Fair Atmosphere and good Food!

I chose a booth and it was quiet. Enjoyed the fish and chips. The service was good. I found the restaurant relatively clean.

I thought I would take my Mum out for a little bite to eat and a change of scenery so I suggested we split the "Dewy Combination Platter" for $23.99. This is what we were given to split eating between us. 2 perfectly cooked onions rings. 5 very small chicken wings. I guess the waitress wanted to see my mother... More

Ordered country fried chicken dinner. The chicken tasted that it had been prepared for sometime and just sitting under a heat light. Not fresh for sure and the pepper gravy was lumpy and had no taste. The veggies were disgusting just in appearance, I can not believe they even plated them. I was at the restaurant at 5 pm, not...

This used to be a great place to go for a great meal. Sadly, it is very disappointing now. The quality of the food has deteriorated. We still keep going there and each time I tell my husband that it is our last visit there. I won't order a meal anymore. I am sticking with a burger. They have changed... More

Was there yesterday with a friend, we stopped in for lunch and both ordered the open faced hot turkey. Well I'm here to tell you that the turkey was cut so small and was so dry it was like eating wood. The roast potatoes were so peppery to the point where you could not taste anything else, and the service... More

I am privileged to live near this restaurant. It's located in the right hand corner of Osgoode Village shopping centre, a small centre with a bank, a Foodland, a wonderful curio shop and of course The Red Dot Cafe. Before I say more, the Red Dot is both a restaurant and a pub that also serves great food. The Cafe... More

We have eaten at Red Dot Cafe a number of times and have found that the quality of the food and the quantity of the food is deteriorating. I had soup and a taco salad. The soup was beef barley and was luke warm at best. Had a very greasy taste and feel when eaten with little to no other... More

This a popular place so make sure to reserve ahead of time or you will be waiting. Good for after sports as there is a patio out front during the summer. Expect to wait for your meal when it is busy. Some of us ordered appetizers which came quickly and they did bring a basket of bread. I had the... More

Have been here many times and have always had a wonderful experience - great staff, food and those desserts! Went for a quick bite tonight, had the daily special, calamari - delish (great sauce), then after much deliberation about which dessert to have out of their incredible selection had the snickers pie - amazing! I keep going back, and I... More
