The Tomahawk Restaurant has been around since the 1920’s. It’s been featured on ‘Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives’ and also ‘You Gotta Eat Here’, which are both shows on the Food Network.
With so much buzz going on about this place, Amy, Angela, Anita, Kathy and I decided to trek all the way to North Vancouver to check it out. It was an interesting drive to this place as I kept trolling Angela by not putting my hands on the wheel as we drove on the Highway. Was she ever freaked out. hahaha.
As you walk in, there is a mini gift shop where you can buy souvenirs and other sweet treats. The wait was quite long for a table for 5 people. I think it was about 35 – 40 minutes. Seeing that there were so many awards won by this restaurant, we knew that this place was something special.
Near the couches, you will be able to spot Guy Fieri’s trademark emblem when he visits restaurants.
There’s also a mini pond with rubber duckies.
The inside was actually quite small. From the videos from the show, it seemed so much large for some reason.
Their placemats are quite interesting too. Theres a whole map of Canada and a few things that are fun facts about each province.
Coffee is a must for me when you make me wake up before noon. Free refills too!
Check out Muchkie’s Munchies to find out what she thought about it.
The beef has a nice thick cut, but at time it was a bit bland and tough. It’s just a personal preference since I like my beef a bit rare. The gravy did make it taste so much better. The yorkshire pudding was also ok. I found this dish to be a bit expensive. Probably a bit too hyped up from the TV show.
Side of Fries thats a lot of fries for just a side order.
Side of Onion Rings
Overall, the Tomahawk Restaurant was ok. The prices are a bit steep for certain items and the food is so-so. I think it really depends on this dish that you order. It has a lot of rich history in this establishment .
