It all began with a love story and a dream. Linwood, a chef, and Ellen, a reporter, met 36 years ago in a restaurant of course! They married and began to envision that someday they would open a restaurant of their own. The restaurant’s first business plan was written at their dining room table on an electric typewriter. In 1988 Linwoods opened its doors, and it has been a labour of love for more than thirty years.

Linwoods’ cuisine consists of the freshest ingredients, and inventive preparation. Our service is warm and attentive. We have developed a reputation for consistency an attention to detail. These qualities are key to our catering business as well. Our team has worked hard to connect to our community, and we value our customers. These values have been central to Ellen and Linwood’s vision, and we hope are felt by our customers each day.

My husband and I went to Linwoods Restaurant last Saturday night to celebrate 17 years of our first date at that restaurant. Not only did they accommodate us with the same table that we sat in 17 years ago but everyone greeted us with best wishes! The food was absolutely delicious but the icing on the cake was our server, Ahme. He was so professional! He knew when to come over and he knew when to stay away. He was never intrusive but magically seemed to know when we had a question or was ready to order. Thank you Linwood for such a great night and having Ahme serve us - the best!

Crab soup was exceptional, Grilled tuna perfect (some choices along with it - crispy veg sushi roll and sliced jalapeno seemed pointless - frying the veg sushi makes it crisp, but then the flavors are gone, I don't see how sliced jalapenos go with tuna, but that's my opinion. I would rather have had some interesting pickled vegetables like turnip and eggplant etc or a few pieces of heirloom tomato to compliment the tuna better and go along with the sauce and others accompaniments that were great. But the tuna was as close as I've tasted to the one time I grilled tuna that had been caught a few hours before. The Greek salad was also very good and not too large (maybe a little more subtle on the vinegar). My companion was not as thrilled with the shrimp, scallops, tagliatelle, marinara dish, but I didn't see anything wrong with it except putting scallops and shrimp in a marinara sauce with pasta at that price, and then it's the fault of the customer because there are so many options that make sense. I'd save marinara sauces for cheaper dishes and not ruin excellent scallops and Shrimp with it, but again, if the customer wants it, that's what matters. Service is always flawless at Linwoods.

My husband and I returned to Linwoods for his birthday dinner after a 18 year absence from the area. We remembered it as a wonderful restaurant with fabulous food. Well, the current Linwoods did not disappoint! The outdoor seating was lovely. The food was delicious.They even surprised him with a birthday dessert! The owners have gone above and beyond to insure Covid safety and the comfort of their guests. Its a wonderful restaurant that I would recommend to anyone looking for a fabulous meal!

Very overpriced for the quality of the food. At a restaurant like this, I would think that everything should be impeccable from the service to the food. Our waitress was nice but inattentive and the runners who brought the food were rude when asked where something was that had been forgotten. The food itself was not impressive. My side veggies were bland and limp, the mushrooms had bits of dirt throughout, and the fried chicken was no better than Royal Farms. As for the others I was with, they got different fish entrees and both were lacking in flavor. There are many other restaurants at this price point that shine!

I was somewhat disappointed by the menu. I hadn't been there for a while but I seem to recall more choices in the past. I like crusty rolls but those were mostly crust.

The food we ordered was good, however, but not exceptional
