This is "the place" for lunch - maybe in September in Port Carling, it is the only place. We have never been to the area and had a hard time finding it - as it is tucked away in a small shopping area. We are glad we did. Service was great and the food - although typical "pub style" was... More

We have been to a few other Turtle Jack locations and I can say the service here is above the norm for chain restaurant. Beautifully located on the lake in the heart of Muskoka you would expect that prices here are double compared to Turtle Jacks in Burlington. Nope, pricing is quite reasonable. Service is excellent. Will come back here...... More

Great ambiance, on the water, truly enjoyable afternoon. The mojitos are quite good (eventhough I think they were from a premix bottle). The food was well was good, as expected for this type of restaurant. Sitting on the patio made up for any short comings on the menu

What you see is what you get. A large outdoor patio. Waterside. Lively pub-like, party atmosphere. Busy. Average food and beer menu.

Had lunch here on a Saturday in the Fall. It was very busy and loud with a fairly young crowd. It was raining so no one was seated outside. Reminded me of a sports bar. Despite the crowd, we were served promptly and the food came out without a long wait. I had a turkey sandwich and it was excellent.... More

This Restarant has a great location. It's right on the water. Watch the boats arrive while your having dinner or drinks. Turtle Jacks has a wonderful menu. Lots to choose from and taste delicious! You an eat inside or out. It' has a casual atmosphere with northern hospitality! Local shops are all near by as well. So it's worth your... More

Everybody flocks to this watering hole because of its strategic location on the main dock in Port Carling. The setting is great, a wonderful people/boat watching location. The outdoor patio is a comfortable spot, but the food is sub quality and service is uninspiring. I have been here a few times and ordered dinner. Both times, the meals for our... More

We stopped by on our way to the cottage. Great kids meals with drinks included. The pizza Margherita was excellent. Not a lot of cheese on the pizza, but the sauce was yummy by itself. Beautiful location on the water. Outside seating overlooking the lake. We really enjoyed the three cheese dip. It was served with naan bread and cheese.... More

We went Monday of labour day weekend before heading home. Our server wasn't friendly (however many others were). The pasta for my toddler was undercooked and the salad and chicken tacos with salad were to say the least very disappointing. It's a chain pub so we weren't expecting fine dining but certainly assumed better quality.

Turtle Jacks is a busy spot. The food is tasty and the service friendly and timely. The portions are moderate.
