Unbelievable place, food is fantastic! Friendly staff, top notch. From the moment when I walked in the door I felt like I was family. They treated us so well, would definitely come back

“What a great first place to visit on arrival in Canada”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

Visited yesterday first meal in Canada and what a great start to the trip, they have set the standard, we could learn from this place in the UK, great attentive service without being intrusive or over bearing, the waitress was so busy but stayed calm and unflustered, acknowledged us straight away, (you may think this basic but I think it's a rarity) and the food was great, great menu and served fresh and flavoursome, thank you I hope we make it back before we leave

“A decent place that deserves a try!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

I decided to give this place a try based on the diverse menu (considering it's a pub). I went for the buffalo chicken sandwich which was absolutely delicious. Tender chicken breast, a fantastic baguette (I think they use Ace bread), plump tomato slices, and a tangy hot sauce made for an incredible sandwich. The fries also deserve some recognition, even though they were served a bit cold. The side garden salad with balsamic was decent, but nothing out of the ordinary. The place itself is trying to resemble a muskoka-type cottage and does an OK job, but the booth seats and certain decorative pieces on the wall are seriously old and drab. The bathroom was also a mess during my visit. I will definitely be back to this place, but wish the owners could clean it up a bit more. Simple changes such as new seat coverings at the booths, better art work on the walls, and other changes to fixtures would make the dining environment and overall experience more pleasant.

“Our new favorite restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

We keep coming back because everything on the menu is so good. The food is awesome, everything I try I say is my new favorite, and my husband loves the selection of beers on tap. Affordable too so we can visit often- the burgers and brickle dessert are addictive!
