Upscale Dining - Go without kids

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

We have been going to the Charcoal (off and on) for 30 years and we really love it nowadays. Some of the same menu items as The Keg restaurants but lots of others too and we prefer the atmosphere at the Charcoal. We had prime rib and a New York strip steak; both fabulous. Service was great. Yes, expensive so... More

We were staying at the Radisson and decided to go to Charcoal since it was right next to it and were not disappointed! When we entered we were kindly greeted and seated right away. Our server was Michele and she did a fabulous job of recommending food and drinks. The steak here is amazing!! Charcoal is a great dining experience,... More

We went here with two of our kids while staying in Kitchener. They were fantastic with the kids! As soon as we ordered they came out with a veggie and dip plate for my daughter. My son has severe allergies and cannot eat so I asked for straws for him to play with. Everything was delicious. My husband had a... More
