We will be back! Great service with a smile. The owner was there and even checked on our table. Think next time I will try the burger!

We were in the Wimpy's Diner in Port Hope on Saturday November 2, 2013 and our experience was exemplary. There were three of us and the service was fast and friendly with good food. We could not help but notice how clean the place looked, including the washrooms, based on what we noticed about a year ago. One of the... More

I have been going to Wimpy's for years. I've noticed the management changed and the employees don't seem as cheerful. After waiting about 40 min for a simple meal, that was made wrong, the waitresses apologized and said unfortunately she can't do anything. She would have to call her boss and get him to speak to me. I had already... More

This Wimpy's is the bomb! We came in to a restaurant that was almost full, and expected to wait a while for our meals. The serving staff was fantastic, and we didn't have to wait as long as expected for our meals. I think our waitress's name was Michelle, but regardless she was fantastic! The atmosphere in the restaurant was... More

Went in wanting classic diner fare. Meal was disappointing. Overpriced for what we got. It was also freezing in the restaurant. The place was empty. Not the best location either. Have been to several other Wimpy's that I enjoyed much more.

I've been going to this Wimpy's Diner for years and it's been plague by slow service since it opened. There have been many complaints over the years to the point that there are notices posted on the walls advising customers that it is not a fast food restaurant. The notice said that food is prepared fresh and takes longer than... More

Last night (September 16, 2012) my parents and I were looking for a quick and yummy dinner, but a little more than just a fast food joint. We had been to the Wimpy's in Port Hope once before and had no problems with the food or service, so thought it would be a good choice to go there again....boy were... More

Dingy little place. Needs a good scrubbing, so does the cook. Stay with any of the Breakfast items, Burgers, and their open face sandwhichs such as the Hot Turkey. Stay away from everything else. Service is Friendly, kitchen is slow. You get the three obligatory visits from the wait Staff. "What will you have", "How is it", "Would you like... More
