This is a bar and grill with great food. I had the lamb dinner and really enjoyed it. Friendly service, too.

Some menu items were already gone when we arrived at 6:00, but we ate well regardless. The menu was surprisingly different for a small place - chanterelle mushroons and braised lamb was unexpected, and very good. Well worth eating here.

The waitress was charming and engaging and didn't seem like we were inconveniencing her. The food was ok, I had a burger and fries. Homemade patty at least. My friends had wings and seemed to really like them. Not a bad place to eat at all.

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.
