great food good service nice menu good wine selection. It is a popular place so a reservation is needed for the upper dining rooms.

We'd heard mixed reviews of this restaurant so decided to go see for ourselves. In the upper dining room the atmosphere was cozy, the service good, and the food excellent. The restaurant itself is a bit dated, could do with some cosmetic surgery, but overall the experience was pleasant. A chicken stir fry was hearty, well seasoned and richly sauced.... More

She did not rush us and we were a table of eleven. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. I haven't tried the part of... More

Stopped in to try a burger and was disappointed . I like fresh meat and it tasted like it came from the freezer. The restaurant itself was not the cleanest I've been in. My wife had the New York grilled cheese. She thought it was . We came with another couple and they were not impressed . We won't be... More

I have gone for breakfast twice and won't be going back. When you enter you order at the counter and then take a seat and your breakfast is delivered. I am very specific about how I order my breakfast, and both times I went the same thing happened. I specifically ordered 2 eggs, bacon, toast and coffee and both times... More

We stopped after a nice ride today with our friends. This was our first time along with our friends as we heard excellent things about the food. We must have really misunderstood because we ended up at the side entrance where we thought the restaurant was. We arrived at 12:15 pm the high peek of lunch. The restaurant was empty... More

We were fed up with holiday weekend traffic on Hwy 401, so went off at Port Hope and using Trip Advisor, found this restaurant. We did not realize that there were two parts to this establishment. We walked in on the east side entrance & found that it was more like a cafe - place your order at the counter... More

We had a group of 9, with a reservation. We were seated promptly and our waitress was right there to take our drink and appetizer order. I had a house wine which was quite good. The lobster and spinach appetizer is excellent. I had the prime rib special and it was very good, and a good value I thought.

Have been here numerous times and will return I'm sure. They have a full dining room on one side and a quick meal area on the other side and I have been to both, but more so to the quick side. I have had the gyros meal, burgers, hot dogs, steak and onion sandwich, salads, and other items. The service... More
