Nice day for a Patio

This was my first time at this restaurant and have went due to the great comments I have heard. The food was good and the staff was friendly. I would go again.

This is a favorite location for business hour lunches. You'll need a reservation to get a table, especially come patio season. The menus also clearly outline gluten free options, and the servers always are knowledgeable about the ingredients in the specials.

Like Waldo's in Byron, they fitted foam rubber under every chair and table making a dramatic reduction in noise an annoying part of eating out....take this advice and you will retain customers

We have been to the church key 3 or 4 times. The food is fresh, portions good (we have never gone hungry), the service is very good too. The owner generally pops over to say hi. Nice atmosphere. It is smaller but they have an area to put together tables for larger groups. Fun for an evening downtown.

It is in the heart of downtown. The food is excellent a service is professional and kind, and the milieu is just very pleasant.

The servers were standing around discussing their personal lives quite loudly. We were served luke warm water and when we asked for lemon slices they did not arrive. Our server did not return to ask how our meal was at any time. We were seated at the very back of the restaurant under a dirty outside window with cobwebs hanging... More

It seems I'm going against the majority here. Been here twice in the past 2 months and both times the meal was just so so. Why? I had a sandwich made with focaccia bread, well the bread was cut to thick and must have been a couple days old as it was to dry to eat. It's a very busy... More

The Church Key has some of my favourite things. The burger is one of them. Perfect crust on the outside, juicy on the inside, and so tasty. The accompanying fries/chips are traditionally excellent. The menu has some of my other favourtie things as well; Salmon Wrapped Scallops, Corned Beef & Cabbage, Fish & Chips, Beef Cheek Pot Roast. The daily... More

What a lovely surprise....was not expecting such a wonderful dining experience!!! Being pescetarian, I didn't anticipate a lot of selection for me at a pub, but I was wrong...just ask and they provide you with an entire vegetarian menu. Additionally they had lovely selections on their regular menu ... I chose the Trout Risotto and it was exceptional!!! We also... More
