A local shop owner recommended this diner to us. The menu was a good blend of home cooking and healthy choices. My partner chose the Smothered Bull, an open face burger with garlic mashed potatoes and gravy. He was in burger heaven! I went with...the homemade chili. It was a large bowl with the right amount of 'kick'. There was a wide range of beer selections to go with our meal. My partner had the ‘M-43’ from Old Nation Brewery - 2 thumbs up! The big surprise was the pie! We decided to split a piece of blueberry pie ala mode. It was EXCELLENT! The best we've ever had - and we eat a lot of pie! We 're already thinking about when we can go back to try another kind!More

The waitstaff was extremely friendly and helpful and they had a takeout window for Covid restrictions. We really enjoyed the fish and chips, but the sandwiches we ordered were just ok, and the chips were stale. I was really disappointed to see the kitchen staff...without masks as well.More

Toonies has a nice variety of choices, from sandwiches, salads to entrees. Meat, fish, and vegetarian options. Also good for those who want healthy options. I got beef vegetable soup plus one of their salads, both were delicious. My dining partners all got the Wednesday...dinner rib special, which they all enjoyed. Highly recommend.More

We picked up 2 of Toonie’s Wednesday night Rib specials last night and they were so GOOD! Falling off the bone tender, perfect sauce, crispy fries and yummy coleslaw - fantastic!!!

We visited here for lunch because many places didn’t open until later in the day. The menu looked good but since it was lunchtime I opted for a steak sandwich and was under impressed with the size of it. Waitress was attentive.

Had dinner here for the first time with friends and family. Menu has both entrees and sandwiches and salads. Full bar and many craft beer choices. I don’t believe they take reservations but we had no trouble getting a table when we arrived. Two of...us ordered the prime rib dinner special ($21.95) that included two sides and a loaf of fresh baked bread. One tried the hot beef sandwich that looked delicious and came with mashed potatoes and was smothered in gravy. Another tried the chicken Caesar salad (that needed more dressing). Two tried soup and both said it was very tasty. Waitress was attentive but did not hover or rush us. My only complaint was that each of the prime rib dinners came with a loaf of the bread but only one loaf was delivered to our table. When we asked for another loaf we were surprised to see we were charged for it!!More

Breakfast was pretty good. I ordered biscuits and gravy. Gravy had a different taste from what I’m used to, but it was very tasty. Wife ordered a ham omelet and thought it was tasty. Waitress was excellent!! Waitress actually put some faith back into Bellaire...hospitality. The waitress from a previous restaurant the day before and the receptionist at the local resort were very rude. I would go back and eat here again. I wouldn’t mind trying lunch or dinner.More

Worst rib eye I ever had. Too tough to chew, under cooked, sent it back, came back microwaved and still under cooked. Service was fine, french fries were great, steak sucked balls.

One of the few remaining which combines great food and great service. The atmosphere is OK, but don't go for that. Go for the food! A cool horseshoe bar and old photos of the lake complete the visit. Try the salmon or the ribeye. Great...salad, great crusty bread. We're local and we love it.More
