Something was happening on the night we ate here. Everyone's meal took at least an hour. Our waitress kept saying that she was sorry but there was nothing she could do. Very wrong ! Alert us to the problem in the kitchen and maybe we could have ordered differently. Offer an appetizer or more of the tiny pieces of bread.... More

I had the pleasure of taking my 12-year-old granddaughter and 3 of her friends to the Avon Theatre for a matinee. After researching Trip Advisor, I selected Foster's for lunch. I phoned the day before to make a reservation for 5 for noon and explained that we'd be coming from out-of-town. The fellow taking the reservation said ... if we... More

We always had difficulty finding a restaurant open early and also served an excellent breakfast. We finally found Fosters. Their menu is upscale with both light and traditional breakfasts. They use real maple syrup. The quality of their food is excellent. Most restaurant breakfasts are fried where Foster's grills their food. Very, Very good

Had a great breakfast here! Turns out they have hotel rooms and a lounge, also! Nicely appointed, and the service was pretty good although it was not FAST. Our waiter was also an actor and very interesting to talk with.

Basically my wife's meal was excellent mine was served Luke warm. I had to send it back to be reheated. I'm guessing mine was sitting under a heat lamp until her meal was completed, very disappointing. As well the wait staff wasn't very attentive near the end of the meal.

The burgers were their specialty but my husband found it to be ok! The beer was served in an ugly half-label glass. My salad with steak was over priced as was the burger. There are too many restaurants in downtown Stratford to visit Foster's again!

Had an amazing breakfast here for five, when we met my cousin. Wonderful staff. Long lazy breakfast where we just hung out to enjoy each others company.

The food was great, especially the shrimp appetizer. Our waiter was very attentive and pleasant, but the restaurant was very busy and the service was terribly slow, we did not have time for desert. .

We went here for lunch on the recommendation of our hotel, and we're glad we did. My husband and I had a nice butternut squash soup (which could have used a little more cream), and the open faced ruben sandwich with fries. The corned beef was nicely seasoned, and not overly salty. Our friends had the generous sized veggie wraps.... More

Excellent meal and great service. Lucky to be able to make a reservation in between plays. Nice atmosphere. Menu varied and well priced. Will go again.
