It all began with a love story and a dream. Linwood, a chef, and Ellen, a reporter, met 36 years ago in a restaurant of course! They married and began to envision that someday they would open a restaurant of their own. The restaurant’s first business plan was written at their dining room table on an electric typewriter. In 1988 Linwoods opened its doors, and it has been a labour of love for more than thirty years.

Linwoods’ cuisine consists of the freshest ingredients, and inventive preparation. Our service is warm and attentive. We have developed a reputation for consistency an attention to detail. These qualities are key to our catering business as well. Our team has worked hard to connect to our community, and we value our customers. These values have been central to Ellen and Linwood’s vision, and we hope are felt by our customers each day.

    Food was great and the service provided by our waitress was very good. I recommend the fish based dishes. Some of the best I’ve had. The only reason I’m rating the service and overall experience as 4 and not 5, is that I found some of the male staff to be a little bit rushed and not in a good mood.

    I would have given it 5 stars except for the server. Our reservation was at 5:30pm on a Saturday evening (best we could get on short notice). Usually, the server will come, greet you, provide drink menu and check with you in a few minutes. She came every 3 minutes and from the start, we felt rushed. She had a “manic” energy which made our experience mixed. The food, the restaurant, where we sat…all great, but when she came around, she was short, disingenuous, and hurried. It’s a shame because what was supposed to be a nice evening out with friends became a discussion during the meal and on the way home on what was wrong with the server. We just made another reservation and hope we don’t get the same server again.

    We attended Linwoods for our 26th Anniversary. Everything was perfect. Our waitress Kelly made us feel at home and catered to, the food was magnificent. The cocktails were spectacular! Loved every second of it! Highlights included the lobster tempura in Honey Butter, the strip steak carpet bagger style, and the blood orange martini!

    I treated 2 friends to dinner at Linwood’s for their birthdays. This was another excellent dining experience. The onion soup, scallops and Brussels Caesar were yummy, and I was so happy to see the delicious liver back on the menu. I ate the whole entree and was tempted to lick the plate. So yummy! Thanks, Sister, for your usual excellent service and attention and to the chefs for helping to make our dinner so memorable !

    Linwood's has been a long favorite of mine. This was a special dinner, celebrating my 70th Birthday with my best girlfriend and my family. Looking forward to your Spring menu. I live in PA, but hope to be back for your Spring Menu (especially the fresh pea salad).

    Delicious food, excellent service. And the new owner, Tom, stopped at our table to say hello. And parking is a breeze. Nice to see a flower arrangement at the front desk; there should always be one there, IMHO.
