A great place to celebrate!

We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary with friends. It truly is our favourite place to go. Our meals were excellent and very much enjoyed. The management and staff are always so nice and accommodating. We look forward to our next evening out!

Were planning a day trip to Cobourg and checked tripadvisor for best spot in town to have lunch. Previous reviews were correct, lovely atmosphere and very nice lunch. Spouse had a hamburger which was recommended and I chose the spinach stuffed ravioli. We were very happy with our choices. Would go here again for sure and recommend to friends.

We stayed at the hotel and decided to try the restaurant. So glad that we did; all four of us had the Table D'Hote 3 course menu which proved to be an excellent choice. It was really good value and the setting and style of service were just right.

The food was delicious and lived up to it's excellent reputation by all accounts.

Attended their buffet on Mother's day. Food average, Service rushed and we were asked to hurry up and leave to make room for the next setting. Over priced for the food offered. Good salad bar, but pedestrian.
