A great family restaurant with fresh food. With fish and barbecue chicken they have something for everyone. They also have a seniors special all day. Service is fast and friendly.

Go often for breakfast and a visit. Most meals are very good with a slight glitch now and again (different cooks maybe). Serving staff are always pleasant and that makes for a good atmosphere to start. Premises are clean. Prices are very reasonable in today's market. You can't go too far wrong here folks.

Comfortable Diner perfect place to stop in Lakefield. Excellent Menu, well priced, generous portions, with friendly service. Diner staples, specials of Fish and Chips, Rib Night, Burgers, Salads. We were too full for dessert but nice looking homemade butter tarts and even Sticky Toffee Pudding in the desert case, have to take some home next time.

Tried the Patio seats once but we prefer to eat inside where you are well taken care of.

If you want a filling meal, here is the place to go! Don't overlook it (from the outside it looks kind of cheap/dingy...) For the price, pretty good food. Kind of a nice family restaurant with something for everyone. Nice kids menu and those portions are quite big as well.

Fish and chips (beer battered, maybe? super crispy and nice... tartar sauce is the standard bottled type, I guess), chicken, rack of ribs...served with french fries and garlic bread (somewhat greasy)...they have quite the selection here.

The mussels in white wine cream sauce were delicious. The fish and chips were perfectly crispy and quite tasty. The ribs were good but slightly dry and overbaked (burnt) The sweet potato french fries were worth ordering. The dipping sauce was quite plain but the fries themselves were naturally sweet, crispy and delightful.

The service is friendly and fast. The waitress seemed to be new (some omissions and mistakes) but, we did not mind that much. It's a casual diner kind of place, don't expect fancy restaurant service.

They have a variety of interesting beer on tap, including "barking squirrel" beer - really hilarious! And tasty, might I add!

You'll probably have to doggie bag your food! Either that or order one main, one appetizer and share, I'd say.

Our hotel in Lakefield offered a free continental breakfast so we went down to have a look. Oh boy! Windowless conference room, fluorescent lights, cold cereal, toast, fruit, yogurt etc etc. Forget that, I need some grease! The receptionist referred us to Jack's and we walked the few blocks past nice old century homes on the water. The restaurant was about half full and we were seated immediately. The breakfast menu has everything from basic bacon and eggs to banana bread french toast. I opted for an omelet which included fries and toast. It was huge - couldn't even touch the fries. My fellow diners had all ordered different things and everyone enjoyed their meal. Would definitely go back to Jack's. Oh, and the one thing we didn't get was grease!
