Description: The Norsemen Restaurant is Muskoka's ultimate Bistro, with casual dining and "Old Muskoka" charm. Treat yourself to outstanding game, seafood and steak or try our Summer Monday Bistro menu with gourmet pizzas, wings and ribs. The Norsemen has a reputation for great food and great times.Whether nibbling before a stone fireplace in the dining room or out on the screened-in porch, delight in a diverse menu beginning with appetite-enhancers like Baked Woolich Goat Cheese or Lobster Ravioli. Inhale the Pinot Noir and Blueberry Bison Striploin, Greek Style Rack of Lamb, Thai Glazed Back Ribs or Filet of Pickerel in a white wine butter sauce, considered relaxation-enhancing substances in six provinces. Stretch the languorous evening further by swaddling appetites in decadent desserts like our Warm Chocolate Brownie, which performs its tongue ballet in tandem with hot fudge sauce and french vanilla ice-cream and finish off perfectly with a cappuccino encore.(please note the chefs changes the menu whenever he feels like it, so some items mentioned may not be available all the time)

We went to the Norsemen because we were staying nearby and had just arrived in the area not long before dinner time. We were optimistic when we arrived and we were told by our local host that it is very good, but it is definitely overpriced. The food was okay, They did some nice things like an amuse bouche and...

A lovely dinner as usual. All five Appetizers, entrees, and desserts were delicious. I had the Seared Georgian Bay Pickerel, hubby had the Organic Atlantic Salmon, my son is still raving about the Duck and his Seared Diver Scallops and our friends both commented on how good the Bison Short Rib Gnocchi was. We topped dinner off with Spanish and... More

Excellent chef!!!! One of the best meals I have had the pleasure of experiencing. Friendly staff and a very nice environment. Try the grilled calamari, lamb and the the lemon curd (to die for)...

Since under new managemnet the food is sub par, portions are small and lacks flavour. Far better options in the area.

We were looking to have a special meal to end our family vacation and the Norsemen was just perfect. Everyone was pleased with their entrees - duck, bison, scallops, and more. The staff was eager to work with our younger ones to make sure they had something they enjoyed, too. And we were treated to spectacular sunset colors reflected on... More

Sometimes an out-of-the-way restaurant really is worth seeking out; The Norsemen is one of those.Appetizers, entrees to desert and coffee... all above-average. Priced quite reasonably. Nice lakeside location and attentive service. This couple will be returning!

The Norsemen Restaurant is a good choice for a good, special meal when in or around Huntsville. Overall, the restaurant is good, but not great. Both of our entrees were rather salty, and my partner's dessert - a mousse - was way too cold (semi-frozen rather than "moussey"). The decor is quaint and not incredibly exciting or comfortable. Overall, the... More

I dined at The Norsemen for the fourth time in October and cannot say enough about this restaurant. I ordered the beef tenderloin, which I must say, exceeded my expectations, even for The Norsemen. The cozy atmosphere adds more to the experience, and the warm, friendly staff top it off. I can't wait to go back in the spring.
