Everything was ok here, with a few exceptions. Liked the beer selection and the outdoor seating. Service was friendly and prompt. Food was definitely the ok part. We ordered the kids pasta with marinara and it was far too peppery for my daughter to eat. After one bite she was upset because it was too spicy! I tasted it and... More

Nestled right by the Ox Narrows on Lake Kushog, it's easy to access this restaurant by HWY 35 or by boat on the lake. There's lots of good docking facilities there. The food is good to very good, and the waitresses are friendly. The real appeal is just kicking back with your meal, seated at one of the outdoor tables... More

We love this restaurant; a real cottage country gem, right on the lake, where you can seat outside on the deck overlooking the waterfront, watch passing boats, and relax sipping your wine or beer, feeling the soothing breeze, and enjoying great food. We went for a boat ride with our friend and decided to stop for lunch early afternoon. The... More

Love this restaurant, right on the lake, in the beautiful Algonquin Highlands! Excellent meals AND desserts. The restaurant is like a little firehall museum, very cool to peruse the artifacts, and enjoy the view, indoors or on the patio. Funny, friendly staff, great service and great value! (This is not a late night bar scene restaurant)

We love to stop in at the Firehouse on Friday night as we arrive at the cottage on Kushog Lake. Great meals, abundance of food, friendly service, and choice of eating indoors or out! Excellent family atmosphere and the grandchildren love the candy and ice cream selection! Nice to be able to arrive by boat or car.

Best location and scenic view overlooking Lake Furhog, our service was friendly and attentive and the staff always greeted us with a smile. Portions and quality of the meals where truly a value for the price... More

We had the good fortune of taking a beautiful drive at the end of June and coming across this Hidden Treasure. We stopped in for dinner and were absolutely thankful that we did. We were greeted by the staff as if we were family, they immediately made us feel at home and from that moment on it only continued to... More
