Ole Saint-NOLA

Wow, what a disaster!  No, I am not going to beat around the bush on this one.  This restaurant is attached and apparently affiliated with the Wyndham Hotel in the French Quarter where we stayed.  Someone had said the food was decent and would be okay to experience.  Since my wife and I were looking …

Pere Antoine-NOLA

This evening we decided to enjoy some good ole nawlins food.  Our journey took us to this quaint little place called Pere Antoine's.  Its a nice little corner spot that feels like what you'd expect from a restaurant here.  Homey and comfortable with touches that remind you of grandma's house.  One of the reasons for …

Oceana Grill-NOLA

Since it is National Oyster Day and I am in Nawlins (New Orleans), it is only fitting that I have a go at some Oysters from a local eatery.  Cruising up and down Bourbon Street (actually walking a snails pace), I came across Oceana Grill.  I recall seeing the name on TripAdvisor and it was …

Bravo! Pizzeria & Grill-Niagara Falls

Headed down to the Falls to see the fire works and decided to enjoy a family dinner.  I hadn't eaten at Bravo! before so I suggested this and the wife agreed.  It was a good decision.  The atmosphere is amazing and comfortable.  It has a contemporary feel to it.  The staff are very pleasant and …

Mr. B’s Bistro-NOLA

My wife and I arrived in New Orleans and were looking for some good food (which is obvious when you're in the French Quarter).  A dear friend of mine recommended Mr. B's Bistro and since I trust his judgement, we chose to dine here.  This was NOT a mistake! The restaurant sits at the corner …

St. Ignace Truck Stop-Michigan

Our last day in St. Ignace and the only place we could find to get in was this truck stop.  Never let anyone tell you that trucks stops aren't decent food.  They'd be wrong.  There is nothing like home cooking and that is what we found here. The staff are friendly and when ordering, our …

The Galley Restaurant-St. Ignace, Michigan

We saw that this place did breakfast, so the next day we made a point of stopping in and giving it a try.  What a great idea it was! From the moment we were shown to our table, you notice the view out into the harbour.  Breathtaking.  Our server was amazingly quick and always smiling. …

Mary’s Bistro-Mackinac Island, Michigan

We crossed over to Mackinac Island and decided this is where we would enjoy an afternoon lunch.  The hostess was pleasant and showed us outside to the patio facing the pier.  Our server was quick to greet us and took our order quite quickly.  I noticed that she had quite a few tables but she …

Mackinac Grille-St. Ignace, Michigan

It took us a couple of days to decide to come to this restaurant as every day there was a lineup out into the parking lot to get inside.  We figured that we would give it a try, as the reviews we read on this place were decent. The interior is nice enough, and the …

Jose’s Cantina, St. Ignace, Michigan

The family and I decided that Mexican was something we would like to try since Mexican isn't synonymous with Upper Peninsula, Michigan.  We figured this would be a "Taco Bell" style of food, but thought, "what the heck..." This is an authentic Mexican restaurant, right from the decor, the menu and the flavours.  I was …
