A lot of the tables had been booked for several parties .But still lots of tables available . We were told the food orders for all these groups were placed to be ready when they arrived and that we would have to wait a long time before our order would have been done . Don't you think you should take... More

Good food. Menu was varied enough to please. Good beer selection. Good parking. Kids eat free Friday and Saturday 4-6. A little off of the main road so you have to look for it.

Food was good. Service friendly and outgoing. View of the water great! Only thing, the menu on TripAdvisor is out of date. Burgers for instance, are not $9.99, but $14.49. See the current menu at Stokes' website!!!

The view is wonderful from this restaurant. Water and boats, can't get much better. We had 3 Cheese Cappelletti & Bacon and Chicken al Forno (spicy) with a Caesar salad. Both were very tasty and filling, couldn't finish Cappeletti ate not even half of it. After the meal we walked to the water and enjoyed the view there for a... More

This is the resaurant we love the most. The servers are always so upbeat all the time. They even make suggestions as far as the menu. We enjoy the food, the atmosphere and the feeling like you belong and they care what you're eating. Great place

Went to Stokes while docked in the marina near by. Both meals were EXCELLENT. The onion soup is the tops and the steak was cooked to perfection, for a picky eater I might add. And the sundae..... Like I said it was all delicious

Certainly no complaints about the location near Sarnia Bay ... or the service which was thoughtful and attentive. You can eat inside or out in the patio, in booths or at tables, in various area and levels with lots of TV's for the sports enthusiasts. There were plenty of servers, even for the early Sunday lunch crowd. We chose to... More

Stokes is a big place, with a nice patio with a river view. I had ribs that had apparently won Sarnia rib fest for numerous years. They were good. The other dishes we tried included burgers and salads and all were fine. This place has a friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. I recommend it for lunch and dinner.
