I visit the Cornerstone a lot and I always have a great time there. Their food is fantastic and so are their cocktails. They actually just re-did their menu adding some new delicious dishes while keeping the classics. The Cornerstone salad is actually to die for! Simple enough it's the vinagrette that makes it sooo delicious. I get it every... More

We looked on tripadvisor for an open restaurant, a limited choice at 10:00 PM. This was in an old building, but the premises was OK. The menu had many choices. I had a burger, my brother had a sirloin steak, mywife had a prime rib sandwhich. The food was served promptly Kenora

Cornerstone was recommended by hotel staff. It was a good recommendation. Very nice variety of options. The fresh Walleye special was very nice. Perfectly cooked and well presented. The by-the-glass wine selection was limited. The service was excellent, efficient and friendly. The dessert servings were very generous and we were glad we shared! The prices were reasonable for the quality.... More

this is a restaurant that is special- the atmosphere is neat as it's an old building turned into this eatery. The food is very good, especially their house salad, my fav. Staff are friendly and there, making sure you get your refills.

We have eaten here a few times and it always has been a wonderful experience! Food is great and many choices for those that like options - I had the chick pea/sweet potato burger... Amazing! The corner stone salad is a favourite as well! It's a meal on its own! Cute atmosphere and can't wait to return!

Nice place for lunch or dinner. Friendly staff, reasonable prices. Would definitely go there again. Enjoyed the hot chocolate on a cold, rainy day.

Cornerstone has amazing food! There isn't anything on the menu that I wouldn't eat. The restaurant is small and fills up fast so calling ahead to get a reservation is good call. The Cornerstone salad is the best salad in Kenora!

I think this is one of the most consistently good restaurants in Kenora. Great lunch menu, great dinner menu. I have yet to have a bad meal here.
