We recently visited this restaurant and was so pleasantly surprised on how great the food was. I ordered the steak wrap and my daughter ordered the steak and fried onion sandwich with soup. They were both so good and full of flavour. The soup was so good and tasty that everyone at our table wanted some. My husband had the... More

The food was okay, but not great. The service was terrible. Waited 45 mins just to have our order taken and an additional 35 mins to get our food. The server was unapologetic and disinterested.

I have been coming here with my social group for well over a year now & I have steadily seen a downturn in the service, whereby it can take anything from 30-50 minutes just to have your order taken. Yes, we may be with a group of people but we always have reservations so they're aware we're coming. If one... More

There's a small eating area on the left, a larger bar area on the right and an outside patio. We sat in the old fashioned diner area, and listened to the oldies music play in the background. Overall a pleasant experience with a great tasting, hearty home cooked meal. Service was great and patient with us because there was so... More

We went to Melanie Pringle's for the second time. The food is always great and the atmosphere cheery. The folks who waited on us were pleasant and very friendly. The restaurant was clean and we were seated right away. It was moderately busy but everything and everyone worked in a timely fashion. I will be returning.

We went for their Monday special where you get a burger and fresh cut fries for $6.99. The burger was big and juicy and didn't have all kinds of filler in it that often makes the pattie all mushy. It comes on a nice toasted bun with pickle, tomato, and lettuce and two huge battered onion rings on the top.... More

Wow, huge portions, great food and wonderful menu options. 50's dinner ambience and very courteous servers. Quick delivery of your order and served hot. The Caesar salad was cool, crisp and not over saturated with dressing. The Yorkshire pudding was so awesome that I paid to take an extra one back to my hotel room. I would definitely eat there...

Came here for lunch and had a long wait before being seated. Not because it was busy, because there were no staff in sight. Our server didn't speak to us, it was extremely minimal. Took a drink order for two of the three of us and left. She attended to another table who came in after us, told them the... More
