We visited here a number of times during our stay. All the food was good and the portions were large. Quick friendly service. You can also just pop in for a quick bite and a drink if you don't want a large meal.

We have been and loved this restaurant in the past; however, last Friday night we waiting 1.5 hours to get two burgers and two chicken burgers. We then had to wolf down our food because we had somewhere to be. $110 for burgers and pop doesn't cut it.

We went for a late lunch. The menu was very much geared toward dinner at that time of the day. Not much lighter fare available. What we did order came out timely and hot. The service was friendly. I think it would be better to go for dinner. We will try that next time.

Worst experience ever at this restaurant. We were greeted by the manager who lied to us and said there was a 10 minute wait and offered to sit us at the bar until a table was ready. There were several tables available for the entire time including the time spent waiting for service. Clearly a staffing problem that couldn't keep... More

This is a favourite spot to meet friends. The customer service is always friendly and excellent. The food is fresh, full of flavour, and showcases the best of this area. They may be in a small town, but this is definitely gourmet eating. If you think it's a long way out, think again - it's only 10 minutes outside of... More

I have had a couple burgers here and they are great. They bring the burger out of a pub grub state and goes almost gourmet. Exceptional locally sourced ingredients help make there burgers fantastic. My wife appreciated the gluten free buns as well. If I have a craving for a burger, I hit this place up. Fantastic.

On a very cold winter's night 10 of us struck out for Wellesley from Fergus, Baden and Kitchener to celebrate a birthday. Our group's ages ranged from 3 to 59, with four children and six adults. One adult had a highly restricted diet she had to follow for medical reasons. I ordered a steak with Caesar salad. It came with... More

This visit was for lunch on a Tuesday. Not busy so service and wait for our drink and food order were not an issue. Both a lunch and draught beer special were offered. Gerenous lunch portion at a reasonable price. Converted from what I remember as the Royal Hotel which was a main street attraction. Good selection on the menu.... More

We stopped by after going for a ride in the country. You feel like you're walking into John Wayne's saloon when you enter: decor with the "old west" feeling, right down to the cowhide seats. We both ordered their burgers and were not disappointed. We asked for "medium well" (no pinkness) and they were done to perfection. The toppings included... More

Wish I had read reviews before going. Meal took 2+ hours on a quiet Monday. Several staff standing around doing nothing. Dirty plates sat on table for 20min. We were celebrating a birthday so wanted dessert- that took another 45min. The weirdest part was when the manager came by and cleared the table for his servers, but never asked "how... More
