Pretty Poor Dininng Experience for...

Took the family there for dinner earlier this week, we walked in the door and were told there would be a 15 minute wait. Fine, we agreed...took about 25 minutes to be seated, another 7-8 minutes for someone to come over and take drink and food orders. Took 45 minutes for food to arrive (Simple dishes - Popcorn Shrimp x 2, Admiral's Feast, Walt's Trio). Food arrived and cooked scallops and clam strips were stone cold and had to be sent back, had to ask three different people for vinegar...was somewhat redeemed by manager coming over and offering two free deserts (which we chose to have to go as we'd already been there almost two hours with wait and food times). Arrived just before 6 thinking we could have a good meal, ended up being there way too long and got home past kids bedtime. Certainly not worth the price paid for the quality of food and service received. Will surely take our dining out experience somewhere else next time...

Great Little Auto Dealership

Back in 2008 I purchased a 2006 Hyundai Accent from them. They advised me at the time that it had been in a front end collision and repaired. I bought the car knowing this. Here I am 6 years later with the same vehicle and just about to cross the 250K mark on it. I have had very few large bills on the car and am extremely satisfied with the quality of the vehicle they sold me. The car is on it's last legs and once it finally dies I'll be making the trip back to Wrights for my next vehicle.

I do have two minor negative items, the first was that there was a chip on the car that I asked to be covered. They couldn't do it as the paint stick was on back order. I was told that they'd deliver the stick to my house as someone lived nearby. I ended up having to go and buy one as it never turned up. The second was that because the vehicle had been in a front end collision, the hood hadn't been fitted entirely properly. This led over time to rusting due to road...

Poor Service

Workmanship is poor, last Summer we were stuck with an overheating car while visiting family. Paid for work that they claimed they did when in fact work wasn't done properly. Had to take car to another mechanic to get not only the original problem fixed, but also to repair the damage they did to my car. They were very friendly, but would not recommend to anyone.

Great School!!!!

My kids attend Lawfield, such a great school! The teachers they have had so far have all been excellent and the added technology aspect has really helped them learn. The only negative thing I would have to say is that the Library is very disorganized and poorly run, the librarian doesn't seem to keep track of books very well and as a result the quality has diminshed. Apart from the all aspects of learning have excelled beyond our expectations since we registered our children.

Pretty Bad...

Tried the place for the first time last night, got a combo with Pizza, Wings and Gyro...Wings were either really small or really large and were all broken bones inside. Got the feelnig that they were the leftovers or discounted product. Pizza was ok, but actually tasted better the next day. Gyro was ordered with our combo...it came on a bun?! First time I've had a Gyro that didn't come on a flatbread. Overall, not worth the money. We're used to Gage Pizza and Wings and will probably stick with them in the future, it's a few bucks move but the quality is much higher.

Competent Mechanics, but somtimes too...

Master Mechanic in Hamilton is great, Gord and his team are always excellent at diagnosing problems and making sure that you feel comfortable with the work they are doing. They will take the time to show you worn parts or exactly why something failed. A lot better than most chain/franchise mechanics out there. The only negative thing I have to say is that they appear to have a flat labor charge attached to certain jobs so it can get fairly costly. On occasions I know the work has been completed in under two hours, but have been charged 3 hours plus diagnostics time...They are reliable for major malfunction repairs as an alternate to the dealer but for minor fixes you could probably find somewhere cheaper.

Kids Birthday Party - Good Party -...

My son wanted to have his Birthday Party at Splitsville Entertainment. First the booking, you HAVE to confirm numbers before a certain date or else you are locked in to pay the amount for people you originally listed. I called a day before deadline to tell them that one less person would be coming, was told that someone would call me the next day to confirm (which was the Deadline) - Nobody called...called the next day and was told that I was a day late in confirming and I would be charged the full amount. After some back and forth they did agree to amend the amount of people coming and drop the charge down accordingly. Now let me start by saying that they tag on a 15% gratuity which you pay UP FRONT before you get service. The service we received at the party was hardly deserving of this amount. For starters, the contract stated one hour of bowling starting at 1:15pm - This isn't the case and is false advertising. They shut our lanes down at 2pm so that they could...

Please note that in November 2011 Splitsville underwent a overhaul in staff and management. Gone are the days of upset customers and set in stone booking deadlines.

Well, they are not gone. We do aim for 100% satisfaction, but if we do drop the ball, we are always eager to fix the problem.

I sincerely hope you give us another try, so we can show you what we have been up to here.

Thanks!!

Don't waste your money....

Only one waitress serving, watched people sit and then walk out. Food came out unevenly. Some people got theirs then 10 minutes later others came out. No music AT ALL...you could hea a pin drop in there! Food was dry, overall a very bad dining experience. Location on Upper James far better than this one...
