For those craving meat-based dishes, the restaurant boasts a wide selection, featuring classic pasta favourites such as Bolognaise and Carbonara. Additionally, the menu showcases an assortment of delectable soups and an array of flavourful meat dishes that are the steakhouse’s claim to fame. “We pride ourselves on using the best available ingredients that our great Canadian producers offer,” the restaurant explains. “From our rich and plentiful waters to our fertile lands, it’s our treasured responsibility to carefully and respectfully prepare these ingredients with the same love and attention that nourished them.”

Some of the fan-favourite dishes are the tenderloin, the rib eye, and the seasonal fish dishes like halibut and sea bass, depending on the time of year. The journey to Longview Steakhouse as you know it today began when co-owner, Samir Belmoufid’s parents started the restaurant about 30 years ago. Samir’s brother, Karim, is the chef and the two brothers manage all of the day-to-day operations. While the food is the best of the best, the brothers pride themselves on staying away from the pretentiousness that often comes with elevated dining. It’s all about doing what they love, offering a wholesome experience, and putting their heart and soul into every dish.

If you’re looking for a memorable meal and some of the best steakhouses in the province, look no further.
