Average pub style food at a premium price. Even though the place was busy the service was prompt and the waitress was pleasant. The owner was there but didn't greet anyone as such.

This is one of the best kept secrets in Muskoka.... excellent food, beautifully plated, wonderful service, decent wine list and reasonably priced. Unassuming but comfortable setting with a beautiful view down the Moon River. Great value!

Had a great meal today. I tried the Chicken Gnocchi in white wine sauce and loved it. The soup was as good as always. Good food, good atmosphere and good service makes good value.
