We love the atmosphere of the old train station.Server was great and helped us to make the perfect choices. One had salmon, two had the perch and pickerel, and on had the veal marsala. Portions were plentiful and so, so tasty. Love going there.

This restaurant is in a fully-restored railway station in Kingsville, Ontario, a block or two off the main street. Recommended by our host Deb at the excellent Wentzler's Landing B&B, the food and the service were excellent, the historical building fascinating, and the atmosphere friendly, quiet and relaxing.

With a good variety of foods, from pasta to beef to seafood, the chef clearly enjoys and took pride in his work, with the local perch and pickerel the best I have ever had, my wife's penne athena also very tasty, and the soup! - OMG! - beet with coconut milk soup! We were tempted to order several servings it was so good! The wine selection was good, with several local reds and whites on the list. Pricing was modest, lower in fact than it should be for such a high quality restaurant.

So, there you go - a real gem, off the beaten track - I highly recommend it to those looking for a quiet time and an excellent meal! And thanks to the staff at Mettawas Station for such an enjoyable experience!

This is our second time going here. Just like the first time, everything was excellent, from the hostess being very pleasant and knowledgeable to the EXCELLENT food. I've recommended Mettawa's numerous times to my friends and will continue to do so in the future, as well as eat there. It is a AWESOME restaurant with incredible food. Whatever they're doing to make it a great restaurant, DON'T CHANGE A THING!

We experienced a rather long wait but their were many people both inside and outside and there appeared to be only two waiters, that may have caused the delay. Once our food was delivered, we all found it to be very enjoyable. We all plan to visit again.

We tried to get a dinner reservation but had to settle for Lunch as we didn't call earlier, even so things worked out for us !! Thank You Jean

The Mettawas is a very unique dining establishment - originally a train station, it keeps the charm with the hardwood floors and decor. The food was very fresh and local. I loved my Blackened Cod Entree and the Flat Bread appetizer was delicious. I recommend this to anyone looking for a cozy dining experience!

We were fortunate in having an outside table, as usual as excellent service by our server Bruno. Two of us had the Train Wreck Sandwich which made us quickly understand why it was Mettawas' award-winning sandwich! The three of us thoroughly enjoyed our time at Mettawas and will definitely return. We were particularly impressed with our server Bruno.
