Food was the same standard I would expect in a nice bar in Toronto. Unfortunately it costs the same, perhaps a bit more.. What you are paying for is the view though and that is pretty awesome!

Thank you for your review. Dining with a view of beautiful Lake Rosseau truly makes the experience!

Slow service, disappointing menu and a small patio. This is a Muskoka Resort overlooking the lake, and there are not many tables on the patio. Food is mediocre.

Great coffee, wonderful service and at the end of it all it was complimentary. We stopped in while boating on Lake Rosseau. Even enjoyed the ice cream on the way back to the boat. Loved the beautiful location!

View is spectacular, food is good and at an acceptable price point. Management is excellent...waitress we had was okay, but have certainly had worse. Six of us there for early dinner and to celebrate my father's birthday, after a boat ride on Lake Rosseau.

This is a first come, first served situation, and not a huge amount of space. If you come early, there is not a problem, however there can be an extremely long wait for a table as guests tend to stay on after finishing a meal.
