We were so excited about our experience. The food was all homemade and fresh. We will definitely come back with many people. The server Jazz was so pleasant and very professional. Her husband Bill was a pleasure to talk to. What a nice couple they make. See you soon.

We stopped by on a visit to Gimli for the day. We were seated right away and the server was very helpful. The food was very good and the portions were excellent. Our food arrived in record time and we were all very pleased with our meals. I will most definitely be back for another clubhouse sandwich.

The food is well cooked and plenty of it. They are open all year and help the community buy coupon in the local paper. So buy from a supporter and not just a summer seasoner.

It's got a quiet country vibe. The servers and staff are incredibly kind and the Jazz's Deluxe Burger is amazing. You definitely get more food than you can eat most of the time, but what's wrong with that? I'd definitely go back.

This place is on the smaller side and can get crowded so you may have to wait a while depending on when you go. Good place for some fast food fix.

The food is why we went there for lunch. We had been once before and enjoyed the food a lot and wanted to go back to see if we would have another great meal. The restaurant itself could use an update.

If you want a home cooked meal, this is the place to go. Excellent service, great view of the lake, whitecaps on the water, hence the name of the restaurant.

They always have coupons in the spectator for different times of the year so we went for the breakfast special , good value for the food you get. We have eaten there for dinner as well, and the same thing food s good for the price you pay. The owner is very friendly as is the rest of the staff.
