This used to be one of my favourite restaurants. The last couple of meals I ordered were not good. I don't know if it's because of pandemic and they are skipping corners but I tried the chicken finger meal and they tasted good as usual...but the fries were cold and greasy and the coleslaw was rotten. The second meal I tried was a chines combo and the shrimp and chicken balls coating was cold and rubbery (both pick-up not delivery). So sad that this has happened to what used to be one of my regulars. I won't be ordering here again.More

Support local... this place is amazing and tasty. Totally worth going and the soup is also good. Chicken fingers r the best in the city. Also the home made cesaar dressing is amazing if you are a cesar salad lover like I am

We went for dinner on a Saturday night, it was super quiet in the restaurant, so didn't have to wait long for service or food. Unfortunately when the food came we asked about the sweet and sour sauce for the amazing chicken fingers, and the...server advised there was an "up charge" because we had our food already. We said fine thinking it would be .50 cents, on the bill we were charged $5.85 for it, and when we commented on the charge she gave us total attitude about it (basically saying the price is on the menu) Our bill was just under $100, felt it was an unnecessary charge, so it left a very bad taste in our mouths, will likely never go back.More

My husband and I frequent Mitzi's when we are on one of our "date nights". We have brought others to share in this lovely experience with us. I have never had a bad experience, starting with the hospitality when we first arrive. It is like...going to visit a friend rather than entering a restaurant. Beverages are brought in a timely manner, before your meal arrives, and the coffee is always fresh and delicious. I personally always end up with at least half of my meal packed up to take home. Portion size is huge!! Serving staff has a great sense of humor, and are always friendly. My husband has been going to Mitzi's for about 35 years. He introduced me to this lovely restaurant. The family that owns the restaurant must be doing something right since there are not a lot of restaurants that have been in business that long. Their chicken fingers and stir fry dishes are always fresh and very flavorful. Their honey dill sauce is absolutely amazing! (I even asked for it in a soup bowl because I couldn't get enough!) There is one thing that I didn't have the pleasure of experiencing, and I really wish I had. The owner's brother in law, used to greet guests at the door, wearing a tuxedo, and making sure "his" guests had everything they needed. My husband knew him, and has told me many times what a wonderful, kind and gentle man he was. I was sad to learn of his passing. As for the restaurant, I recommend it to everyone that asks where to go in Winnipeg. My only wish would be that the had more parking available for disabled persons. Other than that, don't take my word for it, go and experience this fabulous restaurant for yourself!More

We found the chicken fingers to be soft and moist but did not like the fries. I agree with some others comments that homemade fries would have been much better. The fingers were bland where years ago the fingers were much larger and far tastier....The chicken teryaki was okay.WeI think the fingers at Lee`s on De Vries are much better. They are very busy so at lunch can take 10 minutes or more to pay. We like to be given a bill at our table but this place does not give you one. Service was friendly.More

Amazing chicken fingers! Had them at a 50th birthday party and everyone was asking who made them. I’ll be visiting the restaurant soon.

We came early and it got really busy, but the service was good no matter how many people came in after us. The chicken fingers were not as I would describe as the best, but they are very good and very tender. My biggest complaint,...for a place that specializes in chicken fingers, I would have expected homemade fries to go with it not your store-bought crinkle fries. I would have given them 4 stars if they put some effort into getting homemade fries to go with their handmade chicken fingers.More

Our office frequently orders in the famous chicken fingers for birthdays. I have eaten there many times but would never think of not getting the delicious chicken fingers. I recommend accompanying them with fries and not rice.
