My wife and I both did the beef cheek dinner for take out. We had never had braised beef cheek before, and were we ever suprised with the taste and melt in your mouth texture. The blackened carmelized brussel sprouts were a fine complement and...the mashed potatoes were done right and perfectly rounded out the meal. A five star meal in keeping with several of our other meals here in the last year.More

We both had salads and they were just … weird. Protein bowl especially just completely missed the mark. If we come back we’ll stick to the pubbier fare. Waitress forgot about our second round of drinks. Tables along an otherwise nice glass railing were jammed...in too close together.More

I gave this place a second try after a horrendous meal last year. I’m not sure why the tortilla chips have so much salt? Why has no one addressed this. They are inedible. The food, in general, is so sub par for this type of...establishment. Looking for solid deep fried deliciousness, everything is either bland or so salty we couldn’t eat it. Thankfully I ordered a Caesar salad so I wasn’t starving. The app platter was gross. Pickle chips were salty, onion rings bland (exact same as Chucks for double the price), spinach dip clearly de thawed from frozen with no flavour and weird consistency. My kid was charged an adult add on rate for a handful of sweet potato fries with her kid’s meal. And the sauce that came with (maybe garlic aeoli?) was basically watery mayo. And then there’s the wait time. A whole fiasco in the kitchen apparently, but no explanation or apology. We ordered kid chicken fingers, app platter and a salad and it took well over an hour. The party next to us waited even longer and were very kind. I would have left. The young servers are amazing. Honestly, so sweet and it’s not their fault they are serving yucky food to unsuspecting patrons. Two strikes and I’ll take my business to Paddington’s Pub going forward. How this place gets repeat business and any 4-5 star reviews is confusing.More

White Squirrel offers delicious, varied dishes for lunch, dinner, and week-end brunch at affordable prices. The view from either inside or on the extensive patio is breathtaking. Although there are several levels all areas are wheelchair accessible. Staff is knowledgeable, efficient, and professional. Our waiter,...Andy anticipates our wants and needs and delivers before we ask! Wednesday is Wing Day. It is a special treat because Dustin Sky Smith performs on the patio from six to nine.More

… for a great outdoor dining experience. Tons of space, tons of people …slow on the meal BUT the time to enjoy great friends, and conversation. More serve staff than I have ever seen in one place. Taylor was our super server, very attentive. The...recommended chicken wrap (for someone who avoids wraps) was delicious along with the wood fired pizza. Fries could have been out of the ballpark, but were a little ‘time sensitive’ … … please look my pictures to see the beautiful basket of fries. My recommendation would be to get some of server minions to back up the kitchen staff.More

The atmosphere is lovely and our server was attentive, but the pizza that I ordered was awful…far too much tasteless sauce…. I should have sent mine back but the others in our group were enjoying their meals (not pizza) and I didn’t want to be...disruptive as was otherwise having an enjoyable evening. They do have a nice wood fired pizza oven but need to provide better training for staff on how to make a good pizza.More

We showed up at 1pm on a Saturday and the place was half full. Within 15 minutes it was full. The service was excellent. There was only 3 people out front and they were all on point. Prompt, polite and the food was outstanding. I...had the garden salad with the ahi tuna add on and the tuna was great, fresh. My husband had the wagyu beef burger and fries and WOW that burger was delicious and the fries were crispy. I saw a lot of the wood fired pizzas come out and the fish and chips, the fish is huge. Can’t wait to go back. Highly recommend.More

Arrived on a Sunday and the place was busy. There are several areas in which you can be seated and as they all overlook the golf course, we chose one where it appeared to be less busy but quickly filled up. Ordered a house wine...which was palatable and looked at the menu offerings which had a nice variety but settled on the Classic Breakfast. The place was very busy and the staff tried to accommodate everyone as best they could including a large group. Apparently there is a staff member who refuses to show up on a Sunday shift - every week - which shouldn't be too difficult to let her look for employment elsewhere!! Our server was delightful and the breakfast of eggs, choice of sausage/ham/bacon and we chose the sausages which were nicely done and not greasy, choice of toast, nice hot home fries and a side of fruit which included fat grapes that were crisp in your mouth. All for $12. Observed several other diners enjoying their meals and the fish tacos looked very enticing and the pizzas from their outside pizza oven looked very tasty! We'll have them next time as we will definitely return.More

I hate to write this review, but after our experience last night it’s entirely necessary. We have been to the White Squirrel multiple times this summer in the hopes that next time will be better. We had such good experiences last summer but this year...is completely different. Last night, we waited over an hour for an appetizer and two hours for our main courses. My husband ordered his steak medium rare and it came out well done. Multiple tables around us got up and left because the service was so terrible. With the exception of one young man, the serving staff were completely inattentive and unfriendly. We did not even get glasses of water. It’s such a shame because the patio here is incredible, and we had great food and service last year. My suggestion is to teach the kitchen how to make one good steak - a good steak doesn’t need to be smothered in sauce and served with frozen vegetables. For $200, this experience was so disappointing and I doubt we will be back. I don’t know if this year’s issue is an overloaded kitchen staff, inattentive servers, a lack of serving training, or a combination of the three. I hope the White Squirrel can take this constructive criticism and find ways to improve because the setting and patio are amazing.More

I booked a group reservation for a work gathering on the patio and it surpassed my expectations. The patio is massive - has separate "areas" including a raised upper deck area that is covered and has ceiling fans (and a great view of the course!)....Menu options were plenty and service was fantastic. From the manager to the servers and hosts we were wowed by their exceptional customer service. Highly recommend!More
