Great staff and excellent food. Well established and popular for a reason. We would not hesitate to go back and could highly recommend. You will not be disappointed

Coconut curry is bland and the burgers are dry and tasteless. The service was good. Overall waste of money. I will not be back.

I ate dinner here last night with five other birdwatchers from Ottawa before a day of birding in Algonquin Park. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. I had one of the best veggie burgers I've ever eaten! The service was a bit slow but...More

Went to the Mad Musher because it was the nearest restaurant open which was near our B&B in Whitby. We were promptly greeted and seated (but at the back room) rather than the main dining hall (which had vacant tables). The back room was short...More
