Very quaint little place with unique and beautiful antiques around the place. Great history as well behind it! Food was incredible. My wife had a special called the Aussie Burger and I had different burger and we both ordered the homefries. We were totally stuffed by the time we finished. The food was very very good and we highly recommend... More

We've never had a bad meal at the Craftsman. They usually have 2 specials. I had the liver and onions and my husband had the hot hamburg. There is always plenty of food. The pumpkin apple bread pudding was excellent.

My family rented a cottage near Bancroft for a few weeks in July and I was so, so happy to find this place. The service was great and the staff was easily able to answer questions about gluten free menu items and substitutions they had available (gluten free bread, buns, home fries etc). My son & husband loved their food... More

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

It was like walking in to 1963, but in a good way. Excellent fresh food, generous portions, fast and friendly service. 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
