With the NHL, NFL and CFL seasons in full swing, the seven Station des Sports restaurant locations represent the perfect spot to enjoy a good meal with friends and watch the games of the day or night.
Restaurateur and businessman Peter Sergakis owns the chain, which has restaurants in West Island Île-Perrot, Laval, Saint Leonard, two downtown and two in South Shore Brossard.
Each location has multiple flat-screen televisions, great finger foods, full course meals and your choice of beer and alcohol.
At the Île-Perrot location, manager Costa Soilis aims to please. He has been at this spot since it opened six years ago, having started off as a chef and then taking charge. Throughout the pandemic he kept the place running with take-out and delivery orders. Now he is overseeing the return to in-person dining. The terrasse season has regrettably ended for their patio can accommodate 90 people. He and wonderful server Sophie, who has also been on staff since the start (in between becoming a mom three times), told me how these days they also must play the role of COVID-19 vaccine passport copies. Regularly they have to prevent unwanted customers from coming through the front door.
There are 350 seats inside and another 100 in the upstairs banquet room. Costa told me that a lot of groups are making books, especially pleased with the way his team is following COVID protocols. “I am in touch with the leagues of different sports in the area,” he says.
I was impressed with the variety on this “fun” menu, featuring appetizers, poutines, burgers and sandwiches, pasta, pizzas, steak, ribs, brochettes, chicken, salmon and desserts.
After enjoying a nice appetizer of six cheese sticks along with my friend Chelsey, I was eyeing the AAA 14 ounce rib steak, served with pepper sauce, mushrooms and fries. It came perfectly prepared, medium and cut like butter. I highly recommend it. Chelsey chose the hamburger steak, with vegetables, sautéed onions, homemade gravy and mashed potatoes she raved about.
For dessert, I took home a decadent piece of sugar pie which I thoroughly enjoyed for lunch the next day.
