Contemporary American
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.

This is not the Linwoods from years past. The food was bland, our appetizer was actually cold. The dinning room was brightly lit for a 7:30pm dinner reservation but when the majority of your clientele are over the age of 70 I guess you have to accommodate them. I assume that would be the reason for the change in the food as well. Our server was amazing......that would be the only positive from the evening.

We were given a table in a side area, with the excuse that the restaurant was busy. We made a reservation and should have been told this was not a restaurant table. Other then this our experience was overall very good

Although we’ve dined at Linwood’s many times over several decades last night’s dinner was one of the absolute bests! It was my birthday so I felt festive which was a delicious break from working the front lines at Good Samaritan Hospital in what I call Covid Immersion.
We’ll be back soon for more outstanding meals🥳

I should have made better choices due to to me coming into the restaurant after 8:30pm I started with crab soup that was horrible it tasted like water with crab meat at the bottom. I ordered Ribeye that came out Cold and wasn’t cook medium well. I never complained I paid my bill left Holly a $35.00 tip and left.

Given Covid we knew this was a place we could eat comfortably as we asked to be sat on their event side which had no parties that evening. They have also worked hard to upgrade their airflow and also all served were masked (I think wearing kn95 masks). Food as always was delicious!!!!
