Good food but froze while eating

Food was good service too. But it was so cold the whole restaurant ate with there coats on. It's a shame the staff didn't notice how cold all the customers were.

We ordered appetizers as well as the special, 2 for $14 striploin steak with vegetables and choice of potato. Service was brusque but efficient. The appetizers were adequate at best- veggie basket was decent, though everything in it tasted the same and was basically fried together in one large clump. Wings were alright, nothing to write home about. Potato skins... More

We were here on Saturday September 5, 2015. They were very accommodating for on the spot notice of a group of about 20 people. The service was really good and the food was wonderful. They have a wide selection of things to choose from on the menu and we had our meals pretty quickly considering the size of our party.... More

Let's not forget it's a pub, so you expect finger food. My wife ordered hot turkey and me a fish and chips (sweet potatoes) and both plates were brought very quickly. Both were excellent.

best food and best staff by far. Would highly recommend to anyone of any age. although it is a pub, still great for a family meal and the staff is very pleasant with younger children.

8 family for dinner. Service was friendly & prompt. That is as far as it goes. As a couple our grilled haddock & rib steak specials were disgusting. Instant potatoes with the fish(which was tasteless) & cold chewy veggies. Rib steak was overdone, seared black & chewy, fries soggy & greasy along with same uncooked veggies. The two of us... More

Don't you just love that local establishment that is your go-to place when you need a night out of the kitchen. We love a dinner at Ziggy's. Classic pub food, and everyone has their favourites. Jennie, Karen, and the girls are very sweet, attentive, and make you feel at home. The bar staff is equally wonderful. Great spot for good... More

Went there because of ratings. Not sure who rated, but the place was a dive. Washrooms were not clean, the food, well I would have done better with a T.V. dinner. The scallops and clams looked and tasted like something from a refrozen bag from a freezer, the scallops were the size of a dime. The grilled fish had no... More

Tuesday, July 22nd, as we were heading to Newfoundland we stopped by Ziggy's for a meal. I decided on the special, rib eye steak. I ordered my steak medium rare with baked potato. The meal came out quickly, too quickly, and when I cut the steak it was well done. I called our server over and showed her the well... More

First restaurant experience in Canada after spending a long time in USA. Usually nervous about Canadian service in restaurants but not this one!! Excellent service, some of the best in Sydney. The food came in large portions. You certainly get what you pay for. I ordered the grilled haddock and soup, it was fantastic. I would highly recommend this place... More
