This is not a casual fine dining restaurant . There was 6 of us....the wait service was poor...waiter forgot to bring our drink order, brought our fish dinners without providing any condiments (lemon, vinegar...had to ask him for it), the lime in our rum drinks looked grey and old, one person at our table refused to eat the rice, told the waiter it was inedible and could he bring her a potato instead (which he did), the steak was not enjoyed, the vegetables were tasteless and limp, the bruschetta ordered for an appetizer came late with the meal order, our perch was dry and overcooked...for an $85 bill, you expect better!! This was our first visit, and will be our last! Fine dining, I think not!

What was meant to be a lovely luncheon for a group of friends turned out to be sour grapes. The food was the absolute worst I've ever seen served, not just one dish but every dish ordered. Dry, tasteless, overcooked, substitudes and pooor service at that.

It wasn't the best experienced we had at the Wharf in Port Stanley for several reasons. # 1 it was exceedingly over priced for the poor level of quality of food they served. # 2 no disrespect the servers on the buffet table, looked like they were just hired for that day, they don't look presentable for the job and obvious with no experience, shows they can't cut the meat properly or even scooped the food. The quiche, I think it was, looks saggy on the bottom. Carrots & others looked like there was not given any effort at all. Again for $19.99 just way too much.

its in a run down building.. dirty stained napkins at our table.. you could see lip marks from lipstick on them!!!!!we waited 2 hours for food!!!! it was gross and when we complained the owners acted like we were stupid and didn't know what we were talking about. we had the 2 owners, our waitress and a manager all at our table telling us that we didnt know good steak and that if we didnt like it we should just give it to someone else to eat!!! They were calling us snobs and the waitress lied and said we were swearing at her(we were NOT) unbelievable!!!! They were going to make us pay for the food we didn't eat until we refused. The manager said if you don't pay I have to call the cops.. I said fine.. call them.. because I'm not paying for something I didn't eat. That's when they took the stuff off. This place should NOT be in business!!!!!! DO NOT GO HERE!!!!!

Save your money! The place was way too full for the space, the buffet food was all cold and the omelette maker used his fingers too put the ingredients in the fry pan! The waffle maker didn't work either. At $19.99 per person their should have been plenty of food and good quality. Thy lost our reservation and the owner lady was very rude. The only good thing about the visit was the waitress was pleasant. VERY DISAPPOINTING!!!
