Had a wonderful evening. Food and drinks were great. Live entertainment was terrific. Staff were extremely attentive and friendly.
Only one server?!! Poor waitress was overworked and our food took a long time to arrive. She couldn't possibly be as attentive as I'm sure she would have liked.
Great, electric eatery with an upscale pubby menu and live music on Saturday night! We sat at the bar and loved the ambiance!!
Food was fantastic, wine was great and the singer was awesome. Really enjoyed our server too!
Felt rushed out but great food and the servers were also great.
Yet another enjoyable time at The Rich Uncle. Quickly becoming one of my favourite locations to go for drinks and a meal with friends. Stellar service, great cocktail menu and exceptional food! Doesn’t get much better in the KW area!
While we’d heard great things about Rich Uncle, we still expected pub fare. We were pleasantly surprised. Supporting local through the pandemic, it was our regular Friday night date night out and our first time here.
The bar menu was surprisingly limited but we found some items that fit the bill. We settled on Caesar salad and duck wings for apps. The Caesar dressing was house made and delicious but a little light. We always prefer a light hand with dressing but a little bit more would have been nice. The homemade sourdough croutons, porcetta chunks and shaved Parmesan were delightful. The star of the night was the duck wings. Omg, these were so delicious and beautifully flavoured. Nine generous wings were very meaty and the additional sauce smears around the inside of the bowl added another flavour layer on these already deliciously mild heat wings. Can’t wait to have these again! Dinner was braised lamb shank with a mashed potato cabbage mixture that, despite what you may think, was delicious. We also had truffle mushroom pasta that had a wonderful crunchy topping, a little salty but not overly empowering. The pasta may have been house made and Emma’s perfectly cooked. Tons of garlic and cheese rounded out a beautiful and very filling pasta. It was the only thing we didn’t finish. Had there been enough left, we definitely would have taken it home. The waiter was fabulous and it was busy so there was some wait time getting drinks and the bill. There was no rush to open the table for next guests, which was nice to see. We had expected to have only an hour 45 for our meal but we were there longer and not being rushed out. The live music was a little loud and the window seat was cold. Otherwise the grades would have been higher. This restaurant recently had a fire that closed them for an additional two months, so times have been exceptionally difficult for them. The decor gives no air of having recently been through such a disaster. We can’t wait to go back!
Our meals were VERY SALTY. Salty like table salt not kosher salt. So salty that our tongues were brunt. With the band playing and the server in a mask, it was next to impossible to hear her. Her service was great though and that was really awesome! The drinks were tasty! We will come back again and hope that our meals aren’t so salty.
Had a lovely time, awesome service, good food and cocktails.
Good food, good live music, great atmosphere! Place was packed and life felt normal again!
We came for the burgers and Very disappointed that we were not informed before we arrived that you were not offering any of the hand held part of the menu.
Another great foodie experience at The Rich Uncle. They never disappoint!
Great time, great food. Will come again. First time.
Great evening as always. They took good care of us. They accommodated us by letting us sit out on the patio even though it was cold. The drinks were fantastic and staff were amazing. I am glad the rich uncle is open again
Food and service were great. There was a live performer the night we went who was so loud, he drowned out our conversation. We ate and left, not the atmosphere we were expecting.
Sat, Oct 16
Excellent food. However we were advised that we could only stay for 90 minutes. Even when we asked for a bar spot after dinner so we could have drinks, we were not accommodated. The Manager did not seem to have any alternative to keep us on property as per our request.
Very disappointed. Especially given a first Anniversary night out.
So happy this amazing restaurant is back open! The Chef has created a delicious variety of dishes for every person’s taste. Bar choice of specialty drinks is vast and A1. The servers are very attentive and make you feel almost at home! Our party tried a variety of apps, duck wings, dip as elk as the donuts. Incredible! Out entrees varied from fish amd chips, mushroom pasta, confit duck as well as the salad with the addition of fresh perch. Not that we had room, but could not leave before trying the creme brûlée! You will not be disappointed!
Great food and service. Burgers are so delicious!
Attended during the Blues Festival and really enjoyed the 7 pm Saturday show. All 3 of us were very happy with our meals and cocktails, ordering duck wings, a burger and fish and chips. Great looking space and ambience.
I can’t believe how many people I told about the Brussels spouts. I mean c’mon brusselsprouts , they were amazing as was the rest of our meal. I requested the table for patio but wanted to hear the music so asked if possible where the music was, and WOW, did they ever. We were right in front of the band and we LOVED it. Highly recommended. Great staff excellent food incredible service, amazing music wonderful memories .
Reserved to see a fave local musician. In the course of events, discovered The Rich Uncle is a nice choice for an evening out. I like a small menu that does a good job with quality ingredients and eat out rarely because usually the food is disappointing. Not disappointed here! We were treated excellently by all the staff.
The server was excellent! Our food was great!
We had a great time here! The food was great, the service was great and the singer was awesome.
I ordered their special menu for the food made with local ingredients, oh my, that was incredible. We ordered the pork belly appetizer which was so yummy, and the trout also delightful! The live music made the whole experience complete, first time after covid. I’ll definitely go back!
We were very impressed with the Rich Uncle. The food was awesome. The service was fantastic and we really enjoyed the live music. Would definitely eat here again!
The food was very tasty, could have been hotter. The service was awesome! Great atmosphere. Will definitely go back!
Great service, very personable-even though it was very busy.
We were lucky enough to get a reservation for inside dining the first night of Stage 3 and we are so glad we did. We have missed the Rich Uncle since it closed and are so pleased to see everyone back at it. The food was amazing and the service great. Everything was fantastic and we are looking forward to many more nights at our favorite Tavern.
Love the Rich Uncle Tavern!
One suggestion is patio heaters.
Very cold when we’re eating, but does not reflect on the restaurant.
So happy you are open again!!!
What an excellent experience at The Rich Uncle with my friends. All staff were extremely friendly and helpful with our drink and menu options. We started with some refreshing drinks from the bar and followed with the Dubliner & Jalapeño Doughnuts, what a delicious savoury appetizer! Our entrees were Duck Confit and Steak & Mushroom Pie. What a fantastic meal! I will be back soon!
Excellent food & service.
Overall excellent! Food was incredible, and a fair price. My first time going, but will absolutely be making another trip.
The patio is next to a fairly busy street, so you can definitely hear the traffic. But overall excellent experience.
Love the new patio! This place is just as good as always with a menu that’s hard to pick from. We got the jalapeño bagels, fish and chips, and TRU burger. We recommend all three! Being on the sidewalk, be prepared for vehicles close by and loud cars/motorcycles.
The fresh food, service and ambiance is impeccable... live solo guitar for a birthday dinner... highly recommended ... good portions, great people... and the decor is very memorable! 5*
I went tonight for the first time since they reopened post covid shut down and I can’t even tell you how great of an experience it was. The staff were all incredible and working so hard to keep things safe while still normal. The food was amazing and clearly made with such thought and care. My favourite place to eat locally. Oh and it also has the best decor and atmosphere just to top it off! This place deserves your business and won’t disappoint.
The host/owner pays attention to her own family only. There is only 1 server who isn’t very attentive. The host doesn’t help the server at all. It’s gross. I feel bad cause the food was amazing, compliments to the chef!!! I told my parents about our terrible service and they said that they came to this restaurant before covid and had the same experience. Terrible service, over priced food. Not very friendly unless you’re a friend or family member to the host. Wouldn’t recommend. (Unless they got new management and staff it could be better).
Great, high quality food. Decent amount of options for vegetarians. 20/10 service.
Great food and service! Proper distancing between tables. The live music was fantastic. Absolutely perfect date night. Thanks Rich Uncle. We’ll be back soon!
Really enjoyed our experience. This was our first indoor dining experience since the pandemic started and everything was great. The staff made us feel very comfortable and our waiter was very high energy and entertaining.
Such a great night out! Food was stellar and the service was outstanding, never rushed and actually entertaining. Live music was awesome too, this place is our new fave!
