This was the first time my husband and I have eaten at the Union Street Cafe in Berwick. Our friends recommended Union street for a saturday evening meal as they had eaten here in the past and liked the food. Asian nachos were delicious and a big hit. My husband enjoyed the union street burger and I the Annette's ham & apple panini sandwich with a side of caesar salad. I really liked the flavour of the mango chutney mayo and apple slices which turned an ordinary sandwich into a more gourmet sandwich. The caesar salad was not great, it tasted like a grocery store salad with packaged dressing. I was expecting a homemade caesar dressing and this one definitely did not taste homemade. Our friend always orders the roasted beet salad which I taste tested and would order next time. Her husband had the special, grilled salmon with mussels and shrimp.It was a huge serving which he said was very good. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. Couldn't have asked for better service.

We dropped in here for lunch and a couple of cold beers. Located on Main Street in tiny quant Berwick. We took the waitresses recommendation and started with the Far East Popcorn Cauliflower for an app. They were fabulous- so fabulous we decided to try the Asian Natchoes...both eating experiences new for us and never regretted...loved both. If ever in Berwick again,,,will drop in

The service was a little slow but it was a busy time. The place was also packed. Generally everyone else seemed to enjoy their food and the portions seem decent enough. The Berwick Chicken Bowl was a bit of a surprise and I certainly didn’t expect it to be as spicy as it was. I like spice but something was on fire. Next time I’ll just go with the fish and chips.

Would never recommend. Service was terrible - all waiters were standing around chatting. When order finally arrived ground beef was raw in burger and only got partial order of second - with no question or concern from wait staff. Wish I had read reviews before going

I've been going to the Union Street since it was on Union Street... I'm mystified by the negative reviews. Never had a bad meal there ever, and today the food and service was excellent as always. You'd have a tough time finding fish and chips done any better anywhere. Hand cut fries, flakey, moist fish in batter so crisp you could hear it. I've had other items over the years, all excellent.

My husband and I had lunch here today. Overall, our meals were very good, with the exception of the coleslaw. The coleslaw was really not good at all. When I mentioned this to our server, instead of offering a replacement, she brought more dressing. I thought this was a tacky way of trying to fix an unpleasant part of our meal. Too bad, because the rest of our lunch was great. It would have been nice, if I had been offered a small salad or even some tomato slices to replace the crappy coleslaw.

This was our first visit to the Union Street restaurant. I enjoyed the decor and it was a clean and pleasant place. Covid19 protocols were in place. Our server was pleasant and professional ... but not as prompt as I would have liked. I had the roasted beet salad, which I really enjoyed. It was tasty and huge. My husband had the wicked fries which were a disappointment ... kind of a globby mess. However, we did enjoy our visit and would probably go back, knowing what to get and what to avoid.

I feel bad posting a semi-negative review as I've had some LOVELY dining experiences here in recent years. Although, maybe they are struggling with staffing shortages - I'm not sure. It seems the prices are up (but everything is), but the quality of our meal this time just wasn't up to par. Everything was really DRY. As if it had been reheated or something. The fries were normal, but it's hard to mess those up. The burgers were just really dry! For the price, I felt we didn't receive the value. I sure hope it was just an off day. I don't want to discourage anybody from giving this place a try! Things just seemed astray this visit.

I don't often write reviews but this is a must stop. There are not enough stars to rate this restaurant and I don't say this lightly. After one visit we were joking about moving closer. Phenomenal food service and atmosphere. Great job guys my compliments to you all.

Enjoyed the fish & chips and Union Street burger, but loved the banana cream pie! The atmosphere is always serene and relaxing!

I like the food - as do my kids, but it is slightly overpriced for sure, and I've rarely had a server who didn't seem put out by having customers.

There was 5 in our party and 3 of us were new to the place. We loved it. All 5 of us enjoyed our meal very much! The waitress was very kind and patient and prompt! And knew her job!! I loved the look of the place. Very festive, and cosy. And the live music was a nice surprise. Back to the food- DELICIOUS and so full of flavor and all good sized portions! And average pricing. DEFINITELY will be back there is much more on that menu I HAVE to try.
