Plaza Restaurant

The Plaza is One of Kenora's iconic restaurants and has been serving Kenora & the Lake of the Woods Area for over 50 years! It was voted "Ontario's Top Ten" Greek Restaurants by Trip Advisor! To not order "touchless" take out or delivery would truly be a Greek tragedy. But hey, not a fan of Greek food? The Plaza also offers Kenora classics, pastas, steaks and fresh Lake of the Woods walleye!

Guidelines: The Plaza pivoted to "touchless" delivery & takeout on March 20, 2020. To order all you have to do is call the Plaza. Staff will walk you through the process of payments over the phone (e-transfers, Visa or Mastercard Only) & our automatic gratuity policy of 10-15%, (which you, the customer, will decide on). Note the auto-grat is split with staff members who work that shift (delivery drivers, phone people, cooks and dishwasher). There is a $5.00 delivery charge which goes directly to the driver for gas and the wear & tear of their vehicle. Our driver will call you to let you know they are about to place your food on the doorstep and will watch from a distance to see you grab it. For pickups, you call when you're outside and we bring out the food to your vehicle! Plaza staff will be wearing masks!
