Went there for the first time in a very long while and the waitress my friend and I had was very rude, I couldn't believe it. I have never and will never go back. Besides the point it was way over priced. Horrible I can see from other reviews people feel the same. The service was appealing. How... read more

This place hasnt changed in years, many years. The booths are old, the decor is dated, but who cares because the food is fantastic. I have had breakfast all over the City, this is hands down the best place. The food is fresh and delicious, the service is great. I have been at least a half a dozen times in... More

Posting this again as somehow it got deleted... I ate at The Lancer while I was waiting for my car at the tire place next door. This place has never been my favourite for many reasons, but I gave it another shot since it was close and I didn't want to walk far in the cold. I walked in, server... More

I have lived in Merritton my whole life and have always came to the lancer for my greasy breakfast on a Saturday or Sunday morning. Everyone knows this isn't a pretty diner, they don't focus on interior. The food is great and the home fries are the best. However, the service from the waitresses have become so horrible I refuse...

Finally had a chance to try out The Lancer on a weekday, as it is usually packed on the weekend. The food was decent breakfast food and for the most part enjoyable. Sadly, the bacon was barely cooked and the service was very slow (despite it being not very busy). Other than that, I don't really have many complaints. Prices... More

This was a regular hangout with friends back in the 70's. Food and service were good, nice place to relax. Not any more. Met an old HS buddy back to StKitts for the first time in over 25yrs. We went in for a nostalgia lunch. All that was good were the memories. It was just plain BAD all around! This... More

I have been to Lancers for their outstanding breakfast many times on my visits to St. Catharine's in Ontario Canada. Each time both the food and the service were good. Based on that, I took my six guests there for breakfast on my latest visit. After determining that sitting outdoors would prove too hot, we moved inside and were shown... More
