Overall Guide : Sarnia has the worst restaurants I have ever seen. Even the new ones are just awful. Limbo has only high chairs (I outgrew those when I was four years old) making it very uncomfortable for those of us who have... more sore knees. Everything is geared for the very young in this town. There are no bicycle lanes making it terribly dangerous to ride a bike. We moved here from Montreal two years ago and we love our apt. on Sandy Lane. We love the lake and that is what keeps us here. We like the Imperial Theatre and after enjoying a great evening there, we sometimes would like to stop at one of the bars for a drink but we don't because we don't drink and drive. We can't leave our car on the street overnight if we take a cab home because it's against the law.
Not to be missed lake

Overall Guide : Sarnia is 70% wonderful. Our parks are great. The waterfront is cold in Winter but lovely and well cared for in Summer. People are generally friendly and helpful and our Mayor is a real visible person who takes his job... more seriously. Transit is inadequate for a lot of Sarnians. Shopping is not the best and for friends from out of town getting here can be a challenge.

Overall Guide : I love Sarnia. Especially the waterfront, and the area under the bridge. We have specialty shops on Front Street, Canatara Park for special events, and just spending the day. We have biking trails away from traffic (Bluewater Trails), and lots... more more to see and do.

Overall Guide : I agree with Judy LeBlonde, but if you are interested to go out for a pleasant evening without high chairs and loud music try out MAISON ST-AUBIN on Murphy and Lakeshore. What a pleasurable evening we had. It is vermuch... more like Montreal. Exeptional Food perfect service and wonderful music. We are making a point of having an elegand dinner once a month.
