We stayed here recently and had the breakfast which was the best I have ever had. I did not inquire to see if we could have breakfast if we did not stay there but will in the future even if I have to let them know the night before- it is that good. Family style, you get homefries (best I have ever had), toast and meats served family style. You can choose your main meal such as eggs, pancakes, breakfast sandwhich etc to go with it. There was more than enough food for the 4 of us and enough food to easily feed 6 people. IT was very good, all our meals were great and left us full until late afternoon. We also had dinner the night before. We did not order "meals" as we arrived late but we did order a pizza, nachos, burgers, fries and rings. The pizza is better than most local pizza places at home. Thin crust, Italian style made to order-very good and the toppings are perfect. The burgers were large and cooked to perfection-not your everyday small burger. The nachos also were a large portion and very good. The atmosphere is perfect, beatiful lodge with interactive narrative digital TV about the area and things to do. We will return again when we go to this area!

Second visit here, trying to give them a second chance. First visit they had just opened and you never know how it's going to turn out. Heading to Jackman with hubby and 10 year old grandson and hungry for lunch. No doubt this is a very beautiful place, including the view of the river. We were greeted instantly and allowed to choose our seating. We chose a table with a view of the river and the tv showing extreme snowmobiling. Our order was placed and we anticipated a fairly quick return as we were the only customers at the time. Our order came in a reasonable amount of time and we dug right in. My not so spicy chili was tasty but not hot. My grandsons grilled cheese was burned on the bottom which he didn't tell us about until we were in Jackman. Hubby's chicken wrap was ok. This beautiful building with all its outdoorsy decor needs to have a better handle on how their food is cooked and assure the waitstaff and customer it's the best possible meal served. Most likely won't return a third time. If only the food was as good as the view.
