Great family no-nonsense short order grill, part of a dying species. As far as we can tell, only place in town for breakfast that is not gentrified.

Before Picton was 'discovered', there were only two places to eat in Picton: Mom's and the Riviera. This restaurant (renamed) is the original Mom's. The menu, service and decor are all pretty much as they were a generation ago. I love it! They are fully licensed but this is one of the few remaining Picton restaurants that doesn't have a... More

I have been going to Gus' for several years they are not a fancy restaurant that you are expected to dress up for. It is a welcoming family restaurant that has great food. Breakfast is great--recommend home fries deep fried, eggs of any kind, and huge lovely pancakes! Variety of lunch and dinner items. If you are in the mood... More

We are a little biased because we live in Picton, but we know we can always count on a tasty and well prepared meal for a great price. The servers are friendly and the service is the best! We also get take out quite often!

Nothing special, but a fun, inexpensive diner, with prompt service. The food for great, but they do close at 8pm, so make sure you get there early.

Gus's restaurant has the very best pancakes in Picton and my grandson ordered ham with his and got a huge, delicious piece. The service is always super quick and the servers are very friendly. Actually all the food they serve is very good - the coconut cream pie is the best ever! I make a point of going there to... More

We had an excellent meal at Gus's Family Restaurant when we visited Picton. We discovered it the last evening we were there or we would have eaten there more often.
