McGinnis has recently introduced an "Early Bird", "preset type" style menu for early evening customers. Although the price point is good, the food was average and uninspiring. This part of their menu needs to be revisited.

We held an anniversary dinner in the private dining room last night for 30 people and everything was just amazing! Everyone loved the food and the service was above and beyond. Our heartfelt thanks to managers Lauren, Caley, Shannon and wait staff: Simeon and Brady. You guys are awesome!!! We will definitely be back. Thanks again!

A spontaneous dinner outing landed us at McGinnis tonight. A once-favourite spot of years ago, we had moved away from visiting in favour of other restaurants we had grown to enjoy. A few months back, we tried it again, and were pleasantly suprised. A freshing twist on salads, burgers that delight, and the best quality chicken fingers were a few... More

Defiantly going to come back! The food was amazing and couldn't have asked for better service. The server had to be the best server I have ever had at any restaurant. All the servers we encountered were very pleasant and friendly. New favourite place!

We have been going to this restaurant for the past 30 years. I remember having my daughter's birtday party there when she was about 6. My husband and I had our first date there. Although the decor has changed it still has a "home" atmosphere to us. We have our Christmas party there every year and they are always great... More

I do not love this restaurant. Service and drinks are always great, but their food sucks! I had the caesar salad dressing just recently, it tasted like raw fish with the overwhelming power of anchovies. I'm all for homemade, but if you can't pull it off, stick to Kraft.

I have been coming to McGinnis for years, sometimes it's great - other times not so much. My family reserves out the party room during the holidays and I always leave pleased and excited for my next visit. When I come with a smaller group I am typically slightly let down with the food and service. They have made lots... More

This restaurant is right in our neighborhood so it's really convenient and we eat here a lot. They recently started offering an early bird special which I would say is the best deal in town. It's Monday to Thursday between 4pm and 6pm. Two people may choose one appetizer to share. You can choose between fried mozzarella balls, chicken bruschetta... More

So we go for brunch. There's about five brunch items, including eggs Benedict (with poached eggs), scrambled eggs and bacon and a fried egg sandwich. Basically, all the ways to prepare eggs. However, you can't order fried eggs with bacon. They won't substitute. You have to get scrambled. Does this make sense? Food was great. Service was great. Place is... More
