So the Cuban Rueben is awesome, the Fondue is moresome and the Grilled Cheese - new recipe daily - is to die for. Great imaginative menu cooked with diligence. Oh and the beer is good and cheap. Open two months - visit and create an icon.

We were traveling and stopped in Port Hope for gas and a meal. The lady at the gas station recommended Dimitri's so we gave it a try. She said the decor was not nice but the food was good. Well, she was right about the decor but not the food. I don't think I have ever rated a restaurant so... More

Decor is definitely dated but the restaurant is what it is. Good food. Reasonable prices. What you'd expect from a family restaurant - pleasant service. Obviously very popular with the locals.

My wife and I tried this place before going to the Capitol Theatre last Saturday and were pleasantly surprise at the friendly service, bright atmosphere and well prepared food with portions that satisfied with just enough food to fill you up.

we watched the kitchen staff through the window, and saw them rub and scratched themselves while they were preparing dishes... At one point I saw the older cook pat down his sweaty forehead with his hands and then reached into the bread bag to make a club house sandwich ewwh.. ... The décor is outdated and the place was in... More

We had breakfast here and really enjoyed it. I had Dimitri's Breakfast with three eggs, ham, home fries, toast and coffee for $5.99. My wife had the Meat Lover's Omelette with toast and coffee for $7.99. Both meals were cooked exactly as ordered and very good. I found the home fries really good. The portion sizes were perfect too.

Dimitri's is exactly what it should be and is not trying to be anything else. Good, solid, diner comfort food!! If you're looking for old fashioned, big plates of great food, friendly service then this is the place for you.

It is exactly what you would expect. Bacon and eggs and other comforting food. Nice for a quick casual cheap family stop.

Stopped in for a fast lunch during a recent trip to Port Hope. Just had a salad and some garlic bread and my colleague had two bowls of soup. The salad was very good - seemed very fresh and the dressing was also good. Garlic bread could have been toasted just a little more but was still great. Service was... More
