“Pleasently surprised! GREAT FOOD! and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

Definitely a country atmosphere everyone knows everyone but felt welcome! My husband had the steak it was done to perfection I had fettucine alfredo which is made fresh to order. Server was super friendly and fast service. Had to wait a little bit for food but it was definitely worth it! The only thing we could complain about is that the cesar salad was a little salty... that was weird but overall great service food and prices!!! Definitely a local spot for those who live out there

“Great Value, Consistant Quality, Lots of Choices!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

This is one of my favourite places to eat in Haliburton. Steaks are better than the Keg in Toronto but the ribs are my favourite. Their Scallop Martini appetizer is amazing. There are enough changes to the menu in the form of specials that keep the dining experience fresh and enjoyable. They also offer 'senior's portion' sizes as well as a children's menu. The wine list is varied and new wines are featured monthly at reasonable prices. The service is good but can be slow when they are busy. It is my 'go to' place when I want a good meal in nice surroundings, with friendly staff at a price that is reasonable. Note - it is a popular spot that only takes reservations up until 6 pm so go before six or wait until after 7 for the first rush to be over. The parking lot is full for a reason.

“Nothing to make me want to return”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

Average to below-average food, with ABOVE average prices. Sometimes very busy at this restaurant, and I can't for the life of me understand why. Nothing interesting ... nothing creative ... nothing you haven't eaten a hundred times somewhere else, and enjoyed it more. Sadly, it's beyond time for a restaurant makeover here!

“Friday Night Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

My husband and I had calamari to start and had a generous portion. We both steaks which were tender, very well seasoned and cooked to perfection. We were too full to indulge in dessert. The menu is extensive so a lot to choose from including the specials. I would certainly go back and try one of the homemade pasta's next time.
