Excellent lunch

A great place for lunch, not fancy, but clean and the food is excellent. Great taste, staff is friendly and they serve fair trade coffee. There is also wifi for those who are interested. Located right beside a babbling brook

We stayed in Whitney a few nights - it isn't spoilt with several places to eat out at, which is what makes the Mad Musher so good. They don't have to be good but they are. The service was attentive and informative, all the food we had was exceptional, and the Muskoka Brewery craft lager was superb.

We were seated in the room overlooking the water, but we asked to be moved to the main dining room because of the noise level (loud voices and no carpet)

Travelled to Withney on a rainy day in Algonquin Park. Small simple restaurant that serves good food. The baked potato soup was especially good. The Montréal smoke meat sandwich was also enjoyable.

When we finally had the chance to order the Elk burger with a raspberry mayonnaise sounded pretty good...but that's all it did,sound good. Firstly, when our food came it went to the wrong table and after my wife alerted the waitress to this she responded by going through her dockets instead of immediately rectifying the mistake. Since the other table... More

After leaving Algonquin Provincial Park we stopped here for lunch. I was surprised at the vegetarian options. My daughter enjoyed a soy burger, the fries were cut fresh and were delicious! It was a good stop. Cool art work.

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.
