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

The food is excellent here. I love thiercornerstone salad and chicken and goat cheese sandwich. They are really good at accommodating people with allergies or sensitivities. They offer gluten free options too!. Some times service can be a bit slow.

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.
