We have the poutine whenever we are in the area. Large quantities, you might just want to share. Owners are very friendly. Highly recommended if you are in Kearney.

Good food and friendly staff. The poutine is great, if I'm ever in the area again I will definitely go back for lunch.

Take out food with typical fast-food menu. We had fabulous ice cream (Kawartha Lakes). Outdoor tables, with water view. Good choice. Other patrons seemed to be enjoying the other fast-food items.

We ordered chicken strips and chips. Chips were great, but chicken strips were frozen strips semi fried.

Always quick, always delicious!!! My son (in the pic) was home from Valcartier. If the Cookhouse can feed him (a corporal in the CAF)they can feed anyone. Come out and enjoy what they have to offer, dessert included. All delicious and always timely!!

Everything is good. Great little spot for a quick pit stop on the way to the cottage or when you just don't feel like cooking. They have every BBQ sauce and topping you can think of. Great service and great people.
