Consistent fare and food from this chain. Service was chipper and prompt, I'm a fussy solo eater and all my requests were perfectly noted and completed. Nothing beats the value of ESM but in this case they had arranged a 10% discount with the local Travelodge Hotel where I was staying, awesome.

Our group of 12 stopped over to have lunch on our way back to Toronto after a 3-day visit to Tobermory. We ordered Riso chicken, Basa, and other dishes. Everyone of us enjoyed the all-you-can-eat salad and soup. Service was great and the food was fabulous in all items that we ordered. We even had extra to carry home.

We have been to this resuarant a number of times and it hasn't disappointed us yet. Was there October 1st and it was very busy however the staff accommodated us without any problems. In my opinion, the waitress went out of her way, as well, to make sure that we were all looked after. We had made reservations for a... More

Have been there several times now and the have never disappointed me. Tried several meals, all were very good. They will adjust the menu to suit you. Prices ? There are specials and coupons online, but price are fair. Service has always been very good and fast. Place looks good and is quite clean I plan to go more.

We go here regularly and never had it been this disappointing. Asked for a booth and the moment we got to the booth, I noticed the table was dirty and the bench was dirty. Leftovers from someone and crumbs. With no server or hostess in sight, I wiped it off myself. Tablecloth is very old and needs to be replaced.... More

What can you expect from a large impersonal chain? The server was wonderful; Listening to me chatter on about the food. The ice tea however, was great!
