Our basketball team brought 25 patrons to an empty restaurant. 10 teens thought their meals were good. The adults found most meals ok. The chicken fajita wrap was not edible - raw peppers and onion with cooked chicken - and even when mostly uneaten and the staff were informed they did nothing about the bill. If you like ribs the...

We stopped in for dinner and weren't too impressed from the start. At first we were seated near the kitchen but someone was throwing silver into a drawer and it was loud! We moved to another seat away from that noise but the acoustics in the dining room were such that a couple in the middle of the room could... More

On my visit to Amherst this last week we chose to eat at Conner's Family Restaurant. I'm told is similar to a Smitty's (as that what it was before becoming Conner's Family Restaurant) same type of menu.. AKA all day breakfast... very enticing... an a Monday to Friday breakfast for $5.99. Pretty reasonable for travellers.

The restaurant was decorated in Fall colours, nice to see. Friendly people. We were sat at a table but it was so cold, like a gale blowing through the vent, we moved. Two other couples also moved from the same table and apparently there was no way it could be fixed! That being said our hot, and I mean hot,... More

Probably the best in Amherst. Have good choices in their menu. Should try the rib eye and scallop. Bar opens until midnight. Close to comfortable inn hotel. If I go back to Amherst, for sure I will eat again at this restaurant. Steak was over cooked.

Since nearly every other restaurant in Amherst is either a pub or fast food, we were glad to find Connor's nearby our hotel. The food is good and the prices reasonable (especially given the favorable exchange rate with USD). I had a surprisingly good ribeye steak and the dessert selection was tempting though we were too full after dinner to... More
