This place used to be fantastic with beautiful food and a varied menu along with some lovely home bakes. Service was good and the place had a great ambiance.

No idea where this American Diner idea has come from but the sooner it is back to the previous set up the better! Hugely disappointing!

This is mirrored by many friends in the area, I really hope they take note of the feedback otherwise I fear for the place!

What's happened to this place! Food used to be great with a wide selection menu. Although expensive it was decent food, with service. Now, there is no service what's so ever and the menu has around 8 items for mains, £2.50 extra, yes extra for chips, coleslaw etc. I ordered pork belly, it was cooked terribly, the cracking was impossible to chew as it was burnt to a crisp. £2.50 for a can of Coke, which said not for resale, multi pack can. Kids had hotdogs, clearly from a tin, with a rock hard micro defrosted finger bun which cost £4 each.
We had to get our own drinks from the fridge and our own forks and knifes and sauces. Being sat in the conservatory part we didn't notice the condiment table at the front and neither of the staff cared to point this out.
Every meal was served in grease paper that turned soggy.
Terrible service, the girl could try to smile, it wouldn't crack her face, honestly!
We left feeling ripped off. Will never be back and will never recommend this sham of a so called restaurant.

We have loved Gadies for years and had two lovely lunches at the end of last year. Now its self service - including getting your own drinks from the fridge which would have been fine if they had told us! Menu all-American and very limited and they had run out of 3 out of maybe 8 items? Plus each meal comes without any accompaniments and each side costs £2.50 No soup, sandwiches, brunch or salads. Food took forever to come and then you have to get your own cutlery etc and our table was a safe? What's that about?! Very odd, very disappointing.

Having moved out to Insch a couple of years ago from Aberdeen we have used Gadie's on a regular basis and have never been let down. Great food and atmosphere and the friendliest staff you could ask for make staying out here feel like home.
