to get the after 9 deal but I assume that's blocked right up on weekends. How are week days after 9?

I've been there the last few Saturday nights (after 9) and I haven't had to wait for a spot. Mind you, I was happy to sit on the patio. Maybe I'm just lucky?

I've called in for a reservation to go at right 9 on week days a few times but when I got there it's usually seemed like it wasn't necessary. Though it usually starts to get really full between 9 and 10. So maybe try right at 9:00 on a week day?

Another thing, I went there a few weeks ago and we sat down at like 8:55 and hadn't ordered till around 9:15 and each got a burger and drink. I totally spaced and forgot about the half-price after 9 deal until after we'd left, and it turned out they charged us full price. Not sure if they forgot the discount, or if you have to actually sit down after 9:00. How do restaurants deal with that sort of thing? Is it seating time, or order placement time?

I would bet it was when the table was opened in their ordering system. So if you had drink orders before 9pm than that is when you arrived to them.

Yeah, probably got the drinks in at like 8:58 or something.

I finally got a chance to eat here and I'd give it a solid 7 for the food. It was Friday at lunch time and I didn't have to wait, got a table right away.

I ordered the deep friend pickles for an appy. There was about 7 sliced, deep fried pickles. The batter was fantastic and the dip was great, however it was super rich and I found about after the 3rd one, I felt like I didn't want to eat anymore, including my hamburger which hadn't arrived yet. It is a great shared appy I would suspect.

The burger I had was okay. I found the bun excellent but I really dislike eating a hamburger and when you only get a piece of the meat, it tastes just like unseasoned ground beef. I felt the seasoning lacked on the patty. The toppings and flavours were good, but felt the whole experience decent, just not overwhelmingly good.

I would try it again and I would get something different.

The fries were good and the basil dip I got with them was really a nice touch.

Ate here last night. I liked it but thought the fries were only okay. I had the mushroom burger with truffle aioli and it was awesome. My wife had the onion rings and they made me wonder why they even offer fries, very good.

Will be back.

Yes, that's exactly where it will be. Funny, my friend asked them point blank if they were opening a new location and they flat out denied it the day after I posted they were coming.

Sirs, funny thing. When I was there last week I asked point blank and they spilled the beans. Perhaps the owner found out and stonewalled any other commentary?

Was out here yesterday, building sure looks great. Many weeks away from opening I'd say.

Grand Opening on Saturday, March 2nd! Looks like they got things together. Missed their February deadline though.

Three of us went there on grand opening night and had a fantastic meal. And because it was after nine our burgers were half price! Place looks really nice and is bigger than the one downtown. Open from 11:30 am to midnight on Saturdays for people looking for something to eat after a night out drinking.

Do you possibly mean BLANSHARD & Cloverdale? Seems a bit of an odd location. I would think a restaurant that serves breakfast would make a more logical choice next to the motel.

There is no restaurant space there. Unless they are build? I heard the same rumour.
