Good casual lunch

Fun place for a casual lunch. Wings good and fish and chips good too. Good choice of wines and beers on tap. Music was a bit noisy. Place is going to be closed for a couple of weeks for renovations and apparently will have a new menu. Worth checking out.

Went here for lunch with my family. Our food was good, my husband had the classic burger which he said was very tasty. My uncle had the fish and chips which he enjoyed. I had the chipotle chicken wrap the chicken was overcooked and hard but the fries were very tasty. The waitresses were very friendly and good they did... More

I did not like the food that much. But I liked the scenery & environment. It was alright. It is a fun thing to do when you are in downtown Galt. It is a big attraction when you are exploring the downtown area.

Stopped here for a light supper. I use to frequent this place quite a bit about a decade ago and always thought it was pretty decent. The service was fast and efficient with our drink and food order taken immediately. The menu was fairly extensive and pricey. An entree will run you at least $20 or up. I found this... More

I use to enjoy the burgers at Cafe 13 but haven't been there in years. I went recently hoping to have a delicious burger, but was disappointed. The burger was mushy and tasteless, even with the added cheese and bacon. Fries were ok and service was friendly though.

We were able to accommodate rather fussy food needs from the regular menu. Food was very tasty; wait staff busy but cheerful and attentive enough.

First time back here in several years. I liked it better before. Wife and I had Fish & Chips (it is a pub). Service was okay. We sent the plates back since the F&C were almost cold. The replacements were piping hot. Chips (fresh-cut) were a tad on the greasy side. Fish was an unusual but tasty potato crust batter.... More

Our group of six were not overly impressed with the food on our recent visit. Although the fish and chips was good, the special of the day, a stir fry was very bland and certainly not impressive for the price. The jerk chicken was spicy but poorly presented and the apple noted on the menu was a tiny piece which... More
