This is the 2nd worst place I’ve eaten at in Sarnia. The cream soup had clumps of wet flour through it, the toast in my sandwich was literally soggy, and the other food order was absolutely disgusting and ended up being thrown out. Staff was...not friendly at all. I had heard so much about this place but my first time here will definitely be my last. I will never waste my time nor money here again!More

Been going to John’s for many years. John’s has a great family dinning setting and always great food. “Only one” bad experience on a takeout order but that was rectified on the mention of it. The staff are always polite but some waitresses could be...more tentative sometimes forget your sitting there and could pick up dirty dishes more than they do. John’s is our go to for a great always good home cooked meal. I do wish they had strip bacon tho and we’d go for breakfast, hubby won’t go for breakfast for this reason.More

We were a party of 10, got seated quickly at 2 adjacent tables which we were pleased with . Our servers were such a pleasure , always on top of coffee refills and checking in on us to see if we needed anything. Food was...typical breakfast food Eggs, bacon, omelettes, pancakes etc which was all wonderful. We will definitely return next time we’re back in Sarnia !More

Nice selections of beer. Had the Buffalo Chicken sandwich (grilled) with rice as a side. Had coleslaw and two slices of dill pickles. Chicken was a piece of chicken. Not a pressed product. Was absolutely tasty!!!Patio restricted due to COVID. Staff did a great job...considering all the rules. Definitely will head there again when in the area.More

My wife ordered prime rib dinner for mother's Day take out and received roast beef. My salad was good and my kids meal was huge but ordering one thing and getting another is just unacceptable.
