Visited this location for lunch, first time back in more then 3 years and was happy to see the quality of the food, cleanliness of the washrooms and overall cleanliness of the restaurant had not changed. We had the Canadian hot dog and Tuna Melt and both were excellent. This is definitely a revisit when in the area.

We wanted to go somewhere to have traditional food. This place was recommended. This place has the 60's decor with the jukeboxes and music selection at some booths. The food was served hot and tasty. The servers were friendly. This is a place to go in jeans or more relaxed attire. It is about as far as you can get... More

There are lots of choices at the True North Diner. I went for the grilled haddock. It was tender and moist but sadly, lacking in flavour. My french fries seemed to be re-heated. The rest of my group enjoyed their meals, and our server was very attentive and friendly. It wasn't my best meal, but I would return.

If you want a unique diner experience that includes live music (albeit karaoke) then this is the place for you. The seating is comfy, the atmosphere typical 50's and the staff are warm and friendly. The menu is extensive and the food very fresh and tasy

This restaurant is a fun, place to visit.The theme decor is fifties;complete with a jukebox featuring favorite "Oldies".The service here is fast and friendly.The menu is varied with generous well prepared meals--somewhat home style. This dining experience is worth repeating; very happy to have found it.

I absolutely love 50's themed diners and am happy to have one close to home! Service is always friendly and the food is always delicious. The milkshakes and burgers are to die for!

Been here a few times so far. The décor and theme of the restaurant are really great. Friendly staff and decent pricing. Food is always good, however not anything special. Mostly food you could cook at home easily and cheaper. Kids eat free Monday is great though.

For the price, you can't go wrong. The food was pretty good, and served fast. The server was friendly. A large menu with something for everyone. With the cost of dining out these days, this place is serving decent food at a great price. A real gem.
