Considering theres only one person cooking I feel it is very personable and laid back. The food is all home made and the cook cooks specifically for you. Everything is always fresh, service is friendly and energetic and restaurant is very clean with an excellent view

I am not in the habit of writing reviews (especially bad ones), but this must be heard.
I have been to this little place a few times and it wasn't half bad (not great, but not bad).
The last time I was there not only was the girl a the counter extremely unfriendly and angst-ridden but the owner (a larger woman who was in the kitchen who I am assuming is the owner) was incredibly rude as well. The two together were borderline abusive to my mother and I to the point that we asked for our money back and left without eating. I have never been treated so horribly in my entire restaurant going life. The larger woman asked if we were from around here (probably assuming that we were from Toronto and wanted to have a dig) to which we replied yes. Either way, what's the point of asking? Are locals used to abusive service? I think the whole incident disturbed the two other people in the place and for that I felt bad.

In the end, if you do go there, please give them a lesson in customer service.

Now called Head Lake Grill. (so ignore all previous reviews.) Breakfast, fish and chips (freshly breaded fish and fresh cut fries), chicken finger dinner (again all fresh) and poutine (with cheese curds) all very good. But the service is hit and miss... nice view of Head Lake from patio but no service out there if there's no waitress on. When the waitress is there she's pretty good but if it's just the owner(s), then not so good.

We had the fish and chips and the fish was very small for the price. Other restaurants in town have better fish with much larger portions for the same price or less. Pretty sure it was packaged fish you could buy at the store. Very disappointed.
