a little gem overlooking the lake

I heard a word of mouth recommendation on fish and chips. Had three orders to go and two extra fish pieces. Mistake on the extra. Definitely did not need. The portions were very large and very good. Fresh cut fries. Lightly battered fish. Actually very nice inside and very clean. Menu board with... read more

Diana, and her crew make you feel as if you are BBQ'ing in your backyard (only better). Her baked goods are above reproach - gotta try some !

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 one that is as good. Fish and... 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 :)
