Great place to grab some burgers our waitress Sheylia was amazing with the service as we really enjoyed the vibe of this cook house. Not to be missed when in the area.

We ate here since we were visiting the wolf center. The restaurant is only open until 4 in the off season. They had good cream of mushroom soup and good sandwiches. Unfortunately no one told us that they now only open the Wolf Center on weekends. Please update your website. It's a long way to go just for lunch.

This is our second visit. Last time we were here was over a year ago. Well, The lunch food offerings was the same and nothing to speak of regarding the taste but when you are hungry and it is located nearby to the venue you want to take in, it works. It is still the closest restaurant in the area.... More

My family walked to the wolve centre, got caught in the rain and sweet tot the cook house for lunch....what a great surprise. Fish and chips delicious, tuna melt lovely but I thought the kids meals were overpriced.

Thought we would catch a quick evening meal. Patronized this place over 30+ years and this past Sunday was a disappointment. I ordered fish and chips with two pieces of haddock for $13.95, an iced tea for $1.99 and the wife ordered a cobb salad with chicken and the bill with tax came to $3.00. when asked by the waitress...

A great place to grab a snack or a dinner away from the cottage.....and only have a desert if you're hungry.

We simply attended to grab an ice crème cone....but enjoyed the large portion(s) we were served. We also bought a couple small souvenirs at this location. The rest of the property had minimal animals (a moose, 2 horses & some pigs). If there were other animals, we never saw them.

Being residents of the area, we recently decided to grab breakfast instead of messing our kitchen. As is often the case, at sometimes of the year, we were the only guests so service was immediate and the two young lads seemed to be happy for the distraction. We both had the eggs Benny and it was actually very good. While... More

We stayed at a nearby cottage and came down for a hike and stumbled across this little gem. The staff were extremely downtown earth and helpful. One evening we got the pizza and onion rings and the following day, fish & chips and chicken Cesar wrap. The restaurant is clean, and takeaway was timely! One evening I came it 10... More

Food was ok for a lunch but service was very poor. We waited a long time for our food and then our server seemed to just disappear. Don't eat there if you're in a hurry.
