Excellent retaurant for all occasions. We had two meals there during our 2 day visit to Stratford. A lunch and a breakfast. Food is excellent and the staff is amazing! Ryan took care of us during our meals and he made us feel right at...home! Portions are generous and menu can accomodate different diets. The are amazing aboriginal art murals in the restaurant which makes it very warm and pleasant!More

Wow what a train wreck! Expected much better!!! Food choices ok, place busy but we waited an hour from the time we sat down to our appetizer. We had mentioned we were attending a performance and were also told another seating was coming at 7:30...so that hour wait rushed US -we were certainly ready to order. Parts of the order missing, sloppy snippy service. Worst of all was finding the sticker from the avocado in the main salad dish!! We were offered only half off the entree. Frankly that was inexcusable and should have come right off the meal as a great deal of it was left. Very sloppy of the kitchen and not correct of the server but had to get to our performance so didn’t pursue it. Cannot recommend this place.More

We arrived and got a lovely table on the patio. Good shade. The server a young woman was curt and seemed annoyed from the moment we sat down. She informed us there were no grilled vegetables and no wraps. We ordered four Cobb salads. Each...salad was totally different. Some were missing the grilled chicken. Others had cucumbers and tomato and carrots others had none. The lettuce was also different and honestly felt like it was out if a mixed green bag. Not fresh and tastey, but wilted. We asked about the missing chicken and it was brought. No explanation. We will not return. We really look forward to the dining experience. This was a total disappointment. Further the salads were $22+.More

This is a wonderful inn where we have visited about 8 times now while attending the Shakespeare Festival Nice rooms, attentive staff and great restaurant - a favorite of locals! The town is a good destination too - theatres, shops and restaurant all in walking...distance of Fosters. Wouldn’t stay anywhere else!!More

We had to wait an hour for our meal only to be served undercooked poached eggs (runny egg whites made the toast soggy) and a burger that was cold / partially frozen in the middle

We were 15 minutes early for our reservation and were seated immediately. But after that, service was very off. the tables around us were served and paying before we got salads. The rest of the service seemed slow and then in a rush to get...us out. Not a great experience.More

My husband and I were looking for a different restaurant when we passed Foster's Inn. It looked inviting, so we decided to eat dinner there. The service was outstanding, from the frequent refills of my water glass to the enthusiastic descriptions of the food. The...meal was well prepared, served attractively, and delicious. Make sure you leave room for dessert, you will be glad you did. All in all, a very special meal.More

Over the years we've visited several of the restaurants in Stratford before or after visiting the theatre, and we've settled on Foster's as our favourite. The prices are reasonable and the food is excellent. The four of us (our friends are Stratford locals) had an...unhurried visit with just enough attention from our server to make the evening very pleasant. I've read other reviews commenting on the difficulties of timing of meals, but we had no problems and each of us, with different entrees, thought his or her meal was the best! We will definitely be back at Foster's!More

Eleven of us arrived for our 6 pm reservation in a timely fashion June 13, 2022. Our drinks orders were taken within about 15 minutes and our meal requests were taken. By 7 the parents of a young diner informed the waitress that their daughter...had a dance lesson at 7:30 and she needed to have her meal. Her hamburger arrived and her father had to leave to take her to the appointment. The rest of us were not served until 7:50. My lambburger was overdone and tasteless and the dressing was missing from my Caesar salad. Our server never asked if any of us wanted dessert or coffee after the main. We were told that this delay was because the kitchen was short a chef. We should have been forewarned about this when we arrived.More

Nice atmosphere and a very friendly waitress, we had the front window seat in the sun. I ordered the pasta special which was good unfortunately was missing the shrimp which was added very quickly. A enjoyable evening after all.

Every time I order Cobb salad for pickup for 15 to 20 minutes, I end up waiting another 20 minutes after arriving. No apologies ensue. In restaurant service is generally very good.

My husband & I randomly stopped at Fosters Inn on our way home from a holiday. I ordered the daily pasta special, “Singapore Pasta” with shrimp which was full of veggies & shrimp in a delicious homemade sauce. My husband ordered the chicken linguine pasta...with lots of spinach & cherry tomatoes in a lemon cream sauce. He loved it. Friendly, efficient service, good portions, delicious taste. Will definitely be back!More

Located steps from the Avon Theatre Fosters is known for its steaks. Having said this all the entrees are amazing. You can’t go wrong eating at Fosters. The decor is very modern and makes you feel comfortable. The service is fast and friendly.
