Fantastic location right on a secluded lake. Had a delicious lunch on the patio on the lake edge while listening to the loons and Algonquin wildlife.

“Sunday Brunch not so special”
Reviewed April 29, 2012

At first glance, the food choices look promising. The omelletes made to order are the high point and are delicious. But Dr. Oz would not approve of many of the other items: deep fried eggrolls (tasteless and mostly batter with something indescribable inside), deep fried chicken balls (mostly batter, little chicken), perogies (dough with mashed potato and a little cheddar cheese, no other kinds), shepherd's pie (mainly mashed potato), battered fish again deep fried. No beef slices off the roast or any healthy chicken dish of note. At $17.95 each you expect better than this.

Brunch would be improved if there were less choices but better quality food and less deep fried items.
