Had the roast beef dinner. Just like mom’s. Followed up with date square ala mode. This meal made me think of family dinners long past and good times.

Great Covid precautions, besides that the food is amazing! We went out of our way to stop here. Fish and Chips were delicious and it came with a side coleslaw and bun. The fries were a little mushy this time but the size of the...fish and veggies filled us up no problem. Our waitress was great, always checking on us. Such a nice place and don't forget to grab a coconut cream pie on your way out.More

I did love cheese hamburgers at the kettle but this time, I ordered a cheese hamburger, it was a tiny little thing and the bun was hard as a rock and white on top, but I've already drove away, and didn't have the energy to...go back to complain but that was the worst Burger I ever had there, I haven't been back since not sure I want to right now but I do love their desserts and their chips were awesome.More

It would be nice if SOMETHING were available for vegetarians or vegans... one menu item even. Having the option of a garden salad is pretty poor. Get with the times kettles...

I noticed the parking lot was packed as I was heading up to Tobermory and on my way back to Toronto I stopped in for breakfast. It was outstanding. I had banana bread French toast (which is actually made from banana bread), sausage and tater...tots (they have multiple options for home fries). Everything was beyond what I expected. The staff are wonderful in every way. The food was not only delicious it was also beautifully presented. They even gave me a take-out container for the extra food I couldn't finish. I have the highest praise for how they follow COVID protocols as well. Support this excellent restaurant because they deserve your business and you deserve a great meal!More

We make this a destination stop when travelling in that area. Have been over four times. The staff is super friendly. The food is good. The portions are huge. My son loves their poutine. Decent price too.

Just average at best. BLT did not have nearly enough mayo. The bread was day old I'm sure. It just broke apart. Yuk. My husband liked his oktoberfest on a bun and the fries were good. Fry portion for one is enough for 3 people....Huge!More

On our way to Tobermory, we stopped by to have a quick lunch. The patio was full but we ordered take out. The pesto chicken sandwich and the buffalo chicken wrap were excellent! We chose the side salad and they were fresh and good portion...size. We liked it so much that we had it for dinner when we stayed at Owen Sound on our way back! Friendly staff and excellent home cooking food! We will definitely come back again when in the areas!More

Was recommended to us on our way home and loved it. Outdoor seating was nice the staff were great we got seated right away the was ready in no time and you get a lot of food for the price I had a dinner that...had a chicken breast and it tasted fresh best I ever had. The only complaint I had was on the menu it said kids ice cream added to meal was .99 and I was charged 2.49.More
