We go to this restaurant often when there are no restrictions. However now that they can only be open for take-out we decided to support them by ordering take-out. We ordered one of our regular combinations and to our surprise it was not much different...than dining in. Their soups are always an unusual combination and quite tasty. Please support your local restaurants.More

Went for dinner with my Mom and sister and we all ordered the Steak Bearnaise with Mashed Potatoes and Vegetables. Our meal also included the soup and salad bar, a choice of dessert and a drink. We all agreed that our meal was very tasty...and that the Chef did an amazing job cooking our steaks just the way we like them. We also had a wonderful server who made our experience the best. We will definitely be coming back for another visit very soon. To get the special meal we enjoyed you have to be there between 3:00pm and 6:00pm. on Saturday’s.More

We made reservations several days ahead for 9 people on New Years Day. When we got there, there was no reservation for us. Then they attempted to seat us in the bar area despite one of our guests who has mobility issues and would not...be able to climb onto the high bar stool. There was no apology. We went to Red Lobster instead and they were so accommodating and service was excellent. This is the second time our reservation was missed and they tried to seat us on bar stools, again disregarding our guest with mobility issues. We will never go there again and do not recommend this place.More

We are so sorry to hear of your experience. Your comments have been shared with all involved and our reservation system has been streamlined. The reason you were offered the lounge area which has the stools was so that there was some sort of option....More

Met a friend here tonight for drinks, followed by dinner. We hadn’t seen each other in eight years, so lots of catching up! We saw three servers during the course of our visit, drinks and then our dinner. I had pizza and my friend had...a wrap. Our meals were very good!More

The only saving grace about our two visits here (dinner and breakfast) was the fact that the grand kids enjoyed the items on the Kids' Menu. Their dinner was mainly frozen items..chicken fingers and pizza, but the fries looked homemade and were delicious. Their breakfast...was from scratch and were huge portions of pancakes. Adults need only order coffee as your kids will have a lot of things to share since they could not finish this feast. Adult dinners were what dragged the rating down, their $14.95 early bird special was a real disappointment. In most cases it was the quality of the meat, steak, liver, and roast beef were all a disappointment. We didn't expect much for the money, but it was mediocre at best.More

My husband had the buttermilk pancakes, my daughter had French toast and I had a roasted veggie Panini with soup. All the meals were delicious and very generous with their proportions.The service was fast and friendly. There is lots of free parking. Next time we...are in London we want to try this place for dinner. It also has a separate bar area. The seating area in the restaurant and bar are quite large.More

Four of us met for a breakfast meeting and even though they had a nice breakfast selection on the menu, you can't beat the breakfast special and the price! Their breakfast special is 2 eggs, 2 bacon strips, 2 sausage links, and your choice of...either pancakes OR toast and hash browns. Our eggs and bacon were made exactly the way we all liked them and our waitress was very attentive and fun to talk too. Being attached to the Lamplighter Inn, it has the usual decor found in a hotel restaurant but it was very comfortable and we will definitely return again!More

I'm not sure who this "Shelly" person is, but you know... we could soon be going steady! This restaurant is attached to the Best Western on Wellington Road. I didn't think of them yesterday, and I should have. I'm on my own for a few...days and I wanted a small steak after too much fast food on the road. Nothing fancy. Just that's what I wanted, and supper was super! I've been running on short nights so I wanted an early supper. Good move! They have an "Early Bird" menu for supper. For under $17 I got my steak and fries, nice vegetables, (soup available, but I passed on what looked like a first rate choice of two) and really nicely prepared vegetables - peppers, beans, and carrots. Chelsea popped out of nowhere when I arrived and seated me immediately. The room was lighted gently with dignity, and there was pleasant quiet music. The seating was comfortable and the table was the right height. Chelsea took my order promptly and served it quickly. The flavour was marvellous. Interestingly, management is apparently aware of local sensitivities. A large national brand condiment manufacturer recently closed its plant down the road putting hundreds out of work and leaving farmers with a useless crops after years and decades of steady purchases. A slightly lesser known brand bought in, saving jobs and hopes and presenting an almost indistinguishable condiment from the other. Unlike other nearby restaurants, Shelly's had that brand on my table. Good for them. Good move! The restaurant is near a very major road, and I could hear the fire engines loudly enough to be interested but not so loudly as to be distracting. In fact, the acoustics seem to absorb undesirable sound levels from inside and out making the room dignified and quietly pleasant. The bar has a reasonable selection and covers all the basics. Will I be back? Yes and soon!More
