Had the opportunity to take our friends to the Ole School Restuarant for lunch. As the title indicates, the restaurant was a school house before the owners converted it into a restaurant. The decor is wonderful with old school items, including several pictures of the Queen of England who dined there. We arrived at noon and was surprised that there... More

Have been here a few times. Very nice setting. One of those times it would be nice to get dressed up, but not necessary. A great place for a special occasion

If you are looking for a high end experience, the scoop house will give you that. But it does not come cheap. The keg is a better deal if you ask me.

Sunday Brunch was the occasion. The ambiance was amazing. The service was phenomenal, the décor was impressive. The food was simply below par. When you pay that kind of money, you expect the food to be outstanding. I was in shock when I ate the salmon. It was so dry, I almost needed a knife to cut it. Here's my... More

We were shown to our table at once, handed menus and the choices explained. We selected from the chef's daily menu which we found excellent, well prepared and served by competent staff. The seating arrangements were unusual, over several floors but easy to get to. Adequate arrangements had been made for disabled guests. We were seated adjacent to the area... More

Sunday, Sept 28th a group of us went to the Olde School Restaurant for brunch. The atmosphere was wonderful, the food delicious, the staff incredible. This has been, and will continue to be my favorite restaurant in town...and with the amount of people there, I would have to say many must agree with me as well. Love this place!

We cannot begin to say enough about our experience at this 5 star plus restaurant. We were greeted and escorted immediately upon arrival by the restaurant owner. We were given ample time to choose our cocktails and other main entree meal choices. We were NEVER rushed. We thoroughly enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and the opportunity to dine at our leisure...

One evening my husband and I were travelling from Hamilton to Waterloo during a very heavy downpour. At about 5.50pm we happened by chance to pass a building and stopped to check it out. This was the Olde School Restaurant. Having checked out the menu we decided to stay for a meal. What a great decision! The restaurant was pretty... More
