Middle of the road

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.

Service was good, food was very bad. Will not be back for dinner again. We were going to try another place,but we could not reserve a time,as they do not reserve tables for under 10 people. It was my wife's birthday so I wanted to make sure I could get a table.BIG MISTAKE.

I have the privilege of visiting Fort Frances about 3 times per year and my mouth begins to water when I get on the plane in Ottawa knowing I'm going to have my pickerel. Tonight it was pickerel & a Greek salad. Kari, the server was very accommodating to allow me to make changes to the menu. Service was exceptional... More

I have been there on a lot of occasions namely breakfast, lunch and dinner. The restaurant is on the lake front and so a pleasant outlook from wherever you sit. The restaurant is also in a sunny position. The staff are excellent and make you feel welcome and seem as though they enjoy their jobs. A very pleasant place/experience.

I''ve eaten here three times in the past several years, with fishing buddies. I've had Walleye all three times, have really enjoyed it and the ceasar or house salad. Everyone with me liked their food. The service was not Michelin 3 star, but they did a pretty decent job. All in all, very good

We stayed at the hotel for a hockey tournament t and the service in this restaurant is beyond excellent. My 5 year old is autistic and it was the least amount of stress eating out I've ever had. The staff treat you like family. The food is excellent. My favourite was the ceasar salad, the dressing is delicious. I wasn't... More

I had three experiences in the restaurant over this pat weekend. The food was above average each time. The portions sizes were very good. I had a western for breakfast both times and it was perfect. The western came with potatoes and toast. The service was very good and the food came out warm and fast. At dinner I ordered... More

There wasn't enough room around tables! The price was fair! It would be good if better design for wheelchairs and walkers

Have been here a few times. The food seems very hit or miss along with the service. I don't think I've seen a single employee smile any of the times I've been there with the exception of one girl who no longer works there. The wait times are also hit or miss which is understandable if the place is busy,... More

The location and food are amazing - if the staff weren't talking amongst themselves (about other customers, about how much they had to drink the day before because it was so busy in the restaurant, sarcastically about the 'sexy Europeans' heading down to the beach, about how late some customers stayed the night before, about how customers were behaving the...
