Great homemade pizza, cold beer and wonderful waitress made for an enjoyable afternoon stop while motorcycle touring the island.

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

Recommended by the owners of our motel, this was a real treat. Farm to table! Yeah! Had rainbow trout and the treat was a mushroom ball picked that morning! If you don't know what that is, it is a huge mushroom ball (grows locally in Canada), sliced and cooked in butter and lemon. It does not taste like any mushroom... More

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.

Stopped in while at anchor in Manatowaning. Great burgers, good onion rings. Waitress was a hoot! Great little spot. I'd go back.

Drove down to Manitowaning for a change from Little Current seeking new restaurant possibilities. Took a risk and I will say overall the food was above average and the staff (family) we kind and friendly. The restaurant décor resembles an old fishing lodge and gives a camp atmosphere. Prices were reasonable enough and the portion size was adequate. Downsize of... More

Eight of us had been fishing all week. It was a pleasure to see the waitresses and they gave us a verbal tour of the best stuff on the menu. It was great. There was a child that came into the restaurant. I don't like children but this one was polite and used utensils...I liked that one. Enjoyed the restaurant... More
