Mad Musher's Lunch

Stopped at Mad Mushers for lunch, very friendly service and good selection on the menu. Had the Mad Mushers Special burger it was tasty. certainly a place to stop at if you are in Whitney Ontario.

We have been to algonquin several times and this is the first time eating here. We had a table that over looked the river which was nice. Food is excellent and portions are very large. Will be back. Service was friendly

You will not leave hungry if you eat here - a decent lunch selection that included vegetarian options (which pleased my wife)! A nice water front view of the river plus pleasant service and tasty food - even I liked the vegan stew .... AND the chicken strips (large portions!)

We were looking forward to eating here because of the reviews but weren't able to. They cook everything with peanut oil and as my husband has a severe allergy we had to go somewhere else. They do have a sign right out front so that was great! I'm happy they have that warning. I'm just writing this review as a... More

Great casual dining and big portions of good food! Super home cut fries and gravy! We've visited before and it has always been great.

Quaint little place, odd name lol. We had a nice little table on a side verandah overlooking the river. Menu was a nice surprise, husband happily had venison stew, while I had shrimp and very delicious fresh cut fries. Sudden rush of people came in and the only server was a champ, friendly, calm and worked the room. Food was... More

This is a great place to go to after a day of exploring in Algonquin Park. It has tasy, home-made food. Today I had the lunch special: home-made macaroni and cheese with caesar salad and garlic bread. All delicious. My spouse had the musher burger--home-made patty on a fresh bun--with hand-cut fries cooked just right. The fries reminded us of... More

A good place to eat in Whitney but liked it alot more before they made the only dining area with a view of the river into an art display area - I want to come here because I'm hungry, the best art is outside the window of the room they closed off to diners. Food is good and affordable.

Three of us for Wednesday lunch by Snowmobile. The "B" trail runs right past the parking lot. Very 'snowmobiler' friendly with racks for helmets and gloves. Good comfort food and daily specials. We all had the $9.99 special and it was just the right quantity of good food to warm us up for the afternoon on the trails. Friendly,efficient ,chatty... More

I recently travelled to Algonquin for the weekend and had dinner and breakfast on different days at the Mad Musher. The food, although very simple was delicious. The value was certainly there. The Décor is lacking and the establishment really needs an upgrade, but that wouldn't stop me from going again. On my first trip I had the mad musher... More
