Pleasantly surprised

Not just another hotel restaurant. My wife had the stuffed chicken breast. The best she has had in a very long time. I had the pork medallions very good with awesome veg. Not frozen ! We definitely stay at the Best Western Branford again and eat at Kirby's.

Coming back from Niagara falls we saw a sign on the Highway for Kirby Restaurant. We were surprised to find it was in the Best Western Hotel off of the 403. The menu was extensive and the dining area was quite. The waitress was friendly and the meals were terrific. We will definitely visit this Restaurant again the next time... More

We had the dinner buffet on a Saturday night. When we asked the gentleman at the prime rib station for rare or medium rare, he said that he had some. He proceeded to cut into the prime rib which was not even close to med rare , more like medium well. My husband is a chef, so we are no... More

This restaurant has really stepped up their game, even though it's a smaller buffet, the food is fresh and diverse. And who doesn't love a build your own ice cream bar?

Great weekend buffet. Price a bit high but the selection is good and often includes prime rib and other specialties made to order. If you can sit in the bar rather than the restaurant as you have access to the food but less of a crowd and can catch the game while you eat/.

The service could use a lot of work. Yes, they were busy, but we had four servers come to our table (which by the way was dirty and had not been wiped down from the previous diners) and ask us if we wanted coffee or tea. We ordered coffee ... and waited ... a good 15 minutes before it was... More
