“nice stop for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

nice wide and varied menu selection. lovely view from each outside table. Ribs are tasty. very friendly service from the waitress who took the time to review the various pages of the menu with us. A little bit pricey though given up north.

“Good food but won't return.... ever”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Went here for lunch and really enjoyed the patio right on the water. The food was good but the service was terribly slow. It took so long to get the bill that we actually split up and some of us went shopping while the others stayed back to wait.

Thought we would try it again the next day for my dad's birthday dinner. We arrived at 6:30 PM and ordered our food. About 45 mins. later the waiter came by and asked for clarifications on our order. This was strange, we thought "has he not put the order through yet?" After over an hour of waiting we finally spoke to the manager who said he would look into it. At 8pm our food finally came!! The manager said the order had only been in for 36 minutes. We said "no way! We have been waiting an hour and a half!" The manager treated us as if we had been lying, when really it was the server's mistake. Needless to say, we were STARVING, and sad that it put a damper on the birthday. We were a table of 7, 3 of us ordered chicken fingers, one of us had just a salad, and our bill was still just under $300. What a waste!

Beautiful location, and pretty good food overall. I had the pad thai and my husband had the wings - I preferred the wings - they were delcious

“Great pub food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Fish tacos - yum. Deep fried pickles, fries, lots of great stuff. Yum! The patio looks out over Lake Muskoka, and it's a fun spot.
