Ok, love the fries and the salads and the ambience of the place. We have tried breakfast and lunch here and found lunch to be the best value and love the patio in season, of course. Excellent soups and the burgers are good as well. I like their frites. Breakfast was ok, but overpriced for what it was, so we... More

Our evening spent at Foster's Inn was an outstanding experience! Starting the evening off with a couple cocktails at the bar, served to us by a very vibrant and friendly bartender turned into an incredible meal in the dining room. Everything from the seriously awesome caesar salad and the roasted parsnip and apple soup to start, followed by a grilled... More

Foster's has excellent breakfasts - a step up from the standard diner without getting overly foodie. Standards, plus some less usual offerings. Lunches are good, and they are justifiably proud of their steaks. Less expensive and less pretentious than the higher end restaurants in Stratford (Bijou, Keystone, Bruce, Mercer), excellent value for money, and very good service.

I know that when I come here, I will always have a great dining experience and that the food will be delicious as well as the wine being plentiful and excellent. Great place for outstanding service and great food.

The family was in Stratford on Sunday and decided we needed real food before heading back home. Many of the restaurants were closed, but we found Foster's Inn open at 8pm. Not many people were in the restaurant at the time - ordinarily a worrisome fact. We were seated as old friends and informed that the kitchen had run out... More

What a delicious lunch. 3of us shared 3 delicious and large appetizers, large green salad and I dessert. They were fabulous. Succulent crab cakes, fantastic type of gnocchi filled with fresh local ricotta and tender calamari. Very reasonable also. Easy drive to the theatre

Great service, massive burgers and fun, all inclusive atmosphere. Something of an unofficial 'gay' venue.

Tenderloin is the best, good wine and beer selection, very friendly efficient staff. Try it once and you will go back again.
