This diner is set back in the 50s but everything is totally up to date. Some of the booths have jute boxes, not sure they work butttt. Wednesday was discounted for first responders, thanks. I had the cabbage rolls and they were great. Great atmosphere and staff were great. We had a great lady, Heather. She was wonderful and courteous.... More

I've been going to this restaurant since it opened. It has never been a favourite but it was decent food; nothing exciting but regular diner food. I recently visited and I think I'm done with this place. I went with a family member and we both got the hot dogs. I got the Whistle dog which has cheese and bacon... More

Old time feel, complete with a jukebox and outfits for the staff! Had a double cheeseburger platter and couldn't fit my mouth around the burger. Great tasting food!

This restaurant is a 1950's themed one with open concept. If you don't mind eating next to strangers then this is fine for you. The food is burgers and fries type food.

Finally decided to try it and we thought it was pretty good. I expected a bar atmosphere and was pleasantly surprised at the 1950's diner theme. My husband like his hot turkey sandwich and my chicken burger was good ...next time I'd go with the hot turkey. The desserts looked so good , maybe next time. Good food for cheap... More

Visited this location for lunch, first time back in more then 3 years and was happy to see the quality of the food, cleanliness of the washrooms and overall cleanliness of the restaurant had not changed. We had the Canadian hot dog and Tuna Melt and both were excellent. This is definitely a revisit when in the area.

We wanted to go somewhere to have traditional food. This place was recommended. This place has the 60's decor with the jukeboxes and music selection at some booths. The food was served hot and tasty. The servers were friendly. This is a place to go in jeans or more relaxed attire. It is about as far as you can get... More

There are lots of choices at the True North Diner. I went for the grilled haddock. It was tender and moist but sadly, lacking in flavour. My french fries seemed to be re-heated. The rest of my group enjoyed their meals, and our server was very attentive and friendly. It wasn't my best meal, but I would return.

If you want a unique diner experience that includes live music (albeit karaoke) then this is the place for you. The seating is comfy, the atmosphere typical 50's and the staff are warm and friendly. The menu is extensive and the food very fresh and tasy
