Lovely from start to finish, great old building, patio. Such a pretty sweet young blonde waitress, did not get her name. Fantastic food, every course and beautifully presented, wish we lived nearer, we would be in a lot to sample more interesting dishes.
Well Done to you all and thanks for a special anniversary dinner.

my wife and father and I enjoyed our experience and would recommend Mettawas to all friends and family. we treated with courtesy and care. we felt at home and enjoyed the meal very much. i encourage all visitors as well as all our Essex county residence to make the Mettawas station a destination for any occasion, but for the important ones especially.

The food was terrific and the service was great. The beer on tap is challenging. I asked for a lager and clarified that again only to get a bitter tasting IPA. I love my beer but that one was painful. Caesar salad had very little dressing on it. Very dry..... I didn't make a big deal but if I'm asked to review it, I'm going to address it.

The only complaint we had was our waitress. Took a long time to come and give us the specials and take our drink order. She wasn't really friendly or welcoming. Placed our drink order and then didn't see her again. She got the drink order wrong and then tried to say we didn't order right. When we order appetizers the first couple order and she was about to walk away thinking that's all we wanted. We had to stop her a number of times like that when we wanted to place other orders. She was way too much in a hurry. Other than the waitress everything else was awesome. Great venue & tasty food.

Excellent restaurant. Fun atmosphere although it can get loud as it's small. Food was fantastic, portions were perfect in size, not too big or small. Never had to look for our waitress, she checked up on us often, could be a good thing or annoying depending on what you prefer. Would definitely go back.

We had attempted to walk in without a reservation the night before but they were all booked at 5:15pm except for the outdoor dining so we made a reservation for the following evening (the host warned of bees and we're glad we listened to him, we saw they were a real problem!). We were seated instantly, the host remembered us from the previous night and we joked about having a reservation this time.

The waitress was over with water within minutes and kept up attentive service throughout our time there. She was able to answer our questions about the gluten free options and helped us decide on the best dishes for us.

We were overly impressed with their sensitivity to gluten free guests- they brought out regular bread for our guest who wasn't gluten free and special bread for the three of us who were! We had a range of menu items (salmon, steak and pasta) and every dish was superb. We were sad we hadn't left room for the gluten free cheesecake and will definitely be back to try it out!

Overall one of our favorite experiences in Kingsville so far. I highly recommend Mettawas, and make sure you have a reservation!

We are not from the area but we rent a cottage, annually. We traditionally go out for a nice meal on our last night before heading home. Had not known or heard of your restaurant before since you are off the beaten track. We were 4 adults, a baby and a child of 8. Server was friendly and welcoming; food choices met everyone's desire. Only two small negatives - thought for a place like this a separate fork should have been offered between salad and main course. {not a big deal}, and we waiting for water refills, for quite some time. Had to keep asking but it was very busy. We would definitely consider returning and will recommend to friends who visit Kingsville.
Many thanks.

Wonderful restaurant & will definitely come back
