Very Plain, but the Food Was Good

We ate here because one of the locals recommended it to us. It is, indeed, a popular restaurant with the locals. Prices are moderate and the selections on the menu are mostly standard choices. The servers know the regulars by name and their dining preferences. I have heard their meatloaf is... read more

Nothing too adventurous on the menu. But portions were healthy and the place seemed to have locals as well as tourists eating there. We found the food to be bland. But this may just be typical of rural Canada. Informal comfort food. Not exciting but not bad.

We were very hungry after our 5 hour hike and we wanted something that would fill us up. We all ordered the hamburgers which were homemade and very yummy and we had the home made butter tarts for dessert. I don't believe you can order liquor or beer here but that did not stop us from having a good dinner,... More

Four of us had a late lunch so place was dead. Fish and chips were frozen fish and frozen fries, not even as good as frozen fish and chips at home. The hot turkey sandwich was large but gravy looked canned. Prices were what you would see in any small town diner. Lion's Head has very limited choices in restaurants... More

This was the best breakfast I have eaten out for as long as I can remember. The home fries where the best. The restaurant was clean & the service friendly.

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
