Very cool 50s diner

It has a nice 50s vibe to it but the food wasn't really that great. If you want and fast and greasy food, this is the place to eat. I always end up feeling gross and sick after eating here. Staff are friendly, service is quick, not very busy in the afternoon. This wouldn't be my first choice... read more

I eat here several time a month and always take my overseas students with me. Each and every time the staff is attentive, the cook puts my meal on as soon as they see me and all of my guests are treated like good friends. The food is always great and tastes home cooked. A wonderful place to go and... More

Stopped here for breakfast. Have not been in about 2 years as premises were becoming get unclean and food tasted more and more like old cooking oil. Under new management for last 1 1/2years, and what a difference. Place is clean and bright. Had a fantastic 4 egg super western that had to be 3" high, and spouse had classic... More

I go here occasionally when I am in the mood for diner fare. I am never disappointed. I do not work there, nor have I ever just to be clear. I love a vintage style diner and the food is always tasty and always received what I ordered. The wait staff are friendly and the last one we had was... More

...then again it's wimpys. Server was awkward, creepy, and seemed to have no personality. Food was not good at all. Should have gone to McDonald's across the road.

Wimpy's is a diner chain. It's diner food. It's a nice little spot if you want your average diner food.

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
