Unique But Simple

Good food. Good service. Atmosphere is nice. Could be a bit more spacious. But alot of the unique restaurants in Peterborough are like this. Definitely a must try.

My family love this place. Always has excellent spicy food. Love that their wait staff can recommend items that have less heat for those not liking spicy food. I Love their jambalaya! Great place for friends and family to gather. Great place to enjoy after a movie downtown in Peterborough.. Busy any time of year. Make reservations especially if you... More

One of our all time favorite places to eat. Great Cajun/Creole menu for lunch or dinner with good prices and interesting beer. Often very busy so don't be in a rush. The decor and atmosphere is fabulous and the servers are attentive.

It's always a good time at Hot Belly Mamas. The Southern music-themed décor is fun, the atmosphere casual and the food really good for the price. Love the cornmeal-crusted catfish and have had pleasurable experiences with the daily specials. Staff are welcoming and efficient.

The service is always stellar, and food very satisfying to match. Being a fleming student, and seeing it's right around the corner from the bus terminal, made an awesome evening with my friends. My girlfriend tried the place for the first time and loved it. Me and my family have been here countless times, and definately recommend it to those... More

I give Hot Belly Mamas five stars for service and the atmosphere. The servers were all excellent, very attentive and quick on a busy night. The restaurant itself has great decor with plenty to look at- though it was a bit drafty up front. I love the thought of a Cajun/ Creole restaurant as I'm a fan of the food... More

This is one of our favourite restaurants in Peterborough! Blackened chicken, blackened catfish, Po'boys, hush puppies and jambalaya! Spicy, amazing and all served with Old Stone Brewery beers- it doesn't get any better than this. If you love spicy, beautiful food this is your place.

We decided to take the scenic route from Ottawa to Toronto and about 40km out of Peterborough we decided to check out our handy dandy TripAdvisor ap and see if there was anything worth stopping for. This was well worth it. We scrolled through the reviews and stuck to the popular items. Hush puppies to start followed by the blackened... More

My husband and I make a point of going to Peterborough for some item we can't buy in Cobourg, so that we can stop for lunch or dinner at Hot Belly Mamas. The Soup of the Day is always a favorite. Lots of good spice and flavour in whatever you chose. Always warm, great service and a beautiful old building... More
