If you happen to be in Woodview ontario and you happen to be hungry, you really can't do better for great food than Uncle George's. In fact you may want to make a reservation to ensure that you get one of less than 10 tables. Go for the prime rib. If you lack the basic understanding that properly cooked prime... More

Good selection of entrees and home-made ingredients. Best to reserve space as seating capacity is limited.

I think a number of people were worried when George sold the food would suffer but he trained a few of the staff how he cooked and we couldn't tell the difference. There is a menu but you generally have to ask for it if nothing on the board's specials appeals to y. The prime rib is always good and... More

We had wanted to try this place for a long time. We have a cottage on Baptiste so have driven by a lot over the past number of years but always have a dog so stopping isn't much of a option. We were on our own so decided to give it a go. It is a very small place. Fortunately... More

The hostess wasn't very nice. We asked if they had food to go since we were traveling and she made no effort to accommodate or to redirect us. She wasn't friendly at all. We left. The menu was varied but more pricey than what we were looking for in terms of a quick bite on the way home. A better... More

A local friend recommended this restaurant, it is close to her cottage, and we tried it to celebrate a birthday. Our party of 4 arrived around 5:30, and didn't realize that a reservation is helpful,as there are only 10 tables, we thought it was just a roadside diner. It's a cozy looking place, very rustic, and the food is fantastic.... More

I have frequented Uncle Georges restaurant on many occasions on the way to the cottage and enjoyed the experience up until yesterday. My understanding is George has retired and someone else is running the place. The beef dip sandwich was so rare the bun was drenched with blood. When I politely informed the waitress she agreed it was too rare... More
