    Beautiful setting and comfortable seating. The server was friendly and helpful. By the time we arrived, the buffet needed replenishment. The selection of salads was low and we had to ask for plates, cutlery, and soup/salad bowls.

    Server and service was good. First time we were disappointed with the food. There were 5 of us for Father’s Day brunch. Both beef and pork ribs very fatty, chicken dry, brisket not much flavour and pulled pork overwhelming with balsamic vinegar. We had to ask for salt and pepper and butter. Desserts mostly store bought. We would try again tho.

    We have been frequent Sunday buffet diners for awhile and always looked forward to excellent quality food. We were extremely disappointed that the father's day buffet was subpar to the regular buffet. By our reservation time everything was extremely picked over. There were several things that were no longer being served and it seemed like they were trying to stretch what was left to last longer (e.g. donuts from the dessert bar were cut into pieces, parfaits were made smaller...). The dessert bar is usually amazing with all fresh, made in house gourmet desserts, but this time it was definitely packaged goods. Extremely disappointed considering the father's day breakfast cost more than the usual one and we paid the same as those who had earlier reservations but got the left overs. Unfortunately we will not be returning after this experience.

    I drove two hours to get there to celebrate Father’s Day with my husband (and daughter who lives in Peterborough), and was very impressed. We got a great table with a nice view, the food was excellent (the eggs Benedict and French toast were outstanding) and they had a nice selection of different items. The restaurant itself was very cozy and the overall ambiance was perfect. The staff were extremely nice I noticed as well. I would 100% go there again for dinner when visiting our daughter and would highly recommend this place to others.

    Great experience. We did the buffet. It's expensive but the options they provide are worth it. Very welcoming staff. Good quick service. We sat on the patio. Live music started as we were leaving.

    They didn’t have a wine list. Kitchen was slow even though there was literally no one there. Food was okay but overpriced. And it’s definitely tired and needs an update.

    Disappointing after having dinned with Chemong Lodge for years. We knew it was under new owners, and more a BBQ joint now, but when I looked on the website, I saw lamb on the dinner menu, which was what we loved previously, so we thought we would try it. We were seated and accommodated well with a table, and an umbrella - which we appreciated. We received a menu and were surprised when it didn't match what we had seen online, so we asked. Our server stated that the menu was in the process of changing. She then went and grabbed the GM Jamie, who apologized but gave us a different story stating this was their first Sunday open for dinner in 6 months (no mention of this on the website, especially on the menu). I stated that it was quite unprofessional to not have the website match what you see in house, and that it was false advertising. He said he would comp our drinks if we decided to go elsewhere. The part owner then came over, slurring his words, very loudly stating that it was all over social media. We are pretty sure he was not sober. I have followed their Instagram for years, and I saw no such post. I also brought up the website on my phone to prove what I was seeing, which was the dinner menu, that only stated it was available after 4:30pm, no mention of certain days. If it had said Monday through Saturday, there would have been 0 issue, as we wouldn't have gone in the first place as we were after something specific. After getting 3 different stories, we made reservations elsewhere, and had the drinks we ordered. The server came with a receipt, stating we owed for the drinks, and gave us a snippy answer when we stated Jamie said he would comp. She later came back, and stated we are good to go. We found the whole situation unorganized and unprofessional. These new owners took an established restaurant and brand, and turned it into a poorly operated BBQ joint. The false advertising, and misleading content on their website will be the reason I will not return.
