    We absolutely love the ribs here, the meat literally just falls off ! Although the restaurant was less than half full, we had to wait nearly 40 minutes for our main meal, which was a bit disappointing. Overall, the atmosphere was good, seating was well laid out. However, the service was a bit slow and I had to seek out staff a couple of times to get a 2nd drink and dessert.

    Such friendly and efficient service, really delicious food and I love ordering from the QR code on the table. It saves all the hassle of splitting the bill for big groups. Really cool surrounds and good choices on the menu. Thanks for having us.

    Great food, well priced wine, the music was a bit off for a general audience with choice words in a number of songs which we didn’t think appropriate . The waitress was a little pre occupied and couldn’t get her attention when we were wanting to leave so we just went to the counter & got a doggy bag for our amazing ribs & coleslaw it was a good night & I even bought Bottle of max sauce used on my ribs

    Big Roddy's Rippin Rib Shack never fails to amaze us with the amazing taste and tenderness of the meats on offer, the sides are also quite generous and with a large array of taste, don't be left wondering, GO!!!!

    The beef ribs were superb: so was the corn bread. Service was helpful and fast. Ambience was great. Obviously a preferred venue for office and family lunches.

    Great big portions and good service! The food was even better, absolutely love the corn bread and poutine with bacon. Can't wait to go back to try more. The validating free parking was the cherry on top!

    Pleasantly surprised! Staff was cheery and helpful, we met Roddy who was friendly and attentive. We tried all 3 different ribs. All were excellent!! Melts in your mouth the meat falls off the bone when you're picking it up. Some of the sauce maybe slightly overpowering but nothing to really complain about though? The buffalo wings and cauliflower were also brilliant. We ordered more to takeaway for dinner it was that nice.

    Very friendly staff set the scene for a relaxed night. The pork rib racks were super tender with a delicious original sauce which had a lingering full flavour. Sides complemented the meal and we look forward to a return visit.

    Great quality food, the ribs were melt in the mouth and succulent, not dry at all. We also tried the Buffalo wings which had a good amount of heat and the kids loved the crumbed chicken tenderloins.
