    2. My only tip is that they had a really cool liquor store across from some Al Capone motel or something. Just stopped there on my way to Calgary, so I have no further information.

      1. Nits (on Main) used to have good food, but its a hole - think: Hmmmm...they have not updated the decor in here since 1973...or cleaned it.. You can get a decent lunch at Evette Moore's Gallery. I have not been to MJ for a year or so, but that's about all there is for decent chow in MJ. Stay away from the Chinese Buffet restaurant with the green sign - there's only pure evil in there.

        1. Bumping this thread.

          Anyone have any comments for restaurants in Moose Jaw?

          I've enjoyed meals at Houston Pizza (mini chain in SK with family style restaurants) and will be visiting Nick's place, another family restaurant, on my next visit!

          1. I spent a night in Moose Jaw in September,.... I really liked the city,... we searched for the Cordova Bistro, which had been recommended by my Bro-in-law who was there for a family reunion a couple months ago,.... he's from Mississauga and a real culture vulture,... he was very impressed... Anyway we found it 303 Main St N. ... v. fun eclectic interior, spacious, clean, good service, fair good wine list,.. Mediterranean menu (Greece to Portugal)... I'm a sucker for Greek Back Ribs and these were excellent,... lemon roast potato yummy,.. great interpretation of ratatouille,... companion had great mussels,... will definitely go back sometime,.... the desk clerk at our hotel said it was expensive,.. but we found it moderate for what we got,... would pay more in Wpg and way more in Cgy...
            Oh,... we saw the Chinese Buffet restaurant with the green sign,.. almost went in,.... thanks for the heads up!

              Thanks for your comments!

              We ended up at Nick's Place- #1 on tripadvisor for restaurants in Moose Jaw. Good quality family restaurant with huge portions.

              Will hopefully try Cordova on a future visit!

            2. So Cordova and Nick's Place. Any other suggestions? I'm heading there for three days this weekend.

              Thanks,

                As I mentioned this earlier in the thread, I like Houston Pizza. I have enjoyed their Greek salad, dry ribs, pizzas & lasagna. Standard Saskatchewan-style family restaurant menu, with big portions of hearty food. http://www.houstonpizza.ca/menu

                One great thing about Moose Jaw is that the servers are always so friendly in their restaurants.

                IIRC, there's a decent candy shop with fudge and handdipped chocolates on main street, too.

              2. more links:
                The Copper Cafe is in the Yvette Moore Gallery.

                  Heading to Moose Jaw.

                  Anyone have any favourite dishes they'd recommend at Cordova, The Copper Cafe, or Nick's Place? Have any new restaurants opened up over the last 18 months?

                2. Tough call. My home town ain’t about much these days other than Boston Pizza. Some tips: try Bobby’s Place-a little pub on High Street. While there, buy some donuts at the Dutch Bakery. Lastly, if you wanna seek it out, grab a pepperoni pizza from Rodo’s (if they’re still around)

                    What's good at Bobby's Place?

                    I do like the Dutch Bakery- I brought a selection of their squares to a reunion last time I was in MJ, and they tasted better than some of the home-made offerings.

                    Looks like Rodos is still around. http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/274/15802...

                    Have been to Nick's Place, and Houston Pizza several times. Rodos is next on my list.

                    Is there anything else you'd recommend besides pepperoni pizza at Rodos?

                      I had the fish & chips at Bobbys & it was really good, the shepherds pie on the other hand...not so much.
                      Great little pub, have even been on a few nights where they have live music :)

                        Good to know. Thanks, Bellavino!

                      2. re: prima

                        Ended up at Houston's again. Liked their corn chowder and Greek salad.

                        Also tried some decent veggie pizza from the Mad Greek. Would like to try more of their menu in the future.

                        Hope to try Yesteryear's borscht on my next visit to Moose Jaw.

                        1. re: prima

                          Anyone dined in Moose Jaw lately? Had an good Greek meal at the Mad Greek in February.

                          Has anyone dined at Cordova or Nick's Place recently? Looking for a family restaurant, rather than a pub. Thanks fo any ideas.

                          1. re: prima

                            Just an update, Nick's Place closed some time ago.

                            Last time I was in Moose Jaw, I ended up at the Mad Greek, and tried their Greek platter (which I don't see on the online menu- maybe it was a special http://themadgreekeatery.com/ ), which was pretty good. I've also ordered the spinach feta lasagna on another visit, which is a very generous portion.

                            Melrose Place recently opened at 50 Caribou St W. Haven't been. http://www.mjtimes.sk.ca/News/Local/2...
