Ajax - Whitby Restaurant Suggestions?

Ok fellow foodhounds..We need help. My MIL is in a nursing home in Ajax and we enjoy taking her out for lunches and dinners. We live in Mississauga and haven't been able to find anything different other than the "chain" type restaurants, Swiss Chalet, Milestones, Montanna's, etc. WE NEED HELP.
Are there no "charming little" family type GOOD Restaurants in this area? Please help us. We are looking for something cozy and charming with good food for an elderly MIL..Thanks...I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

    1. I second Burbs.

      I also hear that Shrimp Cocktail in Oshawa is good, but I haven't been so take that with a grain of salt.

      1. Teddy's in Oshawa is a good family style deli-restaurant, but there may be line-ups.

        In Pickering Village (west Ajax, on Hwy 2) there is Mt Everest, Indian food and definitely family operated,
        Casa Verde, a small Italian spot,
        and Sauter's, an Austro-Hungarian place with a good Sri Lankan cook.

          second Teddys. Though if I may correct you Jayt90, there WILL be line ups. It doesnt matter what nigth you go, monday, wed, fri, sunday, the line will be out the door by 4:30 pm. Its madness.

        2. Try Krebs in Grandmother (who has a pretty limited diet) enjoys it and so does the rest of the family. Hot Rocks (don't be fooled by the strip mall location) is good too, although the food may not be to the liking of a more elderly food taste as the seasonings, etc are more modern.

            We went to Krebs for Thanksgiving Brunch and were disappointed..They do have a good sticky toffee pudding though............

          2. Thanks everyone so far. I've printed a few of the MIL has a pretty good appetite and she likes things with a bit of spice..........Hot Rocks and Burbs seems to be on our list so try first. I've kept a running list to leave in my car lol..Thanks
