edgewater restaurant stoney creek
My husband and I have recently moved to Dundas from the GTA and we 're wondering about the quality of food at the Edgewater Manor restaurant in Stoney Creek. We like up scale gourmet dining (but also enjoy well prepared creative ethnic dishes including cuisines like French, Spanish, Indian etc. in casual restaurants.) Have eaten at Quatrefoil- very impressive and yes it is expensive but worth it to celebrate milestones etc.!! Getting back on topic Is Edgewater worth trying?
The food, service and ambiance are very good. Is it my top choice? No. Based on what you described above I would recommend Blacktree in Burlington or Twisted Lemon in Cayuga. Not saying the Edgewater Manor isn't worth a try but I personally prefer the other two I mentioned. Both are absolutely fantastic. Dress can be fancy or smart casual and the menu changes regularly. Both have websites you may want to check out.
I haven't been to Edgewater in a few years, but did enjoy it when I went.
If you're looking for other restaurants in the area, you might want to give Koosh in Westdale a try -an Italian Bistro, with a casual feel. It's become a favourite of ours.
On Locke St., Earth to Table Bread Bar is a great choice - same owners as the Ancaster Mill - great pizzas, soups, sandwiches. http://breadbar.ca/
Chuck's Burgers on Locke are also great, but the place is small, and the seats hard to find during peak periods.
I've heard really good things about Boo's Bistro on James St. S., but still haven't made it there. It's on my list.
For Indian, India Village in Ancaster is a family favourite; they're currently working on opening a place in Dundas, too. http://www.indiavillage.ca/
For a casual lunch, Detour Coffee in Dundas is also a great pick. The smoked meat sandwich is a winner, but you really can't lose there.
Have fun exploring some of our local treasures, and let your fellow Chowhounders know what your new favourites are!
