Go for the fish fry on Wednesday and Friday

The other entrees on the menu are delicious, but I love the all you can eat fish fry on Wednesday and Friday -- definitely worth standing in line. The staff are always helpful and friendly. My husband loves the French onion soup, which is loaded with cheese and croutons.

Friday night there was an hour long wait, so we returned on Sat. Well worth the return. Food was very good, staff was very friendly. Good selection on menu. Prices about average for a nice dinner. Quaint little building, not a lot of seating, but a lot of character.

Fiancé and I went for a date night on Friday night. Got a table right away and brought out a few different kinds of bread. Ordered and came out with big portions. Food was pretty good. Would go back again!

we stopped in as we came into town. Tons of food for the dollar! We sat in the bar - the place was completely packed solid, so we felt lucky to get a seat right away. Our toddler liked the food.

I found this restaurant on Trip Advisor before we left Ontario. I was aware what it was supposed to look like but even so, standing right in front of it, we were unsure if we should really enter. It looked just like an old run down house. That just proves how looks could be deceiving. The interior was interesting with... More

We've been regulars at the Hungry Peddler for many years. It's a small sort of neighborhood restaurant. We have always found the wait staff to be very friendly, and breakfast is incredibly fast. They make one of the best Eggs Benedict I've found, and I've tried them all over the country, on cruises, and very large hotels. Locals know that... More

I've enjoyed this place for lunch but if you need to keep a schedule don't just drop in. The place seems to fill and tables don't turn quickly. If you can wait, the experience is worth it. The soups are good and I enjoy their fish dinner.

I have tried this place a couple times now. Their breakfast is always just ok, and wait staff is never friendly. The restaurant itself is tiny and cramped and there usually is a wait since they don't take reservations. Go to Fayzees.

We met some family members here for supper. The service was good. The atmosphere was okay. The food was not good. It was cold in the restaurant. Will not return.
