Customer's reviews..
Due to the web site not up dating hours of operation, and phone not being serviced, we drove down from Oakville for a patio meal to found out that that the restaurant is closed all Sunday 29 August due to a private event while the web site stated open till 4pm. The person at the restaurant said “sorry” and didn’t seem to care. There were others behind us that were disappointed. In the future, do up date the web site especially if you don’t respond to phone calls.
What an experience!!!!💗 I have never been to such a special restaurant before, and cannot recommend it highly enough!! Dispatch is a gem, in all that it offers and represents, it is hard to even know where to start. The food was incredible: the flavours were so complex, the ingredients so fresh, the attention to detail. We got to meet chef Gizem who was making the food that night, and she is just lovely and beyond talented and gifted at what she does. The drinks were so special and unique!!!! Again, the flavours were so complex, the ingredients so fresh, and the attention to detail!!! They were drinks to be sipped and savoured, they made you slow down and be mindful. I have never before experienced drinks like these, they were one of a kind! And desert!!!! Oh man, I'm salivating just thinking about it!!!! The people, they are lovely beyond lovely, and the word that just keeps coming up for me is special. Adam and Mike were so nice to speak to, they are so talented, passionate, and genuinely amazing people. This restaurant is so much more than just amazing food and staff, it supports the community, doing what they can to help others. How awesome is that!? And for a restaurant to still be doing whatever they can to spread goodness after enduring through a pandemic, which we are still enduring through the ripple effects. Dispatch is a living wage employer, being brave and doing something different from the majority of the industry, doing the right thing!!💗 In addition to the restaurant, they also have a beautiful store inside that sells gourmet food and drink items from around the world and creations made by Dispatch. They also had some really special items to support local and to support other businesses who are also doing what they can to make the world a better place. For example, Adam told us about these awesome t-shirts that support a local artist, Chance Mutuku, and these shirts have a great message! Or the amazing Mafia Tote Bags or Upcycled Market Tote Bags! The inside restaurant and the patio are lovely, the time and thought given to creating the space is so evident. The restaurant is aesthetically stunning, and the vibe of the restaurant is so comfortable!!!! It was the finest dining experience I have ever had, while also the most relaxed. Thank you guys for such a nice night out! Wish so much that we lived closer, but whenever we are anywhere near the St. Catharines area, we will 100% be coming in and so excited to come back:)

We had the Original Tony’s Steak & Cheese tonight and it was awesome. It’s a must try if you haven’t had it already.
Impressive fettuccini Alfredo dish! I love that the noodles are made right at the restaurant. I’ve ate pasta all over Europe and TJ’s is right up there in quality. Pasta is a must here!

Just left this particular location after a great experience. The gentleman running the grill tonight (sorry I didn't get your name!) raced out, into the rain I'll add, as I was getting in to my car to leave. He apologized profusely that I had been handed the wrong order, and invited me back inside to make sure I had the correct one.He didn't have to run out and grab me, didn't even have to correct the order; mistakes happen, after all. I was grateful, however, that I didn't get my order home before realizing that something I ordered was missing, or that I maybe received someone else's food.Not all fast food places are created equal, and the staff here are next level. Thanks kitchen dude, sorry again I didn't catch your name.
This location has hard workers and to my surprise seemed to be fully staffed when I was there. Small interior. But there is outside seating as well. Bathrooms are shared with the gas station, but you get the key from DQ.

I go here all the time, the staff are always super friendly and kind. Never had one bad experience. It gets crazy busy in the summer evenings and the wait can get pretty long, but I don’t mind; I know they’re trying their best to be quick.
Went in 15 mintues before closing and I had the best experience ever! Great service by everyone, very polite and nice! I took my time choosing two cakes and every question I had was answered!To top this off, big Thank You to Ashley!! She offered and helped take the cakes to the car which helped me out alot!!

Great Food, Great treats, Best customer service.
Very friendly staff, but they don't know how to use gift cards. I tried twice and had to dig into my savings meanwhile having a fat gift card in my pocket thanks to a generous uncle. Finally had to bring my gift card to the falls where the rang it in no problem.
