Moose Jaw Junction has been around for a long time in various iterations and has the photos on the wall to show the journey. We used to snowmobile near here in the 80's and it was a beer and a burger place. We get back a couple times a year these days. We had lunch here today and the beer... More

We visit Cross Village twice a year to visit with family and this is the restaurant we always eat at together. Dad gets his usual and he always like it. I love that they have porters and stouts on tap to go with my clan basket or fish and chips. Meatloaf special is great when they have it. Fish tacos... More

You cannot believe the number of people waiting for a table at this remote place. There, literally, is nothing out there. REALLY busy during snowmobiling/skiing season. Fish fry is popular. I like the grilled fish. They call it Lark's Lake lobster. Good beer on tap. The last time, my wife's fried fish was a little wet and mushy, But that... More

I've lived within 30 minutes of this restaurant for 25 years now. This is only the 2nd time I've eaten here because we can never get through the door! It's THAT GREAT! The fish and chips are well worth waiting for. The best I've ever had! The staff is wonderful as well.

Came in on a Friday night. The place was packed... Waited 20mins for a table. Everyone was there for the Friday night fish fry. Half of our group ordered the all you can eat fish, the all said it was excellent and I followed our servers recommendations and tried the Fajitas (because I am not a fish fan). Our server... More

We come here to eat often. My daughter lives in IL and always comes to visit me for two weeks during the summer. She always makes sure her plans cover 2 Fridays so that we can eat at MooseJaw. It is the best fish ever. I always hear people talking about everything on the menu that is so good, but... More

Well run family restaurant that does a great job. Pub Fare and them some served in huge portions. Large sandwiches and superb Mexican specialties. The Friday night all you can eat fish fry is some of the best you can find. Parking lot will be packed on that night and you will probably wait for a table, but it's a... More

We landed here on a lark and are happy that we did. We had a group of 10 on a riding vacation and were looking for a place to eat. Called them with a 15 minute notice and they seated us right away and were all very friendly and polite. Our server was wonderful. Everyone ordered something different but the... More

We stopped in for lunch on a weekday recently. It was quiet when we arrived but got busier as the afternoon progressed. The beer selection is ok; there are a handful of drafts. The menu is of the expanded pub food variety. There is a daily special. As seems to happen to us fairly often, the kitchen made a mistake... More

Just happen to see a sign for this place as we were traveling south on 31 from Macinaw City so we decided to turn and give it a try. It seems to be in the middle of nowhere but it sure pasted the parking lot test. We waited 30-35 minutes,but wait was fun too. Everyone was telling us what was... More
