My roast beef dinner was unattractively presented, slopped onto a plate that was not even dinner size. The The almost too generous portion of meat was passable but drowned in thick tasteless gravy. The roast potatoes were clearly roasted but equally clearly had been sitting around for too long. The veggies were limp and overcooked. The Yorkshire pudding was excellent... More

My husband's daughter chose to make a reservation at Mark's Finer Diner for Sunday breakfast buffet. It was our 1st visit at this new location and we weren't disappointed with the food, staff, service, price and decor. There are interesting fun signs and artifacts on the log cabin walls. Mark is a very friendly happy chef who makes it a... More

What to do on a very wet Sunday in late June with relations (both foodies) over from the UK? Mark's Finer Diner is the answer. Awesome brunch which defies value. But the main draw is the entertainment cooking your omelettes. Strutting, scowling but a man on a mission...Mark is THE man. Seriously, I have never had a better brunch. I... More

We had a great server - upbeat and attentive, and we enjoyed looking at the interesting 'faux-cottage' decor. The food was fine, but nothing special. My yorkshire pudding was very dry, and dark brown, unlike the eggy, pillowy yorkshire pudding clouds of my youth (and even now available as PC products at the grocery store), All in all 'A' for...

We stopped in after many hours of driving to head up to the cottage. Like to try different places other than the franchaise places. We were greeted with very friendly staff. Service was great. The breakfast buffet we chose....Eggs benedict and wafffles and omelettes and eggs made to your liking. Bacon, saugsage, ham, crosissants, fresh fruit, toast, muffins etc. The... More

Went here for Father's day as Muddy's was lined up out the door. My burger was dry and my wife's souvlaki was overcooked. Service was decent but the food left a lot to be desired. Will not go back.

Stumbled across Mark's Finer Diner while on a Sunday drive through the Peterborough region and was glad we stopped. We had no idea that the place was serving a Sunday Brunch and was pleasantly surprised on how good it was. The selection was plentiful and the custom made omelets were huge and delicious. The staff were friendly, but you have... More

I don't usually do these reviews. I usually just read them, but I saw one the other day that was so different from my experience, I had to write this. I have been going to Mark's for around 7 years and have had the onion soup many many times. It has always been delicious. Dark dark broth and huge intense... More

I can't get to Mark's very often but when I do it's always a treat. There are not too many diners in Ontario where you can get a really good home cooked meal and that's what you get at Mark's. If you are looking for high end fancy dining there are lots of places in Toronto but for good old... More
