“Another perfectly fine (sigh) chain...”
Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

This place falls into the category of "fine to eat at any time" but it will not knock your socks off. Normal big chain fare (burgers, sandwiches etc) which was perfectly ok. Will I eat here again? Yes. Would I specifically make a trip to eat here? No.
The upside? Service was good and it was reasonably priced.
The downside? Indistinguishable from other similar family restaurants.

“Great atmosphere, good food, and excellent location”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

If your staying anywhere within 20 min distance of Port Carling, you must have dinner here...try to reserve a table on the patio before arrival.

“Very helpful staff”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

My family went to Turtle Jacks twice during a recent vacation in the area. We all have some dietary restrictions and our servers both times did their absolute best to accomodate us. It wasn't perfect each time but they made it right and we left with a very positive impression. Well done staff!

“Great food, awesome view!”
Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

We ate dinner on a Thursday night, out on the patio, which is the only place to sit, view was amazing, food delicious, very pricy I'm sure it's because of the wealthy clientele they get, but it's worth a meal!!

“Delicious food and great river view!”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

Great place to eat -- had a table overlooking the river; our server was super friendly (in a sincere way--not the fake friendly). Our appetizers and main courses were delicious! Will definitely go there again when back in Muskoka!
