We went here for dinner on a Friday night at 7, so they were busy. The food was great; definitely the best poutine we had while in Canada. Service was just okay; once we had our food we were not offered refills on drinks. Would recommend, and would return if we visit Whitney again.

I have been here three of four times over the years. Had lunch as a snowmobiler a couple of times, another 2 occasions with my wife. A good place to stop if you are close by in the Park or passing through. I have never been disappointed and have always received a warm welcome.

Roadside restaurant just by the entrance to the east gate of Algonquin Park. The eggs benedict were delicious and piping hot. The only downside were the home fries which I think were just boiled potatoes, diced, but unseasoned. It's a great stop for a quick breakfast.

My Dad and I liked this restaurant so much that we decided to come back for a second night in a row. The service is great with very friendly waitresses and there was plenty of food selection available. Very pleased with our food and enjoyed 3 courses (which is rare for us!!). Worth a try if you're in the area... More

We've been coming to The Mad Musher for DECADES and it's as good as anything you can get at any restaurant down South. It has come a long way over the years with more of a focus now on creative meals and art. This doesn't draw us as much as having a home cooked meal when we're camping for a... More

Seating in area close to the waterfalls is the only thing that made this dining worthwhile. Slow service . Younger waitress was very friendly and very good at her job. Out dated decor ,dark and dirty looking atmosphere .

This place recommended by a local...but was only place open to eat. Food was very expensive and poor quality. Friendly waitress when not running around.

While staying in the area with breakfast and dinner included we wanted something light for lunch . Friendly service, good menu choices, tasty food and the sound of rushing water over rocks just outside the window. Just what we wanted.
