We have been coming to Rapid Valley ever since there was a restaurant on the site. This was our first visit since COVID hit.. The restaurant had an internal facelift since changing hands in May last year. The new look of the dining area is...nice - sort of upper middle range. The front end and wait staff was (and as it always has been in the past) efficient, polite and helpful. The kitchen however was having some severe problems this morning. My wife ordered the "Canadian Back Bacon BLT" which was on their Breakfast Special Menu. Since it was on the Special menu you would think they would get it right. What came to the table was a normal bacon and egg sandwich on toast. Not at all what was ordered. Rather than send it back, we kept that. It tasted good and was well prepared but it was NOT what we ordered or wanted. I ordered the "Two egg and corned beef hash". What came to the table was a "Two eggs with slices of Canadian Bacon and hash browns plate. NOT what I ordered. It went back to the kitchen. What came out was 2 eggs over easy including shards of egg shell, home fries and a large luke warm glop of what tasted like a bit of ready made Montreal Smoked Sandwich meat which had been run through a blender with some boiled potatoes. The consistency was mush and barely warm. Obviously it had never been crisped on a flat top. It wasn't bad or inedible but it certainly was NOT appealing or what I had expected. When the bill came to the table, the eggs and hash item which was listed in the menu at $9.00 was billed at $12.65. When I questioned the difference the waitress did correct it and blamed it on a programming error in the computer terminal. Through out all this the waitress, Nicki, was polite, helpful and, obviously very embarrassed. We have no problem with Nicki whatsoever, but whoever was running kitchen needs some serious remedial training in order management and basic food prep. We rate this review as "Average" but that is only due to Nicki. If it wasn't for her efforts and attitude, the rating would be "Terrible".More

Ordered a large 3 topping pizza from them last night and this is what they served, hardly any toppings the pizza wasn’t even hot and half the size that it usually is... Contacted them and got offered a small discount next time and that was...it... Posted a review about this on their Facebook page which they proceeded to delete and couldn’t even respond to it.... I have heard from others that their service has gone down hill since new owners took over and I choose not to believe it until last nightMore

Nice atmosphere and the food would have been good if it had Been hot . Nothing worse than a cold order of fish and chips. We took home the rest of the meal to reheat. I could have complained but we were hungry and didn’t...want to wait. I take part responsibility but, the server never asked how the food was.More

So curiousity got the best of us after the huge overhaul of the restaurant. Read many not so great reviews but of course we weren't going to let them be the judge. Arrived to an amazing Reno. First impressions were a hit. The menu was...great, our service was great, the coffee was delicious. Our food was was just as good always. No complaints here! Great job all around.More

I just read your review and I happened to be in the Restaurant at the time you were there. Yes it was very busy and there was a wait time which is not unusual at dinner time. To set a few things straight you were in such a rush the six of you tried to sit at a table for four which would have blocked access to other tables so you were told you could not sit there. A table of six came available and you were given that table, you didn't even give the staff time to clean the table off and you started pushing the used dishes to one end. Yes I saw the waitress spill the drinks but it was someone at your table that got up and hit the tray by accident and that is what caused the spill not the waitress. You said there was no apology, the waitress apologized numerous times to the point another customer told her to quit apologizing because it wasn't her fault it was one of your party that caused it. You were extremely rude through the whole episode and you write the review you did. I eat at Rapid Valley quite often and staff are always excellent. I just hate to see someone like you write a review like that when it was a bunch of lies. I hope people read this after your review because it was uncalled for.
