The main course we both chose was the dill salmon. Large portion was delicious. The mixed vegetables were simple but amazing. My... read more

I came for lunch with my friends over the holidays. Our total time took two hours, and the food was most definitely sub par. I had a quesadilla, which was basically an emosty set of tortillas. Thankfully I wasn't working today, as I would be very late to return after lunch. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to any of my... More

I’m unfortunately, not very courageous when it comes to trying “New Foods”, in fact I’m very particular but most tell me I’m fussy when it comes to food. So I’m trying to change that – which is why I tried something I’ve never had before while at The Cornerstone during a business meeting. Before getting to deep into it, The... More

Very consistent. I live in town, and this is easily one of the best, if not the best place to eat in here! Keep it up guys, you rock!

The food was very good at this restaurant. The waitress made us feel like we were inconveniencing her though

I arrived at 5:30, early for dinner and was the only patron, I was worried I was in the wrong kind of place with no other guests. In 15 minutes the place was packed with what looked like a solid crowd of 'Cheers-like' regulars. I ordered the sweet potato fries and and a glass of sauvingnon blanc. My party arrived... More

We dropped in for dinner Friday late afternoon. It was not crowded. The food was excellent as well as the service. We will come back again.

Stopped in here after the MS cruise basically for a night cap. Ended up staying for a couple of hours with a bunch of friends having appetizers and drinks and listening to the live music. Service was great and it was a nice crowd that just enjoyed the atmosphere like we did with the live music on the side. .... More

We enjoyed our food very much. This was our second time in this restaurant (one year apart) and will always try to eat here in the future as Kenora is a little thin for restaurants of quality. The walnut and beet salad was very good and I would recommend it to anyone. The wait staff were attentive and not overbearing.... More

I had the quinoa veggie burger for lunch (no bun so it was gluten free) and it was very tasty. the yam chips (fries) are DEE-LISH! I also like the interior decor.
