My husband and I had a lovely dinner here last night. We had filet mignon which came as ordered, medium rare. Vegetables perfectly cooked. We also had the escargot, which was deliciously cheesy and garlicky, mmmm. We just stumbled on this place while coming through town on our way home to Ottawa. The patio was a perfect place to spend... More

We often go for dinner at this place on Friday after a long week of work. They have a good filet mignon and other very good choices. The desserts are also delightful. The girls are polite and professionnal. Diner there is always a pleasure.

I went to White owl for my friend birthday. Restaurant was almost empty ( just one more table). We wait 45 minutes for our order, and my steak was well done. I asked for medium rare. This was first time I send food back. Server didn't even apologize, just said they cook me other one. So my friend was done... More

We were able to walk to this restaurant from our B and B. Very charming exterior, and the interior followed suit. I had the local pickerel and was very satisfied. The fish was done perfectly as were the accompanying vegetables. My friend ordered the trout, and was also very pleased with her meal. Attentive service as well! Definitely worth a... More

What a treat for Sunday brunch! The hollandiase sauce is delicious with slivered ham or smoked salmon. There is a lovely to sit on the patio and relax. The waitress was friendly and helpful and ready with lots of tasty coffee.

from the outside this looks like a weird colorful old cottage, painted bright blue and yellow. it is wonderful, food was excellent, servers knowledgeable and friendly, the decor inside is very pleasant with calm colors. The patio outside facing the lake is a very relaxing spot. So worth dining here.

The White Owl is a great little place on Lakeshore a Drive. Great ambience, especially on the patio at sunset. Food is excellent. They catered to our dietary needs as well as creating something special for a picky child. Service was amazing!

The service was good. The waitress was timely and the water bread drinks and food and bill came in good time. We were seated right away. The escargo was torched or something not baked so no piping hot cheese. Grecos make way better. The trout was not fresh and tasted strong. The seafood cannelloni was filled with mostly tightly packed... More

While in town visiting family we had two opportunities to go to this restaurant. One was for lunch on the patio. It was so beautiful, peaceful, romantic music, a view of the lake. The food was very well presented, it was fresh and delicious. Our second visit was for dinner. This was inside the quaint little building. The food was... More
