Prime rib? Best in town. Fish 'n' chips? Best in town. Liver and onions? YES, they have it (probably the only place in town, but as good as any, anywhere). Real milkshakes. Great atmosphere, great service. Outstanding view of lake and marina. I love this place.

By far the best prime rib dinner I have had in years. Come early and if you can reserve a spot. A very fun local place to come for a meal. Food is fresh service is excellent.

Pros.
Really neat old dinner atmosphere
Lake views

Cons
Worst service I have ever had in the hundreds of places I have been, never even were asked how our food was or if we would like refills or another drink. There were about 4 employees there and only 2 other customers other than us (4)
We watched an employee walk by the station where food was to be picked up and literally eat off a customers plate and then without washing his hands he begin preparing ceased salads with his bare hands that had just been in his mouth and snacking while prepping. We were so apauled at this unsafe practice of food handelling that we immediately stopped eating and left. The employee that was doing this only looked to be between 12-14 years old.

Anyhow because of the grotesque manner in which the service and food safety is we will never return which is to bad cause it was a neat lil spot.

We had a large party, 8 adults, 3 children (1 in a high chair) , so I called to make a
reservations. They were very helpful, in making sure that they had all needed information to make our stay more comfortable.
We arrived a little early, but they were still ready and waiting for us. So of our was later, but it make no difference, the food all came at the exact same time.
They were all ready for kid, having several buckets filled with little toys. And they didn't mind helping out the new mom, by warming up food that they had brought with them. Also when I requested that my kids' food be brought early, they were quick on their feet about it.
The food was excellent. The meal of choice was "Handown Fish". They had portion control too, you could choose between 1, 2 or 3 pieces of fish. And a good selection of sides, (salad/fries/vegetables choices). One of the key things about the meal is that the fish is hand-battered right their at the restaurant. And it tasted wonderful.

We actually went here twice in the two days we were in Cold Lake and loved the food! also, it's nice to come here after a hot day at the beach and have an ice cream and sit on the patio overlooking the lake and marina. we'll come back again the next time we are in Cold Lake!
