My husband and daughter went there tonight for supper. Everything was delicious! We started with an appetizer, Gobi, which is battered cauliflower with a delicious sauce. I had the salmon and my husband and daughter had the steak. Everything was hot and really good. The...salmon was cooked perfectly as were the steak and fries. Would highly recommend. Our waitress was so cute and friendly. Her name is Chloe.More

Ribs and chicken cooked well, good cornbread. Mac and cheese is simply a cheesy sauce mixed with macaroni and some cheese melted on it. A good baked Mac and cheese would have put this meal over the top

Had dinner at Frendz recently, we ordered the burger & fries along with a wine & marguerita. The burger was tasty and the fries were very good. Usually fries are not the best in restaurants, however, these were delicious. One comment, the staff reserved a...shaded area on the patio however the whole time we were there - about 1.5 hours, no one sat in those seats. There should be no reserving of tables for a "future time".More

We came on a Sunday late afternoon and sat on the patio having beer and nachos. The nachos were the perfect ratio of chips to topping and they use nice crispy triangle pieces and the chips never got soggy, they served it with pico de...Gallo on top for the salsa and sour cream and quacamole on the side. Very good dish. The menu was limited. Service was friendly. Atmosphere was awesome and loved the location. Easy parking. I’d come here again.More

My kids both ordered burgers which they thought were okay, but they really liked their fries. We also had the truffle poutine which they also really liked. I ordered samosas which were totally misnamed. The menu is too small and too limited. Not a salad...on it. Almost everything had bacon in it. Not impressed.More

We stopped in for lunch while on a business trip. Our waiter was very personable and took good care of us. I ordered the grilled cheese with bacon. It was delicious if I lived in the area, this would be one of my favs.

I have visited Frendz on a couple of occasions. The first lunch I enjoyed there was very good but I chose a burger which was a safe choice I returned for dinner on my anniversary and was very disappointed with the service and the food....The fish and chips were awful and looked like it was out of the box and fried in warm oil. I actually told the waiter and he said that he would speak to the chef - that was it. This was after waiting more than an hour for our food. My wife's daquari was super sour and not palatable. I've crossed this restaurant off my list.More

One of the best restaurants in Chatham, best for meeting with friends or large groups. There is something on the menu for everyone. Beautiful interior, friendly staff, great choice of cocktails. Prices are average and food quality is 8/10

The fish tacos were absolutely ridiculous, two little and I mean little pieces of fish sticks (tasted like frozen fish sticks) one in each small tortilla with some kind of sauce that tasted like blue cheese. Very disappointed. The fish meal again was not good....Tarter sauce again tasted like blue cheese. Overall would not go back.More

My friend and I visited the Patio at Frendz after an event at the theatre next door. Beautiful warm evening so that’s why we decided on the patio. Great choice. We shared a bottle of excellent Chardonnay that only cost us $28.00. The manager checked...with us a couple of times and told us about upcoming events and specials. There was entertainment at the other end of the patio. Great listening music. Not so loud that we couldn’t talk but loud enough to enjoy. This is an every Wednesday evening event. Didn’t eat because we were full but the food looked great. Will be backMore

The fish tacos were small and the lack of flavour was very disappointing (all you could taste was the cheddar cheese they were covered in). Nothing was done to rectify the poor meal. This was my second bad meal experience in this restaurant, so I...won’t be giving it a third try.More
