“One of the worst meals I've ever been served.”
Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

Title say's it all. Chicken and ribs should not be difficult. But it was just totally awful. The chicken had some sort if thick layer of skin on it despite the fact that it had already been skinned. The ribs contained about 50% fat and cartilage. Horrible. I am eating breakfast here tomorrow too as I am staying in the hotel! Can't wait. Friendly waitresses though.

Thank you for your comments concerning your meal at the Country Kitchen .We welcome customer feedback, positive or negative, so that we can improve the guest experience. We're very sorry to hear that the quality of the food and its preparation were not up to the standards we promote in the Country Kitchen. We've spoken with the cook staff for that evening and shared your concerns as well to prevent this from happening again in the future. We do hope you will give the Country Kitchen another chance if you find yourself in Ontario again. We would welcome the opportunity to impress you with our service and food.

“pleasant surprise”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

we had gotten to the motel a little later in the evening and thought that we would try this place as it was within walking distance to the motel expecting the typical food chain meal, well to start with the hostress seated us really fast and the waitress was very friendly, I tried the senior special steak thinking that I would be able to chew anthing that they threw at us but much to my surprise the steak was tender and tasteful not at all like the meal that I was expecting and the chocolate cake was great, we saw anouther couple and recommended the same meal to them, we saw them the next morning at breakfast and they said the steak was excellent, so I guess you just can't lump them all in the same pot.

“Diner fare at very reasonable prices”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

I enjoyed breakfast and dinner here while staying at the attached hotel. The food was simple, good diner-type fare. There is a wide selection, from salads and soups to comfort food like meatloaf and roasted turkey with mashed potatoes. The best part was the prices: extremely reasonable. And the already low prices were made even better by the $5 coupon provided by the hotel.

Horrible waitstaff who treated us poorly, like we were an inconvenience. Food was ok, nothing great OR horrible. I will not eat there again.

“Clean, good service, excellent food.”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

The bacon burger on ciabatta bun was delicious. Aside from the cheese and meat the other components come assemble it yourself fashion. I opted for the unlimited fries of which a second helping was plenty.
