“Awesome dishes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We left the city to stay in the Muskoka area at the beginning of the March Break. Stumbled across this restaurant and was so glad we did! Amazing meals and incredible service! The portion size is much bigger than anticipated and the meal options are unique and delicious! Asked for a menu so that our B&B owner could recommend to other guests. Definitely will return!

“A gem!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Wonderful food, great service, intimate atmosphere, a pleasant experience!
A small menu which often means fresh and well prepared. It did not disappoint! The desserts were also amazing.

“Good spot for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I have only had lunch here. The food is great. A little different from the usual pub food. Atmosphere is bright and inviting. Friendly staff.
