We stopped here last minute to feed our hungry kids. They asked for Covid certs but the woman didn’t know that J&J vaccine was a single dose so we had to wait 5 min for the manager with hungry kids…he cleared us. The service was...very good and our family enjoyed the food and drinks. I liked the wings but found the ribs average. The in house stout was good.More

I have tried just about every item on the menu,& they are all very good, so I tend to choose something from the specials menu. Unfortunately, the one I would have liked was unavailable due to high demand. I settled of the Calamari, excellent!!, I...had the Muskoka Detour & the Bobcagen Hazy IP as sides, it's about the food+ale+service & this place has 100% of each The staff is fantastic, they don't just drop the plate, they really do care if you have enjoyed the meal, they are attentive & provide the best service.More

Great place to eat, the strongman sandwich was great and filling(schnitzel sandwich), came with fresh cut fries and instead of ketchup they provided a tasty curry dip, calamari appetizer was great, friends had steak frites and raved about it. Great service loved the outdoor nooks....Prices are more than reasonable. Vast amount of beer choices. Going to be a go to restaurant when visitingMore

This place had great food — basically pub food but with a little bit extra. For example, the ribs were “pork belly ribs”, extra tender and delicious. The shepherd’s pie was mashed sweet potato and regular potato together over wine-braised beef. The calamari was tender,...perfectly done, with just the right amount of breading. Enjoyable meal all round.More

This is the MUST eat place! Whether you’re looking for breakfast, lunch, or dinner you HAVE to eat here. The staff are friendly and attentive! They have great recommendations and excellent selection of drinks. The atmosphere can’t be topped! In the winter it’s cozy and...rustic with the fireplace as an additional touch. In the summer the patio is perfect!! They even added heat lamps to individualized patios during COVID!! The bourbon cream gnocchi or Greek burger are my favourite for dinner!! Joes hot cheese pot or corn bruschetta for appetizer, the charred corn is a interesting and delicious twist on a classic. For breakfast the French toast with caramel iced pears and Brie is fabulous if you’re looking for something a little sweet but not overwhelming. The eggs Benny is excellent for a more savoury breakfast option. They also have specials that will knock your socks off!More

First time here and won't be the last. My wife and I were joined by friends for breakfast. Coffee is the best I've tasted in a while. Nice decor, very clean. Had the Betty's skillet with maple sausage and pulled pork. Amazing 👏
