It was hard to find a menu online but after that everything was good. The waitress that took our call was knowledgeable and the food was ready in 20 minutes, as she said. I had a double burger (jonnys special) and my son has the apple burger. We also had the onion rings and some fries. All was still hot... More

We always have a meal or two at The Union Street Cafe. When we entered, the decor and personnel had changed. We were told that the previous owners had sold. In its current configuration, the menu has shifted from fine dining to pub style. Although there were two items on the menu that resembled the previous experiences, the majority were... More

I try to stop here whenever we go through Berwick. It's a casual but stylish place. The washrooms are immaculate. But the food is extraordinary! I had the Dragon's Breath Blue Burger. It would have been delicious even without garnish, let alone with the sweet tomato slices, blue cheese mayo, caramelized onions, crisp romaine, etc.! My husband was just as... More

A tasty place for lunch & craft beer with a fun vibe. The decor provides interest. The burgers and soups are yummy. It was National Hot Dog Day when we went so they offered a gigantic chilli dog as one of the specials .

This place used to be our favorite restaurant in the Valley, but no more. It seems since the ownership changed the food has gone downhill. Menu selection is poor, portions are small, and the quality just isn't there anymore. I was very disappointed after my last meal and received no apology or offer to reduce the bill. Perhaps there's still... More

My favourite restaurant in the valley but I'm not a huge fan of the recent changes. The wings are pathetic compared to the old chicken breast "wings". The owner seemed to find it hilarious that i liked the old ones more. I wouldn't recommend the new wings, go to Halifax and visit oasis if you want dive bar wings. They... More

Yesterday (Wednesday), a group of 5 of us had lunch at the Union Street. It's been under new ownership for a bit with new chef and all, and it is amazing. It's so busy that the place was packed on a Wednesday at noon, so I would highly suggest you make a reservation before you go..........I had the hamburger with... More
