  • The former "Causal Dining" in Rockwood was reopened this week under new management and a slightly altered name, now" Rockwood Family Casual Dining", after being closed for 5 months. We dined there a number of times in the past and considered it to be a good choice for local dining and so were disappointed with the closure but optimistic when we heard they were opening again.

    We went for an early dinner on a Wednesday evening. Changes to the decor provided a welcomed fresh appearance as was the the look and variety of the new menu. We were greeted and seated promptly by our server (a familiar face from past visits) and our drinks and food orders were processed quickly. My wife ordered a Julienne salad and I chose the Philly melt sandwich. The salad and sandwich portions were quite generous and nicely presented. Dressing choices for the salad were all "home -made" and all ingredients fresh and tasty. The sandwich was excellent, beef done just right on an nicely toasted roll with choice of fries or salad on the side. A great meal , friendly service and good value. Looking forward to further sampling the many menu offerings on future visits. What was always a favourite local restaurant for us continues to be so, but better! Kudos to the new team!

  • Order: salad and sandwich

  • My wife and i had a very disappointing dinner here. We both ordered the steak, it was extremely salty. we couldn't eat it, our server response was... "Oh people like it that way" (YEAH RIGHT) I have worked in restaurants over the years, i have never had a customer ask for a steak to be extra salty. Not worth the drive from Guelph. Wont go ever again.

  • Order: steak

  • Our family's favourite restaurant. We have never had a bad meal. It is such a cosy quaint atmosphere. They have mastered the use of their small space to create an inviting experience. Don't let the outside fool you.

  • Order: We have had it all but wings, ribs, solvaki is amazing

  • I eat everywhere, because I travel everywhere for my work. In my experience find a restaurant that has mastered the balance between great tasting well prepared food with good respectful service is hard to find.
    Angry people with bad attitudes eating at restaurants well they're a dime a dozen. I've eaten at CFD countless times. Without a doubt I know when I go there I'll be completely satisified.
    If you're in a hurry let them know they'll take care of you.
    Now if you're accustomed to or prefer dining in anal retentive environment surrounded by preoccupied individuals looking just to refuel...then you'll probably want to choose somewhere else....please choose somewhere else.
    But if you're looking for a great tasting meal, that's actually prepared for you when you order it, for warm flexible servers, a menu selection for your every mood from french fries (best I've ever tasted ) to filet mignon, and all prepared with love then this an absolutely must for you. Caution...you too may become a regular.

  • Order: liver and onions, what haven't I tried?

  • Was very, very disapointing dinner.There was 10 people at our table. When we sat down the wait staff did not offer a menu, we had to borrow one from another guest. All of our appetizers and meals came at different times. One of the guests at our table had lamb and it was uncooked, the center was red and bloody. Our service was horrible. I would suggest to not waste your time on this one!

  • Order: Escargots, calamari, onion soup, souvlaki
