Turf Legend
The Turf has been a popular Scotia restaurant since the 1940’s. The Gallants have been owners / operators since March of 1996. Prior to this, the Steve & Fanny Karamanos family operated the eatery for more than 40 years. The Stefan Banquet Room was added to the structure in 1977 and was remodeled in 1996.


A painting of “Ye Olde Gateway West Scotia Bridge” by Arthur Olson of Scotia was given to the Karamanos family in 1957. It now graces the wall of the main dining room and is a must see! A copy of the painting is on the cover of the restaurant menus.
