We had a meal that tasted home cooked, and were excellent sized portions. We loved our waitress too. Very friendly spot.

Excellent, attentive service; very helpful to people with food allergies. We ate dishes made with local fish and they were excellent. Tea was nicely served. I would have had a beer but had a long drive ahead. It's worth walking around Windsor as well as eating here. It is a picturesque town.

I should know by now that pub grub in Canada is pretty substandard unlike in Ireland where it is great. But we needed to eat so we took a walk around the reservoir, not particularly attractive, and settled for this place. There were having music inside which we opted against so we ate on the patio which was on the... More

The Spitfire is your friendly local pub/restaurant. It is a busy spot but the service is fast and friendly...and the food is good. They will adjust the selections to your taste as much as they can which works for fussy me and the prices are very reasonable We usually go on weekends when there is live entertainment and we usually...

This is, by far, my favorite Pub. The food is excellent. There is a wonderful selection of beers on tap. And the staff is always very friendly. It is one of those places that leaves a wonderful taste in your mouth (in more than just the physical way).

We stopped at The Spitfire to kill time. Our server was pleasant and friendly and there was a nice ambience. We ordered a fish platter to share and it was absolutely delicious and reasonably priced. Would recommend The Spitfire.

My husband and I had two meals at The Spitfire Arms, a lunch and dinner. The food was great--I had curry for dinner and the Reuben and poutine (my first poutine ever) for lunch. Our waitress, Mina? Nina? was amazing, fun and helpful (we asked for her when we went back the second time). We did choose to go up... More
