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

When you are hungry for breakfast - this is THE PLACE to go. While the interior has done little changes over the last 25+ years that I have enjoyed the food here, the menu has improved, the prices are GREAT and the Service is Fantastic. I remember going there to find then inside decorated in somewhat of a castle like... More

I've been here 3 times...once with the old owners (it was good then!!!) and twice with the new ones. Not impressed, will never go back. The new owners are so snotty and they act like they are doing you a favor being there. The food is good so its a shame they are not friendlier. The first time we went... More
