Last night was our first but not last visit to Chubby's Restaurant in Hoards Station. The owners Mike and Amy met us when we arrived to scan our vaccine certificates as required by government rules and the whole process was painless. A hint for for...you if you are going to attend take the time to print a hard copy so it is so much easier for the people who have to check them. The food was excellent and it is endless, started with soup, salads main course last night was black Angus Beef and honey garlic ribs, followed by coconut cream pie, a few coffees throughout the meal. I grew up in my fathers restaurant and this was an excellent venue for us.. It is about a forty minute drive from Belleville so closer for Trenton, Stirling. Campbellford etc. Reservations are required and they are only open on Friday Saturday and Sunday nights for two sittings one at 5 pm and one at 6 30 PM. so take yourself out for a nice evening to an amazing restaurant you will not be disappointed.More

This is a great place to go for a weekend dinner with friends and family or just you two. The food is always great with home cooked flavours and filling portions. Staff are friendly and responsive. Excellent choice and quality.

We stopped at this restaurant for lunch with a bus full of people. They have delicious salads, soup, home made buns and the roast beef was great. Recommend stopping at this family style restaurant. Desserts were also delicious, many varieties of pies and cake.

for a restaurant that is only open 3 days a week - they do amazing home cooked meal - price is average - same as you would pay for a restaurant downtown - buffet style salad bar which next to the soup is the only...thing you help yourself to - the folks serve the hot mail choices and the dessert. OMG the deserts - must try the chocolate cream and rhubarb pineapple - definitely found a new family placeMore

Yesterday was the second time we went to Chubby's with our group of about 30 people. Once again, fast friendly service and the buffet food was a great selection to choose from: lots of salads, soup, roast beef, ribs, potatoes and veggies were delicious. And...the assortment of desserts....been a long time since I have enjoyed REAL banana cream pie, with slices of real banana. The service was great, helpful waitresses always on the go, keeping water glasses and coffee/tea cups full and used plates off the table. Even their well water tastes great.You have to eat here !More

Soup tureen was empty when I finally got through the lineup. I asked for it three times and I never did see them refill it. I guess there is only one allotted per seating. Choice of shake and bake chicken or roast beef so tough...you could hardly chew it. The silverware provided was cheap quality and would not cut the meat without a great deal of effort. Was there for Mother’s Day and thought they might do something extra. Apparently not.More

Today my husband took me on a date and we went to Chubby's Restaurant. It was the first time we had been there since the new owners took over and it won't be the last! The roast beef and pork roast were so tender, the...gravy....yum! And those desserts and salads were over the top. Also had the tomato Macaroni soup (a favourite of mine) and it didn't let me down. Hubby and I were more than pleased with the food, the service and our waitress, Cindy. I had to tell the owner what a pleasant dinner we had and that we would NOT be strangers any more. Thank you for being wonderful hosts and for giving us a truly good meal.More

I've been to many places in the area to eat.... Some forgettable, most average, and a few that really hit the mark. I have lived around the corner from Chubby's for a few years now and just had the opportunity to sample their country buffet...style restaurant a couple of weeks ago. I had been apprehensive as I had heard the owner was kind of a grumpy sort that would comment if he felt that you have had enough. I was happy to find out that it had changed hands and the new owners, although part of the same family, are great hosts. I was quite impressed that just about everything offered was scratch made. They had roast beef and ham on the buffet that night for their proteins. The roast beef looked like it was too well done for my liking but it was very tender and moist and I quite enjoyed it. There were many salads that were available, some wicked types such as the jelly salad which is really more of a desert but very good. Dessert was home made pies with ice cream.... Get there early as the types are varied but run out quickly. My only complaint was that they were slightly underdone but still good nonetheless. A big plus was the fact that the owner rides a Harley... Lead to an enjoyable conversation about him trying to start a bike night there, I would definitely be on board for that. The food is good, you can tell that the owners put their all into the place.... Will be frequenting regularly for sure.More

Such a delicious dinner! Incredibly generous servings of REAL comfort FOOD. They had me at homemade soup, and it just got better from there. Had a lovely time out thanks to the friendliest of staff who made us feel welcomed. Thank you, and we'll be...back next year.More

As I sat and had dinner with my husband and friends I thought this is just like having dinner with my mom and dad (the roast beef was way better though, sorry dad). It occurred to me that if you've lost your parents or your...grandparents and you miss Sunday dinners you used to have, come here. Comfort food on every level with kind and helpful staff. I don't recall ever having better roast beef in my life and I consider myself a well-travelled "foodie". The coffee was also delicious. If I had to give constructive criticism I would say improve the pie crust only because my mom makes the best pie crust in the world. Also what I appreciated was the cleanliness. Cannot wait to return.More
