“Very nice”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Hit Gertie's for a Saturday night dinner. Atmosphere was pretty quiet. Was a little surprised by how pricey much of the dinner menu was. Fortunately there was still a decent amount of good value items. My wife had the Curried chicken sandwich. It was great. And they put it in a wrap for her so she was very content. I have to try any pulled pork sandwich on any menu, and am happy to say it did not disappoint. One of my top 3. Nice and sweet. A little smoky. I prefer some hot in there as well, but it was still great. The fries are usually very good, mine were overcooked this time however. The caesar salad is super as well. The dressing tastes homemade with tons of garlic.
The service was good, and the wine was great. Another good time at Gertie's.

“Awful Service!”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

A group of 4 of us went for a late lunch / early dinner. It took a server 20 min to acknowledge us being there, and another 20 min to get a drink! The server seemed to be more interested in the bartender than serving her tables. The food came (over an hour wait) and hot food was cold, cold food was soggy. We have been several times before and the service wasn't great, but the food made up for it. This time, both were awful. We won't be back.

“Good food with pub atmosphere”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Been here several times over the last few months. Each time is just for beer and basic standard pub food like fries, nachos, burgers, salads etc. Can't comment on fancier main course type servings but certainly everything we have had has been very good. Space is a bit limited so it is a bit confined/noisy when full but still enjoyable. Cold beer, hot tasty food and good service every time we have gone.

“Great find!”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Found Gertie's on a spur of the moment trip to Peterborough.
We had the club sandwich and fish and chips - both were excellent. Homemade tartar sauce with dill was the best I've ever had. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, and lots of menu options make this restaurant a great find!

“Fun Spot!!”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

Excellent food and drink. This is an awesome spot for some very good food. In the summer they have a patio that is out front by the street. It's always a fun time.
