A staple of KW

Hands down, this is where you take a date, celebrate life's milestones or just treat yourself when in KW. Wideman's has branched out into many restaurants in the region but this is still the flagship. Maxing food, top notch service.

Hands down, this is where you take a date, celebrate life's milestones or just treat yourself when in KW. Wideman's has branched out into many restaurants in the region but this is still the flagship. Maxing food, top notch service. If you're not feeling steaks, there's 2 other restaurants in the building. Plus weekend brunch which is phenomenal. Must eat.

Wonderful server made our anniversary extra special. The steak was terrific as was the rest of the meal. Just a classic good restaurant worth visiting to remember how good a nice steak can be.

We ate here for our 5th anniversary and it was perfect! We ordered crab cakes and calamari for apps and tenderloin for dinner, everything was soooo good, our steaks were cooked perfectly. The only thing I would suggest to the restaurant is to use real Clamato in their ceasers because they use a clamtao type juice made locally, which don't... More

Great food, pricier, but nice atmosphere. Wouldn't do with children. Went with husband, and another couple. Wait time was reasonable, and service was good.

The ribs are the best in town! A little pricey but a nice and relaxing atmosphere. Service is excellent. Have been patronizing this restaurant for 30+ years. Still exceptional!

Spent an evening with about 25 colleagues at a staff retirement dinner. Servers were knowledgeable, efficient and friendly. Food was delicious and the area we were seated in was set aside for our group only. Will definitely go again.

Great food and service always!! On a recent visit we went there with two other couples, one couple was from Mississauga and the other couple live locally. Enjoyed everything. Didn't feel rushed which was great because we don't see each other often. Would highly recommend

I had the pleasure of receiving a gift card to this restaurant and decided to go for my 2 year anniversary. I was able to make a reservation 2 days in advance and was pretty excited about. Went shopping and got all dolled up for the experience. We were seated within a few minutes of arrival and was greeted promptly... More
