Been twice now - first time had steak & Guinness pie, veggies were barely cooked and not fresh, second visit tries spuds (potato skins) - not well executed at all (too much potato, artificial bacon bits, barely any scallions). Good atmosphere but really needs better food prep.

Me and my husband tried to the Loaf N Ale about a year Ago and did not have the best experience. However, after loads of friends and family told us to give it another try we did, and I'm so glad we did. The staff was very attentive and friendly and the food was amazing with huge portions. Usually if we go to shoeless joes my husband leaves hungry, but he was full after the loaf. The chicken burger and fries was amazing plus the drink special was 4 dollar glasses of house wine was a huge plus. Now it's the only place we dine in napanee.

We dined at the Loaf N Ale last Friday night and it was packed. They have a Friday night buffett for a very nominal price and it is delicious. We opted for the one piece fisha and chips. I din't quite finish mine and my wife gave up half way through...just too much food. They offer 2 pieces for a few bucks more but there is no way I could handle that. We go to the "Loaf" about once or twice a month and have had a few major family events there and have never been disappointed. If you go....make sure you are hungry.

Don't know what's going on with this place. Used to be good. The last two times I have been (within the last six weeks or so), things have really gone down hill. The food is now terrible. The same menu items that used to be delicious and fresh and hot are now lukewarm, over salted and of definitely lesser quality. And the service is horrific. Deplorably understaffed. We were there Friday for lunch and waited 45-50 minutes for our food. We had to get back to work. You can't treat your lunch crowd that way. Won't be back.
