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.

My wife tried the chicken pita, it had oversized chunks of chicken in it, not very pleasing to the eyes if... More

A rainy, chilly day. Just arrived in a strange town, hungry, hotel not ready for check-in. Spotted this Main Street, store-front diner, fairly-full, and steps away. In we went. Good choice. Expected the usual diner fare, done in the usual diner way, and got exactly that. Perfectly fine burger & fries and soup and 3-decker sandwich, served promptly with the... More

My wife and I had breakfast at this restaurant last week while vacationing in Picton. We both had eggs over easy with bacon and home fries. Eggs were cooked perfectly and the bacon and home fries were crispy and not greasy. Old fashioned diner with good service.

They greet you at the door like you are an old friend. They seat you where you feel comfortable and the service is fast, accurate, and friendly. Go to Gus's when you want a great meal.

I was just there today. I asked the server if the hot turkey sandwich was "real turkey". She assured me that it was. I ordered that. She asked if I wanted gravy on the fries. I said I would, but only a little of it. My friend ordered a bowl of pea soup, fries and gravy. The food came and... More
