“Busy- They must be doing something right!”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

We've eaten here more than a few times and for the most part, found it to be satisfactory. I admit, there have been a few times that service wasn't that good, but if the food is decent, that's what really counts. Portion sizes are generous and since I'm not a coffee drinker, I can't comment on that particular beverage. On one occasion we specifically asked for a booth and were seated at an uncomfortable table with horribly hard chairs. Very disappointed that day! I would say that most of the staff are friendly and earn a respectable tip. We like the food and that's what keeps us going back.

“Basic diner”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

Breakfast is standard (although my husband really likes the skillet breakfast); lunch is better. Whatever food is on my plate, however, I will lose my appetite if the waitress asks if I'm "still workin' away on that". Please train your staff!

“Great Menu”
Reviewed 21 July 2013 via mobile

This is my 3rd time eating here when I come to town. Good size portions, great selections and price is good too. We never have time to try other restaurants since when we come to Stratford it's to watch a play. This restaurant is walking distance to the theatre and across from our hotel. Always busy which sometimes causes wait staff to forget to ask fin you want a refill when your glass is empty. Other then that no complaint about service.
