We have eaten at this restaurant many times but for some reason I keep forgetting to write a review. The only meal we haven't eaten at the Ash Grove is breakfast but if the food is anything like lunch or dinner, it would be delicious. We've been really impressed with the quality of the food at the Ash Grove. We've... More

My friend and I went to the Ash Grove Inn on October 16, 2016. We were driving from Brancroft up to Ottawa and decided to drive along that road, which by the way is beautiful. We started to feel angry a bit before Barry’s Bay and looked up on TripAdvisor to find a place to eat on our way. The... More

A visit back to the area after many years away, brought us to the Ash Grove Restaurant. What a treat! We had a visit with an old friend and the food enhanced the experience. Our server was friendly yet very professional. Our food was served in a timely manner. The atmosphere gave us a chance to visit without any hovering... More

We arrived hungry and cold after a canoe trip in Algonquin Park but were soon feeling a whole lot better. I had the Ash Grove Deluxe Hamburger and my wife the Roast Beef Special. Both were terrific and very reasonably priced. I wish there were more restaurants like this.

We were there on a motorcycle trip on the Highland Trails and stopped for dinner. Service was great, but the food was excellent! You have to try the deep fried cheese curds, they are to die for! If we are ever in the area again, we'll go again for sure!

Weather was spectacular, view from luxury suites are breathtakingly and food from Restaurant was fabulous. No complaints except I don't recommend Butterscotch Pie....It can't be homemade because it was orange colour like commercial Butterscotch Pudding in stores. I make homemade Butterscotch and it is beige. Anyway tasted like pudding or pudding mousse. It's edible but not what I expected.

I like The Ashgrove. It is sort of like a diner but better food and more creative choices. The menu is extensive-fish and chips, pasta, good salads and interesting appetizers. The sampler plate is a fun choice for a couple people to share. We were there with a large group including children and service was efficient and friendly.

We ate here last year and back again this year. Went twice this time. Good food and service. Limited menu but good. Sunday is brunch day with buffet. I recommend it and is reasonable price.
