Weather was terrible for patio dining but not faulting restaurant for that. Waiter was inattentive. Did not check on us after serving food or to check on our drinks. We had to hail down another server to order second drinks. Understandable that restaurant did not have full menu due to pending covid shutdown, but I was called by restaurant to confirm reservation and to ask if we were interested in a special 3-course meal, and the fact that they were not serving their dinner menu was not brought up. We were celebrating my wife’s 50th birthday and this was a very disappointing experience all around.

No dine in allowed due to pandemic cases have been rising , Outdoor lunch is perfect at Heritage park.
Great food and great environment sitting outdoor at the sunny day. Their classic burger and steak are very yummy which come with either fresh salad or fries.
Servers are friendly, enjoyed our lunch so much for a reason price. Highly recommended to friends. Thank you.

The service was good but the dinner was not up to the standard we have enjoyed previously. When we pointed out that the schnitzel was overcooked and very dry they provided us with dessert on the house. We will go back and try again.

They were closed and did not notify me. A sigh on the door said see you next week
How can they take a reservation then ignore you

Responded on April 17, 2021

Unfortunately due to the unprecedented times the Selkirk needed to close. I personally called all reservations leaving a phone message or by sending an email explaining the situation. I do sincerely apologize that this message was not conveyed to you. I do hope that you will give us another chance as we were taking necessary precautions as the health and safety of our guests and staff is the most important thing.

The salmon was a little overcooked; I will ask for a little pink in the middle next time. Snitzel was tough. Wonderful serving. All the vegetables were excellent. Great value with specials. And half price wine Service is top class.

The dining facilities are inviting , with only 5 tables open, so quite quiet.
Staff were reasonably attentive, but not intrusive.
overall we had a very enjoyable lunch!
Will recommend to our friends and family.

The restaurant was setup beautifully with the current restrictions at 25% of dining capacity as it was split between the usual restaurant and part in Gasoline Alley. We dined on the Gasoline Alley side, so we were able to enjoy all of the automobilia and vehciles, such a cool experience, very safe and super well prepared food! Thank you for an outstanding and lovely Valentines evening.

Our experience at the Selkirk Grill was excellent! A small complaint was that the courses were brought out a little too fast but we understand why if there was another sitting. Our chateaubriand was done exactly to our liking and the veggies were perfect. The tables were very far apart and we felt very safe. All staff were friendly and helpful. We love Heritage Park and are hoping to have lunch on the train this summer. We have enjoyed the experience for 3 years in a row and hope it will happen again in 2021. Lois

Perfect Valentine’s Day dinner. Service was highly professional with personal care that our meal and the experience were ideal. We ordered the special, chateaubriand; it was prepared exactly to our stated preference, came with a generous variety of veggies and silky potatoes gratin. I am looking forward to return visits and working my way through their menu. Thank you Selkirk

Selkirk Grill never disappoints! The food is excellent and healthy portions, the wine list is also excellent and priced for value, the service is professional and polite, the historic building and local artwork gives a relaxing and homey feel. My favorite dish is the salmon and my husband always orders steak. Highly recommend!

I love eating at the Selkirk Grille and I will miss it during the next few weeks of restrictions. I have always liked the food but on Friday the fish and chips were really disappointing. Too many chips and not warm enough and the fish was very dry. I was quite surprised. Not up to the usual level. Carol Rose
