We stopped for lunch and had 11 that needed served. Was a little slow and there was a bit of confusion. Food good, hot and the chicken parmigiana was good.

No complaints from our party of four. Our orders: Jack Daniels Flank Steak, Chicken Souvlaki, Pork Tenderloin and Chicken PrimaVera all received high marks. Mix good food, friendly service and an interesting decor and Brantford has a winner here.
