Our local! Great beer list and good food.
I had a POKE BOWL, it was fresh and healthy, with a varied and fabulous taste. My husband loved the burger. Our server was wonderful and friendly. Beautiful table with plenty of space from others to feel safe from Covid. Cool historic too.
My first time ever experience a few years ago I had a sub-par experience at the shovel. This year has really turned it around in my books. The happy hours specials are fantastic. The servers are super helpful with food and drink recommendations. If youre going to eat or drink anywhere in Rossland, the Shovel is where to go!
Prompt service, fresh beer with an awesome selection that rotates through various local BC beers. Interesting menu, pub food with character.
Great visit - friendly service, clear Covid protocols, excellent food, local beer and a surprisingly decent wine list.
One of my favorite places to eat, great menu, my favorite is the John candy burger
Table was dirty when we arrived/ atmosphere is not great by kitchen/ door where people are exiting because of covif
Go there! It is really good, burgers and tacos are da bomb.
Great food. Definitely high quality pub food. Following COVID protocols well.
The veggie patty burgers are very good, as are the yam fries. Beefburgers also good.
Great spot. Would recommend to anyone. Great beer on tap.
Great as always, tried their special which was a neat combination of chicken with waffles and maple.
Great service and food!
Though the name implies a restaurant with an abundance of decor and ambience, it is the food and drink that make this place stand out. A very diverse menu (I had the Scotch Egg and Cuban Sandwich) provides plenty of opportunity to explore cuisine not usually found in a small rustic ski town. There is definitely something for everyone with prices that are respectful of the quality of food served. The bar and drink menu matched the girth of food menu, with a healthy mix of local beers on tap. As COVID usually works to minimize experience at most establishments today, the staff and music at the Flying Steamshovel were both respectful of pandemic stresses and worked to ensure the meal and drinks were served in a friendly and professional manner.
There service at the restaurant is beyond good. The servers are amazing. A few years ago this wasn’t the case at all, so it’s nice to have somewhere that’s changed this much.
Great pub food and good service. Children friendly.
Top notch service and atmosphere. The kitchen was done and they went above and beyond to make us comfortable and feed us.
We had brunch and the food, service and overall experience was excellent! Highly recommend and will definitely return and try the dinner menu.
Always friendly service and a great beer selection.
Felt very safe dinning with my grandsons. The service and meal was excellent.
I will be back.
The food and service was wonderful and safety was clearly a top concern.
The food and service were both great - enough that we came back two nights in a row! Good ambience inside, and great spot in town for an apres ski.
We just went for some per dinner drinks, so no comments on the food. The atmosphere was good, everything was clean and social distanced. Great evening!
Great service and food. Family friendly. Good value
Thanks for checking us out Alvaro!
Birthday party, grate service and good food
Thanks for letting us host you!
Super friendly staff and delicious food, plenty of gluten-free options.
Food overcooked or cold
Can be hit and miss
So sorry for your bad expierence, please feel free to contact management or the kitchen with any suggestions on how to improve our offerings!
Recommend for nice food et great service!
Excellent je recommande sans hésitation.
Friendly staff who were on top of the COVID safety measures.
The chicken curry bowl was fantastic.
We loved our stay! The room was clean and lovely. We had dinner at the pub downstairs and the service was fabulous. Thank you for the great experience to wrap up 2020, and for the complimentary bottle of champagne!
The food was pretty uninspiring and not a very good value.
The food was fantastic. Highly recommend the roasted root veg salad
Everything was great. Thanks u so much for making an evening out work!!!!
The roasted root veggie bowl and the yellow coconut curry are both very good. The restaurant felt clean and safe, with staff following protocol very well.
Dinner wasn’t great,, hate to complain but service was great
Hi Pam, Sorry you did not enjoy your meal. Can you let us know what you had so we can work to improve it for next time? Glad the service was great. Cheers
Cocktail, Beer and Food menu is fantastic! With COVID restrictions it is less social, but it is weird everywhere!
Glad you enjoyed our offerings! Thanks for making the drive!
Unfortunately, the burger was greasy, bun soggy (as though microwaved) and fries were also greasy and inedible. Sadly, we won't be revisiting.
Hi Cordelia, Sorry you did not enjoy your meal with us. The servers and management make a point to quality check each guest during their dining expierence. If you didn't enjoy an aspect of your expierence, its our service policy to make it right.
So nice to have a brunch option in the area! Small selection but all the important stuff was there. Lovely presentation and very tasty!
Thanks for coming in!
Prices too high. Not like it used to be. Go for high customer numbers by lowering prices and see overall tips increase plus bottom line will grow - instead of high prices that mainly tourists can pay
Hi Tom, Thanks for the feedback. Sorry the business model does not work for you. Margins are set at a fair and sustainable place to ensure the long term employment of our 30 staff. Hope to see you at The Shovel again soon!
I have never had a bad meal at the Shovel. Great place for a beer and a burger. Takes some getting used to masked servers but, it's a sign of the times. Very friendly and welcoming.
Thanks for stopping by!
