When entering the Buckram Stables for breakfast on a Tuesday morning we immediately noticed the warm atmosphere - no plastics but wood, no loud colours but a gentle green, and the equestrian theme of the decor used in a tasteful and not at all kitschy manner. The waitress showed us to one of the booths and we both ordered a... More

We loved the old North Shore equestrian decor in this restaurant. Food is excellent and the service was superb as always. We have eaten there a number of times over the past 20 years.

Got off at the wrong stop on the train by accident so figured would grab a glass of wine and burger. Good call. Super friendly bar tender and staff. Great burger and wine selection.

The pub-like like decor creates a warm and comfortable atmosphere. The menu offers many options that include wonderful soups, salads, seafood, pastas as well as a variety of burgers. The service is always friendly and attentive. In the warm weather the outdoor patio is available and is even dog friendly.

Stabilizer is the way to go if you want a burger. Pretty good waffle fries as well. Waitress was pleasant and helpful.

WOW Just WOW. First time there and was blown away by the steamers. I've had steamers at many many places, but none compare to these. I can only have steak on occasion, but was so happy I did, first it was man sized and done perfectly, Even the sides were perfect. This was a real pleasure.

For the best burger in the area, this is the place. The Stabilizer is a big burger, correctly cooked, on an oversized English muffin, with sauteed onions, melted cheese, tomato, very crisp bacon, pickles, and choice of fries. Get the waffle fries. Get a beer. Sit inside publike or outside on the golf course (OK, it's a fenced in patio... More

Four of us dined on a Tuesday night. Food was tasty, appealing, and generous. Service was excellent and friendly. Hey! … These go a long way in a dining experience, yes? Fellow diners all were enjoying themselves, and a hum of general satisfaction filled the air. Dr. Scott says: Don't hesitate. Check it out.

The Stabilizer burger (also available in chicken or turkey) is a solid burger that is covered in sautéed onions, mushrooms, bacon, with cheddar and mozzarella cheese ($15). The restaurant feels one step above a pub, and is very warm and charming. They take reservations, but are not always required which makes it nice for a last minute meal. I've been... More
