  • We walked in the place needs a total scrub down. It is just descustingly dirty. We went to the washrooms, I have seen gas station washrooms look cleaner. How discusting. We ordered the roast beef dinner, I think my shoe would have been easier to eat. We asked for a Steak knife to cut it the waitress was not too impressed and neither were we. The waitress did not look like she enjoyed her job and I guess the owner a portirican fellow was just yelling and screaming. Not a place where you would want to take children.

  • Order: Roast Beef, Mashed (dark), veg and a little piece of pie

@MilvertonFoodie814:
1) - you should have used the contraction "it's" instead of "its" in your first sentence. 2) - you misspelled "assessment" as "assement" so using your own logic no one should take your critique of ironman seriously.

  • We gave this place a chance and thought it couldn't be too bad as it is right near downtown Stratford with its range of excellent eateries.

    Oops - wrong. Totally uninspired in every way. Do they play up the "Diner" theme? No. Is it at least cheap? Not especially. Is there interesting music? Ugh, no - classic "lite" rock.

    And they were actually out of buns for the burger I ordered - which would have been entirely flavourless if not for the condiments (which I had to ask for as they don't have anything except for white vinegar on the tables.

    Do yourself a favor and walk a couple hundred extra meters to York Street... or Tango... or Features... or Sirkel...

  • Order: Grilled Cheese, Burger, Fries

  • We sat down at a table with the place about half full, and were ignored by the serving staff. No water, menu, not even a hello.

    The server walked by us 3 times, then proceeded to bus other tables and reset them.

    We left.

  • Order: never got to

  • The portions were too small for the price. Rice wasn't cooked enough. I found hair in my cabbage roll.
    Discusting place, no wonder they went out of business and were replaced by Joe's Dinner (but even they aren't very good either).

  • Order: Chicken breast with rice and corn. Cabbage rolls with rice and corn
