Ate at Gertie's 3 years ago and loved it. Stopped by again on our way through Peterborough, and we weren't disappointed. Very friendly and quick service. Club sandwich was tasty with crispy fries. Great time with great friends. Glad to see Gertie's is still going strong. Will go back for sure.

I was a bit worried going here b/c reviews seemed split. Decided to go and find out for myself. You have to watch as it is not well signed. It is just east of Aylmer on Hunter across from the Kettle Drum restaurant. The food was very good - not cheap but not terrible. Service was very good friendly and... More

Every time we go there, we are not disappointed. The food is great and so is the atmosphere. Always busy. Great service. We have had many items from the menu. Our favourites are warm salad and the meatloaf! Excellent.

I asked the waitress, what is your specialty ... she named a few entrees that sounded and delicious and then I asked about the Burgers. I love a mean burger that is fresh, delicious and the real deal! She recommended The Primal Burger and she was right on the money! That burger was hands down the best burger I ever... More

We had a lovely dinner at Gerti's. I was expecting a pub from the exterior, but it is more upscale, beautiful shining wood, friendly, warm staff, good service and great food. This might be our new favourite Peterborough restaurant. Price was reasonable, not inexpensive, but good valule. The ribs are great - a little different, and falling off the bone... More

A friend said it was a great place to eat with good prices. The seats were nice and the atmosphere seemed good, but I was disspointed. After we ordered, it took 45 minutes for the food to arrive, and not once did the waitress check in with us. The Gnocchi was this sweet gooey mess of BBQ sauce and tomatoe... More

Great specials, solid tasty menu with something for everyone! Lunch is best for a more business breakout session or just meet up with friends. Night time more geared to a pre night out great meal.

Food was excellent, service was awesome. Booths are too small, musty smell in restaurant and overpriced. Location is ok.

We went in to get some dinner. The menu had tons of options. Our server was awesome we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The cheese cake was also to die for. We never get dessert anywhere and when we saw this come out it couldn't be helped. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

I have been coming to Gerties for many years now. It offers the perfect atmosphere during the summer on their patio. Sit on Hunter Street and people watch, or sit on the back patio that offers a more intimate feel. Last night we sat inside at one of their large booths. What I like about Gerties is that there are...
