Got a chance to get back here a couple of times when back in Hamilton for the holiday season. Still some of the same staff which is amazing - hi Lori (sp?) and my peameal bacon and cheese sandwich on toast is still a go to!

Rankins used to have the best hot turkey sandwich...ever. not any more. Three of us were served stringy, hard turkey on stale bread with a smear of congealed gravy on top. I rarely send food back but had no choice this time. The waitress...worse ever! I was shocked at her terrible attitude. She huffed and rolled her eyes when we... More

The place is cozy, food is good, prices are good and the service is good. What more do you want from a neighbourhood bar and grill. Plenty of regulars here. Lori is a fabulous server(daytime). Go in once for breakfast and she knows what you want the next time you see her!

Noticed most were likely regulars. A lady came over took out drink orders. Then took our dinner orders , then ignored us... More

Great as usual here for breakfast! Also you can get a rewards card so after 9 your 10th is free! Staff are all very friendly and the food comes fast. Definitely a place you can come to watch a game or have breakfast with the family.

To be avoided. My Mom and I had been here once before for Fish and Chips and a burger. Both were good. No complaints. Decided to give breakfast a try. Disappointing. Asked for extra crispy bacon and got limp, dripping with grease, practically raw bacon. Scrambled eggs tasted of bacon fat. Spuds while not entirely bad had a strange sweet... More

We have been here 4 or five times now and the past two have been disappointing. Last time my Meat Lovers Skillet was more potatoes the anything and was sent back. This time the steak in my wife's Steak and Eggs tasted off. She could not eat it and sent it back after a bite. Both times the server was... More
