I was in with a group last Thursday evening and was very disappointed in the attitude of the bartender, Amanda. She had zero patience for us who were having a good time and was extremely disrespectful to the young server who I found out had only been working there a couple of weeks, to the point of upsetting her. I... More

We wanted to try something new, so we went to the mad hatter. We have been back a few times now and have never been disappointed. Our first visit we both had different specials and both were really good, fresh and reasonably priced. Second time we took advantage of half price appetizers before 530, wings were large and meaty, spinach... More

Went to Orangeville this weekend for my sisters birthday on Saturday and decided to stay at a motel a few nights so I could be shown a few sites and try out the local cuisine. My sister and her husband took me for dinner at this restaurant, which is called the Mad Hatter now, and I was extremely thrown back... More

My family and friends had a surprise Birthday Party for me on March 19, 2016. The staff did such an amazing job!!!! Food, service, hospitality was exceptional. A great time had by all with Darren Carr as the singer and guitarist. I would recommend the Hatter for a get together/party for sure!!!!!!!

Tried the Ruby Pier for lunch. The atmosphere is average at best and the service was wonderful. I had the shepherds pie which was quite tasty. The rest of the menu looks good and will certainly be back to try other dishes. Recommended!

Trying to be an upscale gastro pub but the old menu is the best. I think the owner recognizes this as both menu's are available or any combination of both. Great raspberry wheat beer on occasion, great pub menu of the Mad Hatter, not a fan of the Ruby Pier menu. Around a long time in Orangeville.

This restaurant appears to have two names we booked for 14 for lunch at the Mad Hatter name.The service regrettably was very poor partly due to the fact that all our party did not arrive on time (12.00) and partly because the restaurant did not have the staff to cope with a party of 14. The waitress tried but seemed... More

I came here tonight with my boyfriend and our experience was extremely lack lustre. I ordered the lobster linguine ($22) which was fairly tasty...however my boyfriend ordered the fish and chips, ($15.)

I agree with you! Right now out fish and chips are not up to our expectations either. Unfortunately there is an extreme shortage of Halibut on the entire market. We use up to 4 different suppliers to get our high quality Halibut. We usually get the entire side of fish and hand cut our own. These are unavailable from all... More
