One of my favorite passtimes is to plan a trip and shop around for the best rate. We would be getting a late start to head back to Pennsylvania from Toronto for the Easter Holidays, so we decided to book a room. We usually like to get as far as Watertown, New York but all their hotels seemed to raise their rates back to the summer rates.
The usual room we would get for $40 US with a roomsaver.com coupon was now $60. US which would convert to nearly $100. Canadian, so we decided to find a room in Gananoque, Ontario. Plus we really love Gananoque and it was December 1999 that we got engaged there. After shopping around I found a 2 room whirlpool suite at the Comfort Inn for only $89. CAD. A standard room would of been only about $55.

The waitress was very friendly and my husband ordered a strip steak, and asked her to tell the chef to please cut off the strip of fat, as he always orders it this way. He ordered the rice, and I ordered the fried seafood combo with a baked potato. His dinner arrived with a very fatty steak and a baked potato. I mentioned that he ordered rice, and the waitress grabbed his whole plate and took it back, instead of saying "I'll bring your rice right out" Anyways she did bring the plate back out with the potato still on it and said the rice will be awhile and my husband said, it really don't matter, so we heard her tell the chef to forget the rice.
My seafood was good, my potato was piping hot, but hard in the middle. The waitress was super friendly, but just doing so looking for a good tip (which she was lucky she got the $3 we left her) and not concerned about her customers. She didn't bring us the desert tray as she did the other tables. She should of apoligized for screwing up the rice and should of said eat the potato if you would like until I bring out the rice you ordered. She should of noticed that the so called piece of steak (FAT) was still on my husbands plate. The whole thing was all gristle, even I could see this, the chef never even cut the strip of fat off. People might say,, well you don't order steak at a seafood restaurant, but I say if they can't cook a decent steak, then why have it on the menu.
Our bill was over $60 which included a $6.95 frozen marguerita which was the best thing on the menu. I don't mind paying alot for a decent meal, but in my opinion we would of had a better meal at long john silvers for $10.
We will never go there again for dinner, but we do love their breakfast.
