  • So we came to the restaurant (there are 4 of us) and it was something that we haven't been for a long time. Everything was going fine, until my sister called and said that she was coming. The server was so rude and she was not pleased to know that my sister and her bf was going to join us. She was also asking if she was in town, on her way, etc., which I think it was none of her business.

    She kept on insisting that they were closing since it's quiet, etc. We got our food, and it was ok... just a bit greasy. Then our server kept on insisting on the people just came in that they were going to close any minute, and she was starting to get furious. I even heard her say "Look at all these people" when she passed by me and saw more people. She should have been happy that there were customers that came. Because of this, I'm not too sure of coming back. It was ok until it lasted to today.

  • Green Acres is a family tradition for the last ten years. Each Good Friday and a handful of times throughout the year we travel from Niagara Falls, Ontario to Fort Erie for the sole purpose of eating their fish and chips. The service is always fantastic and the food reasonably priced and excellent. We'll be visiting again this Good Friday and my stomach is already grumbling. My only complaint is that the fish and chips is so good, I never order anything else on the menu. Never-the-less, other family members have and swear by the taste and massive portions.

  • This restaurant was recommended by several people, so my sister and I decided to check it out for lunch. We stopped for gas and asked the attendant if he ate there and he told us we would not be disappointed and we sure were not. The place is old but I liked it because it feels homey and its a great conversation piece as there were many pics/plaques on the walls. The service was great from the time we walked in until we left. The food was worth the drive from The Falls. I would highly recommend the beef barley soup, never had soup like that before and I sure will order it when my sister and I return with our families.

  • Order: beef barley soup,chicken fingers/fries .. hot turkey sandwiich

  • I agree with RobM on this page. Read his it makes me giggle.
    Sorry...It's just not a great place to eat people. My husband use to eat there when he was a kid and remembered that as good.( probably because he got a chocolate milk shake). We went there not long ago and it just wasn't the same.
    Old ,dirty, dusty and just Yucky.
    We had the famous fish and chips. They tasted funny from the start. I couldn't even finish mine. My husband Finished HIS but lets just say HE PAID Twice For His FISH (he got sick people).

  • We've ate here many times. It's closed on Mondays and Tuesdays and for a couple of months in the winter. If you get there at supper hour, you might have to wait from 20 min.-1 hour so be prepared. The staff are nice and work hard. They also have 2 sides not advertised-peaches and pickled beets. No baked potatoes at lunch. Lots of good food there but their spaghetti is not to our liking.

  • Order: hot turkey sandwich, Caesar salad, hot roast beef sandwich, fish & chips

  • First of all when we walked in we were completely ignored, and then the waitress screwed up my mom's order. After my mom told her that her order was wrong the waitress thought it was a good idea to go to the other side of the wall and speak very rudely about my mom to her co-workers. The service was awful, servers were extremely rude and the food was no where near good enough to make up for it. Fish was super greasy and undercooked and my mom (after she got her proper meal) got sick from it. Will never go back there and suggest that you don't either.

  • Order: two fish dinners and a open face turkey sandwich

  • My mother and grandmother were phenomenal cooks. Anyone who thinks this is family-style cooking has never had real family-style cooking. Advice to those who believe this place serves good food: You need to get out of Fort Erie once in awhile!

    The food is cheap and plentiful because it's store bought and reheated. Just because they pile it onto your plate does not mean it tastes good. If you crave spaghetti as a side, any Italian restaurant should meet your needs.

    The waiting lines were ridiculous, the service was slow and the checkout girl seemed "challenged".

    The place looks like a haunted house. To call the decorum dated would be an understatement! The interior looks like it hasn't been updated since the Great Depression which probably explains why the majority of their patrons appear to be senior citizens.

    Do yourself a favor. Instead of waiting 2 hours to eat reheated slop on a plate, drive to Niagara Falls, St. Catharines or even cross the border into Buffalo where you will find a variety of real dining establishments.

  • Order: Chicken, roast beef, fish

  • I'd first like to mention that anyone that comes in this place and doesn't have the food experience of their lifetime is seriously disturbed. I have never eaten at a place where I can order SPAGHETTI as a SIDE!! For anyone that's a big eater, this is your place to be. I would definitely classify myself as a big eater, and this is actually my favourite restaurant. My boyfriend took my here for valentines day and I couldnt have asked for anything better! We came out of there eating enough food for at least 4 people for $12 a person, after taxes. The service was FAST and the food was actually to die for. It's like going to your grandmother's house for dinner except 50 times better. I've been several times but the most recent time was this past valentines day. My boyfriend has the one piece fish dinner (the one piece was enough, believe me!) with mashed potatoes and the house salad as sides. I had the open faced turkey sandwich which came with homemade stuffing and cranberry sauce AS WELL AS two more sides. I chose the salad and the spaghetti. I have never eaten so much food in my entire life, I couldn't stop eating it was so delicious. I ate the ENTIRE thing. It was disgusting how much I ate really.. but that isn't the point. The server seemed to be impressed at how well we did with our plates as most people that come in can barely even get to their sides after their gargantuan entrees. Everytime I come here my stomach and I are both VERY satisfied with everything. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING family dining!

  • Order: fish, open faced turkey dinner

  • Don't go in expecting gourmet, high class food. Its just simple good comfort food. I love the roast beef and chicken parm. Decently priced. However service can be a little bit slow. The decor does need a bit of an update. Whenever My boyfriend and I are in the mood for huge portions of good simple comfort food we always go there.

  • Order: roast beef, chicken parm

  • I have been going to this family establishment since I was about 10 years old and now bring my son and husband with me. We enjoy the food and wonderfully kitschy atmosphere......brings back great memories! The wait can be long sometimes since they did away with reservations but we don't mind!

    I hope Mr. Coates the owner never closes it......it is a part of many of our lives and wonderful memories!

    Our families favourite comfort food restaurant!

    Keep up the good work Mr. Coates!

  • Order: Open face roast beef, open face hot hamburger, roast beef dinner, rice pudding, apple pie with ice cream
