A restaurant serving only things grown or produced in Canada. That should be no problem......except no coffee or tea or even pepper. Still interesting and the lunch was well prepared and served and our soup and sandwiches were tasteful. We are not in this part of the country often but this was a good experience and on our next visit... More

The owner and staff are friendly and care about the experience. It is a thouroughly enjoyable meal and atmosphere. He is a high quality chef for a very reasonable price. I highly recommend the experience.

Stopped in for lunch and had a BLT combo. Salad was great but my sandwich was well below par. The bacon was ice cold, massively overdone and tasted like it had been prepared days earlier. The sandwich on itself was bland and nothing to brag about. My wife did enjoy her quiche. The resteraunt itself is very relaxed and I... More

A relaxed restaurant with a natural feel that provides a unique experience. The menu is updated continuously to allow the chef to prepare meals made with all Canadian grown ingredients that will vary depending on in season produce. The chef's creativity and passion come through in the menu.

Excellent quality food and local brews for unbelievable prices. I first came for lunch in 2015 and returned for dinner in 2016. The food is fresh, the flavours are excellent, and the service is speedy (which is great if you're on the way to the theatre). Our group split between the turkey sandwich and the burger and everyone was happy.... More

Great food but, interestingly, they do not serve or cook with anything not grown or produced in Canada. So no pepper, cinnamon, etc. Soups, sandwiches, chili's were good and easily worth repeating. Food was fresh and freshly prepared. Comfortable, central location and friendly.

We stopped inat Canadian Grub for a quick lunch. The biggest problem was, the girl taking orders & serving didn't know her job. When asked questions about the menu, she said that she wasn't sure because she is new. The food was good but it was overpriced. I won't be returning!

My first visit to Canadian Grub and it definitely won't be my last! I had a delicious and flavorful Lobster Club and it was expertly prepared and presented. Polite, friendly, quick, service. Nice, cozy decor. Highly recommended for lunch. Located right in downtown Stratford just steps from the Avon Theatre.

Look at the enormous map on the wall above where you order - THAT'S where the food you're eating comes from! I love this, and how connected we feel to what we're eating. The food is excellent, and the prices are fair. This was a stop on the Savour Stratford Bacon & Ale trail, and we went back because it... More
