This was without a doubt one of the rudest places I've ever been.we went in because it looked great..on the water great view..but from the moment we walked in it went downhill..it was so hot in the restaurant that we decided to sit outside.( no air conditioning)..once out there the girl,(seemed about 11 years old)..served us..we asked for water..it came...

The food is Amazing I'm so happy they changed it up a little it was good food before and now.I have been coming here for years and I understand completely why they changed it. I think it is best for what she is going through she has only a bit of staff but still how they do it is crazy... More

We went here last year and the atmosphere and food was great. Now they got rid of the old bar and added a convenience store. Menu is limited with no pub grub that you would expect. 45 minutes to get our food with only one other table in the, restaurant?? Panini was plain, and my wife's noodle dish tasted funny.... More

We were looking forward to stopping on the way to Haliburton.. We pulled up at 12 and not a car in the lot.. Bad sign... The lady rushed out and cut some flowers and we went in.. The restaurant is totally changed and the menu there was nothing that looked good. We left.. Too bad it changed

We bookec an extended family lunch and could not have had a better time. Service very friendly. Food took a while to come but was well worth the wait. All home prepared and cooked, you could taste that too. Good selection of drinks available. Worth making time to give a try

stopped by this place by boat while staying at another location last month. This time we went up decided to stay there and believe me you wont find nicer people or a more relaxed place to stay. and very affordable.

It's nice to boat up the Kushog, and have dinner on the lake. Food is average as best. It seems teen to 20's maybe like a little better...inexpensive.
