All of your standard menu items in Canada. A busy place for breakfast and lunch. Booths out front ...tables in the rear room. Prices are typical. Quality and quantity is typical. Service is fast and friendly. Moderately accessible to wheelchairs.

I had two meals this time, a supper and a breakfast. Both were typically good quality meals at reasonable prices. This family restaurant is always busy, filled with the locals, and the friendly waitresses clearly enjoy their jobs. Check out the many humorous restaurant-related cartoons on the wall.

Came for breakfast, service was fast, food was as expected and exactly what we were looking for - taste great, not pretentious. Will return!

It 's a no nonsense diner, place your order but once you are sitting there, reading the very funny sayings on the signs or getting a little bit of local gossip or a big smile from the waitress or a peek of Gus in the kitchen, you see it's a really nice place. Food was good.

As other reviewers have said this is a throwback restaurant. Really old chairs, booths, and decor. The breakfast wasn't terrible but I kept wishing we'd gone to Timmies instead. The prices are high for what you are getting.

If you're in the mood for a down home meal or just want to catch the flavour of the local yokels stop by and order anything on the menu . You won't be disappointed. Our favourite has been the oven-baked lasagna with lots of cheese and delicious sauce layered over well cooked noodles and meat. There's no room for dessert... More

Had breakfast here one day. Waitress was abrupt - couldn't blame her as the place was packed and she was only one serving. Coffee was decent, but food was swimming in grease. I joked to my husband as we left "I'm gonna pay for that" and sure enough was up all night ill. Would only recommend it if you ve... More

We were trying to get in to "The Harbour" for breakfast but it was a half hour wait so we went up the hill to Gus' s. We had a great traditional breakfast. Big portions and bottomless coffee!Gus is Greek so have a Greek plate if you go for diner. Not a fancy decor but good food.

My wife and I were looking for a place to have lunch and we wondered into Gus's. It was an older restaurant. They had quite a few things on the menu including all day breakfast. I ordered a cheeseburger and my wife ordered a toasted western. My wife said that the western was average . The cheeseburger was not that... More
