Don't waste your time going. Service is good but everything else is less than desirable. Food is not very good. Food is acceptable but certainly not fabulous. Would not go again.

Ok, I have a thing for diners like this,,, and no surprises it was great food, the waitress was your typical no fuss don't muck me around lady which I appreciate. The food arrived quickly and lots of it. I enjoyed it that much I had breakfast there every morning I was in Picton.

My husband really wanted to try Gus's Family Restaurant. He is always looking for the next great burger and thought this may be the place...boy was he wrong! When we entered the restaurant it looked tired and in need of a good scrubbing but I kept an open mind. My husband sat down and I went to use the restroom.... More

I normally consider myself an understanding person and don't like to complain publicly about something but tonight I am making an exception. I am thoroughly disgusted by this local restaurant. Went for dinner with my husband, daughter and a friend. Server was great, funny and friendly. However my meal was another thing. I ordered the Club House and with it... More

Called whilst on a trip to the nearby cheese factory. Typical diner but prompt and friendly service with good serving portions. It is what it is - and is good at it.

Dropped in for breakfast. Simple menu not a lot of variety. Staff looked like part family, part friends that have been there for a long time. Definitely have regulars that come in for their daily regular. I ordered two eggs scrambled with home-fries and my husband had the omelette. We got through our meal - but it was more of... More

Reasonable priced diner. Service was prompt & friendly. It's obviously quite popular as the placed was filled up much during dinner on Sunday night. Food was decent. I would say it's value for money if you are up and about town with family.

Gus's Looks and feels the part but wasn't very friendly and dinner was substandard. Maybe we caught them on an off night.

This is a very unassuming Main Street restaurant that should not be missed! Gus' was recommended to us by a local Picton resident. We enjoyed fresh, quality food, (Chicken brochettes and Greek salad/liver n onions with mashed) reasonably priced. The place is spotless! Our server-Lori-was awesome and helpful with menu recommendations. Thumbs up.

I went today with my wife and daughter. Food was not very good, i had a chicken salad sandwich, tasted like they took the chicken from a can of chicken flakes and put it between 2 slices of toast. My wife tried the chicken pita, it had oversized chunks of chicken in it, not very pleasing to the eyes if... More
