Its a truck stop with truck stop food

Good portions and very good food. The wait is sometimes slightly longer than usual but only when it is full. Like most lunch hours. Worth the stop. You won't be sorry if you like this kind of restaurant. Novel interior.

Lots of selection. specials are always a good choice. service is fast and friendly on all our visits. often stop here on the way through when heading fishing and hunting. Lots of parking for Trucks and trailers. Lots of seating so you are never waiting to get in and out.

Gillies Restaurant offers a unique breakfast location ,whether travelling by truck or for breakfast meetings with colleagues. The friendly wait staff is very efficient at providing a hearty , hot meal with minimal waiting. The Truck Stop decor and trucker handles on menu selections add to the dining experience. Overall, very good value for your dining pleasure.

hamburger patty minimalistic, coleslaw barely made the grade, and fries terribly brown. This is the third time lately I have been disappointed. Use to love it, but now feel like profits outweigh product and service. Oh well.

I enjoyed myself; staff were friendly and my food came out quickly. I had cream of potato and bacon soup and a smoked meat sandwich, it was good; no complaints. Would go back after trying a few other spots.

Service We hadn't been at Gili's for a few years and, as usual, stopped for lunch on our way further up in Northern Ontario last week. We liked it because it is used to be a perfect stop for a quick tasty meal for folks on the road to a further destination. We were immediately pointed to a free table... More

I'm writing this on behalf of someone who never complains about eating out. He met some work friends there for breakfast about a week ago. They had ordered already, he ordered right away. He said 2 of them got food after about 15min and everyone else had to wait about 45min. They wondered why they heard the deep fryer that... More

we were greeted with a smile which made us feel welcomed; we had a very good breakfast at a very decent price. We have been there quite a few times and we are always happy to go back. I recommend the restaurant highly. Only one draw back: The lady who came to fill a big bunch of utensils, was not... More

Had a quick meal, this is a truck stop, not fine dining. That being said, the food and the service was excellent.
