The jalapeño soup was excellent. We then had the roast chicken which I think is he best thing in the menu. We also... read more

Gertie's is such a reliable restaurant. I have never had a disappointing meal there, and I've eaten there many times. I definitely recommend it.

Just came back from dinner on the patio and it was poor. After 5 years of going off and on to Gertie's for birthdays, afternoon lunches and taken friends there tonite was a deflating experience ( Friday,July 24 ). The prices have gone up 20-30% and portions have gone down. Especially on an easy thing like Nachos ( with chicken... More

A great little get-away place. Small, but plenty of room to enjoy an evening out on the town or a great tasting meal.

Spent a beautiful, sunny afternoon on the back patio nursing a few beers before sampling their kitchen delights. Very nice atmosphere, staff very friendly...I liked the black iron and old brick...very cozy. I ordered the Mexican hot dog which was a sausage in a bun with Chile sauce,etc served in a bun with a salad on the side. Very good.... More

I went here this evening with a group of 5 other ladies. Drinks were great, and overall food was really good. Only one person wasn't happy with her vegetable pasta dish (said it tasted 'blah'), but she also said it was the only time she hasn't been happy with the food here. Potato skins and onion we shared were delicious.... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the food at Gerti's with 5 girlfriends. Service is good and the food is served hot with very plentiful portions. Like the choice of 1/2 fries - 1/2 salad with the meals. Have been here quite a few times and have always had a tasty meal.

This would work out perfectly. Our server came over promptly took a drink and starter order , our drinks arrived very quickly and our... More

I have been coming to Gertie's for many years. My sister and I started coming and we love the atmosphere and the food is so delicious recently my daughter had the warm beet salad and she raved about how good it was! My husbands favourite is the beef aujour sandwich. I always get something different and it is always excellent.... More
