“Good food, Good service, Good time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

As a regular diner at Leaky Canoe, my wife and I enjoy the great food and service that this restaurant provides. Starting with its location in downtown Meaford across from the Meaford Hall (a local treasure for a variety of national musical acts and local theatre), the Leaky is a small pub style restaurant that serves a variety of meals including Mandori Chicken Wraps, and an assortment of burgers and yummy sweet potato fries. It is a small restaurant which makes meeting with friends warm and intimate. Check the Meaford Hall website for visiting acts as the restaurant gets busy the evening of the show. Enjoy

Good food and nice beer choices. Friendly service and pleasant decor. Worth a visit. Cheese roll appetiser and steak and ale pie were decent.

“Very tasty burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

We took the advice of other reviewers on tripadvisor.ca and ate a late lunch here.

The booth we were seated at was at the back of the main part of the restaurant, with a cute fake fireplace on the wall behind us. The lighting could be a bit brighter in this booth, I had to pull my phone out to illuminate the menu!

We both ordered burgers (mine was the Barn burger, can't remember what my husband's was called, but it had fried onions and mushrooms on it) with fries for sides. The food came quickly, and it was very, very good! The burgers are HUGE, make sure you're hungry if ordering them! You get a good amount of fries, too. The fries tasted fresh cut, not frozen.

The service could have been a bit more attentive. She never checked on us after the food arrived (good thing we didn't have any problems!) and we had to wait a fair bit after we were done eating before she came to clear and offer the bill. Friendly enough, but as I said, could have been a bit more attentive.

Overall a positive visit, and I would eat here again.

Its so nice to hear you had an overall positive experience! We would love to know who served you.....If you cannot remember a name a date and time of day would greatly help us to find and discuss the less than attentive service as its not the way we have trained our staff! You can reach us directly on facebook or by email theleekycanoe@eogers.com!
Cheers!

“Most filling wings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

Nice service. The wings were great, nicely spiced and especially filling! Even leftover a day later they were good. A great place to go.
