Value and flavour

I haven't been here for a while, since the restaurant was taken over by the owners of Whitey's. The BLT was enormous and very good. Excellent value. Service was prompt and friendly. The wait staff remembered the person I was with, and knew his favourites.

There was a time that this was the best restaurant in Simcoe, hands-down. It has changed owners and is no longer the quality it once was. I will not return.

Fined for business meeting in the restaurant. The service was very quick and my entree salad "the Norfolk" was Devine! Served with celery bread and was all around a pleasant experience.

This restaurant used to be one of my favourites. We travelled from Brantford to come for dinner. The restaurant was almost empty yet the service was still very slow. Christians was known for it's homemade pies and now they are bought and this day there were no pies. My wife wanted something that included soup as it was cold and... More

Heard good and bad reviews and thought to stop by well in town. I wanted to try the riblets as I have always enjoyed them. I was surprised to find that they have an all you can eat sides buffet . I ordered the riblets and they came to the table with celery bread and coleslaw. I went and picked... More

We sat by the fireplace it was awesome ! Portion sizes were huge! Staff were very friendly and the owner came and asked how everything was. Great value, food, and service! I will definitely be back. See you soon!

We were there a week ago. It was terrible from start to finish. We should have turned around and walked out when we were placed at a table with table cloth stained with tomato. Restaurant is run down and not inviting. My husband ordered their buffet and "fresh -- just off the spit, chicken"!!! I ordered a hamburg and french-fries... More

Change for the worse. Not clean. Breakfast is ok, not great. Simple sandwich or the like not terrible but nothing special. Slow service. No originality.

We have been several times for breakfast and it has always been good. We have never had to wait to be seated and the coffee is always up right away with plenty of refills if needed. The food is hot fresh and good value for money. We have never been in for anything other than breakfast, but the rest of... More
