Match Eatery and Public House - Point Edward
all was well done. Food was great, service was great and table was in a good spot also. Server was very attentive and polite.
Warmly greeted, hostess paid us priority attention due to making reservations. I really appreciate that attention. The waitress, Olivia, was AWESOME!!! Very attentive,’friendly, accommodating, offering great advice!! She is a keeper!!!
Will definitely be back!!
I was on the patio Wednesday October 10 and it was just as amazing. Sarnia really needs this place!!
Charged extra For mayonnaise on the side
Disappointed - checked menu online for breakfast and made reservation for thanksgiving Monday. Table wasn’t ready when we arrived on time and had to ask for menus - then told they only have 2 breakfast specials and no menu - website did not indicate this at all or I would not have made reservation - very disappointing experience as we drove 45 min to get there and another couple drove over an hour - only had coffee and left
went for thanksgiving dinner two 3inch slices of turkey not enough slice of stuffing never seen stuffing sliced before not your usual turkey dinner who would use frozen mixed veg however the mashed pot and turkey and gravy were very tasty service was good it was quiet everyone was fairly pleased table of four
Great thanksgiving special. Turkey, stuffing mashed potates and pumpkin pie. A real traditional thanksgiving dinner.
I give it a 2 outta 5... the staff was A+#1 very cheerful and helpful.... the 2 star loss was the food...:
portions where on the edge of adequate, turkey was nuked and downright dry n chewy, inedible in some spots... instant stuffing was almost misplaced as a thin layer under the leather turkey straps.. the vegetables and pie where delicious ;)
spent a few bucks on the slots, lost interest and cashed out.. ;)
We had a fabulous time, the atmosphere is fantastic. Best Riverside Bar in Sarnia, the view is to die for. I know service has been an issue in the past and is being worked on. Can definitely see Improvement. Was also there for Sunday brunch September 30th. And our waitress in the Horseshoe Booth was absolutely fantastic...
Can't wait to try again...
3rd time eating there and they still can't prioritize things properly. People that sat down after us were almost done their meal before we received ours. Kitchen backed up because of the patio seating was the excuse given to us for the long wait.
Love the atmostphere, but the waiting time for your meal is not good. Usually you can count on about 1 hour from time of ordering your meal to the time you receive it. Food tastes good and meal salads are very good.
I love what Gateway Casinos has created with this Casino. I never visited the former restaurant, b/c I didn't like walking through the old casino. Now, it's bright, vibrant, fun and the type of restaurant / bar that you'd find in a bigger city. The atmosphere is stellar - love how they've taken advantage of the St. Clair River and the Blue Water Bridges. It's brilliant! I've been recommending it to family and friends for the past few months. Kudos to you all!
I’m sure when the dust settles it could a great place for casual dining.
The chicken and waffles meal was quite good. The thin crust pizza did not have a thin crust. The thick crust meatzza pizza was only OK.
The ambiance and view were good. The service was on the slow side,
Overall, the event was passable, not memorable.
We wanted a water view and this restaurant did not disappoint! We had a great meal, attentive service and watched every type of boat imaginable go by while we ate. It was exactly what we had hoped it would be.
Very poor service. Not alot to choose from. Half the food was cold.
Hamburger and fish and chips took 35 minutes to arrive. Hot food was ice cold, and salads were warm and wilted. This was our third time dining there, and the first time we were thoroughly disappointed.
Stef was a lovely friendly waitress but extremely slow considering it was not very busy
I had a lovely meal with my elderly mom and we spent time in the restaurant, the casino and on the patio. I do want to say however that there was an elderly lady dining beside us who was all alone. She ordered her food around the same time that we did and we had completely finished our meal before she got hers ( a simple pasta dish) No one came to check on her or apologize for the delay. The staff are run off their feet ( every time I’ve been there) clearly the restaurant is understaffed and that is a consistent complaint I have heard from several people.
I love the Cheesy Brew soup and the Sticky Toffee desert. At this point these are my 2 favourite items on the menu. The menu needs a bit more selection.
I have been there about 6 times since it had opened and I can remember 3 times they had run out of the Cheesy Brew and once out of the Sticky Toffee.
Although I indicated that I would not recommend this restaurant to a friend, I would recommend the patio for a drink and soup and / or soup. Beautiful Patio and scenery.
We had dinner outside, early evening. The meal was fine until the sun was going down. As the sun dropped below the awning the temperature became to hot to sit and enjoy. This rushed us out of there. Something to remember.
Would like it if salt and pepper was on the tables. And crispier bacon when asked for would also be nice!
Terrible service. Horrible food. Had chicken wings and it was like eating jerky off the bone. Wouldn't go back
Three of us went for my mom's birthday. She enjoyed her meal, a salmon burger. I had the salmon bowl and it was very bland. No seasoning on the rice and veggies, salmon was very well done. I told my server and asked for some soy sauce to give it some flavour, which she brought, but I did have to remind her. There was no offer to fix my meal. Server was pleasant, however, and busy. I would go back, just wouldn't order the same thing. The outdoor area is very nice.
The service was great, but the flies were bothersome. The food selection was not abundant, but the prices were average for the area. We had a coupon for bogo free which was the kicker for great value. Overall, it was a good experience.
Your 2 for 1 entree coupon is misleading. The server discounted the appetizers and not the entree's. we discussed this with her but she said the coupon was wrong.
Waited over 45 minutes for server. My wife never did get her water with no ice. Waited almost another 30 minutes for food. Steak was way undercooked and like rubber. The vegetables with my wife's salmon were raw. Not happy at all and definately not worth almost $50. Never again.
Match has only been open for a few weeks and hopefully will work out the kinks. It took too long to receive our food- more than 50 minutes. The staff were very friendly but there seemed to be lots of confusion with seating people. We will try it out again after some time and see if these issues are corrected.
Although the quality of food and our server were very good, we probably won't return for a few months, hoping the Match Eatery hires additional staff. Fortunately, we had reservations but several customers had to wait for up to an hour and 45 mins even though there were empty tables. Last month, we ate on their outdoor patio which is very well designed and furnished, and includes a gorgeous view of the river.
Long wait even though we had reservations. Very rude hostess.
The meal was AWESOME. but the flies weren't. The waitress didn't ask us if we wanted a drink. So another waitress brought our food, (very quickly, I might add) and we asked for a ice tea. It took about 10 min. for it to arrive & we were almost finished our meal. The view over the river was peaceful & great to watch the boats.
We had the salmon burgers. Taste was good. The salmon pieces were too small for the bun. So 1/3 of the bun was left behind. The fries had black spots on them and we could only eat half of them. It took 1 hour to get our food. Restaurant was not busy.
The lineup to redeem your 2 for 1 coupon was unacceptable. Only 2 on the desk and stood in line longer than it took to sit down, order and eat our meal. Would not go back. Other friends warned us but we didn’t heed their warning to our detriment. Standing in line for that long spoiled the dining experience . Unfortunately not enough people ( servers, desk people) to handle the customers. The word is out. - just heard 6 cooks left. Need to get your act together!
Breakfast was excellent but restaurant could be opened a little earlier than 10:00 o'clock!!
Our server Emanuel, deserves a kudo for handling his section (a total of about 17 people) in an orderly, timely and professional manner.
The food could be improved upon.
Certain dishes are truly tasteless; maybe they forgot the sauce or whatever else was needed to make it 'oriental'.
The ambiance is good, enjoyed the layout, the view and most importantly the atmosphere - inviting and pleasant.
Cocktails/drinks were satisfactory with a good enough variety.
We did not have an out of ordinary wait time to receive our apetizer and the main course. all within acceptable limits.
Overall I will recommend this establishment - especially as it matures in time and gets the 'kinks' out of the way.
Just came back from supper our reservation was for 3:45 we had a drink and our supper - fish &chips and a salmon burger. Very tasty, we were home by 5 o’clock. The service was great the food was good no complaints here . Great watching the boats go by.
The worst service ever! Our second time there. Had terrible service 2 weeks ago but were willing to try again. More experienced wait staff and bartenders needed that know what is offered on the menu.
I know its new, but waiting 30 min for our waitress for the first time isnt good. 30 min after that for app, 40 min after that for dinner. Food was sub-par at best. Salmon was dry and tasteless, and for $21. The Ruben was very thick cut meat,full of fat, and bread was burnt on all edges but was afraid to ask for another since we already returned the wine due to a bug floating in it upon delivery, and in case it took another 45 min to get the sandwich fixed.
WONT BE COMING BACK. Thanks for the memorable 13th Ann.
Table wais not ready (to be cleaned up when we arrived even we had a reservation,! it also seemed at the time the restaurant wasn't busy as only a few tables were occupied). As to the chicken and ribs we ordered, the chicken was quite a bit "burned" and covered with a lot carcinogen carbon! when we mentioned this to the server the response was that it is like that because it is blackened cajun style! but we had been in Houston and Louisianna before and had similar style cooking and it was entirely different. However the server did come back with a discount voucher for the next visit! the key point to learn is no matter what you give customer as a token of apology, fundamentally the food prepared has to satisfy customer needs and true to the definition as advertized on the menu!
First impression was great, reserved a table earlier in the week and they were able to accommodate a table on the patio which was amazing as we were bringing friends from out of town and wanted to show off the patio/waterfront. Server was quick and friendly she was great to us, would enjoy having her again. Food was fantastic, I had the salmon sandwich (from the seasonal menu) and my husband had the strip-loin and both were excellent, only thing I would say is the wings that our friends ordered did not look that great and were very small but based on our meals we would absolutely go here again just avoid the wings :) Beer selection was good but a tad pricey for a 16oz Bud or Bud light, we took advantage of the Stella that was on special and thought that was a good deal. Patio is incredible! Will definitely be back very soon.
