I would tend to believe the response that the owners put up regarding the comments made by OMG. We have ate here many times and they have good food. The only meal which I have had there that i didn't like was the steak and kidney pie. I always like to try unique foods. I expressed my desire to try... More

Thank you for your honest review. . I remember you from that night. I do not like Steak & Kidney pye either, I always order steak & mushroom when I go to a pub. It was good timing after OMG's “glowing” review. We take this very personally as we are a family run business and put a heck of a... More

Thank you for another glowing review. As usual it is my family and staffs pleasure to serve you wholesome, freshly prepared & cooked meals. Most of our offerings are prepared from scratch, whether it be sauces, desserts or even the house made croutons for your salad. We "try not to" dump stuff out of a frozen card board box and... More

Food and service are always great. It's an English style restaurant, with lots of traditional English dishes. It's one of our favorite places that we go every time we are up at Ahmic Lake.

We were planning on eating at another restaurant but lucky for us they were closed because we discovered Tanners. Tough to see from the highway as we drove past it but quickly realized our mistake and turned around.

My Mom and I were exploring the Old Nipissing Road trail and weren't sure how far we could get in one day so didn't make prior arrangements. We stopped in at Tanners to ask for directions and they very kindly offered to serve us dinner even though they had already closed the restaurant. Seriously yummy sirloin burgers.

Excellent food prepared by an outstanding chef. Certainly the best in this area in my own opinion. In fact, given some advance notice, Barry Tanner is quite capable of preparing special dishes that would challenge the abilities of many big city "gourmet" establishments. And I say that as a retiree having had considerable experience with the latter during my working... More

This little spot is our favourite in a radius of 100Kms. The food is always well prepared, hot and delish! It is family run and has it's own chef who prepares many English style dishes along with the regular fair. Food is fresh prepared. The pickerel night is a delight. The staff is friendly and efficient so we don't mind... More

Previously, we had just stopped by for lunch and found nothing exceptional. In the last year and a half, we've discovered their excellent dinner menu, and regularly have a meal there when up visiting our cabin in the area. The dining area is surrounded by floor to ceiling windows with bird feeding stations every few feet. Fascinating entertainment, if Paul,... More
