It's become a tradition to have lunch on the veranda each year for fathers day.
The view never disappoints and the pitchers of sangria and sushi is always
wonderful.

The meal was outstanding.

The spacing between our ordering, appetizers, main course and desserts was very long. But we had lovely company and it’s a lovely spot.

Our waiter’s excuse for everything was it was his first official day, his third day on the job or he was just new. He was friendly but absent minded. And not overly attentive to details.

It’s a lovely restaurant, the food is amazing. We will be back.

The food was very good. Felt a little rushed to eat. No bread with the meal and waiter took a long time to return. The meals came quickly.

It was good - menu is a bit limited; would be great if they had some features. As it is, a bit tough to stay there for a few days and vary the entrees. Food quality is good a the service was decent. Would go back again.

We had three different options. My husband had the veggie rolls and completely enjoyed them. My mom found her caesar salad and did not enjoy the fact the lettuce came as a full piece and needed to be cut but did enjoy the taste. I had the fish tacos and unfortunatley the blackened pickerel was so blackened and dried out. I found I did not taste the fish, only the spice. I did not finish my meal. The staff was exceptional and prompt. I will return and try something else on the menu.

Great food, the only complaint is my husbands main came out about 10 -15 minutes before mine which wasn’t a problem as he ordered sushi. We started on the patio but the wasps became a problem and so the server happily moved us inside.

We were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary. Our waiter the first night was knowledgeable and friendly, we had a window seat and food was great. Saturday we ate at the pub outside, so again food was great as was the view.
Breakfast both days was really good, though the spinach had grit in it, so wasn't washed properly.
Also we both only drink cappuccinos and is was very disappointing that we weren't able to get one. You don't need a barrister or anything fancy you just need a milk frother and espresso machine
All in all we loved the food and our stay.

We enjoyed our dinner. Food and service were fantastic. And we love the lunches on the patio. My only thought would be that it seems pricier than its ever been and less choice on the evening menu. But very good food none the less.

Loved the classic Muskoka lodge feel overlooking the lake. Overall food experience was disappointing, especially for the price. Great Caesar Salad. Beer was not cold. Steak was bland and a bit tough. Chocolate cake was dry. And for a high class restaurant the coffee lacked. Did a similar meal two days later at Crossroads in Rosseau. So so much better and much less expensive.
