This restaurant gets a Poor instead of Terrible rating because the service was good. It has been many years since we've been to Stayners. We went last November and again last week. The experience in November was so-so. My pan fried haddock was quite dry, even as it was drowning in a bucket of sauce. Maybe they thought I would... More

My wife and I frequently search for a nice place to have supper and a nice dinning experience. Recently we decided to go to Stayner's Wharf Pub & Grill. After enjoying a nice glass of wine, we decided on the Cajun Haddock. It was amazing, the service was friendly helpful and quick. But we both had the Cajun Haddock and... More

We were out with another couple and had drinks and supper here. Service was above average and food was too. The bartender knew what he was doing for sure! Would definitely recommend this spot.

Friday night was packed. Very glad we decided to stay the 20 mins for a table. Haven't been here in awhile but the food and service is worth returning. They have a unique take on nachos with their own house-prepared salsa...yes, it's green but so good! The fish and chips are fresh with the lightest of batter. The Chicken Parma... More

We had a nice meal at Stayner's last night. It has interesting pub food, nice atmosphere and good service. The fish tacos were okay, but our starters (calamari & spinach salad) were quite good.
