We have been there quite a few times in the summer months and enjoyed the food, service and looking at the boats gathering to enter the lock!

I had their chicken wrap with house salad and it was very good and filling. Their menu has many choices and their sitting areas are varied. The staff are friendly and welcoming. If it's not busy inside, try and sit by the water side windows,...More

Server was happy and cheerful. Food was quickly served and hot. I do like the batter on the fish. The fries and coleslaw were a bit skimpy. The coffee was good. Price was fair. My issue was the men's room, it was smelly, that put...More

Great location. Busy in summer as not much else around and Buckhorn Lock. Food is not very good. Typical pub fare type stuff. Hamburger is awful

Visited with my family this past weekend and while the location is cute with a patio over looking the water, which is nice for a drink, the food is awful...not one of us had a decent meal.

A quiet spot by a lock on the lake system north of Peterborough this eatery had friendly and smart servers who offered to customize meal of each diner. The fresh fish a speciality and onion rings and fries served well. Cold beer on draft.

Maybe best fish not chips I have had...crusted in corn flakes...about ten ounces..with knockout view feels like you are key west..$15.00 is not cheap but this was worth every penny.with fries and coleslaw to compliment hard. To beat.

Rented a cottage nearby and thought we come one morning for breakfast. Great decision. Not a huge menu, but all the breakfast staples are there. Food came out quickly and tasted excellent. Presentation was also great if you’re into that. Home fries are to die...More
