Great Home cooking but be prepared to wait.

Two or three times a summer for the last 40 years we make a cross-Ontario trip to see family and plan our trips to hit this place at supper time. It has great home cooking with an interesting choice of items, especially the daily specials. However our last experience a few weeks ago was poor as we... read more

Stopped in on way back from Ottawa as Blue Tin Roof was closed. Finding decent vegetarian options in rural locations sometimes is a challenge. They didn't have many but the Veg Burger was mix of blackbean, peas, corn and chickpeas. As I'm not vegan I had it with Monterey Jack cheese and thought it added to it perfectly. You can... More

My friends and I stopped here for breakfast one of the days we were staying at Silent Lake Provincial Park on our way in to Bancroft, and it was great! The restaurant is very charming and has it's own unique character on the inside, and the food is a can't-miss. The breakfast was good in quality and was exactly the... More

This was our second trip to the Craftsman and we were not disappointed. The first time was for dinner and this time for lunch. Service is friendly and engaging. The menu is incredibly varied from diner fare through fresh fish to vegetarian/vegan options. The decor is eclectic and adds to the enjoyment.

I had breakfast here of stuffed French toast which was great. Service is fantastic and prices are very reasonable. Dinner was equally great and service again was fantastic. Good portion sizes. Will make this my go to restaurant when I visit Bancroft again

We enjoyed another great breakfast at the Craftsman. Every time we visit, the service is excellent. The staff is always friendly, and accommodating. We are picky eaters, and because they make the meals fresh, they can keep some ingredients off our plates. We have delicious dinners there too! I'd recommend the Paudash burger, Yum! Wonderful, friendly place. Cottage Country food... More

Everything I have ever eaten at The Craftsman has been tasty and fresh and creative! I suggest you try one of the board specials (I most recently had the sweet and spicy burger. Amazing!) Everything is homemade here. The service is friendly and attentive, the atmosphere is homey and comfortable and the food is reasonably priced for good portions and... More

This place serves an excellent breakfast. We had great service too. We both had the spicy vegetarian omelet and I would highly recommend it. The marble rye toast was great too. This place is a gem and we would strongly recommend it.

From the minute we walked in to see most empty tables still uncleaned, we should have known. There were two wait staff and what appeared to be one of the owners hanging around the till area talking. After sitting down for a while, one of the wait staff finally came over to clear off the table and drop menus. My... More
