This place is fantastic. You have to really look for it, but it sure is worth the search. Everything is made from scratch. The freshness and quality of the food is amazing. None of that frozen or packed food here. Everything Diana makes is just like it was cooked from your best home cooked meal. This place is too good... More

I finally found some great tasting food in Haliburton. I am quite demanding when it comes to how my food tastes. I would not change a thing with the meal that I just ate. Fresh cut fries, hand carved fish fillets, hand made burger, all the burger fixings were so, so fresh, and the gravy definitely did not come out... More

From the amazing, homemade fresh food to the wonderful owner/operator (Diana Gomes) who treats you as if you are a guest if you are a guest in her own home, you can't get any better than that! My husband ordered a burger and fries, burger was hand made and fresh fries) and I had chicken fingers. I saw her actually... More

My family had been looking for a really good non franchise cheeseburger in the area around our cottage. We had heard of the Head Lake Eatery, but we had never been. It's been renamed the Head Lake Grill, we finally stopped in to give or a try. Now, do not let the appearance of the place turn you away. It's... More

Now seems to be called Head Lake Grill, and is just a small very basic eatery, no frills but the food was very good. Pop (soda) served just in the can but not really a problem. Most people seem to use it as a take away but we ate in. Don't be put off by appearances but don't expect fine... More
