Great food and fun spot! A little pricey but it is Port Carling! Can be a long wait for a table as it is really busy in the summer months. Outside patio overlooking the river is a great spot to sit.

While in Muskoka with family, including three small grandchildren, we stopped here for lunch on a Saturday after going to the market . I was pleasantly surprised!

We had a lovely lunch at this resto on the water prior to checking into the JW Marriott. It was excellent.

Had a very mediocre lunch at Turtle Jacks. Asked for a spicy ceasar but got a burn-your-mouth ceasar. My fish tacos were not good and I didn't finish them, my daughter's chicken wings were deep fried to the point of withering. I gave it 3 stars, instead of 2 as the location is 4-star.

Came in for lunch off the boat expecting a decent patio lunch. Although the restaurant seemed kind of busy and we were a table of 5 there's a difference between horrible service and busy service and this was horrible service. We had ordered a round of waters and a round of cocktails and our drinks took almost twenty minutes to... More

The staff were pretty good. The food very average. It was the end of the season on a Monday. Everything else was closed in the area.
