The Tally Ho was one of those places that we drove past many times, said that we should try it one day and years later we finally ate there and man do I wish that we had gone here the first time we saw it! The roast beef is the MOST tender that I have ever had! And the gravy... More

I've been going to Tally Ho for 40 years. I've lived in the U.S. for the last 15 years but always try to make it to Tally Ho when I come back to visit. I was back visiting in late November and went to Tally Ho and it was awesome and just the same as I remember.

Wow this place is dated. Looks like it did in the 80's! We stopped in for there famous beef on a bun. We were not disappointed with the food at all. It was a bun topped with a squirt of gravy then piled with roast beef then another squirt of gravy wrapped in foil. Ask for horse radish. This was... More

Stopped in for lunch on Sunday. All three of us had the souvlaki plates. 2 skewers of meat with a Greek salad with lots of feta, served with frozen style French fries and a toasted dinner roll. There was also a side of Tzatziki which was very good. The souvlaki was very good, as well as the Greek Salad. Unfortunately... More

Little place, out of the way, looks nothing special, just west of McMaster University on Main West. I've been going to this place for years. Open early in the morning for breakfast until later in the evening. Never had breakfast here but their roast beef on a bun with gravy is spectacular. Burgers look good but can't comment further. Their... More

I was in West Hamilton today and since I don't get out this way very often, I made my way to Tally Ho Restaurant for a roast beef sandwich and fries with the best gravy ever. Tally Ho Restaurant has been here for ever, in my younger days, when I live in Hamilton, I was down here regularly. The food... More

legendary hamilton restaurant serving roast beef sandwiches till like 3am. served by surly yet charming staff. there are days where i find myself daydreaming about their gravy. sadly you will need the gravy to make the fries edible. but if you pour the gravy on them it does the trick.

Thank bajohns
