Sorry, but we had a terrible meal here. we have been a few times, and the meals have never been fantastic. It took well over an hour for our meals to arrive only to have them arrive cold. The staff are really nice though.

We have tried three symposiums and everyone of them has impressed us. We like Stoufvilles the best so far due to the service from our waiter and a nicer atmosphere

I found the place expensive for what is on offer. No craft beer on tap and wine was expensive. Better for lunch than dinner. Parking is shared with No Frills and a bank and is crowded at busy times.

We had excellent and attentive service and a great lunch from Crystal and everyone there in under 2 hours in between two basketball games. Everything went very smoothly!! Great value on the kids meals. Thanks so much!!

Cozy spot on main street Stouffville. Excellent service. Great traditional breakfast menu. Other dishes are average. Nothing fancy, just comfortable eating.
