I stopped with a friend on December 13, 2021 for lunch. I asked if there was a menu option (alternative to buffet) and was told "yes". There is NO MENU option as such. What you get is a card to check off a main course...item and two sides. Large and small meal choice ($18 and $25) so one would expect a pretty good meal (Note I had eaten there before COVID.). The meal was pathetic for the price. The "fish" were similar to chicken nuggets in size and only got about 6 or so. The "fresh veggie" option was a small bowl of shredded turnip and a few carrot slices on top. I regret not taking a picture because you are likely to find this review unbelievable. Back in the pre-COVID days the food was great. Not now. My friend's meal was slightly better in that he got two large-ish sausages and pile of mashed potatoes. If you insist on eating there, pay for the buffet, more than $30 per person. At least you will be able to get a decent amount of food. The service was OK, from a young, unsmiling server.More

Several days ago I sent a private message to the management about my experience at Pebbles on December 7, 2021. I hosted a dinner for close friends who live in Mount Forest. Pebbles is the only decent sit down restaurant in the area and we...have dined there several times before. The buffet is basic home cooking and the staff are very pleasant and attentive. On this Tuesday evening I discovered that most of the offerings were leftovers from the weekend. The cheddar cauliflower was great, but the salad bar was sad and dry. The main course buffet included dry turkey (in a turkey broth), stringy roast beef, and breaded ( I assume deep fried chicken parts). I chose and drum stick and found it to be pink inside…not done. One bite was enough…andI did have stomach issues in the following hours. The deserts were definitely old. I chose the chocolate peanut butter pie…looked at it and was going to put it back, but with Covid, since I had touched it, I kept it and added a desert square. The pie crust was totally sodden and liquid was running on the plate and the pie filling had an1/8th inch dry crust on it. The desert square was tasty but was dry from age on it’s surface. The website promises a quick response to comments to the manager, but I am still waiting. I am so disappointed that there has been no response. I wanted to treat my close friends to dinner but this was no treat. Sincerely, Ray PattersonMore

The food and service are always great here, gotta try the broasted chicken, meatloaf, ribs and roast beef! They have a rewards program too so you can get coupons for savings on future visits. Covid protocols are followed, hand sanitizer and/or gloves are used at...the buffet. Thanks to the staff at Pebbles for providing a great dining experience!More

We're s-o happy PEBBLES FAMILY BUFFET is again ... we've missed the delicious meals we've been able to share with family and friends. Wonderful BROASTED CHICKEN and RIBS are at the top of ouf favourites at PEBBLES, but the SOUPS, SALADS, ENTREES and of course...the decadent DESSERTS make for a wonderful dining experience at PEBBLES. We;ve often had take-out meals too, and the quality is always top-notch. We'd encourage folks travelling north on Hwy. #6 near Durham to take advantage of a wonderful meal at PEBBLES!

Everything is great with variety on the buffet, cleanliness and friendliness of the staff. We usually go for the lunch but have also enjoyed the dinner menu which has more items to choose from.

We were staying at an Airbnb cottage 15 minutes away, and our hosts recommended Pebbles Restaurant. My husband and I are not big buffet fans, but we have to admit Pebbles Restaurant felt like Mum’s or Grandma’s cooking! Homemade taste! Service was impeccable, and Saralynn,...our delightful server was awesome. If we weren’t living three hours away, we’d be there more often! For our first time, let’s just say, it will not be our last! We WILL be back! Tip: DO try the grilling station: steaks were amazingly scrumptious! Do be aware though that this is an unlicensed establishment… Worth going just for the amazing food and service!More
