We arrived and although there were many tables open and we had a reservation, we waited 10 minutes to be seated with only 2 groups in front of us. The hostess was clearly out of her comfort zone. Once we were seated we were given menus and looked through them for 5-10 minutes with nobody checking on us or taking a drink order. We closed the menus and waited longer and after about 15 minutes of no service at all we decided to get up and leave. We went to an establishment accross the road and we cared for promptly and correctly.

Not the best experience we've had. Waitress slow, some food cold. She was a little hard to understand at times.

The welcome was warm and they gave us a nice table by a window. My salmon was tasteless, unless you like syrup-tasting salmon. I think it was probably cooked from frozen. The frozen yogurt was also very sweet and no strawberries could be detected. Great place for an easy time with friends, comfortable seating, but could be re-named The Sugar Barrel.

This Pickle Barrel location is very large and is usually pretty busy. I think the size of the menu makes it difficult to execute all dishes with a high level of quality. Food is decent, but not special. I have had hit and miss experiences with their menu. Nachos, salads, fish and chips, and chicken fingers are usually good, because they are simple to execute and hard to get wrong. But the fries are made from frozen, so align your expectations accordingly.

My book club, which is a total of 6 people mostly, have enjoyed meeting at The Pickle Barrel a few times now. The food and service has always been consistently good. We always reserve a table and ask for something quiet to discuss our book and so far we've been lucky as we know how busy the restaurant is.

The Pickle Barrel is a very good restaurant for brunch. The food is outstanding, the service is outstanding (the waiters and waitresses have an excellent knowledge of the menu, and the noise level is also outstanding (very energetic and fun). This restaurant is a must try for brunch. So much variety.

The greeting service was deplorable. When I set the reservation, I mentioned that my daughter requested Pickle Barrel for her 12th birthday dinner. Greeters did not greet her by name or mention that she was the birthday girl. Then we were made to wait almost ten minutes for our table, and weren't even offered a seat while we waited, but were left standing at the front desk. I've never before waited to be seated with a reservation (isn't that the POINT of a reservation?).

The food and table service was fine. For the price, Pickle Barrel has an expansive and engaging menu. But the greeting at this location needs to be fixed.

Always good. Highlight for taking guests with difficult mobility as indoor garage in immediately below and accessible with elevator to mall entrance of restaurant. Parking is validated. This is a key factor for bringing my 89 year old mother for lunch.
