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

This was a first for us....Lions Head. This resturant jumped out at us as we drove down the main street. On entering we both, my wife and |I felt comfortable. Waitress was engaging and pleasant and well informed on not only the food but the town as a whole. If you are looking for splashy, look elsewhere this is down... More

Nothing special, average restaurant food and average service. The food I ordered was on the cold side by the time I got it.

Having eaten at MaryDales many times, it is easy to say that for value and good food, MaryDales can not be beat. The staff, though often rushed and busy, are always courteous and friendly. I have seen them go out of their way to meet the needs of their customers, whether the customers are wee ones or some of the... More

met some friends for lunch and was pleasantly surprised by the great service and choice on the menu. I am vegetarian and they had a good grilled veggie wrap. My friends had the homemade soup and said it was delicious. The coconut better tarts were excellent so my partner said all in all a good experience. When we are in... More

Again visited on a Friday night... and enjoyed the one piece fish special for $6.95. We headed for a table in the rear corner...to be told that table was "for staff" Perhaps a small sign stating that on the table would be thoughtful. Since I am not fond of french fries, I was able to substitute a salad for them...... More

We stopped here on our way to Dyer's Bay for a weekly cottage rental. The menu had more variety than I expected for a small town, mostly standard diner fare. However, everything tasted good (especially after a long day of driving) and the service was pleasant. The butter tart was a little overrated from my point of view, but I'm... More
