Excellent food

Excellent food but looking a little old inside. Have been visiting for decades and it is time for some touch ups....... no need to touch up food though but I would have free refills for soda.

By boyfriend received raw, hamburger looking "fish" from this restaurant. It looked as though the fish had been cooked on a dirty grill. The service is mediocre at best and is in need of some serious upgrades.

I've been a frequent visitor to Simeon's Restaurant for a few years now and I must say the food is just like you'd find at home, deliciously homemade. The fish chowder is superb as well s the home-made soup and rolls.Last Sunday I was there for supper and the very large restaurant was a buzz with family and friends enjoying... More
