The Coconut cream pie is a signature must-have so leave room after the generous dinner portions. Each dish is home made and the fact that the place didn't have a single empty table says it all.

We had a family gathering here and it was a perfect venue. The appetizers were delish as was the main course. The servers were quick and friendly. We will definitely be back!

This is our favourite restaurant! If you ask me, it is the best place in town. Food is always fresh, and delicious, and there are endless great options. The Prime Rib is the best I've ever had! Any server we have ever had there has been amazing to us, prompt, friendly and professional. I don't have one complaint about this... More

8 of us had lunch here. Everything was good - omelette, sandwiches, home made potato soup, French onion soup, Greek salad. The place was almost full and there appeared to be only one waitress but the service was prompt & friendly. Would definitely go back.

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely lunch here recently. The dining room is a quiet, relaxing place to unwind, and to enjoy freshly prepared dishes. I ordered the whitefish lunch, which included a crisp green salad, tender steamed vegetables, and delicious sweet potato fries. The pan-fried whitefish was delicately prepared. The meal left me feeling satisfied, but not "stuffed".... More

This was our second time to the restaurant and while we were not disappointed with the meal and service their off business hours telephone service does not allow leaving a message/request for a reservation. Our reservation making experience was off putting enough that we will look elsewhere the next time we're in the area.

This is hands down, my favorite restaurant. I always get the bacon wrapped scallops & tender Filet mignon & usually a little homemade coconut cream pie for dessert. it is soooo delicious. The service by our waitress is always exceptional. (Wow, where can you go & your waitress knows what you want before you even order...great memory) Thank you so... More

Two bacon wrapped scallops cooker perfectly, four shrimp and two bruschetta I had the pork loin which was a bit over done but the peppery sauce... More

Wide food selection, excellent food preparation, great service - what more do you need ??? Decent wine selection, white tablecloths, reasonable prices, comfortable chairs ... It is not a rowdy place. Here, you can enjoy your meal with soft music, have conversations without yelling. Our meals were steak and scallops - perfectly done. The restaurant was very quiet on this... More

We were looking for a restaurant where we could enjoy fish caught in the nearby Georgian Bay. We had seafood, perhaps not from the Bay, but our meal was excellent. Vegetables were done perfectly, sweet potato fries were the best I've ever had and the fish was prepared very well. The atmosphere was elegant and relaxing. The restaurant is not... More
