Seated in dining right beside kitchen. Could not really enjoy conversation as the kitchen staff were loud, boisterous, joking around etc....not against happy kitchen staff, just so loud. Next time we will sit in the lounge area.

We took advantage of the Tuesday half price bottle of wine and Happy Hour appies. The evening was perfect and our server, River, provided exceptional and friendly service. A great experience all around.

Another fab night out, sharing a great meal with family and a close friend. Everyone enjoyed their meal and appreciated the efforts of staff and Earls to make us feel safe. Our servers (lucky to have the attention of 2) were excellent.

I would recommend Earl's restaurant anytime. Love their Cajun flavored chicken and salmon. And they have the best sweet toffee cake dessert.

On the menu, for the Cajun salmon it said it came with seasonal vegetables. But when brought out there were no veggies, and we asked our server, and he says it does not come with vegetables. If it doesn’t come with the meal, it should not be on the menu.

My girlfriend and I went to Earls for a date night. We were seated at our table for about 15 minutes and nobody greeted us, brought us waters, nothing! The worst part is that there were a few servers talking to their friends at the table beside us. So we gave our menus back to the host and went to The Keg instead and had a great experience. Two thumbs down!

Husband and I went out for anniversary dinner during covid Stage 2. Earls employees wore masks, there was physical distancing in place and hand sanitizer available.

Food was excellent and putting a candle on our dessert was a nice touch to recognize our anniversary.

It was such a lovely evening out especially since we haven't gone out in 3 months.

My family and I had a great experience, we went out to celebrate Father’s Day. We all love the Three Cheese Spinach Dip it is to die for! Everyone enjoyed their meal; I have a small complaint about my potatoes they were a little overcooked and flavourless. Otherwise everything else was great!

The kitchen was loud with the cook and waiters talking and laughing loud
The bill was brought in the middle of our meals without asking if we wanted to order dessert or anything else on the menu although we had more than 90 minutes left until the restaurant closes

The food was great, the service was great, mostly it was just nice to be out at a restaurant again.
It did feel a little weird to have every take around us empty, but it was still an enjoyable experience. The server was very respectful of our comfort level, and we did not feel unsafe at any point during our meal.

Braeden was a fantastic server. Probably the best we've ever had. Happy hour is daily from 2-5 & 9 - close. Great food and drink prices. We may make this a regular haunt. The food quality was great (chicken tacos, gyoza and dry ribs). We really enjoyed the patio seating. They followed government social distancing and hygiene requirements. Great place to dine for any occasion.

Everything was above average except for the server. She was VERY slow and seemed very inexperienced. I have been to may Resturants where the servers a very good but many of these restaurants seem to want to hire young servers with no experience instead of older more experienced servers. Because of the server I most likely will not be back.

Got seated right by the front doorway. Heavy traffic are and cold walk-in patrons got better areas away from traffic and cold breeze from front door. Service was somewhat lacking.Meal was average. An error in the bill was mentioned and it took a fairly long time to correct the overcharge. They need to work on service coordination and customer attention

I found that in my burger patty was too big for burger and bun was little hard and difficult to chew. Everything else was fantastic and hot chocolate was delicious.

I will definitely recommend Earls Barlow! We had made a reservation for four guests on Valentine's Day and had two additional guests join us last minute. Even though it was super busy, the staff accommodated our request. We even asked to move tables and the staff was mindful of our decision. The food was wonderful and the server was attentive. Top that off with free chocolate-covered strawberries and even though the roses were finished, the manager found two roses for my mom and aunt! This is our go-to location from now on.

The ambiance was nice for Valentine’s Day. We we in the bar but decided to not have alcohol. Meal 1: 8oz steak and potatoes- the steak was ordered well done and received medium. The whole meal was just warm not hot but tasted good. Once the ordered soft drink was empty the server took away the glass and did not offer a refill. Meal 2 - chicken taco meal (gf)- could not taste the chicken and crema because the little corn shells had so much cabbage on them. Was disappointing. Had to ask for hot water refill. Don’t think we will go here again. While it was busy it wasn’t so busy that we could of had better service.

Great food, service and ambiance. Appreciated all of the attention to details like the manager remembering our seating preferences to the roses in the the washrooms and candy at the entry area. A hug from a server and a special send away all made for a wonderful Valentine’s dinner experience.

We celebrated my daughters 16th birthday with friends! They accommodated 8 of us on Valentines Day. Thank you! All the servers and staff were so helpful and friendly. The food was delicious and hot. Our food came quickly even though the restaurant was full! I really don’t have anything negative to say! Great place!

Met the expectations of consistent quality in Earl’s presentation and flavour. Only complaint was the delay on the women’s washroom faucets was so long the soap nearly dried on my hands. Otherwise dining was great.
