“Kentucky Fishermen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Eight of us had been fishing all week. It was a pleasure to see the waitresses and they gave us a verbal tour of the best stuff on the menu. It was great. There was a child that came into the restaurant. I don't like children but this one was polite and used utensils...I liked that one. Enjoyed the restaurant and have eaten there on every trip over the past few years. We liked dining among the local and were well accepted. Good food. Good everything.

“Musky”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

My husband and I went to the restaurant while visiting the Art gallery across the street in Manitowaning. There were no vegan or vegetarian options. They never had the items on the menu that we did order. So we had a cup poor tea & coffee and went on our way.

“Dark and dingy”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

Can't stand a dark and dingy place.
This atmosphere reflects on the food; taste wise it is on the greasy side.

“Good restaurant - new friendly owners”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2011

The food was good, especially the home-made soup. The new owners will be doing some things to dress up the interior. They are great folks and will share info about the island and the First Nation heritage. If you are looking for something fancy, this isn't it. But, if you are looking for good, home-cooked food in a casual atmosphere, this is the place!
