Great dining, generous portions and really nice staff made this establishment a winner when we were in Manitowaning in the summer. Lovely fresh fish on offer and top quality pizza too. Would definitely recommend.

We were happy to be able to walk to restaurant. The trick is to stick with specials, hot and tasty. Good luck to new owners and their children

We sat out on the deck over looking the main street and the Debajehmujig Creation Centre (a must see as well), enjoying a cold beer and delicious white fish dinner. The dinner came with chips or salad and vegetables. Great service and reasonably priced.

Drove down to Manitowaning for a change from Little Current seeking new restaurant possibilities.

Prices were reasonable enough and the portion size was adequate. Downsize of... More
