    When you walk by the smell will pull you in but it's a bit on the greasy side. They have a lot of wraps that sound good on the menu but they put way too much mayo on them. I'm a vegetarian but my friends were unimpressed with the burgers. Nothing bad but nothing good. Tried in twice, same experience both times.

    There's a neat milkshake place nearby called Daddy-o's that I'd like to try out before summer ends. Could be a good place for dessert.

    1. I've been to the freshwood grill once, and enjoyed it. We sat in the back patio, which although slanted and small is probably nicer than sitting close to the grill in the summer.

      The food was good, not your generic burger and club sandwich, but nothing too fancy. I had a steak sandwich, and didn't find it overly saucy. They did have some daily fish specials that sounded appealing. We've been thinking of going back was a good, relaxing casual meal.

      1. I went once with my husband. I had the steak wrap. The steak was ok, slightly overcooked. It got a bit messy with all the juice from the mushroom in the wrap. Husband had the burger. It was just a regular burger at a regular resturant. The place was busy compared to the other restaurants on Roncey. So maybe we just picked the wrong items off the menu.

        Overall, it was ok. The food was alright. The patio is a good place to hang out in the summer.

        1. I'm generally a big fan, and have been going regularly for months now. The grill is very good, and the flavour it adds to many of the foods is very nice. But I've noticed the quality slipping in the last 2 or 3 months. For the first time, their brunches are ho hum. They have a killer smoked salmon bagel, but the last two weeks the bagel has been stale.

          Big mistake.

          1. I don't remember what we had but the brunch there was also quite good. They have a nice takeout menu too.
