Great food

We stopped here for lunch and were pleasantly surprised by the great food and very large portions (seriously you can split a main and still be full). Staff was great and we had a really nice view of the river while we ate.

Good food and plenty of it! Had the chicken fingers and was surprised to get five plump pieces of chicken. Wife had the chicken caeser salad and they didn't skimp on the chicken. Fries were great as well. The waitress (Lisa) was excellent as well. Great service and great food....just what the traveller wants!

Stopped in on my way back from the cottage on a recommendation from a friend. Order the Mad Musher burger and onion rings. Fast, hot, and homemade, it was an excellent meal, and the Muskoka Brewery beer selection was a perfect match. Would highly recommend it. Seems very family friendly as well.

Great location and a hardy meal. The elk burger was excellent. Service was friendly and the view great. Good food after a day in the park.

Truth be told, I was heading west on Hwy 60 & stopped at 2 restaurants for lunch but was totally ignored as I waited to place an order for takeout. In one of them, the waitress walked by me at least 6 times and did not look at me or acknowledge me - I know she was busy but even... More

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.
