This place is one of a kind! Perfect food, amazing staff, and a welcoming atmosphere! Jim and Ramona have really made this place the best place around. I have been a customer my whole life and will continue to eat here for as long as I can. Perfect for everybody, you won't be disappointed.

My family stopped for breakfast and found the location’s appearance to be unique and definitely suited to its surroundings. The restaurant has been there for a number of decades. We unfortunately had issues with the length of time it took to get our breakfast and after a lengthy wait, found it to be average and certainly not worth the amount... More

My wife and I stopped into The Craftsman Restaurant just a little South of Bancroft yesterday for dinner as it was recommended to us by one of our clients in town. It is such a cozy place and very inviting. Ramona and Jim, the owners, introduced themselves to us and we ordered our meal. The service by Janet was terrific... More

This restaurant is located just south of Bancroft, Ontario on Hwy 28. It's a favourite of ours as it's close to home and the food is always great. You get good sized portions and the wait staff are very friendly! The decor is a bit tired, but there are many genuine artifacts located on the walls. Also, there is a... More

I'm a meatatarian and enjoyed the burger special, but my vegan daughter was totally impressed with several interesting menu items . She had the wrap, and swears that it's better than any vegan dish that youre likely to find... More

The decor in this restaurant is eclectic and interesting. The food is what you would expect in a diner but a diner that knows what it is doing. The burgers are imaginative and delicious. The service is friendly and prices are very reasonable.

The Craftsman restaurant is a local fixture. With this being a resort area the restaurant is closed for several months over the winter. The food is always good with better than average portions. The staff are friendly and provide excellent service. This is an old restaurant with a tired but comfortable interior. The main dining area is replete with antiques... More

My husband and i were in bancroft on business and could NOT find a good place to eat. We were about to give up when we decided to try this place and wow wow wow. First of all it looks like nothing on the outside. You walk in and you see a busy place and are greeted by 3 happy... More

Our group of 12 arrived at 10am having been advised that they open at 9:30 but would need time to get the kitchen ready and they set aside a large table for us. The place is filled with interesting bric a brac from pioneer times and we felt very much at home. Servers were fast, friendly and helpful and menu... More

Great atmosphere. Down-to-earth. Hearty meal. Incredibly friendly service. We felt at home from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Would definitely eat here again when visiting the area.
