The Match Eatery is a great venue with a relaxing atmosphere. I went for breakfast with a friend I haven’t seen in ages and the server gave us space to chat and good service. The food was good - seemed a little expensive for breakfast and coffee, with a tip it was nearly $17 for one person.

Les ailes de poulet étaient très sec ... c’est à dire repasser moins deux ou trois fois! La serveuse a vidé une demie bouteille de vin dans une seule coupe... et mon steak avait beaucoup de neuf....

À mon avis, c’est un des pire endroit à manger à Sarnia...

This is a really nice restaurant. I like that the food is amazing, the wait staff was great and the naise levels aren't too high that you can talk to people around you. The prices are resonable and like I said the food is fabulous. I have eaten there several times before and it has been good everytime, food and service.
I would have given this a five star except that I had made reservations and when we were led to our seat it was a booth in the middle of the resaurant which would be like sitting next to the kitchen. I did complain and we were given a much better seat. So it was all good.

It was my birthday and it will be my last time there! Wrong wine, over 1 hour wait for meal with only 3 out of 4 came out. With the other meal coming 10 minutes later. Plus, one meal was soggy and cold. This was my 2 nd chance for this place it failed the Thursday before with club house pizza serve with cold brown chicken meat! Who serves brown meat on pizza! Plus promised birthday cake never ever came out

Asked to have our seating arrangements changed. We were ignored. No response from the woman who took us to our original seats. Truly disrespectful and rude on her part. Had to move up the hierarchy to this done. No great desire to go back.

Was there because we were given a two for one entree coupon. Service was great, but food was so so. Fish was from battered frozen! Right in the river should have fresh fish!! Wings were small, Caesar salad was a joke! Deconstructed! It was so bad! Sorry we were hoping for a better meal!!

Great location. Great vegetables. Awful steaks and shrimp. Baseball steak tough and overdone. Turf and surf had small overcooked shrimps and steak was supposed to be medium rare but was gray on the outside and barely pink on the inside. Tasted like a pre tenderized piece of beef. So disappointed that this terrific location has been ruined by wall to wall televisions and mediocre food when both dishes we ordered we over $25 each. Definitely not worth it.

I’ve now taken two girls on dates to your restaurant and both times is been a flop!!!
Overpriced for what you get and I’ve been less then impressed with the quality and quantity. Service and atmosphere is the only thing you have going on at this time.

3 of our 4 meals were ok. Our pizza choice was not good at all. Very sloppy messy pizza. I don’t think we would return.
Service was very slow. I was only half done my salad when my entree arrived to my table. The salad had taken forever to arrive and I should have just cancelled it. I had to ask to order drinks after sitting for a while when we arrived whereas most places that is the first thing the waitress will ask. We found the meal choices very limited as well.
I love the location of the restaurant overlooking the water.however I feel they need to hire more staff to keep things moving smoother and faster.

This was my 2nd visit to this restaurant and it was nothing at all like the first one which was great in all respects.

To start, the server hovered at our table as we read the drinks menu. We felt rushed. After giving our food order, we waited about 40 minutes before we received our meal. It seemed like other tables (who were seated after us) got their food ahead of us. The food was good when it finally arrived.

Service is slow with a snappy attitude. Took over 25 minutes to just get our drink order taken it was 35 minutes before we had our drinks at the table. water and coffee refills were impossible to get. A second beer was never offered. The food is different every time. The sauces always change. The fries are served in a metal container that make them soggy instead of crispy. The nachos have no toppings not even an ounce of cheese on an entire plate of nachos and less than an ounce of tomatoes, onions , and black olives I wish I would have taken a picture. The food is never the same twice. Wish other was consistent. The location on the river is beautiful.

This was our third time coming for dinner and I was extremely upset with the food this time. The truck tacos were wayyyyy to spicy (which it doesn’t state that on the menu) and the French onion soup tasted like it was watered down. I must say the live music and the service was on point tho!

We were looking forward to turkey dinner as advertised for US thanksgiving. We were there for Cdn thanksgiving and enjoyed the turkey dinner. It was not at all the same the second time. The turkey was not a roast turkey! It was a commercial processed type of turkey breast - salty. The stuffing was surprisingly spicy. Pumpkin pie was tasty but unless I'm eating ice cream or creme brûlée, I would appreciate a fork rather then a spoon to eat my dessert.

We have had several visits. with no improvement. Staff are slow to greet you at table, slow to get you drinks, even slower to take order. appts. were served with the meal. Plates were hot, but the food was cold, how is that possible? Staff do not come back until food is almost gone before asking how it is. Refills on drinks had to be requested twice before we got them. Had to ask for take out containers twice, food plates were not cleared until after the dessert came.
These are all standard food service does that were not done. Kitchen is slow too.
Also, my children wanted chocolate milk. There was none. However they offered white. Then our dessert was served with chocolate sauce. What it the difference? Chocolate sauce and white milk is chocolate milk. Really!?

I enjoyed my meal and so did my two guests. The food was tasty, hot and we did not feel rushed to leave. On your feedback menu you had a graham crust with key lime topping, with whip cream and seasonal berries in a jar. I never eat dessert when I go out but I made an exception to this rule the other night. It was light, very tasty and I hope you add it to your permanent menu. I am tempted to have it again.

Your weekend brunch menu has never been a disappointment. Also the member breakfast on Thursdays are always great. Unfortunately, lunch and dinner has never been a good experience for us. Your menu doesn't carry some popular items and you falsely advertise Caesar salad. It tastes nothing like a normal Caesar salad. I'm also unable to have a regular green salad with a choice of dressings. Unfortunately I would not be recommending anyone eat there other than the weekend brunch.

Waitress brought out wrong appetizer. The correct appetizer arrived with the meal. The wrong appetizer was sent back to the kitchen and was served a while later as it was ordered as the main course not an app. One the meals was spaghetti and meatballs and it was burnt. Waitress made sure our drinks were never empty.

Horribly Run Restaurant. Terrible service. Mediocre food at best. 2/4 chicken meals had to be returned they were so dried out. 1/4 cocktails had to be returned because they were horrible.
Don’t waste your money. There’s plenty of other restaurants in the area to go and enjoy.

The view is beautiful especially at sunset. The service was good and friendly
The food was tasty and had a good choice of wines. The atmosphere was a bit loud but fun. The prices were slightly pricey for portions.
The outside patio would be a great spot on a nice evening but it was a little chilly when we went.

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

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...
