have had much better fish & chips almost everywhere else we have had fish & chips. Fish was very greasy, but batter crisp and fish was okay. Chips were the worst I've ever had at a restaurant with fish & chips. They were not fried at a hot enough temperature - not crisp on the outside. Serving size was fine,... More

Had dinner out with my husband the other night and decided to try the Beef Dip sandwich. It came on a lovely fresh garlic roll but the meat looked literally like old shoe leather, as black as can be and with a rather funky taste. I had a couple of bites and then had my better half try it and... More

We were staying at the Elmhurst Inn and decided to grab dinner here. Big Mistake! We waited over a half hour to get our drinks. We waited over an hour and a half to get our dinner. When it came out half was cold, half was burnt. The waiter was very friendly and accommodating and very apologetic regarding the kitchen... More

Driving thru Ingersoll & decided to grab a bite here. To start 'city water' was disgusting. Terrible taste & the waitress was well aware of this when we mentioned how terrible it was. "If you're from around here you know its awful tasting" REALLY? As she does not know us, please think to mention this to us, or check back... More

If you are hungry come here and try it. They change there menus every four months so you never know what is in store here. Tv screens every where to watch the games in the bar or out in the restaunt. The staff is always happy to see you and make sure you are well looked after. And you get... More

This was the third or fourth time I've tried this place and sadly it's always been the same. While they're usually not busy (gee, I wonder why?), the service is incredibly slow and the food isn't great. There are much better options both in Ingersoll and in nearby cities/towns. My last visit there were only a couple other tables occupied... More

Our group of 30+ made a last minute reservation and the restaurant accommodated us very nicely. Prior to, we explained that we did not exect to all sit together or have speedy service. However, the restaurant exceeded our expectations. Considering the amount of people, it was if it was just a normal evening. The service was acceptable and the wait... More

service, food, atmosphere were just mediocre at best, feels like they have given up ? Maybe it was just an off night but might be a long time before I find out.

Happened to stop in when looking for a place eat on way to Toronto. Town had a number of restaurants listed so we got off the 401 and looked around. Just chose this on a whim. OK, like an Applebee's. Not worth a special trip but fine as a step up from fast food.
