Captain George’s Fish n Chips Review in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig NOV 2, 2015

Captain George’s Fish n Chips Review in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig NOV 2, 2015

I don’t normally review food from chain restaurants, but my dining companion wanted Fish n Chips and we decided to try “the new place” which turned out to be our new Captain Georges in Cornwall. It felt odd being in what had been a lovely and colorful Mexican restaurant.    The new decor is open […]

Esca Gourmet Pizza & Bar Review in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig JULY 28, 2015

Urban renewal fascinates me so I was keen to check out and see what Esca Gourmet Pizza & Bar had done with the old LCBO across from City Hall in Cornwall Ontario. I brought a powerful lawyer with me just in case.  I jest, lawyers like to eat too and my learned companion offered some […]

CFN Reviews Bourdeau’s in Lancaster Ontario by Jamie Gilcig & Garden Girl – April 14, 2015

CORNWALL Ontario –   Not every restaurant review has to be high end.    One of our great CFN writers, Garden Girl (Dawn Jane Guay) cajoled me into taking her out to lunch and we thought what better way to go than do a review. While the original joint we wanted to try was closed […]

CFN Reviews Little Caesars in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig – NOV 18, 2014

CFN Reviews Little Caesars in Cornwall Ontario  by Jamie Gilcig – NOV 18, 2014

(my medium with lots o toppings) CORNWALL Ontario – I’m spoiled by Cornwall’s Old School Montreal style pizza.  Joints like Riverside, North End, Roma’s, Cornwall BBQ and Louis all over the read deal. I’m a pizza prude.  It’s pretty near impossible to get me to go to Box Store pizza joints like Boston Pizza, Dominoes, […]

Restaurant Review – Cedar’s On Wheels in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig – June 26, 2014

CORNWALL Ontario – The little restaurant on the corner of 3rd and Pitt  in Downtown Cornwall Ontario has had a rough record with many trying, but few succeeding, but I have a good vibe about the new Cedar’s On Wheels which just opened. First off I love Shawarma.  Love those garlic potatoes and sides that […]

My favorite Sushi in Cornwall Ontario!

Ruby Sushi Restaurant Review by Guest Reviewer Milena Cardinal of Cardinal Law in Cornwall Ontario

I’m a big Sushi fan. I moved around a lot before settling here in Cornwall. Every time I moved to a different city, the first thing I did was look for the best sushi place. That is why I was so happy when Ruby Sushi opened a few months ago. One visit and I was […]

Moon Thai & Japanese Restaurant Review by Jamie Gilcig – November 21, 2013

Moon Thai & Japanese Restaurant Review by Jamie Gilcig – November 21, 2013

It wasn’t that long ago that Asian food in Cornwall Ontario was your old fashioned doughy pineapple chicken balls smothered in sugary cherry sauce and spare ribs.     In the past five years many of the old school restaurants have closed and evolved. The former Jade Restaurant on 2nd Street East was remodeled and […]

The 3 Willows Vegetarian Restaurant – A Meatless Oasis in Eastern Ontario by Reg Coffey – October 19, 2013

CFN – This terrific vegetarian restaurant can be found in a small industrial building on the Concession 9 Road between Green Valley and Glen Norman, not exactly a high traffic area for vegetarians, or anyone else for that matter. I found out about it from a customer in that area and stopped on my way […]

Dimitri’s Restaurant Review – 19274 Country Rd 2 – 613 931 1919 – Summerstown Ontario

CFN – I love Lamb; especially when it’s done well and for some reason Greek food seems to take Lamb to special heights I’ve rarely seen matched. Coming back from Valleyfield last week my dining companion suggested Dimitri’s Restaurant in Summerstown Ontario.   Mostly known as a pretty village along scenic Highway 2 and the […]

CFN – “Wow, Mom, ….. I googled Gary Farmer’s band, the Troublemaker’s they’re great, the lead guitarist is electric,” my son Carl chirped when I returned from reviewing the The Vic Public House at 580 Church Street in Toronto Ontario.

Russell Manor Bed & Breakfast Bistro in Morrisburg Ontario – REVIEW by Jamie Gilcig – April 15, 2012

Russell Manor Bed & Breakfast Bistro in Morrisburg Ontario – REVIEW by Jamie Gilcig – April 15, 2012

CFN –  There is so much more to dining than simple eating.  A rushed lunch is very different than a leisurely meal with loved ones or friends; where time disappears over the sounds and smells of a communal meal. True dining in many areas is a declining experience in that less and less places of fine dining […]

Winners Sports Bar Chicken Wing Review!   BEST WESTERN PLUS Parkway Inn & Conference Centre Cornwall Ontario – 4 of 5 Red Hats REVIEW

Cornwall ON – Cornwall Ontario has a long tradition when it comes to tasty Chicken Wings.  It goes back to Freddies and their 10 cent wing nights which would draw line ups and sell as many as 20,000 wings in a single night. I was talking with Paul Lefebvre who was reminiscing about it.  He […]
