Stayed at Lions Head Beach Hotel and we're looking for breakfast. We found it here. I had the Veggie Omelette with HomeFries and my husband 2 eggs and rye toast. Mine was exactly as advertised. Pan fried potatoes were too greasy for me and lacked and spices so I skipped them. My husband's eggs came cooked as ordered and he... More

I've never understood why a country diner like Marydale's would serve frozen McCain's french fries and canned beef gravy. It's cheaper and quicker to make your own! Food is really nothing special (and a tad pricey in my opinion) and service is definitely average at best.

Located on the Main Street of picturesque Lions Head, this little country diner delivers exactly what you would expect. Definetely a pleasant experience, but nothing special. Service is very quick and accurate, not necessarily "friendly", food is quick and for the most part tastes home cooked. The Spanish omelette was a bit heavy on the salsa and I would have... More

Located in the scenic town of Lionshead the restaurant is a typical country diner. It was full of summer time tourists including yours truly. I ordered the Hungry Man Special breakfast and it came with all the usual culprits; side bacon, ham, sausages, three eggs, and toast. It was cooked well and the coffee was good. The service was friendly... More

Large portions of liver and onions, meatloaf and mash, homemade soup, etc. Well-prepared, tasty and efficiently served. Busy place apparently from mid-afternoon until closing (8p.m.)

The hot plate has plenty of food. We ordered a clubhouse and a fajita. The thing l like most is the Rye bread they used on my club.

We had sandwiches and my husband also ordered soup, which the waitress forgot. He asked whether he was still getting it after his sandwich arrived, and she went back to get it without offering an apology or explanation. We noticed this happend to another woman across the restaurant who got her fish sandwich special but not the fries or coleslaw... More
