So creative, and so deliscious we will definately be making this place a regular stop on our way up to North Bay. Atmosphere and service are just as good as the food. Thank you for a great dinner experience. It was exactly what we were looking for to celebrate our 25th Anniversary

Food is wonderful in a quaint setting. The staff was very friendly and polite. Lovely atmosphere and close to the waterfront so an after dinner walk may top the night off. Very enjoyable evening!

The ambiance was great. We wanted to visit with our friends and did not feel rushed at any time. The food was VERY good. I had the tomato soup which, we all decided, was THE BEST EVER. I have a nut allergy and the staff were extremely helpful.
