Food and ambiance was fantastic.
Very noisy upstairs though so in future I would request a table on the main level.

Got the Sunday special carvery board for 2. It had a great selection of local meats and sides and for only $45 was enough for at least 4 people! Needless to say we had a great time. Our server Nat was lovely and helpful with any questions we had. Looking forward to our next visit.

Was disappointed with food. It was my son’s birthday he ordered prime rib. The waiter said the meat couldn’t be rare but would be medium rare. It wasn’t it was cooked through medium.
The presentation was unimpressive. We have eaten there several times before, but this was the last.

Overall disappointing, had a reservation for 7:15, it was my wife and I's anniversary and this was noted in the reservation. We had our orders taken at immediately as we were pressed for time which too was made clear. We had another commitment for 9:15 so we needed to be out by 8:45. Surely we thought this would be enough time to eat. We were told the kitchen was a little slow and were at 30-45 minute wait for entree's which still would have left us enough time to enjoy our meal provided it was not any longer than that. Again this was made clear, we were understanding as we did not leave ample time but again surely should have been enough. By 8:30 we had not received our entree's and were told they would bump us up the queue and our meal would be out in ten minutes. However at this point i was not about to pay good money to literally have to inhale my meal and leave. We were forced to pull the plug and leave without eating and this was made out to be a large inconvenience to them ...... ?
No apology, compensation, nor offer of anything to entice our return, this was very disappointing to say the least.
I have however have heard good things and would hope this is not a regular thing but for a small concentrated menu and not being overly packed I would have expected far better turn around and customer service in the end.

It was OK. Sort of a cross between a steakhouse and a pub, I personally found the atmosphere a little oddball (higher end prices...with a pool hall in the back room...washrooms quite "pub" or "student" like).

Decent food, but a touch overpriced IMHO.

Five of us went out for our friend's bachelor party dinner at the Grizzly Grill and had a great time. The appetizer Caesar salad was great, had a good selection of beer and had a great round of entrees. The staff were very friendly, helpful and welcoming. All around, had a great experience and the groom to be loved it.

The restaurant was busy, but not busy enough to warrant the poor level of service we received. We ordered drinks shortly after arrived, which were served to us relatively quickly and we weren't offered another drink for over an hour. A friend arrived a few minutes late and ordered a bottled beer when she sat down and over an hour later had still not received it. She asked another server and the hostess in the meantime, but still waited at least an hour until she was served. It was ridiculous.

Food was wonderful, tasted great. Good use of ingredients and flavor. Only complaint would be the portion sizes aren’t great for the price value for what we ordered anyways. Other than that it was a lovely place.

Greeted warmly on entry. They have a good selection of wine by the glass. They served wonderful warm bread & butter. We chose to share a drizzly salad to start was delicious and large portion. We then each chose lake Erie pickerel something hard to get in Toronto. The pickerel was cooked to perfection & was balanced with the sides we both finished it all. We were not sure about dessert but chose lemon meringue car perfect with decaf coffee.

This is my favorite restaurant! Not only do they serve Canadian dishes such as Pickerel, the service is outstanding. My sons ordered fish and it took a while to prepare. They apologized and paid for our first round of drinks, without us complaining. Very well managed!

We enjoyed our food and the service was great. Our only issue was the noise level. I had spoken with our hotel for a recommendation for a quiet restaurant mid-priced. The Grizzly Grill had great decor but it was all hard furniture and flooring and nothing to absorb the sound. One of our friends has hearing issues and he found it had to hear our conversation over the noise of the restaurant.

The Food was amazing!! Sooo good!! and our server was over all okay. My only main complaint is that there was pepper or dirt floating around in my glass and when I asked her to bring me a new glass, she came back with a glass that was dirtier than the glass before with even more black specks floating in the water. I felt like I shouldn’t have to tell her it was dirty again, and felt like she didn’t care about the quality of service she was presenting. Which made me nervous that maybe my plate wasn’t cleaned well, or that I’d find something I shouldn’t in my meal. I was going to order wine, but I didn’t want to order another drink because If both water glasses were dirty. Would a wine a glass be? If I asked for another water would the third glass be dirty and filled with black specks too? I don’t know if maybe the ice bin was contaminated or the water pitcher wasn’t cleaned well. But As a server, attention to detail is so important. Every time I serve my customers I Always make sure to check every glass, every drink and plate before presenting it to a table. And it was sad to see that same care of service not provided.

I am easy going and normally not one to complain but my experience was very disappointing. The service was very poor as the buffet was lacking many items ( lettuce, potatoes, eggs, prime rib, horsraddish, ketchup to list a few) and the wait was long causing food to be cold. There was also a lack of utensils, soup bowls, desert bowls and condiments and again the wait was extremely long. The waiter apologized and offered free drinks (which took about 15 minutes to be served) This was a nice gesture but does not make up for such poor service and while trying to enjoy Mother’s Day. I will never recommend or chose this restaurant again. This was not a nice experience.

Mother’s Day brunch.
They had a buffet brunch. And they kept running out of food. Twice I went up to get different things and they were out. Server was good. Oh and they ran out of clean plates too for a bit. Overall it was ok.

We had brunch on Mother's day. The food was good but we ate from the upper buffet table. fewer choices. plates were dirty. I asked for new ones. They were dirty too so I went down stairs and found the plates were dirty yet again. 4th stack of plates finally was clean. Someone was not doing their job. I've usually been very happy with both the food and the service at "the Grill". This experience tainted what should have been a celebration for Mother's day.
