My partner and I just moved up to Meaford last month and of course, I refered to this site for restaurant recommendations. Well, Ted's diner came up and sounded interesting, so we took ourselves over there this evening thinking to have an interesting meal and some entertainment as Wednesdays are Jamm night. Well, we didn't stay for the band because the server said they were coming on at 9:30 instead of 9 and we were finished our meal at 8:45, so didn't want to stick around for 45 minutes. I ordered the snow crab cluster for $35 and my husband had the curried chicken which was actually chicken breasts with curry sauce for $19. I had the rosti as a side and the vegi's. The rosti needed seasoning, but was good otherwise. The crab was 2 clusters served with some garlic butter - and by that I mean garlic and butter. There was a quarter of lemon, but it was buried under the crab so I asked for some and squeezed that into the butter. The crab was good, but they made a slit down the main portion of the shell, which made it difficult to get the crab out in one piece. You could smell the oil coming from the kitchen and also, taste it in the vegi's and rosti. Fresh oil would have helped immensely. I tried the curried chicken and it was quite tasty. Also, I ordered red wine and then decided on the crab and I asked after if I could change the order to beef ribs, but the server said they had already started the dish - so no problem. But, astonishingly, she insisted on replacing my glass with a white wine. So, lots of good points for service and the food was tasty as was the desert. I did not feel overly full, which was good. But, it was cold inside the restaurant and the price was a bit steep for what it was. Not sure if we will go back as there are many restaurants to try in the area.
