We stopped at Ernies for dinner with friends. We hadn't been in over 20 years and decided to give it a go as we were in the area. We were impressed. The service was great and the food was delicious. We ordered three mac burgers...and one rib dinner and everyone enjoyed their meal. We had a great experience at Ernies and will definitely be back!More

This was our first meal out since Covid-19 kept us all at home. We went with friends and each ordered a different meal. All meals were excellant. Hot, tastey and delivered timely. Our waitress was also the owner and was very friendly and cheerful. She...made sure we were comfortable and all was good. Perfect service and great food. We will be back for sure. Thanks for a great experience!More

I wish they would up date the place. The place is old and dirty. Carpet needs hardwood. All I could smell was cigarette smoke, the waitress said it's from the adjoining apartments?? Would love to go and enjoy the atmosphere. Food was at par.

We stopped for supper and a drink. The atmosphere is great. The staff are amazing. We both ordered burgers and draught. Our waitress Sara was super helpful and friendly. The fresh-cut fries at Ernie's are so good!! The burgers are huge and really tasty. We...ordered the veggie burger and the Ernie's burger. We left stuffed!! Icwas happy to see many vegetarian friendly options! I will definitely go back if I am in the Cambridge area.More

On occasion, I crave good wings and that's when I head over to Ernie's in Cambridge(Hespeler). The location has been around for years. The menu offers a variety of good eats with lots of cold beverages on tap.In the summertime, the back balcony is open...so one feels the breezes from the river. A great place for lunch or dinner.More

Haven’t been here in years and decided to give it another try and we were so disappointed in the food! Wings were very saucy and hard just like the old days and barely any meat on them and also had a burnt taste! The best...part of our meals was the fries! The service was really good but will not return!More

This was my second time here - took 20 minutes for someone to come to our table and take a drink order. When I asked a question about an app my server gave a extremely rude answer. Our food took almost an hour to get...to us - the server did not come to our table once after we ordered our food to the time we received our food. NOT ONCE. No re full on water - didn’t ask if we wanted anything else to drink other then water ....absolutely painful being there. The food was also crap. My main dish was so small in portion size, my friends meat on their sandwich was undercooked. It took over an hour to get the food...why was it undercooked. The place maybe had 6 tables total - they were NOT busy. After this experience I told everyone I know...I have never gone back and will never go back to this place. I complained and all the manager did for me was 10% off...ha just awful....brutal staff brutally trained people, don’t know how to properly please your guests. I got a half ass apology from our server before we left, she really ment it............ I advise you to not go to this pub - not worth a pennyMore
