Gus's restaurant has the very best pancakes in Picton and my grandson ordered ham with his and got a huge, delicious piece. The service is always super quick and the servers are very friendly. Actually all the food they serve is very good - the coconut cream pie is the best ever! I make a point of going there to... More

We had an excellent meal at Gus's Family Restaurant when we visited Picton. We discovered it the last evening we were there or we would have eaten there more often.

Don't waste your time going. Service is good but everything else is less than desirable. Food is not very good. Food is acceptable but certainly not fabulous. Would not go again.

My husband really wanted to try Gus's Family Restaurant. He is always looking for the next great burger and thought this may be the place...boy was he wrong! When we entered the restaurant it looked tired and in need of a good scrubbing but I kept an open mind. My husband sat down and I went to use the restroom.... More

I normally consider myself an understanding person and don't like to complain publicly about something but tonight I am making an exception. I am thoroughly disgusted by this local restaurant. Went for dinner with my husband, daughter and a friend. Server was great, funny and friendly. However my meal was another thing. I ordered the Club House and with it... More

Called whilst on a trip to the nearby cheese factory. Typical diner but prompt and friendly service with good serving portions. It is what it is - and is good at it.

Dropped in for breakfast. Simple menu not a lot of variety. Staff looked like part family, part friends that have been there for a long time. Definitely have regulars that come in for their daily regular. I ordered two eggs scrambled with home-fries and my husband had the omelette. We got through our meal - but it was more of... More

Reasonable priced diner. Service was prompt & friendly. It's obviously quite popular as the placed was filled up much during dinner on Sunday night. Food was decent. I would say it's value for money if you are up and about town with family.

Gus's Looks and feels the part but wasn't very friendly and dinner was substandard. Maybe we caught them on an off night.
