Worst meal I've eaten

  • 1

Some friends decided to have a meal (for a special occasion) in the Yonge/Sheppard area and invited a few other friends (myself and my husband included) to help them celebrate. Initially, they first chose Tandoori House, but that idea was nixed because someone developed migraines when eating Indian food. So we went to Stoney's. What a mistake.
The service is inept. We had to repeat our food and drink orders many times.
We ordered an appetizer platter to share. It was filled with wings (bland, even with a dipping sauce), chicken fingers (over-breaded and overcooked), jalapeno poppers (soggy) and spring rolls (greasy). All of these items were obviously out of a freezer package!
I ordered fish and chips for my main. Two thin pieces of thickly-battered, mushy fish were on a plate crowded by a heap of greasy McCain Superfries (crinkle-cut, no less). The oil both were cooked in was old. The accompanying 'slaw was boring and flavourless. The iced tea I was drinking with my meal was too sweet and from a powdered mix, I'm sure.
Two of my friends also ordered the fish and chips and didn't finish their plates, either. Two friends ordered the club sandwich, both of which were garnished with soggy lettuce and under-ripe tomatoes. The sandwiches also came with a heap of (no-so-) Superfries.
Wasn't Stoney's a victim of Restaurant Makeover a while ago? I understand that the show can be the kiss of death, but do the fine folks in North York not care about good food?
My advice: don't visit Stoney's. Ugh.

  1. It's a shame, they used to serve decent food at a reasonable price. I ate there many times when my buddies lived in the condos across the street. I believe the original owners sold it after the makeover.

    I haven't eaten there in probably 5 years so I can't really comment on much other than what I've heard through the grapevine.
