Adam Sandler dines in Guelph restaurant while filming new movie

Adam Sandler is causing quite the stir in the Royal City, with several Guelphites catching a glimpse of the funny man over the weekend.

The movie star is in the area for a few days filming and producing his newest Netflix project You Are SO Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah!

The staff at Milestones Restaurant in Guelph were star struck when Sandler came in for a bite to eat on Sunday night.

“She [a Milestone’s worker] came running to the back, with a red face and shaking, she just kind of looked at me and went “don’t freak out, Adam Sandler is here, Adam Sandler is here, nobody say anything, just have a normal time with this ,” said Brad Clarke, manager at Milestones Guelph. ‘I was like okay, let me actually see if this is real.’

Clarke is among many business owners and locals who said Sandler was a pleasure to meet and one of the nicest celebrities they have ever met.

“It was life-changing. He was honestly one of the nicest celebrities I have ever met, let alone a normal person,” said Grace Van Hemmen, Milestones Guelph Server.

Staff at the restaurant said they worked to treat Sandler like any other customer, except for when they tried to take a selfie.

“He was just an absolute beautiful gentleman,” said Clarke.

“Thank you so much Adam for choosing us, and I am glad he enjoyed his meals here as well,” said Clarke.

Crews are set up at the Elora Quarry and expected to be there filming tomorrow.

The film is slated to wrap up in mid-August.
