My sister and husband had been here before and when the time came for a centrally located place in Southwestern Ontario for a special family occasion, the Olde School came to mind.

If you want to be treated with the best Waite staff this is the place to go. Steak and prime rib cooked to perfection and seasoned nicely. Decor is dated but goes well with the one room schoolhouse it used to be. The queen has even dined at The Olde Schoolhouse. Picture hanging around some of which are from when... More

It is an amazing place for a romantic dinner. Not big portions and pricey but excellent food and a great evening out for a special occasion. They have a great Sunday brunch as well for a special occasion with the family or just you and a friend or partner for a late Sunday meal

Went for our anniversary, they brought a special dessert, food was ok, not great for the price. Thought the ambience would be interesting, but ended up not to our taste.

I had a meal with 2 other people, I ordered the rib steak. The beef was very tender but tasteless. The vegetables, were far overcooked. certainly not worth the money. Desert of cake was yummy. Service was excellent. My other two companions were quite satisfied with their pork rib meal.

Nine of us had a family celebration (from a baby to seniors) there. Although the selection isn't huge the food was tasty, fresh and you couldn't beat the price. Still would like to go for dinner or lunch.
