I finally decided to try Phinley's for the first time after living in Stratford for two years. We arrived at 6:45 and found it closed? Is this the end of the only restaurant in Stratford, too bad!

Food quality is just okay. Service staff very friendly. I had the chicken parmigiana and the sauce was tasteless and very runny.

Meal was great as well as service. Very clean atmosphere. We asked to turn down the coolness and they did so favourably.

I love the breakfast here. Very well priced and you leave full. Waitresses are very good too! I would highly recommend this location for a breakfast for those who do not want to spend a lot of money. Have the #3!

This was the second time that I ate Phinley's Diner. I had done several errands and realized it was lunch time. I enjoy breakfast and I was pleased to discover that the meal was served all day! As soon as I arrived I was greeted by a server who lead me to a table. All of the staff were friends... More

This little restaurant was close to the motel we were staying at. It was easy to get to and we had both a dinner and a breakfast there. Both were good and both our severs were nice.

Great service. Consistently good food. Reasonable prices. Burgers to die for!!! They won PEI Burger Love competition a few yrs ago for their "Smokey Fox" burger. You won't regret ordering it!

More of a downhome feel, service is great. The smoking fox has to be one of the best burgers I've ever had!
