Had a very large, messy tasteless burger with soggy fries. Service was good, prices not bad. Disappointing.

Easy access just off the Trans Canada. Plenty of parking. Good food, fast service, exactly what you'd expect from a diner.

We had lunch at the Red Rooster Diner for the second time after a hike to Bannon Falls. Situated at the FasGas right beside a farmers market, the servings are very generous and the food is excellent. I have tried 2 of their Korean specialities and they were both very good. The burgers, sandwiches and soup were also rated highly... More

So my husband and I drive up about once a week for our Sunday brunch about an hours both ways for some of the best food on the island. The past few visits have been concerning. This was one of the last restaurants that were consistent with really good food where as of late they have completely dropped the ball.... More

The food is always excellent, plentiful, not expensive and comes fast. The staff is the friendliest, and they are not opposed to accommodating requests. Lots to choose from, and a clean comfortable setting.

The service was ok, but the food was disgusting. Our fries were overdone and greasy and our chicken burgers was luke warm. The pie was less than appetizing. Would not go back. Third time still unlucky.

Super good poutine, gravy and real cheese curds. Prompt service. Huge portion. Friendly waitress. The menu has an interesting mix of asian and western. But the kind of mix that makes you want to come back because you bet they know what they're doing. The farmers market right beside it is awesome
