Not sure what people expect. I suspect the negative ratings come from those who expect everything everywhere. Never had any problems here. Simple food at good prices.

Stopped in, I had breakfast, the kids had lunch. The menu stated 8oz ribeye with eggs, but turned out they didn't have any steak today. My daughter had poutine, bagged fries, but overall decent poutine. My son had a burger and fries, I had the farmers breakfast. Everyone left satisfied, very likely we will be back again.

Whether Chinese, Greek or Canadian dishes, the quality and quantity is quite acceptable. Low priced. Very friendly owner/servers aim to please. Clean and could use some remodelling, but certainly not a deal breaker. Don't be fooled by the appearance ...it's worth the time.

We used to come here all the time and so after over 4 years being away from Picton we returned to our favourite breakfast place...and realized it seems to have changed ownership...never seen the place so dead... All the reviews, which I checked after we arrived were horrible...I thought oh no! We came for breakfast after going to church. We... More

My family and I ordered take out/delivery and were very unhappy. The food had no taste? Not at all what we were expecting and it took forever to arrive. We had heard some good things and thought we would give it a try but yikes it was a very expensive plain rice meal...with salad.

We came here because we remembered this restaurant as a decent Greek place, but now it seems to be a mix Greek and Chinese. Still, three of us ordered from the Greek menu...and I think that was a mistake! The chicken "souvlaki" was made of large, poorly seasoned chicken cubes. It was more like a supermarket chicken brochette, without the... More

While dining out with a friend we thought we would try Family Island Restaurant. Bad idea. We went in the side entrance, past the bathroom, on into the dining area. Tiles on floors are cracked and broken. It looks like they have been glued down. Floors were dingy but the whole place is dingy because it is in need of... More

We are locals and if we go out for dinner we come here. Best Chinese food in town! My hubby ALWAYS gets the quesadilla meal. Comes with choice of salad AND fries. Huge millportion size! Soooooo good! And great price. We split this meal with a side of onion rings for lunch. Can't comment on the other food as we... More

Looking for a breakfast while visiting Picton, we decided to try this place. Right off, you wonder where you are? The menu is Chinese, but the decor if very Greek. What is going on? Our server was Chinese, and she seemed to be alone in the place, but I'm assuming someone was back in the kitchen cooking. Perhaps the cook... More

picked up take out. Food was not very good. couldn't eat it. Meat was poor quality (chicken). Sauces tasted like it was from a can from a grocery store. Rice also seemed grocery store-ish with frozen peas, soy sauce and a little chicken. Dissappointing
