As their new sign indicates this is a place for a filling lunch and dinner too, not just coffee and snacks, although those are excellent in the morning. I love their Cappuccino. It's an old mansion with a porch converted into a bistro; very nice décor. We had dinner here on a Thurs. night in mid September and it was... More

I was shocked to see this great little spot was rated # 13 in Southampton. I also noticed that it has more reviews than any other restaurant in Southampton. Perhaps more people are eating there than any other restaurant in South? I go there with a small group of friends about 8 or 10 times a year. It's something we... More

Myself and three other people visited Elk & Finch today. We would not recommend this place to anyone. Be prepared for an extremely long wait and terrible staff service. We were all so disappointed because the place has so much character and a great atmosphere, but we learned the hard way it's not worth it. When we first arrived, we... More

The setting for this fine dining in Southampton has character and is quaint. Our server was pleasant and helpful. She moved us to a better table and Made suggestions for our food choices. The soup was tasty but not hot and had to be sent back. The Caesar salad was ok,but not great. The whitefish was excellent and nicely presented.... More

We spent a delightful evening catching up on old times over a bottle of wine and good food. Our server Sydney was appropriately attentive and friendly

My husband and I visited on a mid-week evening in August while on vacation in the area on a recommendation from a nice young man we met at the Bruce Power Visitor's Centre who worked there. Overall first impression... beautiful old house and lovely verandah. But then it was totally spoiled by all this clutter for sale. Not sure why... More

I guess this restaurant falls under the YMMV category: Your Mileage May Vary. After reading some pretty negative reviews about the service and the food, let me give you a slice of our experience as well as our expectations. We heard about the the Elk and Finch while visiting the Bruce Nuclear visitor centre in nearby Tiverton. One of the... More

A group of us ate here last weekend for a family birthday. We were a large group but had a reservation so they knew we were coming. We were seated quickly but it took a long time to get drink, and a very long time to receive our appetizers (over an hour). Our entrees took about 1.5hrs to come out.... More

I visited the Elk & Finch Coffee Pub early in July. I had been wanting to stop in for some time because it looked like a really great place, so I was thrilled when I happened to be driving by around the lunch hour and had some free time on my hands to stop. Unfortunately, I was really disappointed by... More

While in Southampton this restaurant was actually recommended to us.When walking up the front steps,our first visual was a table loaded with appeared to be "yard sale items",with prices on them.The downstairs eating area was cramped,and noisy.Our order consisted of New York Strip steak,priced at a overpriced $25,with mashed potatoes,and a single cooked carrot.My order was Penne Chicken Pesto,priced at...
