We did a lunch at this fine restaurant and we weren't disappointed. The staff were very professional, courteous and typical of a fine dining experience. Food was great. It is a bit expensive but well worth it. I will be trying the Dinner in the near future.

We have heard great reviews on this restaurant before and now have finally visited with another couple who were here previously. The food and service met our expectations Everybody enjoyed our meals and for me the prime rib was perfect and delicious. The portions were more than generous and the service top notch.

This is a good choice if you want a unique location: like the name says, an old school house. The food is tasty, the portions big. Extensive menu, with some Greek specialties. They have a very good buffet on Sundays. Definitely recommended for get-togethers and group celebrations in a special setting.

The very best and most relaxing meals you can have! The owner Gus is very friendly and makes sure everything is is to your satisfaction. The waiters are very attentive but do not bug you every five seconds all in all a very pleasant experience!

My sister and husband had been here before and when the time came for a centrally located place in Southwestern Ontario for a special family occasion, the Olde School came to mind. We arranged a private room for a party of 12 and enjoyed the charm and privacy with excellent service from Lenny. The atmosphere is very unique and enjoyable... More

If you want to be treated with the best Waite staff this is the place to go. Steak and prime rib cooked to perfection and seasoned nicely. Decor is dated but goes well with the one room schoolhouse it used to be. The queen has even dined at The Olde Schoolhouse. Picture hanging around some of which are from when... More

It is an amazing place for a romantic dinner. Not big portions and pricey but excellent food and a great evening out for a special occasion. They have a great Sunday brunch as well for a special occasion with the family or just you and a friend or partner for a late Sunday meal

Our meal was good for most of us. Two of our party had seafood pasta and were ill the next day. Everyone else was good but we all had steak, prime rib or chicken. We were there with a bunch and the waiter totally messed up our bills. He did a good job otherwise. Nice vintage ambiance. They did not... More
