As always, the food was good. But what pulled this rating down was the wait staff. The restaurant was fairly quiet, with many empty tables, but she spoke as though she was in a rush. I had the sense that she wasn't fully there... quite...More

This was our first time at Gertie's and we loved it. The menu prices may be $1 or $2 higher than comparable restaurants, but the ambiance, service and menu choices make this small difference worth it. Our waitress was only on her second shift at...More

Every time we go there, we are not disappointed. The food is great and so is the atmosphere. Always busy. Great service. We have had many items from the menu. Our favourites are warm salad and the meatloaf! Excellent.

We had a lovely dinner at Gerti's. I was expecting a pub from the exterior, but it is more upscale, beautiful shining wood, friendly, warm staff, good service and great food. This might be our new favourite Peterborough restaurant. Price was reasonable, not inexpensive, but...More
