Tatlows Broiler Bar is a tiny restaurant in East Gwillimbury on Queensville Side Road. Here are five reasons why East Gwillimbury diners (and those from further afield in York Region) are flocking to Tatlows.
1.The Surprise Factor
Everyone loves a sleeper story. A hidden gem. So far hidden in the interior of the River Drive Park/ Holland Landing Area of East Gwillimbury, this restaurant is a bit of a “surprise.”
All the people who work at Tatlows Broiler Bar are really, really kind. Genuine. One waitress was out of breath as she had just rushed out to hand a customer an item they had left behind before they pulled out of the parking lot. One client was concerned that she would miss a business appointment. The server tried to reassure her. Another waitress pulled out all the stops talking to our kids, making them laugh. The servers who work at Tatlows want their customers to have a good experience.
3. the Food
The food is tasty. The hamburger had a “wowness” to it.
So did the flaming vegetable hash. Kids meals have Special Touches to them in the Presentation.
4. the Feel
Something about the red walls makes you feel good when you walk in. Cozy, a bit urbane. The wall hangings are fun to look at – cute horses, historic Canadiana, trees….different.
Tatlows has fans. The restaurant inspires fierce loyalty.
