Gastro Pub
First came the pub, cheap drinks and cheaper food, then came the gastropub, an import from Britain featuring upmarket pub grub in a ale-drinking setting. Now, welcome The Waverley, which further blurs the lines between restaurant, social house and bar. The Waverley is the culmination of where the industry is heading; amazing food, unreal cocktails, cool vibes, laidback staff that know their products and what they are doing, refined tastes at affordable prices and zero smugness and attitude. Just a place to chill, drink, eat and hangout while listening to the dopest music you never heard.

For our love of food, art, music & libations.

    Server wasn’t good, our bill was charged more than what was ordered and when we went to discuss the bill, we were challenged and nothing was resolved. After dinner, it becomes full of very drunk university students and the atmosphere becomes a huge turn off.

    Huge disappointment. Second rate ingredients. Miss match between menu and serving (I.e. tacos with rice and coleslaw became tacos with fries). Burgers were over cooked and over salted. Dinner for 3 (no alcohol) came to 170. Terrible, terrible value.

    Our waiter came to our table a total of 4 times throughout our entire visit. He did not get the waters that we requested as soon as we sat down until we had asked two times for them (40min delay to get waters). We were served food that we waited close to an hour for (6 tacos and some fries) and then it was cold… Our waiter did not come to see how the food was and we had to ask another waiter so we could get our bill. It would have been one thing if the restaurant was crazy busy and we saw him running around, we would understand but we did not even see him out on the floor very often. We were very excited going in and very disappointed leaving. I do believe the restaurant has potential and maybe our waiter was having a bad day? Unfortunately though it made for a very unenjoyable time.

    The Waverley - ElginResponded on July 26, 2022We're sorry that your experience wasn't perfect! We will address the issues you mentioned with the management team to ensure this does not happen again. It shouldn't matter; if it was a bad day, the service should have been better. I have sent you a private message with my contact information! Have a great day Roland

    I had high hopes given other reviews but was disappointed. I ordered a mojito and it tasted terrible (too much syrup, not enough mint) and when I sent it back and asked for a vodka soda instead, I’m almost certain the mojito was partially poured into the new glass with a bit of club soda added. I was not pleased. The food was ok - squid was good but the pasta dishes were standard, nothing special. Overall we were unimpressed and will not return.

    Overall, I had a blast at this place. Our server was so accommodating and made sure we got what we needed and brought his charm to all my friends. The food was good. The vibe was great. The only thing is, I preferred better music. I’m not a big fan of techno remixes but to each their own. If they ever have old school or hip hop nights, it would be great to announce what DJ is coming.

    Was able to accommodate a large group - much appreciated. Great setup with booths and chairs that made it easy to talk to friends. Service by two servers were at different levels. Food came out much quicker for one server even though orders were taken at relatively the same time… not the biggest deal BUT. When food did come out, different plates were used from one server to the next and portions varied greatly from one server to the next. This was our pain point of the evening - it felt like some people got a kids meal whereas others got proper portions for the price. We mentioned this and they said it was the same, but those that got their food 5-10 minutes after finished their meals before the other table (and they had food to spare). Besides that, overall great experience.

    Tuna crudo was delicious, the rest was meh. Fish and chips was the worst I've ever had. Restaurant is cold and eggy small that hits you in the face when you walk through the doors.

    Great service and the red pepper hummus was delicious but too many potatoes on my pineapple chicken dish. We were sitting by the speaker which was a little too loud making it difficult to have a conversation without yelling. The servers were fun and outgoing!

    The chicken was dry, best to stick with the pub food basics: fish & chips, or burgers. In the winter it's quite cold when seated next to those old windows.

    We had the best server who treated us to shot on the house for NYE! Would come back again for NYE...they provided us with NYE hats and it was a great vibe despite COVID restrictions!
