Stopped for a quick bite prior to going on the MS Kenora. Very good selection on the menu. I had a wrap which was a generous size and very tasty. Good service, and good location. Nothing bad to say and would go back for sure!

Not a lot of choices in this small town, but Cornerstone stands out. great patio overlooking the harbor to watch the sun set, with fine, flavorful food served by attentive waitresses. Kenora may not be on your way, but if you happen to land there, you will enjoy your visit a lot more by dining at the Cornerstone Restaurant.

The food is always very good here and so is the service. It's great that now on a nice day you can enjoy the patio with views of the lake

Location here is great. Right downtown (w back patio overlooking the water in the distance - this place is not ON the water). Staff were super friendly and prompt, the restaurant itself is in a really old building (I could have done research into it but didn't). The inside decor is really warm and relaxed, yet polished. The beer selection... More

Had the pleasure of enjoying a meal here with friends. Not a huge place, and a little loud, high ceilings with no sound absorb, but neat little place. Service was very good, attentive but not in your face. Stay away from the Mojitos! Worst cocktail I've EVER had - tasted like Lime Rickey and rum with a mint leaf -... More

Returned here after a longish break. Got seats on their patio on a warm evening. Happy to see that while the menu has changed, it's retained some interesting vegetarian options. We got the flatbread with figs and beets and the veggie burger and were not disappointed. The house salad is great and the drinks decent. Not stellar food but definitely... More

The Cornerstone once again was a pleasure. On a busy Friday afternoon, I met a friend for lunch on the new patio. New menu - my friend tried the walleye bites (appetizer) and I had the walleye meal. Both were great! Our waitress was juggling many tables inside and out and did well! Very attentive.

The restaurant is difficult to find if it's your first visit. Parking is also difficult to find. The starter salads were very good. The entrees were excellent. But the sides were average. I had the al.ons crusted chicken and my husband had the steak. The sides were risotto, roasted potatoes and we both had vegetables. They were lukewarm and quite... More
