Amazing breakfast, fun atmosphere, friendly staff and the tater tots are to die for!! I had the Eggs Benny with smoked salmon and it was incredibly delicious! Most breakfast dishes come with their tater tots - seasoned to perfection, they are a must try with...your breakfast.More

Date of visit: August 3, 2021 During road trip through Prince Edward county, we stopped for a quick bit of Lunch at the Vic Drive In. This restaurant has all the trappings of the retro style drive in. Classic burgers, totss and shakes (and similar...menu items). They have a lovely covered outdoor seating area which is perfect in the summer, and especially during covid. You place your order when you enter and they deliver to your patio table. The food is good - typical diner food. Plus some additional flavour options that elevate the menu items. The cost is reasonable - but possibly a bit higher than expected. The food is good - although I am nota huge fan of tater tots. I know some people enjoy them. but perhaps fries would be a good addition.More

Really good food and fun atmosphere of an old-time diner. Their signature tater tots were a hit with all of us. The hot dogs were very good even without the buns!

A go to place in Picton ,the VIC , its a replica of an old diner and is pretty cool.With burgers n shakes and finger foods the younger kds like the vibe and its like going back in time ! The terrace is spacious enough...and the service was ok and the food is ok not great but a cool place to try ! I think the tatertots are the big seller here and thats what everyone orders as a side . Shakes were good also.More

Lots of staff and owner very diligent. Good selection on breakfast menu. Patio had an issue with wasps but they moved us inside and he went immediately to Home Hardware to buy a spray as 4 traps were couldn't handle the amount. We had everything...from the Daddy breakfast to children's pancake and it was cooked to order, fast service and I'd go back.More

There is nothing not to like about this place. It’s very good and filling. Also, there is a lot of option.

I don’t know how you can screw up breakfast but apparently you can. I run a food blog and have been to many places for breakfast and have to say this is the worst. We ordered the bacon and eggs and avocado toast. Not sure...how you screw up bacon and eggs but it had no flavour. The avocado toast was basically a garlic avocado spread. Absolutely horrible. The pancakes tasted like a mixture of sour cream and Philadelphia cream cheese. Again not sure how you can screw up eggs and pancakes. The coffee was absolutely watered down and piping hot as if it had been reheated over and over again. You have to pre-pay for the food before you see it and some people even tip before as there is a tip jar at the cash register at the front. Food comes out in take out containers and there is absolutely no one checking on you after the food is dropped off at your table. Horrible food and not so great service. Don’t even wanna go back to try out the lunch or dinner. Don’t waste your time going to this establishment and for those that gave five star reviews I’m not sure where else you’re eating.More
