great view; terrible food and service This restaurant is bad; there are only three or four options on the menu, principal among them are greasy burgers. .Years ago it was ok; now its terrible. The service is very slow too.Its also overpriced. they have a...captive clientele there at the hotel - this restaurant would not be in business anywhere else.More

We are staying at this hotel during the 2022 Canada Day Long Weekend. The property itself is a gem. The food quality at restaurant/s onsite were average at best, with outrageous prices. Be prepared to spend an additional 25-40% mark-up on all food at this...hotel, which is subpar at best.More

We recently dined in the patio at Windermere House, overlooking the lake. The staff were excellent both during seating and our meals. Enjoyed Miso Soup and Sushi Rolls. Everything was delicious and came out in a timely manner. We do not wish to dine inside...at this time so this was a lovely afternoon out. Thank you!More

We only dined at the Windermere...we had looked at staying there, but it seemed too stuffy and dated--like the resort out of Micheal Ondaatje's Skin of an Lion...exactly. A place out of time. Not for us. We chose the Baldwin's Resort down the lane instead....We were delighted.More

I have not been to the pub in over 5 years. I used to frequent this establishment regularly but the quality has gone down while the prices have gone up. Had the fish and chips tonight a they were garbage. They food tasted like it...had been left in the rain. When is ownership/management going to do something about this place. You can’t consistently provide the poor quality of food that you have. Judging by A majority of the reviews I am not the only one who feels the same way!More

Went for lunch with another couple. Had fish and chips. Chef more interested in presentation over practically. Served on a very narrow board. When cut the fish half of it fell on the table with the sauce upside down. Don’t know how clean the table...was so made the meal very unappetizing. The food was way over priced for pub fare. My wife had a latte and it was more expensive than my beer. The others said their meat was tough and dry. I would not recommend this pub to anyone. The only positive was that the waitress was excellent.More

Typical pub food served by friendly wait staff, primarily students working here for the summer. Great patio location

The fries are soggy and tasteless. This pub has a very limited menu and there is just no excuse for such awful french fries. The menu is in fact too limited. The only hamburger option is a double patty with bacon and cheese. The cobb...salad was ok, but the dressing was overly thick and tasteless. The fried calamari was underdone and tasteless. We have been coming here regularly over the past 15 years and the food in the last couple of years has been very disappointing. The service was very friendly, but it took 45 minutes for our food to arrive.More

We enjoyed delicious food and drinks the night before our daughter’s wedding. Delicious, freshly prepared with so many locally prepared dishes!

Stopped in here for a sandwich and a cold beer after our round of golf. Nice place for families ( with kids too!) and golfers. Great shaded are as well as tables in the sun overlooking the 18th green. Nice simple menu, friendly staff and...excellent food - overall a really good deal to be had here. Thanks for making our short stay so great!More

Lovely review! We believe you are talking about Windermere Golf & Country Club located across the street from our resort. Our neighbours are wonderful and don't doubt the excellent service!
