I went through the drive thru got my meal. Burger was luke warm and fries were cold. I called and spoke to the manager. She apologized and said she would send me a coupon for another meal. It's been 6 weeks still haven't received it!!!!

This is my 3rd trip and terrible food experience at McDonald's in Bowmanville. I didn't even know you could go to a "bad" McDonald's. Shouldn't they have the same quality standards as all McDonald's restaurants? Well they don't. Did the drive through at 2pm. Ordered a small fry. The fries were so hard and old. Also ordered a choc cupcake... More

Probably the worse thing about McDs is the reoccurring " Hi we are just waiting on a fresh pot please pull ahead" in the drive through. I now ask for money back and dont pull ahead. If I had time to wait after waiting in the drive-through i would have walked in!

I was there yesterday and just ordered a coke. I waited 5 minutes for someone to give me a cup. Finally I went to the cashier and asked for a cup and she handed me one. This new system of theirs is not good. People behind me were getting meals ahead of me. People filling orders seem to be very... More

As all McDonald's this location put in the new self serve computers. No room at all to move around, if you like to order the traditional way good luck. As McDonald goes the food is all the same. Bad move.

There is always a problem at this location. Majority of it being incorrect order or rude staff. I have asked to speak to the manager and without saying the words told me that the staff are fine and that it must be me. I have written two letters and never heard anything back. Who even writes letters? I did, because... More

Management needs to change at this location as well as the second location in the walmart across the street, owned by the same people. This is one of the only locations that have to park people constantly. They never seem to be ready for service during the evening and morning rush at times. The fries and hash browns have a... More

That day, we were two seniors, a mother and small child, and a baby in a stroller. A warm summer's day, lunchtime, and we rolled-in just adding to the chaos inside. The place was swarming with customers: mostly families with children. Part of the problem is the interior design of this restaurant, where traffic seems to have to constantly cross... More
