restaurant review: canyon creek chophouse

Restaurant: Canyon Creek Chophouse
Location: 2429 Fairview Street, Burlington, Ontario
Telephone: 905-333-3339

Meal type: Dinner

Average price per person: $26-$60

What I ordered:
Premium Top Sirloin Steak (with sweet potato fries and grilled vegetables)


This was my first visit to a Canyon Creek, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Since the weather was nice we chose to sit on the patio, which had a very nice outdoor grillhouse/bar decor to it. It's unfortunate that the patio doesn't sit more tables - I can see it filling up FAST on a weekend. The service was pretty standard for a place like this - friendly and fast.

I haven't had steak in a while, so I was pretty excited waiting for my dinner. I find a lot of restaurants North of the border overcook my steak, but I wasn't disappointed this time. My steak was cooked rare (the way I liked it) & was not overcooked at all. I could actually see the difference between my rare steak & my friend's medium rare steak which was a first for me. My sweet potato fries were great, although I wish they came at no extra cost and were accompanied with a good sauce. And my grilled vegetables were very tastey too.

I think the one thing that impressed me was the portion size. I'm usually leaving leftovers, but I almost completely finished my entree which means that the portion size was perfect! I will definitely be visitng Canyon Creek again. Although it's a bit pricier than the other chain restaurants around it's worth it for the higher quality steak.

Sorry - no pictures! My camera is on the fritz AGAIN, so I'm cameraless at least for the next little while.
