We have always stayed at Esthers when we go to PG, we have children and it has always been good. However until the last couple of years it has gone down hill fast. We stayed at Esthers recently. The week day breakfast buffet is now included with your room and free for the whole family. Sounds like a great deal,... More

Had not been here for years but decided to try it for the promoted Mother's Day Buffet becouse they said they booked tables ahead of time and did 2 seatings one at 11 am the other at 1pm.

The food choices are great, it's a buffet style with various choices, It's served fresh and hot. There are also choices of cold cereals, muffins, danishes, toast and fresh fruit salad.

Heard this restaurant had a great Sunday Brunch so we decided to try the special Easter Brunch. It was excellent. We thought the choice of food was good from egg dishes to meat and fish to the desserts. The only problem we had was waiting for the food to be refilled. There was a bit of a wait. You won't...

We decided to eat dinner in the restaurant because we didn't feel like driving and I must say it was quite enjoyable. The waitress was so friendly and offered up the TV controls since sports were playing and asked us to change it if we wanted to. We ordered drinks, appetizers and dinner and everything was delicious. There were a... More

Buffet advertised as open until 10. Come in at 9:40 after a long work day to see it being dismantled. Ask why and say it's not 10 yet, got yelled at by the hostess, saying "Well they can;t leave it up all night..." Food was good- but I tried to avoid eating there. Overpriced and moody staff

The Sunday buffet is the only good thing about Esthers Inn. The spread is fantastic and a great price. Skip the stay, go for breakfast.

nuked ribs with bottled BBQ sauce, twice baked and then frozen potatoes, cup of watery coleslaw = worst meal in memory and premium price no wonder the dining room was empty

I had the fish and chips, which was VERY good. I dont remember what my boyfriend had, but I do remember he had one of the local beers, which was also very good. Very good value for the money as well.

We held our coaches meeting for the 2014 Provincial Ringette Championships. The catering manager and staff were great! They let us use the dining room which was very comfortable! We had delicious appies. We had 50 people, ordered appies for 40 and there was more then enough food. The staff were very helpful and friendly!

Thank Karen N
