Nothing fancy, nothing lacking. Friendly service, tasty dinner, inexpensive, timely. We were just passing through from Windsor to Sarnia and this turned out to be a pleasant dining experience.

Booked a reservation ahead of time. Staff followed up the day before to make sure we were still coming, so that was nice. We were attending a concert next door, so the girl told us it would be slow getting to eat, as everyone will be there at roughly the same time. This was nice to know and we were... More

We headed out from the park to check-out what was going on downtown at the Capitol Theatre for the last Hip Concert, wait we need food - Frendz has a great outdoor patio (Wasps be damned) to fit the bill. We ate burgers, Whisky Blue and Juicy Lucy - excellent taste, perfectly cooked with fries. Server was friendly and attentive... More

This is a family owned business and it has lots of atmosphere. The food is always good and a nice selection from tapas to full meals. We love sitting on the patio when the evenings aren't too hot and we've also enjoyed listening to cool music in the summer.

We stumbled upon this place while passing through town. The music drew us in and we were not disappointed. The manager was nice and very welcoming. The menu is small which is good for those that cannot easily decide. We each ordered the Juicy Lucy burgers and they were very good. I would definitely recommend Frendz and visit here again... More
