Food was pretty good but not great. Server was just ok. Not worth the drive or the dollar. Atmosphere is more hustle and bustle than relaxed. Not returning. Loud and kind of chaotic really.

I am sorry but this review is totally untrue in multiple aspects, so I would like to clarify. The customer talked to a supervisor and she relayed the message to me. Upon hearing the complaint we pulled all burgers as a precautionary measure. The customer...More

We've lived in Guelph 10 years and have never known about this restaurant overlooking Puslinch Lake until our friends bought a mobile home and parked it nearby. What a great find! We went on $10 Hamburger night a couple of weeks ago and the weather...More

This is a gem by the lake, with a good pub type menu. It is busy, so go prepared to relax and enjoy a drink while you wait at the friendly bar for a table to be available. The food is tasty, and the service...More

I ama fan of that burnt cheese ring. It is so delicious in all it's artery clogging glory. The burger is a nice sized meal on it's own with a hint of meatloaf taste to it. The ring of cheese on the burger is superb...More
