Diner Reviews
  • "Love this restaurant and the friendly service. Authentic and real its becoming my go-to spot when I visit my daughter and her friends at Queen...fabulous food but more importantly the owner cares -- "
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Generally disappointing. I took my girlfriend there for a date. It was noisy, the burger was pink, the decor was awkward and mismatched, the waitress was shrill and abrupt, The food was extremely expensive considering the quality. The place had the atmosphere of swiss chalet/denny's and the music from a department store. The appetizer was the only highlight (Some sweet potato dish). The pickles were also good. No after dinner mints.. just cheap suckers. The slanted inset lighting on the ceiling made it difficult to read the menus. The desserts looked delicious, but we did not try them."

  • "Four of us dined before going to the Grand Theater next door. It was my daughter-in-laws birthday and the staff heard us talking about it and piece of cake with candle was presented to her free of charge. That was special and "over the top". Owner/manager always very friendly to everyone in restaurant. Food always good."

  • "From the minute you walk into the restaurant, you feel welcomed by the staff. It is energetic, fun and has an upbeat energy. You will usually see the owner helping out with a smile on his face. Great place!"

  • "We went to Megalos for a Valentines dinner. They had a special menu, what a great meal. It was amazing. Th service was top notch, we would just get to the bottom of our glasses and we had another drink on the table, our server had a great sense of humor. I would go back to Megalos in a heartbeat."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Always a great experience. The staff are wonderful, very polite and not intrusive but engaged when they are serving you. The food is on a whole new level - everything I've ever tasted from megalos is amazing. I've never had a bad experience in the 5 years I've been dining there."

  • "My husband and I had dinner at Megalo's just before attending a show at the theatre next door. Food was good and the server went out of her way to treat us well. Can't beat the convenience if you're going to the Grand."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We went for dinner before a show at The Grand and because there was a show and Febfest and a show at the Krock Centre that night it was very busy and some people couldn't get a table. Even with that we found the service and attention excellent and didn't feel rushed because of a busy night. It was a little noisy that night but have been there when it's not so busy and it's fine."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Quickly becoming our go-to restaurant for date nights and when we have dessert craving. Delicious breakfast menu and the $3.75 breakfast is unreal!"
    Dined on 2/2/2014
  • "We were served great dinners politely and promptly. We were attending a show at the Grand Theatre so having such quick and reliable service made for an enjoyable evening. We will definitely make this our go to spot before a show!"
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "If you're looking for somewhere to get your parents to take you out to when they come visit, choose here! The food is great, a little outside a student budget but not ridiculous. It's nice to dress up a bit but you won't feel under dressed. The crowd is mostly adults until later when the first dates start coming out. Over all it's a nice place, great food and an extensive drink list."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "This restaurant was VERY accommodating for those with special needs diets. The service was stellar and the food was very delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant! I will be coming back."

  • "Best " before theatre" spot to dine. I come to Megalo's with my husband, my women friends or my grandchildren. It is a comfortable, convenient dining location for theatre goers . The food and service are great and the feeling is familial!"
    Dined on 11/26/2013
  • "We went to Megalos prior to an evening at the theatre. Service was very efficient, friendly and professional. We didn't feel rushed at all. Food was very good, well prepared and presented nicely. Separate checks were not a problem and we were a group of seven. Being able to reserve online was an added bonus."
    Dined on 11/15/2013
  • "Hamburgers are fresh ground beef; served with a nice salad (either Caesar or slaw) and small home cut fries. All very tasty. Fish and chips are popular too. Great pre-theatre location."
    Dined on 11/15/2013
  • "I took a risk going to Megalos for a first date as I had never been there before. The risk was definitely worth it. The service was excellent and the food even better. It's safe to say it wont be the last time I go there."
    Dined on 11/1/2013
  • "I don't think it was all waitresses but ours was horrible. Did not offer more drinks after the first one and was rude and inturrupted conversations. Way more busy checking her phone than serving. Good food and a great spot perfect for a catch up woth friends."
    Dined on 10/18/2013
  • "Food was good and service was excellent. Clean place. Will come back again."
    Dined on 10/13/2013
  • "The menu has an excellent mix of entrées - platters, pizza, pasta and full dinner meals. We very much like the choice of gluten free and vegetarian as some family members require that. The vegetables in each of our meals were obviously fresh and cooked just before going on the plate - delicious - We will certainly return again soon. The dessert is so good, may start with that!"
    Dined on 9/19/2013

  • "I've been to Megalos for brunch and it was great, value and service were above average. I went for dinner last Saturday and if that was my only exposure to the restaurant I would never return again. Food was mediocre at best, I think I would prefer to go to a chain restaurant for the price point of this place and it would have parking nearby."

  • "We were there Mother's Day as we seemed to have rediscovered this restaurant. So far no disappointments"
    Dined on 5/12/2013

  • "We had their Sunday Brunch., featuring 2 syles of Eggs Benedict. I also tried their French Onion Soup-a generous helping and very tasty. The egg dish featured roasted potatoes-a little under-seasoned for my taste. All-in-all a friendly spot that appears to cater to a college crowd."
