We went out on Saturday Night Thought we would try Rankin's it was great. The ribs were awesome, fall off the bone and the value was great. Price are incredible and the service was friendly and the atmosphere was very relax and quite comfortable.. We will definetly be back . I would suggest checking it out if your in the East end of Hamilton.
This was officially the worst night of my life. I have organized a birthday party for my mother's 50th birthday at Edgewater Manor in Hamilton this year. Booked it over the phone, asking if I could invite a violinist to perform for about 15-30 min at the event. Manager said it was no problem. When we arrived noone greeted us, actually we had to go ask around if someone knows where we were sitting, out of 3 people at the front - noone seemed to care.Until a manager showed up and sitted us finally. No high chairs were availiable for my son either. They just didnt have them apperantly... We were in shock...manues or wine cards did not arrive at all. We had to again get up and look for a server to get anything ordered, in the first hour all we recieved was water. Horrible! Then the waiter with greesy long hair said he was not sure about some items on menue being availiable at all. Later on our violinist started his performance. As we proceeded with the dinner - we got asked to be sitted some other place but the main restaurant at least 5 times. I couldnt understand why until manager explained that kids were not allowed in this place! What? It was our fault for bringing my 1 year old bc we didnt warn him (the manager). I said so far its been horrible as is and because of no parking, no waiter, no menues, no highchairs - for the lack of a better word this place was "shitty" - manager started yelling at me in front of other people and demanded the whole party to pack up and leave right this moment including our violinist... I asked what was the problem - they should be happy I hired live music to play at their restaurant. On that his reply was that all guests comlain. How was that even possible??? All the other tables have been giving the guy their business cards all night. After manager yelling some more and me realizing he was not in right mind obviously - I was trying to calm him down already. He finally said that amplifiers were too loud - thats all. Ok we can shut down amplifires then - not kick the whole party out. After doing that, I had to call a driver to take away my baby for the night to babysitter. (Has anyone been kicked out for having a baby???) which was completely unscheduled and cost us a lot on a saturday night - i was in utter shock - started crying outside on the street while waiting for a ride. when i arrived back to the party the waiter said that i should bring dessert platter to the table by myself - really? why was he hired to work at all then i wondered??? Overall $90 per 1 plate and a drink per PERSON! YOUR free glass of champaign didnt compensate all my tears that night EDGEWATER (MANAGER PETER esp) and self sitting, self cake cutting, self-coatcheck, the unstable manager PETER yelling at me, and barwoman trying to tell me not to tell anything to anyone for the reasons of not making it any worse, and finally all the tears on the way back - SHAME ON YOU! HOPE EVERYONE CAN SEE THIS HORRIBLE PLACE OF YOURS FOR WHAT IT REALLY IS AND VERY SOON!!! from the bottom of our hearts. Birthday party disaster!!!!!
Haven't been in a few years so I was surprised to find out they discontinued the beef shawarma on the menu however the chicken thigh meat was tender and excellent in flavour and the pita was loaded with tzatziki sauce and the usual fixings of chopped onion, tomatoes, lettuce etc. Definitely my favourite place in Hamilton for a quality ingredient, very filling shawarma!
and i will open my own Timmys with all my faves that have been discontinued over the years. Actually i found the infamous wedge (hot dog bun shaped concoction with whipped cream) in a Cambridge location. This location at Fennell & Up. Ottawa has the best tasting brew in all of Hamilton -I swear it! Also, I'd serve French Onion Soup at least twice a week (which the Up. Gage & Fennell location just stopped serving) Very hard to find. Found the Strawberry Sensation muffin out in Ottawa this past summer (another hard find!) And lastly, I'd bake the Apple & Cinnamon powdered donut everyday, if I had my own store :)
freshly made to order. no stomache afterwards which is a bonus if you're scheduled to go back to work! I'd say order the steak & green onion (070) I also would order the Pad Thai and breaded scallops. Tempura dipped sweet potatoes are always a favourite. Unfortunately, the wonton soup tastes like melted plastic which could be contributed to the strange plastic spoon served with it. The sushi rolls were beautiful and the dessert of fried bananas and tiramisu are da bomb!
Ordered two shwarmas during peak time late at night. First given the wrong food and I was well aware that our shwarmas were still in the assembly line. The woman behind the counter ushered us into taking the wrong food and proceeded to yell that it was ours, when we knew it wasn't, to get us out of the line. We then stepped aside to check our food, and we were right and were given beef (which we don't eat religiously and took a bite out of) instead of chicken. We went back into line to state the problem and when I made a comment under my breath the man in line began yelling at us about being disrespectful to his mother at the cashier, when he couldn't even be sure of what we had said and did this twice. Overall, horrible experience, shitty service. Our shwarmas weren't even good in the end. Don't start a business unless you know how to professionally deal with people.
Watched a show last night, saw a place called The Harbour Cafe in Hamilton,Ontario. Decided to take a 3 hour drive and have lunch there. When we arrived we were told a 15 minute wait, which was almost 50 minutes standing outside in the cold. Finally got inside, told they serve breakfast until 3 p.m. we could not order off a lunch menu. Had to share a table with other people, small, dirty place. Hydro went out, bathrooms were filthy, service was poor. The food wasn’t good either. We won’t be back…………very disappointed.
After Living in South Korea for over a year I always long to find a resturant that served traditional Korean dishes. Korea House is that place! THe prices are great and two people can eat for under $25 total. The barley tea is also great. They have all the Korean favourites and they are prepared in the traditional way so watch handling your soup bowls. The side dishes are outstanding and they will keep filling them as you ask.
No language barrier here as the staff speak bother fluent English and Korean.
IF you want a spicy filling meal with a low price and a atmosphere that makes you feel at home and welcome then head to Korea house and get your spice on. Have some Kim chi for me!
Decided to eat here and try something new while in Hamilton. We walk in and look at the menu and the girl behind the counter didn't give us any time to decide before saying "what would you like" in a very snarky tone. We said we just needed a minute and she looked very annoyed. We go to the counter and I ordered a filafel pita, and my husband ordered what he wanted. She misheard me and started making a filafel plate instead. She asked me what kind of rice I wanted, Which confused me because she was talking very fast by very quietly, and I said pardon. She looked extremely irritated and said loudly and upset "what kind of rice do you want!!!" I said, I ordered a pita...not rice? She looked VERY upset with me...cause apparently I did something wrong....?she continued to talk very rudely to my husband and I while topping our pitas. So...needless to say...HoRRIBLE service. The food was very bland. My husband had two huge clumps of grizzle in his beef shwarma, and a piece of bone which almost broke his tooth. So...we will never be going back. Also, it was filthy in the restaurant. Dirty floors, grossly stained ceiling, dirty everything. Never again!!!
We love this restaurant....have eaten here atleast 1/2 dozen times in the last year. They may have been having growing pains in 2010, but must've improved over time because we have never had a problem with the food or service at this lovely restaurant in all of 2011. Have had breakfast, lunch and supper here and all meals have been delicious and I'm a picky eater. The burgers are really good, the chicken fingers and fries are delicious, BLT sandwiches are great and the Western sandwiches made with 3 eggs are huge. This is a fabulous local family all day restaurant and hope it stays here forever!!! Way to go Phyl.
Rumak Eatery and Bar (which I'm going to call Rumak's from now on) is a casual sports bar kind-of-place. The place is clean and comfortable, the staff is friendly and accommodating, and the prices are good. I was there on a Wednesday which was 1/2 price wings and $4.50 pints, so I was impressed. Their prices are good even on regular nights. If you like Polish food (perogies, goulash, potato pancakes) then you you should visit. They even serve Polish beer, along with a selection of domestics (bottles and on tap). I've been there twice and will definitely go back. You should check their hours out before you go.
The pizza there is okay. I don't know what the other guy is talking about. The sauce is very good, and the toppings are good, although the dough is a little lacking. It is fresh, I saw the guy roll it himself. The delivery guy was nice too, although the lady at the counter looked like she was miserable. Anyway, you can get any size pizza (including XL) with 4 toppings, and 2 pops for like $15. Although, it comes to $17 even with delivery. Also, you can walk in and get an extra large pizza for 7.50! Its insane! Anyway, solid pizza, really good for the money.
My husband & I were there on a Saturday in Oct. The restaurant is beautiful, but the food service was horrendous. We lucked out & got the ONLY smiling waitress there who brought our menus and coffee just seconds after we sat down. A definite FIRST for us! We waited 55 minutes (the clock was right in front of us enroute to the kitchen.) for a simple BREAKFAST! The sausages were undercooked, the homefries raw and cold and the soft poached eggs were medium to hard, the toast was cold. The ONLY thing that kept us from leaving was the personality of the waitress who apologized frequently, kept the coffee coming and whose sense of humour & jokes kept us entertained. Ok, maybe a bad day in the kitchen. We went back to try it a second time Sunday Nov. 14. The food was a smidgen better but took 45 min. to arrive. At least the homefries were cooked and the over easy eggs were done right. The toast was still cold, the bacon almost raw. The big disappointment was the waitress. Our previous smiling waitress could not be found. No smiles, no coffee without begging and no sense of humor this time around. We won't be back.
Having only dined here once, I can't speak for any other menu items but the all-day breakfast. The waitress was courteous and attentive. I chose the peameal-bacon breakfast with eggs over medium with coffee. The food was delivered promptly, hot, and nicely laid out on the plate. The bacon and eggs couldn't be faulted, nor could the home-fries, Texas toast or orange-slice garnish. Refills of coffee were provided without request. I'll be bringing my girlfriend here for the all-day breakfast later this week. We have a common weakness for good food which is well presented, and good table service.
I'd have no problem recommending Phyl's to my friends of family.
This restaurant is the worst in Hamilton. I had the fish and chips and it tasted like the fish had freezer burn and the fries were soggy. My boyfriend had the surf and turf and he couldn't even eat it because it tasted putrid. The steak was rubbery and the surf well it was frozen popcorn chicken. What kind of home cooking place is this?!! The menu says the gravy is suppose to be home-made so I asked what the ingredients were in it and they gave my a list of ingredients for a packaged beef gravy mix. I was sitting near the kitchen area so I could see in where my food was being prepared and i was flabbergasted when i saw them put the potatoes from a container into a bowl then into the microwave, the same was done with the vegetables and gravy. I don't know why but I decided to stay for desert, blueberry pie it was. So the lady gets the pie out of the fridge behind the bar, which by the was was one that you get from your local grocery store for $5 frozen, and takes it to the kitchen and puts it in the microwave. When I saw that I refused to eat it, I'm not paying $5 for a piece of frozen grocery store pie. So here it is never eat there its pure garbage.
I am now a regular! Bo's sports bar is a pretty good place. It's by a nice busy highway, soo it's very assecible to where I live. The chicken wings are so good! I love the friendly atmosphere they have, the bar tender Jenny always remeber names, and She is so polite!
Impressed on the initial and returning visits, Owner and staff very accommodating and friendly. Orders were prepared exactly as ordered and the price for the portions was excellent. Fantastic size on the Wings and very tasty. Real sports bar atmosphere and seating was no problem.
Recommend to visit Fat Boys if you're looking for good beverages and quick eats.
I'm going to start off with the people that work at this place don't care about there job or how people will view there place if nothing was presented well.Their pizza is like eating cardboard with toppings on it, I asked for double cheese pizza with ground beef and I got the meat but very very little cheese. The other pizza was suppose to be bacon bits,pepperoni and ham. Instead of bacon bits we got real bacon, which what looked to be bacon scraps there was more fat on the pizza then anything else. The only thing that was ok to eat was the wings, well also the garlic bread but I think trained monkeys could put some garlic spread on bread without any problems. Also pizza is always cut by the workers not by us the customers. I never went inside this place so not sure what it looks like, but the guy who delivered to me was a nice guy. I'm never going to this place again, so to people who loves pizza like me don't go here no matter how much you want pizza.
Thanks for taking my money,
Their Specials really are special! The Jack Daniels Burger is a must try, the quality, service and price make this a great value for a night out with friends.
I have tried many Hamilton area pub style restaurants, this is by far my favorite!!!
Initially I tried their British style meat pie, if a pub can do a good one, then I know they are excellent. Their meals are made fresh on the premises, something I insist on when I go out to eat.
The food tasted like it was precooked and then reheated, leaving the chicken balls hard as rock and the rice, crispy and dry.
Also...i wasn't to impressed with the fact that when the kitchen door flung open, i could see some staff sitting on the food prep. table. Not exactly a glowing endorsemant. I give this place a half star.
