The location is so great in the beautiful town of Kingsville. The ambience was great. It is a beautiful bulding, a lot of nice wood inside that if so cosy. The food was great.. their onions soup could have more cheese. I place I will go back..Also, so easy to reserve on line.

Outstanding food. Wonderful atmosphere. For such a small restaurant it was very difficult to find our waiter. He was not very attentive. I believe he lied about the wine he served my wife. We asked but didn't push the issue. I'll just say some people can tell the difference between Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio.

Food was excellent (we split a seasonal pasta and the perch sammy). Also, could not resist the apple fritter desert. To die for. Waitress was awesome and my friend and I spent time speaking to the owner. She was making christmas baskets. We purchased 2 baskets and some other goodies. We are so pleased with the whole experience. We did not feel rushed. Again, food was excellent. Will be recommending it to friends and family.

Another fabulous meal!!!! I could not pass up on the filet with peppercorn sauce...absolutely delicious! THree of us had the steak, and we were all thrilled! Two people in our group had the perch and pickerel....they were pleased too! OUr adventurous friend had the roasted parsnip and garlic soup with Parmesan as well as the stuffed sole entree...and was very pleased. We enjoyed our meal. Service was not as attentive as usual, as the server had a number of large tables.

It was the first time we had been there and it was the entertainment book that brought us there. We will definitely be back. Service and food excellent. Our waiter gave us a little history on the building. Came home and googled and got more info. Very interesting.

Lovely restaurant in historic train station / welcomed promptly upon arrival and table prepared as reserved / waitress was very friendly and helpful with selections / soup was delicious / shared a salad appetizer which was plenty for both / our main courses were delicious and prepared as requested / both had leftovers and no room for dessert / we were both pleased with the presentation of our dishes but also the care to detail of the spices & preparation / everything was very tasty and appropriately seasoned. We will definitely recommend to friends. All patrons appeared to be enjoying their time as well.

The food was excellent right from appetizers all the way to dessert. Wine options were great and loved the Oxley Chardonnay. Even the coffee was excellent. On occasion the waitress made us feel rushed, which since we were out celebrating we didn't want to be rushed and with a 7:00 p.m. seating not sure why she was wanting us to eat and go! Other tables were available. So that is my only criticism, the food was wonderful and for that reason we will make the drive out again from Windsor.

Really enjoyed our food--as always. Service was outstanding. Did not order dessert but waitress still brought us something as we were celebrating a birthday. Loved the calamari and perch--salad was fresh. Seated at my favourite table.

The food was good, tasty. The Ambiance is good, the restaurant is very nice. I read thru the reviews prior to selecting and booking the restaurant. But I have to say, it was a disappointing experience due to the service. The waitress was not professional, not responding well in terms of active and proactive, you had to ask for the services, and not very friendly.Hope the company can provide more trainings to their employees, and improve moving forward.

We love Mattawas and it is our go-to restaurant coming from Amherstburg. However, I have to say, this recent experience left us questioning whether we'll bother to make the drive again for dinner. Firstly, our guest's cutlery was dirty (food on spoon), there was no cruet on the table and had to ask for same, the server didn't know what the veg of the day was and failed on 2 attempts to tell us, we were not asked if we'd like more wine/water and had to ask for bread. My main course was not as advertised and instead was served with the mashed potatoes served with the steak entree. The menu read, black rice and lentils with the fish entree. We arrived at 6:30 only to be seated behind a family with a screaming infant (maybe 7 months old) which is not conducive to dining. I'm sorry but I don't want to have to put up with all of the above at your price point. although the food is very good, I think we'll limit our visits to lunch when in Kingsville and sit outside if weather permits.

Nice location, the building is worth the trip in itself. The food was good, but it was more pub style offerings on the menu than we expected, albeit high quality pub food with an italian twist. Good local beers on tap and local wines on offering.

We were visiting Kingsville for the weekend and decided on Mettawas Station after several good recommendations. We sat outside on the front patio which was very nice on a hot summer evening. We started with the Sicilian Arancini and two generous glasses of sangria. For mains, I opted for the Spaghetti And Meatballs and the BF went for the New York Strip Steak. Both meals were delicious, and tasted like home cooking (but in the best way). We finished off with the "Cheesecake of the Month" and Tiramisu. Both were lovely. It was a great meal and we would definitely recommend it if you are in the area!

We were greeted like they knew us. Had a lovely table. Had a knowledgeable and friendly waitress. She explained all that we wanted to know about the menu and best of all the food was great.
It was an extremely hot evening and the restaurant air conditioning could not keep out the heat but this was explained to us and we were offered patio seating which we did use for dessert and it was lovely out there as well. Will be going back with friends again for sure. :)

I took my mom there for a special dinner. The food was amazing and it was good price for the quantity and quality. Amazing wine list, beer on tap and service. We got to sit outside, enjoying the beautiful weather and company. We can't wait to go back and both know what we'll be ordering next!

Not only was our server very efficient but very accomodating. , we have never been disappointed eating at this restaurant. We usually eat indoors but we ate on the patio this time. the seating could be a little more comfortable but being outside having cushions to bring in and out would be asking a lot of the staff I would assume. The restaurant's ambiance being a restored train depot in itself is worth the drive from Amherstburg. The food as always didn't disappoint, the food was very tasty, the appetizer portions were a little too big as I could not finish 1/2 of my main course , but then I got to enjoy that the next day.
I would prefer a different draught beer selection but that's to each other's own taste. The wine selection like usual was very good and priced reasonably .... We will definitely return.

Found Mettawas Station Restaurant when I googled restaurants in Leamington area. The restaurant itself is in Kingsville, just a short drive away located among neighbourhood houses. Casual seating and warm atmosphere. Quality of food was great, very fresh ingredients and variety of choices on the menu. Our lamb appetizer was quite good and spicy which my husband loved. Big portions, couldn't finish all of my meal. Staff very friendly and attentive. If you are visiting Pelee Island then make this a stop on your visit you won't be disappointed.

We love Mettawas but our Sunday visit the big table behind us was way too noisy for us. They were having a good time but we couldn't hear ourselves think let alone talk. Should have seated us outside or in a different spot. Also, we have always had great food, never a complaint. This time however we had a problem. There were four of us. My daughter-in-law and I had the Lobster Ravioli with extra garlic. When our orders came, Hers had usual amount of the wonderful cheese sauce - mine had pretty much none. As they were likely Made together , when it was prepared - the chef put most in the other dish and mine kind of dry. No care was taken. I sent it back and he made a quick thin cheese sauce and brought it back. Was ok but not the same. No effort made to compensate either. Everyone was almost done eating when I got my order back. The waitress was great not her fault. Anyway, One of my fav meals at your place was ruined. Swierina Stratford
