The staff was friendly. We popped in for lunch last week. The seafood chowder was delicious. My husband ordered a stuff chicken which was quite yummy. I ordered nachos. The nachos were stale.

Stopped in to Ziggys for lunch, it was not that busy. I had a hot sandwich, everyone else had burgers, with fries and gravy. The hot sandwich itself was good, the mushy vegetables not so great. Our daughters burger bun came toasted black, the server quickly changed it. Overall, the food was only okay. The bill was a bit hefty,... More

The service is good. The food isn't spectacular, but we do go here on occasion. If you are looking for reasonably priced pub style food, then it's worth a visit. Although I would not recommend the lasagna as the Caesar salad is terrible.

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.

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
