Wed 23rd, heading to Guelph Costco so figured we’d stop for a great lunch! And it was 👍, great service excellent food. Some say a lil pricey but hey where can you get all you can eat for the price. Especially if your a senior...an we are. Typically restaurant you pay $19.99 just for a single lunch entree. Will be going back, oh and your birthday is free can’t beat that.More

There is absolutely nothing to improve on at all. We absolutely love coming to Pebbles. It is by far my husbands favourite restaurant of all time. He could hardly wait to invite his boss and her husband to the restaurant for her birthday as it...was the same day as his own. We will come for most every special occasion that happens in our lives. Thank you so very much for always going above and beyond our imaginations for our visits.More

Friendly staff, fantastic choice of food and a clean restaurant ( including bathrooms). This is ‘eat as much as you care to’ buffet with no shortage of choices to suit everyone. Takeout is also available where you pay a reduced rate to fill your choice...of 3 different sizes of containers from the buffet. Among other things, the ‘broasted chicken’ is the best chicken I’ve ever had.More

You can't go wrong eating at Pebbles, the service from any of the girls is an awesome experience. They are so obliging and always go out of their way to make your visit something to remember. The food is delicious, but this time I was...a little disappointed with the ham... it was in chunks rather than slices which I prefer but that's just me. The flavour of all their entries never disappoints...More

We had a delicious supper with fresh salad bar and lots of yummy sides to choose from. I was impressed that you had a pumpkin cheesecake at the dessert bar taking in the Thanksgiving theme.

We stumbled upon this restaurant while driving home from a week in Collingwood. The place was probably one of the cleanest restaurant I’ve ever been in. The young ladies serving us were all polite, attentive as possible even with multiple customers, and always smiling. It’s...a Mennonite run restaurant and there are a lot of decor signs with religious quotes on them, but they are also very pretty. The washrooms have piped in music on a low setting, and that music is also religious. Again - very subtle. The food…. What can I say other than it was all delicious. I tried a bit of everything - full turkey dinner fixings, broasted chicken, ribs meatloaf, salad with home made dressings, fresh breads, soups, chili. I don’t have anything negative to say. Their dessert bar was also quite good - and their pumpkin cheesecake was worth multiple trips back to that part of the buffet. We will make a point of stopping here again, and again. The prices were, for the cleanliness of the restaurant along with the quality of the food, very reasonable and well worth the money spent. The store up front was filled with home made goodies of every kind. Also worth a stop.More

We arrived at the restaurant at 5:30 on Friday July 29. On our first trip up to the buffet there was 0nly 3 fairly large pieces of chicken in the buffet which appeared very dry as if they had been picked over for a while....I then went to the spare rib tray and it was empty but for two small pieces of ribs ( from the small end of the ribs - I took them ). I ended up eating meat loaf of which there was a half a pan left. Now I am feeling that I got ripped off. Twenty minutes later I go back to the buffet to get what I came for - Chicken and Ribs and again the chicken tray is empty except for two large pieces of dry white meat - it actually looked like the same two pieces from before. Luckily they had just filled the rib tray. My conclusion is that when you charge $28. for seniors - the meat trays should be refilled BEFORE they are near empty - they should at least be at least 1/3 full. Your manager is in charge of this problem - it should not be happening. Perhaps you should send your manager to a Mandarin Chinese Restaurant with similar prices to see how it is done properly. I must say that the staff are as courteous and friendly as reported in the other comments. All of us went to the washroom before we left and low and behold the chicken tray was full with assorted pieces and sizes of juicy chicken. Disappointment!!!More
