Foster's is steps away from the Avon Theatre. A good choice . We had the grilled pork chops with mango/ salsa sauce. Good service, minimal wait for a table even though we had not reserved. A bit noisy. But a good atmosphere and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

This was our second visit and we were disappointed this time. The foie gras was so overcooked and could not be repaired. The meal was only average whereas last year it was quite good.

I LOVE their burgers.. and their fries... I honestly think that they are the best in Stratford. They are generous portions and you still feel light when you leave the restaurant not ready for a nap. I have also had their breakfast which is pretty good... but the burgers.. you have to try to burgers.

Very disappointed with this entree...was so good last visit! Chicken was blah, no seasoning and no buttermilk gravy.

We came here on a suggestion from our B&B host, and it did not disappoint! The food was delicious and really good portion size. Craig was our server and he was attentive but not in our faces the whole time which allowed us to really enjoy our first morning away! Would definitely go back, maybe for lunch or dinner next...

On a recent trip to Stratford I decided to have dinner at Foster's. I had been in before a few years ago for a beer and decided to have dinner this time. I chose Foster's because it can have a lively atmosphere. When I was at the restaurant there were one or two other couples eating as well. It was... More

I dined at Foster's on a Friday night before attending the nearby Avon Theatre. There were no tables available but I was offered a spot at the bar and since I was alone I took that option. The service was excellent; friendly and attentive. I ordered a Sirloin Nicoise Salad which was abundant and excellent. The steak was prepared exactly... More

Very good food. The best calves liver I've ever been served in a restaurant, by far . Friendly service, nice presentation. We found reservations to be necessary.

We dined at Foster's Inn restaurant this year, although we had been there before but had not been to pleased. We decided to try it again. I had a delicious shrimp appetizer and dessert - a lovely walnut brownie with ice cream. My husband had a hamburger, which he declared was one of the best he had ever had. His... More

I like to treat myself for breakfast regularly. Rarely do I feel the need to write a review. And being in the hospitality industry (in Stratford) I am also, always, searching for great breaky places. I enjoyed foster's this morning; haven't been in a number of years, I decided to give it a try again. I was the only one... More
