A great year round waterfront restaurant. We are adjacent to local marina with fantstic view of lake muskoka. . Patio-Restaurant-Lounge.. Lunch and dinner are served in a quaint but causal atmosphere. We cook from scratch and our Menus change weekly . Our meals can take approximately 30 min to arrive to your table. We encourage you to relax and unwind have a glass of wine enjoy your surroundings . We do stand firm on our policy of lat seating is a 1/2 hour before before close. We do lock our doors shortly there after to ensure everyone enjoys there dining experience. Please as a safety measure bring being rural we on occasion lose internet and our debit goes down.

Ordered the gourmet burger and was incredibly good, it comes with onion rings and I usually don’t like onion rings but these were the best onion rings I ever had. The service was exceptional, and the owner was an absolute delight. A Gravenhurst gem.
