A little gem

We bookec an extended family lunch and could not have had a better time. Service very friendly. Food took a while to come but was well worth the wait. All home prepared and cooked, you could taste that too. Good selection of drinks available. Worth making time to give a try

We went here last year and the atmosphere and food was great. Now they got rid of the old bar and added a convenience store. Menu is limited with no pub grub that you would expect. 45 minutes to get our food with only one other table in the, restaurant?? Panini was plain, and my wife's noodle dish tasted funny.... More

We were looking forward to stopping on the way to Haliburton.. We pulled up at 12 and not a car in the lot.. Bad sign... The lady rushed out and cut some flowers and we went in.. The restaurant is totally changed and the menu there was nothing that looked good. We left.. Too bad it changed

It's nice to boat up the Kushog, and have dinner on the lake. Food is average as best. It seems teen to 20's maybe like a little better...inexpensive.

This restaurant has an amazing location on the shore of a beautiful lake. The view from the deck is worth the visit. The food is excellent, well prepared, and great quantity. In particular, the schnitzel sandwich is huge and delicious, and comes with a heap of very good fries. The coffee is superb. The service is exceptionally friendly, prompt, and... More

Enjoyed dinner at Firehouse Restaurant. Husband is a firefighter ... Was interesting looking at all the different FF patches from around the world, FF memorabilia and taking a look at the guest books signed by visiting FFs over the years ... Was interesting to see the names of old friends and coworkers ...

We visited the restaurant August 2014. Arrived between 5-6pm on a rainy afternoon. The decor inside the restaurant is very dated and tired. Chair backs were lacking stain. We sat midway in the restaurant. The waitress did turn the lights on but the lighting consisted of white string lights that you would use at Christmas time. Not much help. Felt... More

We have had a cottage in Haliburton for 18 years and always driven by this restaurant. We went in last week and had a great time.The atmosphere and decor is very laid back. Our waitress was funny and amazing! The food was excellent (another couple had the onion rings and said they were the best they ever had). Lot's of... More
