“More than you pay for”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Great regular food, server was extremely friendly, Jennifer the bill says.
My mothers smoked meat platter was huge.
Very large selection of normal non frufruw food......... not someplace where models would eat,
or rather a whole agency could eat one meal.
Good taste, almost Montreal Deli style.
Steak sandwich was good, very filling.
Ice cold beer.
Great value, and treated well,
can not understand the negative reviews........... what planet are they from?
and if they are super picky why chose this place in the first place?
Return customer who will return.
Most clients seemed to be local, older people,
greatest recommendation to a family style place.

“A Local Icon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Breakfast as Mom used to say is the most important meal of the day. The locals in Cambridge probably take breakfast at 50's as a ho-hum experience, as on any given day you will find repeat patrons devouring a variety of breakfast options. If you happen to be on the road and appreciate great service with well presented food at a reasonable price. Lunch and dinner menus also present generous portions at a very reasonable price. If you are looking for value, quantity and quality - 50's is the place to go. Beer and wine are not pushed in this establishment, but are available if one wishes to have an alcoholic beverage. The emphasis is on family dining, good food, generous portions at a reasonable price.

“Regular Stop”

Eat here often, mostly breakfast or dinner. Good food, better portions

Quality is good, service is generally good. One of the better casual dining spots in the area

“A line up isn't a bad thing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Doesn't seem to matter when you go, there is always a few minute wait to get in. We love the fact you have to wait...because we know there is a reason...THE FOOD IS GREAT....We love the menu variety, and the service is fantastic. Sunday Morning Breakfast....it's the #1 place...We drive from Guelph to Cambridge just for breakfast....Can you tell we love this place.
