Had a wonderful dinner there with my family this past weekend. Fish and Chips is the go to favourite but I also tried the salmon and a main street salad, both which were quite tasty. Service was great, restaurant was pretty full but food arrived fairly quick. The craft beer selection is awesome! Especially the cask. Nice to have something... More

Once again, we had a BOGO coupon and decided to visit for lunch. Despite its downtown location, there is parking both street side and in a municipal lot behind the restaurant (first 2 hours free). There is a fenced patio on the street by the entrance, but preferring AC, we went indoors. The setting is historic with furnishings, lighting, etc.,... More

Service was poor. The staff were aloof and rude. This restaurant was good when the owner served and hosted the bar.

Thank you for your feedback should there be a genuine complaint, however I am concerned this is a fraudulent review and have contacted trip advisor to say as much. First, it says you were here in November of 2015 which is over 6 months ago, so I find it hard to believe if you had such a bad experience that... More

I felt the dinning area was a bit small and the atmosphere was a bit dark. Nothing overly spectacular

Thank you for your feedback. We recently renovated and tried to keep in line with the buildings heritage history. As far as the size of the dining room, there are days we wish it was bigger too ;) unfortunately the size of our building is not something we can change, but we do appreciate you trying us out! Hopefully the... More

It is centrally located in Downtown Galt, part of Cambridge, Ontario. It is pub, restaurant. I did not check the bar section. It seems to me that it has 3 floors. The reception was in the 2cond floor, good ambience, private, good view of the historical center. Food was not the great, my roost beef was hard, salad was good,... More

Thank you for your feedback and hope you enjoyed the reception. I apologize for the dry prime rib as everyone who had tried it that night gave it rave reviews! We offer numerous different reception options at different price points, so the food offered to you that night was the menu that the people who planned the party chose. Where... More

Fantastic beer selection. Service normally very good. Good can be very good, but can be inconsistent. Sometimes varies wildly from last time you had same item.

Our experience at Café 13 was quite enjoyable. The staff are very nice and the food has always been good. We love the décor. The only downside I would have to mention is that their menu is very limited.

Thank you so much for your review. Our menu can be a bit smaller than some of the larger restaurants for sure. We do have a bar menu available now with some more options and we will also be doing a seasonal menu update in the next couple of weeks. Hope to see you again soon! More

Great food, service, and atmosphere. Newley renovated, they have entertainment some nights. We regularly attend functions in the Galt Room which is upstairs from the restaurant. Food was very good and innovative, not just your usual pub fare. Adam and his staff are very proficient in what they do.

On a whim my boyfriend and I pop in to enjoy a late night summer beverage. Our waitress was very knowledgable - choosing a fabulous craft beer for my "Bud Light "-only drinking man...he actually had two :D We paired it with the mussels on their late night menu -perfect amount for the price! Although a bit dated to the... More

My friend and I were looking for something close to Dunfield Theatre and this pub was less than 2 km. away. There's paid parking behind but we found free street parking half a block away. The menu is fairly extensive. I had haddock and fries and my friend had a burger and fries. We both enjoyed our meals very much.

Thank you so much for your kind review. Just for future reference, the parking lot behind us is free for 2 hours as long as you put a voucher in your car, as I know sometimes street parking can be hard to come by. Hope to see you again soon! More
