When our daughters & their families are visiting our Falcon Lake cottage, their favorite choice for ‘eating out’ is the Nighthawk. Just met friends there in June 2022 & we certainly not disappointed! Excellent food, great service & we love the screened in patio!! The...ice cream takeout stand is always a ‘dessert’ favorite with so many choices for every taste.More

We came here after a long day of hiking for dinner. We tried the peanut butter burger - AMAZING. They also had outdoor seating available which was great as we were less than fresh after hiking all day. I also love that they offer veggie...options for all their burgers, bravo Nite Hawk Cafe!!!! I would come back here again.More

We arrived at the Nite Hawk Cafe for Thursday Steak night at 5pm. When taking drink orders, the waitress had “never heard of” a beer that was listed on the drink menu, not a good sign of things to come. When placing my steak order,...I was informed that Steak Night did not start until 5:30pm. Under pressure to order something else, I order the Fish and Chips. The Fish was incredibly over cooked and over battered and was possibly the worse fish and chips I had ever had. The chips were also dry and overcooked leading me to think that the cook had fallen asleep at the deep fryer. Then instead of asking if I would like another beer, the waitress dropped off the bill while my wife was half way done her meal. She did enjoy her salad, apart from feeling rushed to finish despite the dining room being mostly empty. Perhaps they were getting ready for the big Steak Night rush? LOL. A terrible dining experience.More

Extensive menu. Ordered a Reuben dog, very flavourless, could barely taste any sauce. Homemade fries looked so good, but were rather bland and unseasoned. Very disappointing Family member ordered poutine, also bland, and used shredded yellow cheddar, Which was mentioned in the menu, but we...should have known better. White sangria was not good. Tasted like wine and club soda. Came with a wedge of lemon and a wedge of lime in it. Was expecting a refreshing beverage but again was disappointed. Ordered a kids meal with veggies and was given fries instead. I had to get up and ask for the drink, it was Not Brought to the table Ordered ice cream after the meal, there was no one else in line but they didn’t make the cone when ordered. They proceeded to do other things in the kitchen. I had to ask for it. Seems disorganized. I wouldn’t return.More

My family and I were in the midst of a long drive when we looked up places to eat. The Nite Hawk Cafe came up and it had great reviews so we decided to get off the main highway and give it a try. Upon...arrival we witnessed a happening place with an amazing vibe. There was a takeout option and a dine in option. We chose to dine in and were put on a short waiting list.... (we waited about 20 minutes). Collectively, we ordered burgers, fries and a Greek salad. All were terrific but the burgers were truly memorable. Homemade and absolutely delicious. Highly recommend.More

We have dined here in the past, all meals have been great but this was the first breakfast to be had for us at the Nite Hawk. Dish one was an enormous breakfast sandwich with 2 eggs, bacon, lettuce, cheese, etc. Fantastic. The other dish...was a beautifully prepared veggie omelette, feta, spinach and assorted peppers all in the right proportions expertly cooked and presented with rye toast and condiments. Beautiful quiet location on the patio, free parking to enjoy the nature trail after or before the meal. Great serving staff, cleaned tables and chairs after each diner left, what more can I say other than we will be back.More

We packed up the kayaks and drove 400 kilometres to venture out on nearby Caddy Lake to see the tunnels. We drove past the Nite Hawk Cafe on our way through West Hawk and noticed their expansive, screened-in patio. Following our time on the water...we were ready for a very late lunch and our group of three headed for the ‘NHC’. The name is a little misleading as this is no small cafe but a large restaurant with a drive-in window. They are easy to find at the major intersection in town. They have a very large parking lot which can accommodate your boat easily. We entered the restaurant and were greeted by a friendly hostess who seated us on their patio. While the washrooms and inside seating could use an overhaul the patio is immaculately clean, bright and airy. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive while not bothersome. When asked for a recommendation he quickly came up with a couple of ideas. We ordered burgers, all different, with fries and coleslaw. The food came out quickly and looked fantastic. Everything tasted wonderful and the portions were large. Their burgers with a side and coleslaw cost under $20 and, given the quality and quantity, were a good value. We would definitely return to the Nite Hawk Cafe on our next visit to the area.More

Excellent Food and fast service. The serving staff move at light speed! We came on both Tuesday, (for the Ribs) and Thursday (for the Steak) Yummy! They defiantly had the tables laid out for social distancing. The Tuesday night ribs were tasty, had a bit...of a sweet n sour taste to them. The Thursday night steak was done to perfection. The prices were decent considering the size of the Caesar Salad that came with the meal. Oh...the homemade strawberry rhubarb pie was excellent! Well done Ladies!More

Great food. Fairly fast service. Picnic tables by parking area allow for physical distancing. But people lingering at order deck do not.

The Nite Hawk is one of my favourite restaurants, not just in the Whiteshell, but in Manitoba. Located in West Hawk Lake, it’s a convenient place to enjoy lunch or dinner while camping or hiking in the area. I recently visited during the first week...of July and enjoyed their delicious Beyond Burger with a side of French Fries on a gluten free bun. Everything tasted fantastic! Their fries are among the best I’ve eaten and were so perfectly cooked. The burger was also amazing and the gluten free bun was so soft. The service is always friendly and prompt. They have seating inside in the nice air conditioning and on the covered screened in patio. The menu is extensive and offers lots of options for vegetarians/vegans/gluten free and these are marked. Their cactus cuts fries are also incredible! I will continue to frequent this restaurant on my travels to the Whiteshell! Always look forward to coming here.More

This was our first visit, and we will definitely go back!! The burgers are gourmet! We tried bacon mushroom burger, with real cheese and my husband described it as A “tastebud flavour explosion!” I tried something new-Peanut butter bacon burger with homemade chipotle mayo and...I loved every drippy, messy bite of it. Onion rings were perfect. Strawberry milkshake made with real ice cream and fresh fruit. The toasted cinnamon buns are a nice sweet to treat.More
