“Exterior looks like an out-of-business building.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

Looks scruffy and unkempt on first view, signs on both front doors do not show opening time, just a hyphen and an 11 pm closing. Not very informative. Inside could do with a proper cleaning, including walls, fireplace glass and blinds which are dirty and in disarray.
Food ok but several advertised menu items not available.
Not one of your better locations for sure and could use a visit from head office

“Really disappointed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2013

Went in for a piece of pie and tea because I was exhaused and need TLC, so figured I'd treat myself. Big mistake. Third time there an won't be going back.
This time, pregnant Hostess neglected to tell waitress she had a new table. That's forgiveable; but then, the Waitress was too slack to notice or care. Section wasn't so dark or hoppin busy that missing a person sitting at a table was reasonable. After about 20 minutes I went to find her to order. Her response showed poor listening skill, attitude, comprehension and zero empathy, resulting in disrespectul, poor attitude - she took her time: Tea was brought without any cream (kind of a simple standard), and an insincere "sorry for the wait", and no pie with the tea or thereafter. Clueless, careless, ill mannered service. Perhaps a little too comfortable in her position. No supervisor overseeing the floor to set a standard. Waitress could use a bootcamp weekend in attitude adjustment, and reality check with respect to her clearly skewed perception of middle-aged women.
Otherwise, A previous dinner there with friends was okay but nothing memorable & clearly overpriced for what was on the plate.
time, there was for lunch: service was quite slow then too; the waitress wasn't crackerjack or polished but at least she wasn't discourteous.
Won't be going back on my own, or taking anyone for dinner there again.
Food is mediocre and the service experience leaves you wondering why you spent you money on it: feeling not really ripped, but not satisfied either. Lacking in ambience and location. Just Not worth the buck.

“Good Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

Have only eaten breakfast there, but on numerous occasions. Never once had a bad meal and the service was always adequate. It usually takes about 45 minutes to an hour to get in and out, but if you want fast food, go to fast food.I would reccomend Dawson's White Spot to anyone for breakfast.

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

Service was very slow. About 15 min after taking the order I was advised that they ran out of the selected BBQ sauce for the ribs.
Caesar salad only came after reminding the waitress. As well the salad was totally drowned in dressing.
Second beer I had to ask for 3 times and it took a long time again.
Overall poor service.

Additionally I saw one of the employees stepping with shoes onto the benches to open blinds.
