I only ever have the burger*. Toasted bun, nice homemade patties, all the fixin's and fabulous fries. * Because I love a well made burger. Been to all the burger haunts around; chains and road houses, in the city, highway and bars. I always compare my experience to their burger, and haven't found... read more

It's not the best in appearance & it can be rather cool in the winter but the burger & fries (fresh cut) were excellent. This is a end unit of a Motel facing Head Lake in my town of Haliburton.

after one of our sledding party broke down we decided to have dinner at the Head Lake grill next to the motel that we stayed at. After reading some of the comments on Tripadvisor about this restaurant we were a little hesitant to go in, oh my goodness as soon as we walked in the door of this adorable clean... More

These folks know how to do great "home" food. Small and clean. Best breakfast in town. Awesome burger and fish and fresh-cut chips. All cooked from scratch so takes a little longer. Their view off their deck competes with lake placid any day. And seniors discount!!

After coworkers had told us how good the burgers were, we decided to try again. Yes, they are homemade and very large.. Yes, they are dry and tasteless and the supermarket burger bun they are served on falls apart before you are halfway through. The fries although hand cut and fresh, tasted like they were cooked in old oil and... More

Simple little restaurant with great deck. Best breakfasts in town - great home fries, big servings, choices. For lunch -- real burger from fresh meat with all the fixings. Also their fish and chips are fresh, generous and reasonable. Seniors discount too :)

Everything on the menu is fresh cooked on site using local produce. I had the banquet burger and fries. You tell from the taste of the meat that it is fresh and made on site, not frozen. The fries were excellent and tasted the way fries should. Definitely a place to go to again.
