Match Eatery and Public House - Point Edward
Breakfast on the Patio.
I have been to Match twice this summer.
Once for Lunch and once for Dinner.
Both times the Service was the WORST I have ever experienced at any Restaurant.
The servers are Rude and inexperienced.
Looks like they don’t have experience in the hospitality
Industry . They keep coming to the table as soon as you sit down repeatedly asking if you are ready to order.
They are not polite or courteous. Both times I ordered sparkling water. Each time they had to go looking all over to find Perrier or Sparkling water ( as advised by the servers)
MATCH needs to hire more experienced servers.
I do not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
I will NEVER go back to this restaurant.
Very pleasant first time visit to Match. Service and food were excellent. Great value on the happy hour menu. I will be back!
Food was great! Not too expensive. Patio is gorgeous! Our waitress was phenomenal (sorry I don't remember he name). We come here for date night all the time!
Linda was great; tried very hard. Nachos were very disappointing. Lots of chips but hardly any toppings. Complete ripoff for 23$ imo!
The fish portions were extremely small and dried out.They made up for it with far too many French. Fries
The fish taco wrap was crisp and slightly burned.There was very little fish and covered with a lot of coleslaw.
Wait staff very friendly and accommodating
Atmosphere and soft padded dining chairs were great
Food was well presented appropriate temperature
Waitress was excellent
Anniversary lunch on the patio.
Great service. Fish n Chips are awesome.
Pretty noisy. People in front of us didn't have a reservation and got sat by the window. We had a reservation and got sat near the bar???????
Our party for 3 ate lunch out on the patio. It was a beautiful day. We had the special which was tacos. 2 of us had fish and 1 had chicken. My friend found it too spicy but the fish tacos were delicious. Margaritas we also delicious! Dessert was fantastic. The sticky toffee was suggested so we had that but one of us had the key lime dessert in a jar! All choices were delicious! The only thing we didn’t like was the announcements from the PA system about winners in the casino. A little loud...
Good! as always. Keep coming back.
There were 4 adults in our party. Appetizer and meals were hot and delicious. Server was interactive, pleasant and hospitable from the get go. At no time did we feel rushed to leave. Even with the live entertainment playing we were still able to have a conversation without having to raise our voices over the music. This speaks volumes as one person in our party has a hearing imparement.
We had to wait almost a hour for our food. It was not busy actually very slow.
Great place to eat right by river. Great view. Went after a long days sailing and it was nice to cool down and refuel. Definitely go again.
I ordered the blackened chicken. I told the waitress I wanted no potatoes and extra veggies. She literally gave me chicken with literally no exaggeration 8 green beans. This meal cost 21 dollars. When you are charging prices like that, a little more than 8 green beans would have been nice. I told the waitres and all she said was I told the chef what you wanted. She didn’t do anything to help the situation. I was not impressed.
Enjoyed the evening and the atmosphere. Will definitely go back
Restaurant had only a few patrons. Took an hour to get our food. Our orders weren't correct. We were told there wasn't enough help in the kitchen. Felt bad for our waitress as no other waitresses would help her.
3rd time visiting the Match Eatery and Public House - Point Edward. We loved it the best this time. Great table, great atmosphere. Last time we were there, we had to listen to constant announcements of peoples names over the speaker system , I am assuming something to do with the casino.. Really cheapened the atmosphere. We won't return if that happens again. Our food was "okay". My personal preference when picking a restaurant is more the atmosphere and the service, then the food quality and price. Our waitress was the best yet..
Great food. Had a great time
Would like to go back and enjoy the outside seating area.
They had no record of our reservation but no issues seating us anyway. Food was quite mediocre with salads being uninspired and greens a bit on the wilted side. Other dishes were okay but not particularly inspired choices.
We found the buffet line up too long....suggestion to move the Omelette station away from the rest of food since I was not getting an Omelette, but did not want to butt in. everyone that day was a little confused and we had no direction. Staff did their best to keep the trays filled, but when we got there ...no bacon, no chicken etc. , eggs looked dry. They did replenish after I asked for some chicken, but waited 10 minutes at station.
Maybe we came at the wrong time on Mother’s Day....but should have had extra staff anticipating the volumes.
Good luck in the future
We had the steak special and it was amazing! The service was excellent. I've been before for lunch a couple of times and the food and service was really bad so I was skeptical coming for dinner. I was very pleasantly surprised and impressed.
Although the view from our table was lovely, our experience was interrupted several times by very loud announcements for a contest. I ordered a draught beer that wasn’t very cold although my turkey/Brie club and fries were. I was expecting a warm sandwich, given that the cheese was melted. On the whole, I might recommend for the patio and the view, but not for the food or for the ambience.
Our food was over cooked..both appetizers and entreees..our server had worked a 10 hr shift and was tired and not that sympathetic about our experience..we were celebrating a friends bday who had been going through a hard time...very disappointed
Enjoyed our meal except my wife ordered fish tacos and got chicken tacos. Didn't realize until we got the bill. She thought the tacos didn't take like fish. Other than that the food was very good.
Our table had a nice view of the river but the noise level was so high that we had trouble conversing. Otherwise food & service were good.
While I had been told by two other people that the daytime food was excellent but "dinner by the night time chef is only so-so," I found that the food we had at this dinner was just as good as the food I have enjoyed on 3 separate lunch occasions and I enjoyed those meals and service very much. We did, however, experience very slow, albeit very friendly service on this occasion. We were a table of 8 and there were only a few other tables occupied when our 5 pm reservation began, and we expressed to our server that we had to be out by 6:30 for an event we were attending, yet we did not get out until 6:50 and that was only after chasing down our server for the bill. The place was full and busy by the time we left, but that only occurred during our last 30-40 minutes so doesn't explain why our service was slow and the meals took so long, especially when they were mostly only appetizer menu items and a few salads. So, while not as timely as we had hoped, the food was still very good and the service was friendly. Service was always excellent during my previous 3 luncheon visits.
They food and prices were great ! It was very nice inside and the servers were nice !
The Match Eatery is a great venue with a relaxing atmosphere. I went for breakfast with a friend I haven’t seen in ages and the server gave us space to chat and good service. The food was good - seemed a little expensive for breakfast and coffee, with a tip it was nearly $17 for one person.
Fresh, hot food. We all ordered something different and all six of us enjoyed our meals. Great waitress!
Delicious lunch! It was quiet there that day so my friend and I had a chance to catch up !
Les ailes de poulet étaient très sec ... c’est à dire repasser moins deux ou trois fois! La serveuse a vidé une demie bouteille de vin dans une seule coupe... et mon steak avait beaucoup de neuf....
À mon avis, c’est un des pire endroit à manger à Sarnia...
This is a really nice restaurant. I like that the food is amazing, the wait staff was great and the naise levels aren't too high that you can talk to people around you. The prices are resonable and like I said the food is fabulous. I have eaten there several times before and it has been good everytime, food and service.
I would have given this a five star except that I had made reservations and when we were led to our seat it was a booth in the middle of the resaurant which would be like sitting next to the kitchen. I did complain and we were given a much better seat. So it was all good.
It was my birthday and it will be my last time there! Wrong wine, over 1 hour wait for meal with only 3 out of 4 came out. With the other meal coming 10 minutes later. Plus, one meal was soggy and cold. This was my 2 nd chance for this place it failed the Thursday before with club house pizza serve with cold brown chicken meat! Who serves brown meat on pizza! Plus promised birthday cake never ever came out
Asked to have our seating arrangements changed. We were ignored. No response from the woman who took us to our original seats. Truly disrespectful and rude on her part. Had to move up the hierarchy to this done. No great desire to go back.
Very nice ambience .Good value for the money.would recommend too friends and family.
Excellent evening, the app made making a reservation super easy. My requests were met as I asked for a table close to the entertainment and extra seats later on. Food and service for the evening was excellent as well! We will be back!
Good restaurant with tasty food ,a bit expensive but good !
Was there because we were given a two for one entree coupon. Service was great, but food was so so. Fish was from battered frozen! Right in the river should have fresh fish!! Wings were small, Caesar salad was a joke! Deconstructed! It was so bad! Sorry we were hoping for a better meal!!
Great location. Great vegetables. Awful steaks and shrimp. Baseball steak tough and overdone. Turf and surf had small overcooked shrimps and steak was supposed to be medium rare but was gray on the outside and barely pink on the inside. Tasted like a pre tenderized piece of beef. So disappointed that this terrific location has been ruined by wall to wall televisions and mediocre food when both dishes we ordered we over $25 each. Definitely not worth it.
