As usual, the food was good. Good service, decent atmosphere but, it is starting to get a bit old. I think it is time to do some up dating with menu and décor. A little more variety on the menu would make me come more often,..both main dishes and appitizers. The appies were the same old, but still tastey, with... More

The last time we've been there was a bout 5 years ago. We decided to go there at the spare of the moment and we were glad we made that decision. We had no reservation and the place was busy so we sat at the bar. We didn't mind it at all especially when the food and the service was... More

Wife and I went for my birthday. Service was fast but wait staff not overly friendly. Ordered 2 shrimp cocktails for appetizer and they had only enough for one. Apparently big holiday lunch crowd was the reason. If your restaurant is named after the appetizer, you shouldn't run out! We had pasta and it was good but overall feel the... More

In whitby the only restaurant with predict able quality is the keg. But since it is always over capacity we decided to try here. It was good for whitby. Hostess was excellent although the server seemed a bit overwhelmed and forgetful. The food was good for dinner but think chatter Pauls is better. Atmosphere was good but for value and... More

This place has been a top spot in Durham for years and yet it never gets old. The food is always creative and always great. They might just offer the best service in Oshawa. Keep it up Wanda.

Six of us went for my son-in-law's birthday. We had never been before but had heard good things about the restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised. Great atmosphere, great service and the best and most delicious food. There is something for everyone from seafood to steak, to chicken, to pasta and even vegan meals which they will modify from their current... More

Very nice cozy restaurant in Oshawa, service is always great, the menu isn't large which I like so you get everything fresh.

We decided to go out for dinner to see how an old friend was doing. We had been to Shrimp Cocktail several years ago a few times with my parents but vaguely remember it. We found the menu to be rather small but did order the special and a salad for me. Food was good. Service was excellent!
