We were a party of 7 women, 5 of us being professional cooks and/or restauranteurs, thus nerveracking for any server. Our server was sweet, polite, and knowledgeable of their recently launched new menu. The mushroom soup and sandwich combo was spectular, as was the halibut and fries, and the veggie sandwich with humus was amazing. Every one of us thoroughly enjoyed our lunch, and was most impressed with their new menu, and as restauranteurs we are a tough group to impress, so we sent this info to the kitchen via our server....and we also appreciate that "real" food takes time to prepare. The price was appropriate for the quality and quantity of the meals, the beer was cold, the server great and the wait not long at all. We enjoyed our visit to the Village of Lakefield capped off with a fabulous lunch at the Thirsty Loon.

Basic establishment, food plain, could do better. Beer is good, but suggest you eat out further down the main road if you can find something open! - or stock up at Wallmart...LOL

We had a few drinks on patio before dinner and chatted with a two of the local people who were friendly and were proud of their little village. We moved inside the restaurant and ordered dinner. I ordered whitefish and instead of fries tried the cross-cut potatoes that were quite tasty. We found the food quite good.

I think the management should think about adding a few servers! The pub was overflowing and only two waitresses serving the food. It is your average pub fare - hamburgers, chicken fingers, wings, etc... but after waiting 25 minutes for a beer and then over an hour and still no food we had to leave. We did get a bowl of soup and that was very good but could not tell you what main course was like! We were not the only ones leaving and some people were even having a hard time paying!
