The food was excellent. One friend said his soup was one of the best he has had ever and the other two of us loved the Beet and Walnut salad. But unfortunately it was so cold inside that it was hard to enjoy the great food as we were freezing. It was obvious that others felt the same. I wouldn't... More

I enjoy the food at the Cornerstone. They have a good variety, some really unique dishes (not your average ordinary menu - which is nice) and good portions. Their Cornerstone Salad is excellent. I find the service isn't bad, but can be slow and I am not really fond of the seating arrangements (can be really crowded). Definitely worth a... More

We've had several trips to Kenora, but never managed to get here before this trip. Great atmosphere and decor in the old building. They had a very nice menu with lots of options and variety. Our waitress was totally awesome, as were our meals when they arrived. I had the beet and goat cheese salad. The walleye meal was wonderful.... More

Cornerstone burger and a couple Keith's Pale were just great. Service very friendly and prompt. Decor typical of an older building but more than adequate. Value as expected.

We had a lovely meal at this restaurant in the small town of Kenora Ontario. The coconut shrimp were delicious. My husbands steak was perfect and my pasta excellent. The decor is simple but welcoming. The service is very friendly and efficient. We also had a very good wine for a Reasonable price. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

The cornerstone salad keeps me going back, their soups are excellent, and so is the pork and wild rice burger, which I enjoy if their special does not appeal to me.

Went to The Cornerstone with my husband on a date night to Kenora. Since we hadn't had the pleasure of staying in Kenora before, we agonized for a while over where to eat. I am so glad we chose The Cornerstone Restauant. Our server was very attentive, pleasant and helpful despite the fact that she was new. There was boil... More

One of our favourite spots for lunch. Both had burgers, one with salad and one with fries. Excellent. Jolene was our server and she really knows what she is doing. Handles the lunch crowd on her own and does a great job.

We were pleasantly surprised by the range of vegetarian options on the menu. We got the quinoa burger and thought it was very good- great flavor and well presented with the flatbread. The regular and yam fries were both very good too! We noted some interesting veggie starters like Brie and almond bruschetta that we will definitely be back to... More

Food was tasty, waitress friendly and efficient. The menu listed a special deal of $4.00 for a pitcher of Keith's beer from Monday to Thursday before 6 pm. I don't usually order beer but that seemed a great deal, so I ordered it. When I was away from the table, a pint of beer was delivered. Eventually I asked the... More
