    Foows good, service was very slow, had to ask the server for the coffee refill. They missed one of the Meals and an add on for another. Near the end of the meal, the AC was turned on very cold and we were rebuffed by the manager when we asked to have it turned down

    Fun and nostalgic. Went with a family of four kids loved the movie playing on the screen and all of the knickknacks to observe both kids loved their kids meals. My wife got the veggie bowl which was extremely tiny and a little overpriced for what you get I got the fried chicken sandwich, which was delicious

    Thank you for your accommodations. Bartender was very friendly and personable, I believe her name is Maggie. Party was for 7pm but room wasn't ready for 7pm and we were all gathered at the front for a bit...

    Hi Shawna- Thanks again for having your Christmas party with us! You and a few of your guests arrived 1/2 hour early which is why the room wasn't ready yet, but it was 100% ready for your 7pm reservation time. Wishing you and the Infarm team a Happy Holiday!

    The restaurant was very neat and the ambiance was great. However I have to say we were very disappointed with the service. We were four adults and two young children and showed up a few minutes before our reservation, we were seated right away. We ordered within a few minutes of sitting down and we sat and sat and sat for an hour and a half before we got a single meal. Even the drinks took about a half an hour to receive. There were four groups of people who showed up after us who all got served quickly and left before we even got our meals. I feel like because the tip was already included, we got left behind and we were last priority on their list. We were also really disappointed that the tip was already included because I don’t think we should have paid what we did for the service that was provided to us.

    We held a team lunch for 13 of us at Electric Diner and they were fantastic to work with. We chatted beforehand and due to our tight timing, we pre-ordered meals. The meals arrived quickly after we were settled with drinks and came out together so no one was left waiting. The staff were attentive and accommodating and were able to capture all of our orders and bills accurately. I heard everyone chatting about how good their meals were after we left. We'll plan on coming back.

    The speed of service was atrocious. The server barely came around. We wanted to order a 2nd drink but we finished our meal before the server was seen again. Then we had to literally search for them to request our bill, and then wait to pay while the server argued with other tables complaining about the service- they had to leave for a show before their food was ready- nearly an hour after they ordered hamburgers. The staff were arguing with them instead of just correcting or addressing the problem. Apparently someone didn’t show up in the kitchen, causing a delays, but this easily be relayed to customers so they can have appropriate expectations or go elsewhere if necessary. Cool decor but unfortunately I would not return to or recommend this location.

    Everything was great, had breakfast before which was fantastic. Came back again for dinner this time, we had the Electric burger which was really good, and also the chicken burger and the fish and chips. The chicken was really tender and tasty, a little bit less crumbs would be ideal. Same story with the fish there was a lot of batter, very little fish in comparison to the breading and it was a little over-fried but nonetheless, great food and an amazing atmosphere.

    I went here for my birthday. They were out of the gin cocktail my sister and I wanted to try. We went to order and they were also out of the appetizer we wanted. I opted for the Brussel sprouts. My sisters meal came out, mine did not. We waited over 25 mins and my order still had not come out. My sister was done her meal. We were going to a concert and I only had a few mins left before we had to leave so I ended up taking the Brussel sprouts with me, and had to eat them after the concert. I found the whole experience confusing, as there was only one other table of customers in the restaurant.

    My friends and I were excited to try the food here but we were disappointed unfortunately. My friend returned her milkshake, it was more on the milky than creamy side. The waitress recommended I try the fried chicken mac and cheese. It was ok but not worth 21$ My friends were not fans of the poutine either, the gravy was not hot. The retro vibe was nice though. Wish I could say I'll be headed back but it's a negatory for me. The food looked great aesthically but lacked flavor and hot temperature you'd expect.

    A social eatery that acts as a time capsule to the mid 80's and has the tunes and vibrance to match. The service is fast, considerate, and with a smile and the food was outstanding on every front.

    Staff were friendly, food was good, background music was a bit loud and not my taste…it was very hot outside so we requested an indoor table which they were able to do because they weren’t very busy at the time however the table was right in front of a window with the sun glaring in which made it very hot plus it was right beside the wait staff work centre which made it very busy. Overall food was good not great staff were friendly and accommodating but the atmosphere was uncomfortable. It’s a good place to go for a burger and fries but the environment may not be for everyone.

    My wife had been to he electric diner before and she wanted to take me there. The service was wonderful, the food was as advertised and cooked properly as per my taste, and the staff worked as a team. The only issue I had was that if I had used my wheelchair that day I would not have been able to get in as the out door patio blocked the accessible ramp into the restaurant. It was good that I had a fine day (I suffer MS) and could use my cane. I made the staff aware of the situation. All in all a pleasant experience.

    Excellent little spot on a traffic-free street in the centre of Hamilton. Lauren was an amazing hostess (prompt and personable and very flexible as we decided to move inside from our patio seat due to hornet/wasp season). Andrew was an excellent server. Menu and food was good and reasonably priced. I would recommend this diner for brunch.

    Absolutely delicious lunchtime with a grilled cheese and poutine. Upstairs was bustling with people, took a good 10 minutes for the waiter to arrive which was a little slow. But once our order was in, the food came quickly and was very fresh!

    The food was good. It took a while for someone to take our drink order then when we did order we got a different server and he had our food out before the first server even brought our drinks. Other than that it was good. It was quite loud due to another table of 10 but thats not the restaurants fault, I'm only mentioning it in case someones looking for a quiet dining experience

    The food was great, as always. Servers and staff are very nice. We did experience long wait times due to an event, which I understand, but maybe more kitchen and bar staff could be considered when the restaurant is so busy? We’ll be back for sure, this is one of our favourite spots with a great patio.

    Hi JM-Your reso was during the extremely popular pre-Shania Twain show in the city that you were also attending. Regardless of how quick your order might be, there were many orders ahead of you. I personally checked in with you all a few times & apologized for the wait-you were able to dine and drink and make it to the show with time to spare! I hope you reconsider your review as your experience was 100% due to the biggest show in Hamilton-additional wait time should be expected everywhere.

    Great food. I’ve been here before and have had a positive experience, and it was a busy night, however we waited 45 minutes for our drinks, which then 2/5 came incorrectly. We then had to wait another 15 minutes for those 2 drinks to be corrected and told it was because the bar was backed up, which I totally understand, however, fixing drinks should be moved to the top of the line so people aren’t left an hour before getting drinks (the fixed drinks were a can of beer and a cranberry soda so it wasn’t as if it was a cocktail that takes time). We also asked for a second jug of water which never came. I think the server must have been very new because when we asked what was going on he just seemed panicked and didn’t know what to say which it made it awkward - it was a busy night so I’m happy to wait an hour+ for food, but the drinks was a bit much. It was also so loud from the music that I don’t think the server could hear properly which likely contributed to the drink mix up, however, if that’s the case, they should confirm the order before putting it in. Overall, I wouldn’t say don’t go, but, I will be avoiding the George street location on busy nights in the future. The food is consistently good and I think a reasonable wait time for a busy night.

    Hi MelS- Your reso was during the extremely popular pre-Shania Twain show in the city that you were also attending. During a big pre-show everyone is in a rush & want multiple items quickly so they can dine, drink and eat before the show. The drinks that came back literally went back to you in under 2 minutes-I personally corrected them for you so I'm 100% sure of this. That night was not indicative of the normal dining experience at either of our locations. I hope you reconsider your review.
