We went in for lunch on a weekday. The place looks rundown but we gave it a chance. Several items on the menu were not available. We decided on fish and chips and fries. The food was OK, but a little pricey for what we received. Will not go back.

Those recent negative reviews are completely different from our experience this morning. Excellent food (I had the Castroville omelet with artichokes), fine service, served up fast. There was even music playing in the background, in sharp contrast to what one review suggested. We enjoyed it immensely and would recommend it strongly.

Unfortunately, like the American Tin Cannery, this restaurant has lost its drive and purpose. The food used to be excellent and the atmosphere was fun and exciting. There used to be cool 50's music playing, paper and crayons for the budding artist, clean, well stocked facilities and excellent food and service. Sadly, it's not the same. The whole feel of...

Food was not worth the price. We paid more here for 3 sandwiches than we paid for a nice dinner and drinks elsewhere in town. The food wasn't very good either and the place was ran down. I would walk a little further to the next place.

After reading about the restaurants in P.G. in our hotel room literature my family and I tried to go to Archies last Friday evening for dinner. We arrived just before 6 p.m., filled the meter where we parked and walked into the restaurant. At this time we were told that the restaurant was closed. This is even though they had... More

We were the only ones there which made me a bit wary. Had an omelette and breakfast burrito. Both were great, best breakfast on the trip. Service was fine, given we were alone most of the time.

This the second worst restaurant that I have ever been to in my life. Not clean. Absolutely the worst service ever. I checked on my order twice. Twice the the same person I ordered from lied and said they were cooking my food right then. When I started to make a scene after waiting 45 minutes for a burger, they... More

It doesn't get any worse than this. From the roach we saw crawling up the wall while we were ordering to the unbelievably sour nasty attitudes of the girls behind the counter taking our order to the absolutely Un-eatable food here, this was absolutely one of the worst dining experiences we have ever had!!! The burger (see pictures) looked like... More

Came in for late breakfast around 11:00am. Breakfast supposedly served until 2:00pm so the sign outside said. Ordered the Archie breakfast, 2 eggs, potatoes & toast. Bacon was extra. The "country style potatoes" were dry, overcooked, burned, obviously reheated from another day - too dry to swallow even loaded with ketchup. Bacon was not bacon strips but greasy pieces of... More
