Loved the location and the restaurant itself. The food was o.k. ( not wonderful ) but the dessert ( pecan pie ) was terrible. The crust was hard and dry with pecans on top. We couldn’t find any filling and we couldn’t eat it. Was told to order the black Forrest cake next time. Will come again but would order differently.

Service was great.
We were expecting larger portions. We were expecting large portions like Lancaster Smoke House.
Food was good except for saurkraut.
Saurkraut was disappointing.

I had made a reservation far in advance but when we got there, they did not have a table outside for us. They wanted us to sit at a table right by the front but the inside was not busy. We requested and were seated in a booth. My friend had schnitzel which she said was good but the sides were not hot. I had the beef brisket. It was ok. There was quite a bit of fat and gristle in the meat. The BBW sauce was very average. The portions were huge which I don’t like. Lastly, I know they have to make up for Covid but a 9 oz glad of Australian wine was $20. Overall, I will not be returning.

The basic accoutrements are pleasant but simple. The Schnitzle was very tender, well presented with the sauce. Cook would be wise to add a thin gravy to the spatzle as it is quite dry and the limited amount of sauce just doesn't cover it.

Food was very good, partly from local suppliers and largely prepared in house. The menu was pricey though but I guess quality costs.

We have eaten before at the restaurant. But this time there seemed to be some inconsistency in the recipes. The food was over spiced. I’m not sure I will be going back considering the value equation. There are other options. Consistency is very important to me.

After an hour wait our food arrived cold and the meat dried out. The only thing warm were the fries. We let our server know and she took our plates back. A woman who never introduced herself came to our table asking if they could reheat the food and offered free dessert. We were worried the meat would come out even drier and asked for fresh food. She said it would be a 40 minute wait. We were so disappointed! She didn’t seem too concerned about rectifying the issue Of making us wait almost two hours for food. And it was my boyfriend’s birthday as well. Such a disappointment. They ended up comping our overpriced drinks and giving us a $50 gift card. We left the restaurant after an hour and a half still hungry and hit up the poke box in Waterloo for a delicious fresh and hot meal. Unlike your restaurant!

The offer of platters of the main course (variety of meats) should provide an estimate to the customers as to how many servings each platter will feed. It is very confusing when you look at the menu and see the three choices of the numbers of meats and number of sides that come with the package. When you attend with a group this would help in choosing what menu item to pick. I really enjoyed the new decor inside the restaurant and the outside tables in the middle of July offer a choice to customers.

The food was great. I ordered the tater tot poutine as an “appetizer”. I feel it was too large of a portion for one person. The option for a smaller/cheaper size would be a good idea. The outdoor seating was great. We were sat next to the window with 2 booths inside. Felt like we were sitting with them though. Other than that I would/will return.

It’s hard to write a review during “covid” as we were sitting beside tents that were flapping in the wind.
Overall everything was great! Loved the cornbread. We will definitely be back. The chicken was juicy and crunchy. The portions are big so b hungry when you get there

Platter sides need tweaking. Coleslaw was soupy and bland. Braised cabbage wasn’t great either. Would be great to see a rib dinner option.

Our server was outstanding. I loved the fact he called me Miss, not Ma'am. Knew his menu well and was spot on about the flavourful pickle chips! It was however very noisy in the tent, but to be honest, it was nice to know so many people were getting out now. Trout was beautiful but I feel a little over priced as it was just the mini greens and 3 slices of cold potatoes. Would go back again though.

Crowsfoot was awesome! Lots of space (still in stage 1 of lock down). Server was awesome! Great team work with all staff! The food was amazing and fairly priced. 2 adults and 2 children shared a plate and we had plenty of left overs! Highly recommended and can't wait to go back!
