“Great seafood, not customer friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

We dined here twice during our one week stay at Tupper Lake. First and foremost, the seafood is very fresh and well-prepared. Maple salmon, broiled scallops and shrimp were all done to perfection, and the servings were plentiful. You can even get a clambake for under $25! HOWEVER, if you BYO a bottle of wine, you won't be permitted to drink it. If you want bread with your meal, you may have it only if you order the salad bar at an added cost of $2.50. The salad bar is extremely limited and the selections are not very appetizing-- iceberg lettuce, under ripe tomatoes, some kind of sausage??-- Not worth the added expense, and the sign that admonishes the diner to "eat everything you take" is insulting. The 4-star rating is based on the quality of the seafood. If you like vegetables and you don't want the salad bar, good luck. There's one vegetable of the day. Too bad this is the only restaurant in town for a really good dinner. This place needs some competition.

“White Birch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

The White Birch Cafe is a great place for sea food. They will prepare it as you request and we've eaten at this restaurant for over 10 years. I would suggest you stay away from the lemon seasoning - it may be too strong for your taste. The pizza is good, desserts are great and service is good.

“Very Good Basic Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Basic menu, nicely prepared dishes, pretty good service, so so ambience. Chose something I didn't like, not their fault.
