I`ve eaten here about 10 times now and have never had a bad experience. The staff is so friendly and accommodating and the food is always amazing. I`ve had everything from deep fried pickles to northern Ontario walleye and I`ve always been happy with my meal. However, if you`re not happy, accomodations WILL be made. They have gluten free options... More

We had dinner here for sixteen, all meals were served at once and everyone was happy with thier meals. My wife and I had the walleye dinner, I grew up on walleye and this was very good. Great location on rainy lake, good service and a very good menu. Bar is in next room if that is the atmosphere you... More

plenty of room and view is to die for, service is first class. If you are having the pancakes bring a big appetite.

We have eaten many times at this restaurant. The staff is just wonderful and they treat you like royalty. The food...not always that wonderful. Sometimes you will get a good meal and others not. Most of the dressings, sauces and gravies are made from a package, not too much from scratch cooking. Simple fare is ok, burgers, wings and fries.

Just attended a noon retirement party. Food was served late and cold. Coffee took forever and there did not seem to be sufficient coffee pots to deliver beverages to everyone at the same time. Staff need training, including wait staff and kitchen crew. The only thing this restaurant has going for it is a lovely setting on Rainy Lake.

Had an awesome meal of wild rice soup and the back ribs entree with friendly service. Had I known, however, that the overflow seating for the bar for Thursday wing night spills over into the dining room I would probably have gone elsewhere. I was looking forward to a relaxing dinner with a view of the lake and had to... More

The view is outstanding. Outdoor seating in favourable weather. Decent menu and service is good. Love the atmosphere. Lunch Special each day. I usually visit after church or at lunch. Meals are tastey and decently priced. Wild rice soup is my favourite.

The food was great as expected but the staff in that place could use a time out. The manager and the wait staff were having a major argumement right in the dining room. The language used was not something you want to hear in a high end dining room. If my mother had heard that we would have been out... More

Front of house staff is great, let down by the food. It is fine, nothing special. If you want a quite place for lunch this is the place to go.
