Great breakfast spot!

We ate at Russell Williams for breakfast. The breakfast special - eggs, bacon, home fries, toast, and tea/coffee was delicious. The portion was perfect and my eggs were cooked to specification. Our waitress had the most soothing voice and pleasant demeanor. The restaurant is always full and the... read more

Dinner seems to have a different standard. Liver was burnt, pogo burnt, coleslaw was watery. They do have all the breakfast cooked perfectly.

Ate at this restaurant after a morning at the Royal Botanical Gardens. The all day breakfast is great. We particularly liked the Greek & vegetarian omelettes. One of us liked the home fries and another thought they weren't fried enough. The classic clubhouse and the hamburger were okay. It was a good choice for lunch.

Came in for dinner on a Friday evening with family (3 adults and a child). The service was quick, efficient and the server was so friendly. The adults all had the Liver and onions which was excellent. Our child had the kids burger which was good as well. I would definitely come back to try other dishes, but next time... More

Visiting the area and dropped in for a quick meal. Reasonable prices and the food was alright. Burgers were great! It is a bit dark and could use a touch up but don't let that scare you away. Staff were perfectly attentive.

This place served us two wonderful meals just like home😃. My husband was almost scrapping the gravey off the plate and I joked with... More

This place advertises up front that it's been there since 1932 or something and it shows. The decor is strictly 40s diner, and the waitstaff is ornery and sarcastic. I loved it. The food plentiful and cheap and pretty fast, the coffee is hot, black and refilled often. More food than most can eat for 12 bucks.

This place is a relic of the past but it's extremely popular with a busy parking lot and sometimes lineups at the door. A wide ranging breakfast menu as well as other meals. Not exciting or what you could call gourmet, but reliable plain cooking.
