I've stayed at the hotel this shares an address with a number of times, and inevitably end up eating here at least once per visit. Sometime the food is good, sometime it's just adequate, but it is always too expensive.

Food was good and service OK....not as good as the Ancaster location. It was a convenient place for two of us to meet, both coming from different directions, but I wouldn't make a point of returning.

Nice to see new clean chairs. Food average, prices average. Always know what you're going to get, so reliable that way. Waitresses can sometimes be a bit stiff. Not enough front staff, always waiting.

The restaurant is comfortable and fairly spacious. You don't feel like you are sitting on top of the table beside you. We were warmly greeted and quickly seated. The server was pleasant and efficient. Our food was good, not memorable. The menu is fairly extensive,...More
