Great. Such a beautiful area in eastern Canada. The scenery along the adjacent hiking trails are superb.

I spent Canadian Thanksgiving in 2017 at Spectacle Lake Lodge hiking with a group and enjoying wonderful meals at the Lodge itself. The hiking was great, despite the inclement weather. Our room was really comfy, and without hesitation, I would definitely go back.

Stopped for lunch on a weekday while travelling on Highway 60. We had smoked burgers and wings with a ceaser salad and soup of the day. We thoroughly enjoyed everything. Well worth the stop. Will return again.

We stopped here for lunch on a family vacation. We were the only ones in the place since it was early in the week and early afternoon. The chicken wings were awesome, not breaded and a wonderful honey garlic sauce. Our server was also excellent!

We did not expect such a terrific meal. Great presentation/plating, and really good food. Right at the edge of Spectacle Lake.
