“BUSY!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

We stopped here for a late lunch. I had the shoal burger, my wife the quesadilla. We also had their cane sugar root beer. Food was great! It was packed on the patio and service took longer than we expected. It was a nice day and since we were not in a hurry the quality of the food balanced out the wait.

“GO HERE!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

If you miss this stop in Ganonoque, you are a fool, truly! Every time I have visited Axel Works, I have found something lovely in the clothing store, had an incredible loose leaf tea in the coffee shop, and had an amazing meal at the Pig Iron BBQ.

“Cold cappuccino”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

The ambiance is unique and worth the visit alone. We enjoyed reading The New York Times. However, the cappuccino was cold.

“Best lunch or snack in Gananoque”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

We sent a lot of business their way when we got married in Gananoque a few weekends ago -- we recommended the Pig to pretty much every one of our guests looking for a place to eat. It was *that* good. I suspect that they change their menu regularly, but we tried their Shoal Burger, bacon sarnie, grilled cheese with beef brisket and jalapenos, and quinoa salad that weekend. Everything was delicious and we were warmly welcomed back on our second visit. They also provide gluten-free options. We'll definitely be back next time we're in town.

“A haven in Gananoque”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

We were trapped by the rain here for an hour...what a pleasure! The place is incredibly charming, the owner served us with two delicious cups of Chai and a portion of cake that was to die for.
My favourite place in Gananoque, by far.
