a group of our friends attended Thursday's wing night. we ordered our selection of wing flavours and waited, waited, and waited. we waited long enough to order a second round of drinks for our group. we were very disappointed in the time of approximately 30+ minutes it took to serve wings. and seriously thought to leave. there was no communication from the wait staff or the kitchen explaining the delay. it was a bit confusing for our group as about 8 customers were in the restaurant and approximately 5 sfaff were in the restaurant area standing around..

We were visiting Tillsonburg from North Carolina. Popped into the Copper Mug for dinner and a drink. Sat at the bar and enjoyed talking to our bartender, Mike. Great frest perch dinner special. Prepared perfectly. Wonderful local beers available - enjoyed the one from Langton. Reasonably priced, good food.

my wife choose to come to this diner to have brunch together to celebrate my birthday. this was not a very good experience as the waitress did not bring water glasses that we had ordered, did not know the restaurant did not have decaf coffee for our order, did not serve coffee as ordered or check in with us regarding how our food order was. unfortunately, my pancake order did not suit my palate but the waitress did not come around to check in with us. we had to track down our waitress several times to request a 2nd cup of coffee or remind her what we were waiting for. a disappointing culinary experience.

Ming's Garden Restaurant

Reviewed By Leakyroof - Toronto-ish

Decided to give Ming's Garden a try and form my own opinion for myself. Ordered 5 egg rolls, mushroom foo young, honey garlic ribs, Cantonese chow mein, sweet and sour chicken balls and chicken fried rice. The take-out food was served in aluminum containers with paper lids. I do prefer plastic containers with lids. The food was piping hot when I went to pick it up. The taste was quite average...not good and not bad. The only item I didn't care for was the honey garlic ribs. The sauce was not as 'sticky sweet' as I like it. Egg rolls were good but the piece of chicken in the chicken balls was small. Price I paid for food was a bit high. Overall, I would rate the food as average.

Town Cafe Restaurant

Reviewed By Murray S - Hamilton, Canada

It’s a country diner that was packed with locals. It was a main street diner that served up the all usual favourites. I had the fish and chips that came with a bit of salad. They assured me that Pollock was battered in house and when I ate it, I had no complaints. It was tasty; you could actually taste the fish. Sometimes they just take pre-battered fish out of the box. Chef Ramsey would have a hard time to find something to rant about in this down home diner. I would go back to try all their offerings, but I was only passing through. Tillsonburg is south of the 401 freeway about 2.5 hours from Detroit and about 2 hours from Toronto.

Tillson Pizza

Reviewed By Amanda V - Tillsonburg, Canada

This is the best pizza in Tillsonburg (in my opinion). They have great prices, great food and great family owners. The wings are great! I suggest getting the sauce on the side and adding it yourself, they are even better and stay crispier. The garlic bread with cheese we like "left open" so the cheese doesn't stick. They have Delivery as well as lunch combo of a slice & pop for $3 and also dinner convos with wings/pizza/pop/garlic bread.

Met here with friends recently. Large selection with all day breakfast. Had the roast beef with fresh fries. Tons of beef and great fries. Also had garlic bread which was hot here and there and cold elsewhere. Not really sure how they heated it up. Place was fairly busy. Clean inside and nice waitress. would like to try the omelette soon. Looked rather tasty.
