The period of August 2 through 9, 2017 was our first time in Stratford. We enjoyed all of the theatre performances we saw, but had found most of our dining experiences (at the establishments in the downtown area) acceptable but rather mediocre. Interestingly, we took...More

Used to really enjoy Foster's but the menu choices and the execution appear to have slid in recent years. Went for lunch this year and my grilled cheese with bacon was barely toasted and the bacon was barely cooked. The gazpacho side soup was flavorful...More

This seems to cater more to younger folk. We simply had a burger because we were short of time, but it was excellent and the server attentive. Apparently one needs a reservation - it started to fill up around 5:45 - 6:00

We went for dinner with our kids before a show. We had lots of time. This was good because it was a long, leisurely dinner. The food was very good. My son recommends the fried chicken. Steak was great. Nice desserts. Service was efficient but...More

The burger was fantastic. Nice variety of menu items. Caesar salad was fresh, crisp and enough for 2 as an appetizer. Pleasant atmosphere. Fantastic location just steps from the Avon Theatre and around the block from the Studio Theatre.

We were looking for a quick bite before our show at the Avon theatre and this is right next door! Food was good - their soup of the day and fries were delicious. Staff was friendly and attentive.

This restaurant was busy between shows at the Avon Theatre. Obviously a popular place. I just had the burger and fries and it was tasty (the bun was a bit on the plain side but...) Friendly service. Great atmosphere. Street-side patio.
