This is my second review. My first was a few years ago. I have since been back numerous times and I absolutely love the food. Everything is made from scratch and the service is great. The soups and schnitzel sandwich is the best.

Calmari were overly battered, the club sandwich was not sufficiently toasted (still white!), and on white bread instead of what I had ordered (whole wheat). The bacon inside the club sandwich was ice cold, and under-cooked, I ended up pulling it out. Our other orders...More

Have eaten breakfast here twice in 2 weeks, traveling the Trent-Severn, delicious both times. Hard to choose among the tasty possibilities, but had to go with eggs Hemingway. French press coffee, great service, lots of flowers for a warm atmosphere, we will return!

Great atmosphere and some of the best pickerel that I have eaten. This has become our restaurant to take visitors to our cottage for dinner. Also interesting meals like Bison steaks, etc

Food was average, but couldn’t get past how dirty the interior is. The eclectic old tables and chairs are quaint, but its no excuse for the general condition of the interior.

We live in the area for about 50% of the Year. This is hands down one of our favorite restaurants. Always homemade meals. Have never had a bad meal here. Fantastic friendly staff. You can't go wrong!

An old house converted to restaurant. Beautiful food presentation on a old china plate. Apparently the hollandaise is home made. The potatoes were done up with onions and red and green peppers - not the boring plain one usually gets. I'd eat there again. Next...More

The food tastes good, but if they want to get more of family clientele I think they do need to clean the place better. That said, if they prefer to be more of a local drinking hole, then it works. We used to go almost... More
