There are al ot of choices on the menu. We went for a quick bite to eat and had wings and fries. We had the secret sauce and it was pretty good. It was one of the few places that were open to eat on the main strip and some what busy. We would go back.

The town of Haliburton isn't that big and there aren't a lot of places to eat, especially in winter months. Having moved to the area about 1 1/2 years ago, McKecks Tap and Grill has become our "go to" place when in town. The staff are extremely friendly and attentive to your needs, and the deco has a warm, welcoming... More

Eat here! My daughter and I had dinner twice on the weekend we were in Halliburton and this place is an excellent local Roadhouse-style restaurant. Good food at a good price. And they remembered from our first visit that my daughter was there for a snowboard race and so they gave us a free slice of cake as congratulations to... More

Casual dressy atmosphere, well decorated, cozy too! Menu Definitely offers a variety of selections, both large and small. Family oriented restaurant. Set of steep and narrow stairs going up but sturdy handrails and treated risers. Good service and food. Moderate prices. Several large tvs. A bar. Outdoor balcony at back overlooking head lake. Access for sledders too.

Great atmosphere and service. Highly recommend ordering a Caesar. One of the best I've ever had. Had the pleasure of meeting Karen who happens to be a owner. Amazing. She even remembered our groups drink preference when we returned for lunch two days later. Excellent all round experience.

Stopped in for lunch during a snowmobile outing. The location is a very short walk from the lake where you can park your sled. They have a room that accomodates gear so you aren't crowded at your table. the restaurant is spaciious, servers are hospitable and helpful. Portions are just right and the food is well prepared. Lots of TV... More

McKecks handled our large group of 22 people at lunch on a Saturday in October with ease. Great soup of the day! Local beer on tap.

Came in on a Saturday mid afternoon so it wasn't busy. Place is nicely decorated for christmas and they have a gas fireplace which is a nice touch for the winter. During the summertime they have a patio with a great view but this wasn't the time of year to sit out there. You do have to climb 2 sets... More
