“Excellent Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

After another restaurant cancelled with 24 hours notice... Chery took on our Surprise 70th Birthday party with 35 people! They had Happy Birthday on the sign and a personalized menu for the party! The service was excellent and the food was amazing! All 35 people that attended had positive things to say about both the restaurant and the food! Apparently they are now running the restaurant in Bancroft - "South Algonquin Diner" - you can be sure we will stop there! Thanks Cheryl

“Wings on Wednesday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

The cookhouse is the place to be Wednesday night for wing night. I find that often the wings could use a little more sauce though as sometimes there is barely enough to coat them. Primavera pasta with goat cheese is great!!! Waitresses have a bit of an attitude sometimes but overall the atmosphere is great, especially when there is a live band.

“Great menu, delicious, well presented food, very reasonable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Went for dinner there this past Saturday night, it was very busy, regardless the service was good.
Really liked the menu options, ended up having the special for the day which was steak. They start you off with a plate of delicious bread, chose the fries for the option and the steak was fantastic.
All of the meals on the menu listed were $12-$20 then a couple for $25, so the prices were very good relatively to the high quality and presentation of the food.
The restaurant was nice, very comfortable spot for an evening dinner.

My only gripe was the beer selection, they didn't have draft/kegs they had only the standard labatts, coors light, and keiths, and at $5.95+tx per bottle that way too much for a bottle of beer.

“Great breakfst service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

I loved the fast friendly service and a great selection of menu items for breakfast. The location is off the beaten track but worth the drive.
