“Too many choices!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

WIth so many choices, you expect some of them to be less than average, but this is not the case. My wife and I sampled several different items, and all were above average, if not excellent. Great place for a family, or a couple (not a romantic dinner, but not too noisy for conversation either). This was our second time eating here in the past couple of months, and they do change the selections. Good call on their part, as it will keep people coming back for more!

“Tucker's Marketplace (Heartland) 5975 Mavis Rd. Miss. Ont”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

** AVOID !

Visiting this resaurant on April 20,2013.

Problems:

1.) Employee performing cleaning duties with broom/ dirt catcher and wiping cloth went directly to buffet area to assist with food preperation without washing hands or putting gloves on.

2.) Glass provided by server with ice tea had lipstick residue around top rim area of glass

3.) Server slicing roast beef was very rude, when asked for a second slice he ignored request and when asked again with a "please can I have a second slice" his reply was our policy is only one slice per serving. Given the slice was as thin as cold cuts it was hardly something resembling roast beef especially when it was drenched with gravy all over the plate.

4.) Food prep employee picked up pieces of lettuce from the counter after wiping it with a detergent soaked cloth and placed it back into the salad serving bowl with her hands, no gloves.

5.) Food availability slow. Refilling of empty foods was very slow and the amounts were scarce. Not a good idea for a buffet based self serve resaurant.

6.) Cutlery was not clean, forks had hard dried up food in between inner edges. Requested another fork which was delivered some 10 minutes later by the server without any apology.

7.) Approached manager with all concerns only to be told they value customer input and advised it's very difficult to address all minor issues especially on busy evening periods such as Saturdays (circa 6:00pm)

Overall, I would highly NOT recommend this restaurant especially given the abundance of dining options available in this area. The cleanliness was very poor, the service was below average, and the food was at best sub mediocre.

“Luck Of The Draw”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Was disappointed about this location in comparison to Ottawa. Came here and the glasses served with water were dirty along with some of the utensils they set at the table. Came a few times to this location and one of the waiter's was pretty rude and abrupt. Even rolled his eyes when we asked for clean glasses.
The onion straws for the burgers were barely cooked. They were almost still completely frozen. The person cooking the pasta dishes was pretty friendly.
Also came here for a Sunday brunch on another visit. Very expensive brunch for what you end up getting.

“Great selection, great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Tucker's is a great place if you like to try different foods. Good variety, all of it very well prepared. It can be a bit noisy, as it is a family restaurant, but the little kids can be entertaining! Close to the airport, I would recomment this as a good place to load up on real food before you get on an airplane!
