One morning after a terrible night's sleep in a local hotel I drove downtown for breakfast at Admiral's. I had the biggest plate of eggs and peameal bacon imaginable. I topped it off with a great milkshake. This breakfast kept me going for hours. I even had a couple of leftover pieces of bacon to snack on later. This place... More

Greasy drunk food comes in no better form than when it comes from Admiral's. A must-eat place for late night drinking. You get a huge portion of food for a very low price. It is great for sharing with friends or a significant other. The only downside to this place is that there are a lot of sketchy people who... More

Admirals is a classic Brantford diner. Been around for years and is known for its large portions (burgers and delicious chip wagon style fries). One thing its not known for is its coffee. I go every day during my morning break and get a large coffee which I find to taste better than Tim Hortons and only costs me $1.65.... More

This is fast food. There is some seating room but I prefer to pick it up. A little outdated with the decor as its been around for a long long time. Make great breaded mushrooms, huge burgers and famous for their submarines.

Admiral's is a Brantford institution. Every Christmas or New Years our kids' friends get together at our house and order in the greasy goodness that is Admiral's food. The "Junkpile" is astonishing...four adults males sometimes have a hard time eating it all...but every kind of basic meat is in it! :-D The deep-fried mushroom and other veggies are amazing. If...

The portions you get here are huge! I don't think I've ever been able to finish what I ordered "in" the restaurant - have always ended up taking 1/2 home. My favorite is the Peameal on a bun - heaps of peameal enough for breakfast the next morning!! LOL And VERY reasonable prices. Staff is super friendly. By far not... More

The portions at this place are honestly so big that you will have difficulty facing it. The food quality itself isn't the best but you get what you pay for. This doesn't mean that it's bad. The people working there are super nice and friendly. This is one of my favourite spots in the dirty B. They're open very very... More

It's a great little corner sub shop with a whole lot more on the menu. Had the Gyro with tzatziki and was stuffed. Not even room for ice cream afterwards.
