Delicious food, clubhouse sandwich is pretty standard, very large portions. Also asked for a crosstrack poutine, which they happily made for me. Very delicious and fresh. Great service

The service was amazing: fast, friendly and accurate. The food was freshly prepared and tasted homemade. The décor was interesting and stuck to the truck stop theme (as did the menu).

Up until last year, around September, October, there were some issues with this restaurant to the degree I would not go there. They have since been fixed all the problems and have gone from a mediocre place to my favourite restaurant in the area. The service was very friendly and helpful. When they weren't serving, they were cleaning the place... More

We were 5 people in a group when we visited the restaurant. The staff were pissed off and rude at the fact that we had more people coming. The staff were grumpy and rude all evening. They took a long time to bring us our food and bills. The portions were tiny for the amount we spent. Overall, I would... More

Late night and needed a bite to eat. Checked into the hotel and did not want to drive so I went to Gilli's. Food was good I would say above average but not very good. Service was very good however and large portions. I would stop here again.

The decor and menu is transport trucking oriented. That is fine. The restaurant was clean and the 2 waitresses were friendly. However, the food was just okay. It wasn't very hot and many items came in packages. Our drink came in a can, our salad dressing in packets, etc. I know it was a truck stop and not fine dining... More

I lived in the area when Gilli's first opened and they were famous for serving large portions of piping hot food for a good price. However, on our last visit, the food was mediocre and not very hot and neither were the prices. If you have never been there, it is an interesting stop for the specially designed "trucker" decor...

Stopped her as weary travellers after an 8 hour drive. Noticed the parking lot was packed, so figured it must serve good food. That is an understatement - food is terrific. Well prepared, generous portions, and the service very, very polite and efficient. Highly recommend.

Fast friendly service, ample portions combined with a unique 'truck stop' atmosphere. Great food at reasonable prices! VERY clean washrooms!
