Amazing food, service cleanliness and ambience. The owners Amy and Mike bend over backwards to accomodate...and we brought 34 people with us on a bus. Very generous portions, homemade, all of it! The salad bar is deluxe...we singularly go often. Always the same and such happy and efficient staff. Best horseradish found anywhere...meats you can cut with a fork! All you can eat, great price. Accessible washrooms. Just a wonderfully relaxing place to go BUT must call for reservations as very popular...always busy...don't take a chance and be disappointed... reserve ahead of time. We give them 5 stars!!

Sharon Robinson on 06-Aug-23
We were out to Chubbys once again last night - and again were not disappointed ! I think it’s my husband‘s favourite restaurant! Lots to eat and delicious! The best roast beef - gravy and mash potatoes- so very delicious Lovely salad bar - my favourite is the green pea with peanuts! I have never had this any other place! You will not be disappointed- if you dine here!

Brian Hicks on 21-Jun-23
Three times we have enjoyed an absolute feast of a meal. If you crave a old fashioned country buffet then this is the place to go. It’s a buffet so don’t expect a menu, the one main protein is roast beef with the second choice alternating weekly. A smorgasbord of salads and a enticing array of deserts will have you leaving full and perhaps contemplating a return visit. After three visits, this is now our go to for a nice meal always served by the owners who take great pride in their efforts! Well worth the visit! Recommended dishes Roast Beef Dinner

Brian on 14-Dec-22
A great place to go if you’re craving an old fashioned country buffet. Always, two protein mains, one of which is roast beef, a smorgasbord of fresh salads and made in house desserts will have you leaving satisfied that you have just experienced one of the best country buffet meals to be had anywhere! Three visits and this locale is now our favourite go to restaurant for some country comfort food. Amy and Mike, keep doing what your doing, your efforts are well appreciated.

Diane Varty on 06-Nov-22
best food in the country great service,have enjoyed 2 wonderful meals and going for our 3rd at Christmas.

Dave on 15-Aug-22
Sat Aug-13, I was instructed by some friends who went here a week ago that this was the place to go for a great meal. I called up some friends from Trenton at 3;30pm and asked them to go with me for the 5;30 sitting. It was well worth the short drive,I met Amy and Mike on arrival. I had been by the place numerous times in the last 9 years but it was daytime and they were always closed. The beef and ribs were terrific, able to cut the beef with a fork. Numerous delicious salads to go with the main meal, and the coconut cream pie was to die for. Thanks very much to the friendly wait staff and owners we (my friends) and I will be returning soon Dave

Avery Smart on 14-Jun-22
We were introduced to this hidden gem by some really good family friends (shoutout Lynda & AL) who have been going to this restaurant for decades. The atmosphere the second you walk in could be described as inviting and warm. The roast beef & ribs that were served were delicious and that special lobster soup was to die for. In fact, I had to have two servings it was that great and I am not a soup person at all. The owners Mike & Amy are awesome and the service is top notch. We experienced first hand why Chubby's creates such raving fans.

Ceejay on 01-Nov-21
My fiancé and I visited this place, over the Halloween weekend. I must say I do recommend this place and will be back to eat here again. The food was great and the drinks were top notch. Like I love it. Remind me of back home in Barbados. Definitely my spot when I’m back in Toronto. One love to the family there!

Kim and Maureen on 25-Sep-21
Last night was our first but not last visit to Chubby's Restaurant in Hoards Station. The owners Mike and Amy met us when we arrived to scan our vaccine certificates as required by government rules and the whole process was painless. A hint for for you if you are going to attend take the time to print a hard copy so it is so much easier for the people who have to check them. The food was excellent and it is endless, started with soup, salads main course last night was black Angus Beef and honey garlic ribs, followed by coconut cream pie, a few coffees throughout the meal. I grew up in my fathers restaurant and this was an excellent venue for us.. It is about a forty minute drive from Belleville so closer for Trenton, Stirling. Campbellford etc. Reservations are required and they are only open on Friday Saturday and Sunday nights for two sittings one at 5 pm and one at 6 30 PM. so take yourself out for a nice evening to an amazing restaurant you will not be disappointed.

Great dinner This is a great place to go for a weekend dinner with friends and family or just you two. The food is always great with home cooked flavours and filling portions. Staff are friendly and responsive. Excellent choice and quality.

Brock Reesor on 21-Nov-20
I'm a trucker who has been to almost every diner from Wilmington Beach NC to San Diego CA. And this is among the best food, best service and cleanest place I've been to. You owe it to yourself to stop in and enjoy the great food and atmosphere

Rob on 12-Sep-20
We have been to Chubby's at least six times in the last couple years. We are never disappointed in the service or the food. This is a great restaurant to go to.

Tim Lisle on 03-Jun-20

Dave F on 10-Apr-19
The service was great, the food was second to none, and the price is more than fair!!! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. The family who runs the restaurant are very humble and friendly, we just love it. This was our third visit, and they have been very consistent with their excellent menue!

Bob Moore on 10-Jun-18
Yesterday was the second time we went to Chubby's with our group of about 20 people. Once again, the food was wonderful: lots of salads to choose from, soup, roast beef, ribs, potatoes and veggies were delicious. And the assortment of desserts....been a long time since I have enjoyed REAL banana cream pie, with slices of real banana even. The service was great, helpful waitresses always on the go, keeping water glasses and coffee/tea cups full and used plates off the table. Even their well water tastes great.You have to eat here ! Looking forward to taking the family to Chubby's.

Brenda on 24-Jul-16
It is a excellent family restaurant. Went for the first time and will definitely going back. The homemade soup, variety of salads and roastbeef. All delicious. The desserts and variety of pies are to die for. Highly recommend it. I guarantee you won't be leaving hungry????

The Brownson family on 18-Jul-16

Nancy Johnston on 02-Jan-16
Once again we can't thank you folks enough for such a lovely time and delicious meal. Your servers were prompt as usual and it is a toss up as to which is the best the salad bar, the roast beef and chicken or the desserts. You have outdone yourselves again. Our 4th year in a row for New Years should tell you what a great job you are doing.

Beverley Henricks on 30-May-15
I had the pleasure of dining at Chubby's again tonight and the food and service are fantastic. Liz you make the best desserts I have every had. The roast beef was so tender you could cut it with a fork. Thanks for a wonderful meal

Nancy Johnston on 01-Jan-15
This was our 3rd New Years dinner at Chubby's and it is still an amazing meal out. The food is sooo good and the friendliness of the staff and owners just adds to the experience. Thank you once again for the great cooking and service.

Linda and Jon on 17-Dec-14
We had a wonderful family birthday celebration on December 7th. Food was amazing and the location perfect for family coming from Peterborough and Napanee. Staff were like part of the family before we left. Would love the recipe for the cherry jello salad yum yum!

Douglas K Vanderwater on 26-Oct-14
A great restaurant with a very well designed buffet with soup, salads and classical roast beef and other main dishes. The desserts are just to die for and the people operating the restaurant are just great. We are regular Sunday afternoon customers and enjoy the drive from Belleville to Chubbys! We never have had a bad experience eating at Chubbys but always have used their reservation service.

Peter on 18-Jul-14
I love this place! The food is fresh and of very nice quality with decent portion sizes, and there is lots to choose from. It's a really 'down home: atmosphere, very relaxed, very charming.

We had an excellant New Year's Eve dinner tonight at Chubby's. Roast beef and mashed potatoes or Virginia ham and scalloped potatoes along with all kinds of salads and desserts. It doesn't get any better than this. Thank you for another great meal.

Pamela Bryce on 19-Nov-12
Looking forward to going to Chubby`s this weekend for my Birthday and sharing this special time with my family. In August this year we celebrated my brother`s 50th Birthday and being my first time visiting Chubby`s, I was totally amazed by the selection of food offered, generous portions of homemade desert.They made my brother feel special and my whole family was impressed and eager to go back,sooo! excited about sharing my special day at Chubby`s Restaurant.See u there:)

Liz on 09-Aug-11
Hi everyone! Thank-you so much for your lovely emails. It is wonderful to see that we are doing our job by keeping our wonderful customers happy.

Liz

Gerry & Pat Stedman on 23-May-11
We had dinner there on Saturday May 21/11. The food was excellent and also the service. It's well worth the drive to Hoard's Station.

Brenda MacLellan on 13-May-11
I have had many memorable family get togethers at your establishment, Including mine and my brothers birthday celebration that we always had close together. He has been gone almost 2 years now, and yet I plan to spend yet another birthday there, since he enjoyed it so much. The food is so great, and the atmosphere is so inviting.Thanks for the memories.

Carie Mason on 17-Apr-11
Just made reservations for next weekend at Chubbys. We have certainly missed going there over the winter. It always feels like going home! The fact that the food is excellent goes without saying....we always feel like we are going to visit friends for dinner! See you Saturday. (Craving the lemon pie already)

J Moore on 13-Aug-10
The best!!!!! Best food, best service and best variety for the best price. Have had an excellent meal every time and we have been going there for many years!

Liz ,owner of chubbys on 23-Jul-10

Jesse & Shannon Byrne on 07-Jun-10
My wife and I have been going to Chubby's while at the cottage with Family & Friends for the last 6-7 years. The food is to die for and the service is excellent. This coming weekend after the drive from Oshawa I look forward to another great meal at Chubby's!

Bernice & Bert den Hartog on 07-Feb-10
Since we found Chubby's it's been our regular place to go. Excellent homemade food and desserts to die for.No other restaurant can compare in the area as far as we're concerned.Waiting patiently for them to open again in March.

R and S Garrison on 24-Nov-09
Four of us had dinner at your place last Friday nite and it was delicious, of course we ate too much, and there was more we wanted to taste, but alas our tummies would hold just so much, The other couple with us were impressed as it was their first time there and we shall be back. Thank you

Bil Belnap on 20-Nov-09
Our monthly 'Dinner Out Group' has chosen to visit Chubby's for our season ending dining experience. This will be our fifth visit. Looking forward to the 'Taste of Heaven' dessert after almost filling up on the meat and potatoes and fresh salad. Always a great choice going to Chubby's. (I just can't stay away from the Horseradish) See you soon Bil (RONA D.O.G.)
