The Crows Nest Lodge is the only sit down restaurant for about 40kms in the area. However the food is amazing and so are the staff. We ate there on a Tuesday evening and it was packed with people from the cottages and the provincial...park as well as locals. If you are anywhere near Restoule I would highly recommend this little gem of a restaurant.More

Amazing little treasure of a place!!! We stopped here for ice cream twice on a recent stay at Restoule Provincial Park and it was amazing! Beautiful and peaceful location, amazing choice of ice cream flavours, and super-friendly customer service. The gentleman who served us was...friendly, chatty and just an all around nice man! Didn’t get a chance to try the other food but I’ve heard great things! Highly recommend.More

The couple at this restaurant couldn’t be sweeter! Great service, generous servings for ice cream and a DELICIOUS Caesar salad!!! Definitely a restaurant / motel to support up this way!

Attended with friends for lunch on a Saturday in early October. Mike and Laura are super friendly owner/operators of this place. We both started with the soup of the day ($6.99 X2) which was a Beef Vegetable Soup and we both thought it was okay....My partner then went with the Caesar Salad ($10.99) which clearly has a homemade dressing and was excellent and a decent portion. I chose to try their Chicken Parmigian on a Bun ($16.99) and it tasted excellent, I was very impressed and would highly recommend it. This is a friendly place with food that they take great pride in serving. If you are in the area it is well worth trying out.More

Hi Laura and Mike. Ben and I enjoyed our meal and visit with you. What spices did you put in your balsamic dressing.

The food is good, BUT... service was pretty slow considering there were only 4 tables occupied. And this guy (I assume the owner) was standing at a table of guests he obviously knew, talking very loudly about everything you could imagine, including bad mouthing other...local businesses. It was like he wanted everyone else to hear this. Very unprofessional and for this reason alone I will never go back.More

We had great trouble trying to book a overnight stay Jan. 26 2019. Another establishment recommended to try the Crows Nest. We called and booked our one night stay. We had no idea what we were booking but were we ever surprised and impressed. The...owners are extremely friendly and accommodating. Sled parking is secure with easy enterence to the rooms. We were pleasantly surprised how up to date and clean the rooms are. Coffee maker loaded and ready is such a added touch. The restaurant is a family environment with great food and choices. Beers are reasonably priced which was nice. I am definitely looking forward to coming back this summer and explore Restoule in the summer seasons.More

Good place to eat breakfast on a rainy day of camping. We go here every year and the food is always good. The owner is nice and helpful and the area is beautiful.

My wife and I dropped by for a dinner out. We both enjoyed our meals -- pan fried walleye and home made burger. The service was excellent - friendly and attentive. The desert was nice- apple crisp. The apples tasted a little processed like canned...filling, but overall it was good. The only disappointment was a cup of coffee that tasted hours old. We were ready to go when I ordered it and it was close to closing time or i would have complained-BUT it should have never been served in the first place. Over all we enjoyed it and will bring friends or family back for a visit.More

With the only restaurant in town we were a little skeptical, but with all the cars there it must be good, so we tried it. We were not disapointed at all. The service was very good and the staff and the owners were very friendly....The food was very well prepared and portions were excellent. You have to try their fresh pickerel and or fish and chips. We noticed the table next to us had wings, they looked very good as well and were very meaty. All and all we were very happy with our supper and enjoyed the scenery on the deck while eating. We would return for sure and have no problems recommending this to anyone going to restoule.More

We live in Sundridge about 45 minutes from the Crowsnest, we had been by a few times, we decided to try a different place than the local onethis evening. Our mistake was to choose a Friday night, extremely busy, but friendly courteous people. 1/4 rack...of ribs for me, chicken parm for my wife. It was a bit of a wait due to how busy they were. The food was definitely worth the wait, excellent portions and well prepared. It was actually rewarding to be able to sit and talk with my wife over a cold one while waiting. I am partially disabled with a prothesis, they did everything they could to make our visit comfortable which I appreciated. We will return for sure on a weeknight.More

After passing this restaurant many times and promising ourselves that we would go in and try a dinner there, we finally did! We were so pleased with the great food, the friendly and informative staff/owner, and the cozy atmosphere. I had the best fish and...chips that I have had in a very long time and my spouse enjoyed the hot roast beef dinner very much! We are going back very soon to celebrate a birthday. We highly recommend this restaurant!More

My parents and I spent a night here after our tent got soaked and we bailed on camping at a nearby provincial park. Best shower of my life! Owners were lovely and the room was perfect. Not to mention the food at the restaurant was...great. I'll be going back again and would recommend it to anyone!More
