Uuuuuuugh. This wasn’t a pleasant experience at all. I will never eat there again. The food was horrid, the staff (that we dealt with) was like something from another planet. Not good at all

Went to the Mad Musher because it was the nearest restaurant open which was near our B&B in Whitby. We were promptly greeted and seated (but at the back room) rather than the main dining hall (which had vacant tables). The back room was short...More

After a days walking in the Algonquin National Park this was a welcome pit stop. Good pub grub in dated, but authentic surroundings. Service was efficient and friendly and the menu was varied with something for everyone.
