Great service. Restaurant was 80% full. Lots of chatter and laughs indicating everyone was enjoying their outing. Sitting on the deck overlooking the lake was a nice change of pace. Decor inside was warm, rustic and friendly. The turkey melt was a downer. Real turkey meat ....nope. Just a couple of slices of processed press-board - Fries were absolutely Fantastic.... More

Service was average , atmosphere was Good, food is average. Wings were overdone, Nachos were satisfactory. Lots of people here with lots of very loud children. Nice to sit on the deck overlooking the Lake

I had heard this place was good. So I was excited to try it. Walked in and there was some bad smell which more than a couple of us noticed by the door and quasi -gift shop... Bathroom? Don't know.. but not pleasant. It was Saturday afternoon, after the big rush, the main dining room was pretty empty.. the patio... More

Great service, plenty of tables, food comes quick, I had the cheese burger again which is always great. It was a nice sunny day and there was actually someone out water skiing in the lake which was nice to watch

You cannot beat the venue or the atmosphere it provides, a great view of Puslinch Lake, and the train moving around the ceiling is a great distraction for kids Food is good, even very good depending on the selection, I love that they fry the cheese! for the burgers But you are gonna pay a premium, priced as a 4...

OK, so the food is not gourmet or nouveau cuisine but who the heck wants that from a happy waterfront eatery where kids are welcome and the servers have a smile as bright as the sun. But if you are looking for a pleasant spot for a good sandwich at lunchtime or even a dinner, then likely you will be... More

I have to agree that the view is much better than the food!! Have been here a few times and the food is not very tasty! Don't know how people say they have great burgers, it was like a thick piece of meatloaf that was tasteless, no spices what-so-ever. We did go see a local band there recently and the... More

Five of us recently had dinner on a lovely evening at the Marina. We sat outside and enjoyed the view, the breeze, and the lake. We had a variety of main courses, from the NY steak (proclaimed the best my friend had ever had), salmon (deemed very good), lake percher (excellent), Reuben sandwich (the only disappointment ... had almost no...

View from the restaurant is great especially in summer, water skiing, boating and just beautiful water. We had a burger that the cheese was melted over the edges. Burgers are homemade & delicious. Fries are excellent. Menu specializes in their famous burgers but fish & chips are very good. Too full for dessert but took our drinks to bar to... More
