Our waiter was a bit grumpy but we were there late afternoon so maybe it had been a long shift. They were out of ice cream so couldn’t try the milkshake unfortunately. Overall not worth the hassle of a drive and park downtown.
Always an excellent service and amazing food. I love this place
First and last time zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz….. 40 minutes waiting for my food. My wife’s plate was cold
Cool vibes and great food.
The food was absolutely delicious and the server, Ginger, was a delight.
Great ambience and great food! Got busy really early, definitely need to book in advance.
the food was really good and the staff was nice. i got the eggs benedict with smoked salmon and my partner got the blue berry waffles. they thought the waffles needed extra sauce but other than that it was very tasty. the server forgot a couple things but once we brought it up he got it right away. i can’t wait to come again
Great food with great customer service! The whole environment was friendly and picture worthy as well! I would definitely come back again for more :)
The service was extremely slow and pretty much non-existent. We had to wait almost an hr to receive our food and never got checked on throughout our meal. The egg Benedict was bland and a waste of money which was very disappointing as I waited so long for it. My friend however, got chicken and waffles and that tasted much better. The waffles had a hint of sweetness which was nice. Overall I’m not sure if I’d come back again.
Visited Old School today in order to celebrate my mother’s birthday. I must say I’m extremely disappointed. The service was rather slow, our table and surrounding areas were dirty (food on the ground, used napkins under our table.) The waitress who assisted the male waiter with bringing our food out was incredibly rude when I asked her if I can get some syrup and cutlery lots of attitude and very condescending. The food was COLD, and the fried chicken had absolutely no flavour. Overall, the service and experience was disappointing.
This place was a little overrated. I was expecting more seasoning in the food.
Our server Jeffery was outstanding… very atttentive..was on the ball with everything.. he made us wonderful drinks .. our bill was 100$ and we had to give him a 40$ tip Bec he was that amazing . We live down the street and this will be our new brunch spot 100 percent .. food was outstanding it was hot and it was fast .. amazing
We ordered the quesadilla Big Mac and got a regular Big Mac but it was still delicious so no problems there. The service was great... fast and friendly. The pecan brownie... just don’t do it. Not good at all
Here's the tea., let's start with the good ...the chicken and waffles are on point , the portion is large enough to share . The Poutine was not a hit the fries were rubbery the gravey was chunky. The beer was not cold . The atmosphere is energetic and our server was pleasant and organized.
Great patio. Really good burger. Although we sat outside, the tables indoor are nicely spaced and have plexiglass between them. Big windows that are open too so it would quite comfortable to dine indoors.
Host on the phone was rude. Waiter had a poor crummy attitude. We had to ask for the waiter to take our order after 20 minutes of waiting at 345 (not busy at all!) food was ok, but spending money at a restaurant during covid should be enjoyable. Never going back, tried this place twice.
Great spot loved the mac and cheese and burger
Easy brunch option with a great patio, tasty food and friendly service.
Any restaurant working during COVID deserves 5 stars. Old school is great. You want good brunch, they serve great brunch. Lots of options, food was hot, server was attentive, finished in a timely fashion. What more could you want?
Sunday menu is very limited. Just finger food and no choice
We had a great experience! The food was good and the vibe was amazing. Would definitely come again
The pancakes were amazing!
The pancakes were unreal 😍
The wait to get our food served was approximately 40 mins. It definitely was busy when we went. I just wish they gave our nachos first.
Great service and great food. Portions and big and very tasty. Staff is very friendly especially John.
We had a great time! The patio is excellent and the service was good! Food was fine - not spectacular, but we still enjoyed!
Went for lunch. I think it’s a better breakfast place. Our platter was average.
Great find! Attentive staff and the restaurant follows all protocols. Felt very safe!
Chicken was dry and overcooked.
I tried the Blueberry pancakes and soo tasty! Definitely would come back!
Service was slow but it was because they were short staffed. Our waitress was great nonetheless!
had such a nice and funny waitress who served me and my two friends, chatting with her made our brunch more enjoyable! food was great as well - love the Mac and Cheese!
Food was great
Loved the atmosphere and amazing staff! I had the French toast which was amazing and my friend had Mac and cheese which he said was really good too!
Amazing as always!!
Food was quite greas and bland. I expected better from this popular place.
Very good food just could have been a bit warmer. Foods taste was over all amazing I would definitely go back!!
