Waitress was upfront in saying that there would be a wait for lunch as it was only her waiting on the tables and the cook. Having said that, we were not in a hurry, the beer was good, and it was a nice day to eat outside. Had the fish and chiops which were good and reasonably priced.

There were four of us stopping in for an afternoon drink and snack. We sat for 15 minutes waiting for anybody to come and take a drink order. Finally we went to the bar and ordered our selves. They were delivered to the table. We also ordered nachos. They were good but average. After waiting for another 20. I went... More

Haven't been here in a couple of years. It wasn't bad last time. But this time it was not good. The Caesar salad had a weird taste to it. The calamari was stringy and served with a small amount of taziki sauce. It was a strange and different choice of dip...and not very complimentary. The burger and fries were OK.... More

Elora is a lovely little town and we were fortunate to be there in the summer when the weather was good so the patio was a nice place to stop for dinner. The Metcalfe is never going to win prizes for innovative cooking but is good at what it does and the cost is more than reasonable - however, beware... More

The food was good but quite average. We both ordered the Metcalfe Salad. It could have used more dressing, so we asked for a little more on the side. I believe it was advertised as a mixed green salad, however, it only consisted of arugula. I would have liked to have more variety in the greens. We also ordered some... More

Enjoyed an Elora Players performance in Bissell Park this summer and then trundled along for some eats. The Metcalfe patio was mildly tempting, but as usual was popular and very busy. Inside was better for the one of our party who had too much sun anyway but as soon as we were seated a large noisy crowd of twenty somethings... More

This place is just down the street from the Elora Mill and no doubt draws folks in because there is a patio. It's also close to some of the quaint touristy shops on the main street, so the location is good. The food however, is absolutely awful. My friend and I had the pulled pork sandwich, which is one of... More

Food quality has gone downhill. Not what like it used to be. Ribs where very chewy and tough barely any sauce. Chicken nuggets seemed to be over done in the fryer unless the batter was suppose to be crunchy and dark brown. Deep fried pickles where a little burnt as well. Very disappointed used to go there as a kid.... More

We had a great experience at Metcalfe. They have a nice large patio, pleasant servers, and delicious food. We would definitely return and recommend.
