“Average Food, Terrible Service.”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

I have been meaning to write this review for awhile, but finally got to it now. I am an 18 year-old Grimsby resident who attends a Grimsby high school. Last October, a friend and I decided to go to Teddy's for lunch. We parked in the back lot and entered through the side door. We sat down at a table nearby and were not acknowledged for over 5-10 minutes ... The place was completely empty. The waitresses stood at the bar chatting aimlessly before one of them rudely came over and informed us that "Just so you know, we open at 11." I checked my watch and it was 10:58 AM. We didn't realize they weren't officially "open" for the day, but then why were the doors open? The waitress was extremely short with us and rude from then on too. It took forever to receive our drink orders and the food as well. We watched the staff stand around and talk and blatantly ignore us! Food was average ... But the service was poor and ruined the experience. Can't believe they treat paying customers that way, regardless of age! Will never go back.

“Response to last review”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

What the unsatisfied customer failed to mention was that the tables next to them got a front row view of the father of the family pretend to "drop" the tray of wings on the poor 'wait staff's' feet because he refused to pay $2.50 for a take out container. They were loud and were not willing to compromise considering it was 59 cent wing night. It's always nice to see how lovely the towns people of Grimsby can be.

I have nothing negative or positive to say about the experience at Teddy's, we just go for cheap wings. However, if you want GOOD SERVICE and people to be NICE to you, then you should probably reciprocate. And as one who goes every Thursday for wing night, they tell you UP FRONT - '59 CENTS A WING - EAT IN ONLY SPECIAL'.

The poor 'wait staff' girl was trying to pick up the wings off the ground as the man proceeded to move his feet in fron to them so she couldn't pick them up.

YOU GET THE KINDNESS YOU GIVE!

“NEVER AGAIN!”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

As Grimsby residents, we went as a family to informally celebrate a birthday. The service is horrible (again). We weren't allowed to take our leftovers home even though we still had to pay for the food that was left uneaten. (It's hard to judge what to order and how much on an empty stomach).The place needs a total makeover. Our server did not get our order correct and then told the wait staff to take our uneaten and paid for food off of the table as we were not allowed to take it home with us. Unbelievable!! Needless to say...No tip for you. We will never return. There are too many other places to go and eat in.

“I'd rather eat in a McDonalds parking lot.”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

This restaurant has such a strong reputation, I figured that it was going to be great.

The manager at this establishment basically forced us out of our table prior to us finishing our meal because she was expecting a large group. Maybe you shouldn't take reservations if you can not accomodate. Shortly after, she was lounging on the patio drinking alcoholic beverages and still barking out commands to her staff.

We had the sweetest server who was extremely kind to our children but we saw her getting reprimanded in a very rude and public way for giving us the extra wet-napkins we asked her for. The poor girl looked like she was going to cry.

The food was fair. Not great, not bad. Very greasy, very buttery. I don't know why the wings are number one in niagara. Maybe we have poor taste in voting our number one wings. Fries were disgusting. All 8 of us felt like we were going to throw up after our meal.

Sitting on the "dancefloor" is extremely annoying. You are close to the server station, where the manager seems to just stand and bark orders to the staff. A lot of the staff listens, while the other half just runs away because they don't care to listen.

Teddy's needs a FULL INDOOR RENO! A NEW MANAGER! AND POSSIBLY A SWEAR JAR! THE STAFF IS CONSTANTLY SWEARING LOUD ENOUGH FOR EVERYONE TO HEAR!

And can anyone tell me when this ridiculous establishment even closes?!?!?! Sometimes it's closed at 9, sometimes 11, sometimes 2... What's going on here?!
