My husband, little son, and I were driving back to Manitoulin Island from a day trip to Sudbury and thought we'd stop off in Little Current to pop into Manitoulin Brewery as we wanted to try their craft beer, and grab some pizzas at nearby 3 Cows and a Cone for dinner. It was pouring rain and perhaps I didn't fully understand the wet menu they had left outside on the sandwich board for people to look at but I initially just wanted to order some pizza slices and sides. I didn't initially understand that the "Special Slice" is a daily special which, that day, was Hawaiian. The only other pizza you could get by the slice was pepperoni and cheese. So I ordered 2 entire pizzas so my vegetarian husband could have something without meat, and I ordered a pepperoni and cheese pizza for my little son and I to share. The pizzas were huge, loaded with toppings, and quite tasty. My husband loved the fried pickles. We just didn't realize the "20 min" wait would end up to be almost 50-55 mins while sitting in our car in the rain, with the window down listening for our order number to be called out the door. Thankfully I had gotten my hungry husband and son a couple of very yummy milkshakes so they were in a relatively good mood. Now I understand that it might be a difficult time due to COVID-19, so take what I've written with a grain of salt. The employees seemed very nice, competent, and friendly. But not sure I would go back, although the place seemed very busy.

I stopped into 3 Cows and a Cone to order a burger, waited in line a while, then overheard the cashier say that orders would be 20 minutes or so. (Prices were not cheap!) Choosing not to wait, I went over their chip wagon where there was no line up. I ordered 2 pieces of fish with fries for $20.45 plus tax. Although this is an average price for a sit-down restaurant in the area, I would have expected a lower price for a take-out stand which has little overhead. After I paid, I casually asked how long it would take and was told 20 minutes! Ok, it's nice to know they do things fresh (?) but I would not have ordered had I known the meal would take that long. And ther were no orders in front of me! I got the meal and enjoyed it very much. The portion was way too big and fries portion was out of control. I could not eat it all, which is not like me. Why not charge a little less and provide more "normal" size portions? It makes no sense. Overall, beware of time delays in both places, the store and the chip wagon, at least in this, their peak tourist season. I don't know if the delays are historically common or if they are related to the current labour shortage. Or if possible, order ahead and just pick up - not as much fun, but less frustrating.

Stopped here for lunch after a day of hiking on Manitoulin based on the recommendations of a friend. My wife and I each had burger combos, the food was a little above average. Very fresh and hot. Service was a bit slow and I had to go and ask about our order after about 20 minutes...turns out that the server at the window had forgotten which pager number we were given. Overall, it was a good, quick lunch.

The employees do not know their own menu and charged me $5 for a hot chocolate that was meant to be a frozen hot chocolate. I burnt my mouth expecting a frozen drink. Argued with me when I tried to explain it to them as I have ordered it before. Would not refund me.

Ok, where to start, ordered 2 poutine and 1 PC of fish. The fish was thin, overcooked, small and for 8.99 way overpriced, but the poutine take the cake on the worst poutine I've ever had. The gravy, if you can call it that, was as thin as water and tasteless, it just pooled in the bottom of the container and sloshed around not even covering the fries in any gravy. Then the cheese curd was minimal at best and in large 1 in chunks, in the large double double poutine there was 5-6pcs. And finally the fries were undercooked and very starchy, probably never rinsed of any starch and not precooked just flash fried. Just so disappointed and we were very much looking forward to this place,on our trip.

The food is not what they advertise, and much less or non-existent. It was a place for us to get frozen yogurt, as listed in the menu. However, they have become too excited to not serve it any more, the worker said it was too hard to make, and they don’t like to make the extra effort for the regular customer, like us. I guess but I’ll stop elsewhere.

Had a slice of pizza and chicken fingers & fries with a side of gravy, no drinks. $26. Overpriced. Fries were disgusting (greasy, burned & mangled), 4 chicken fingers were basic. Pizza slice was cold. Chicken fingers come with plum sauce. I asked for ranch, the girl says (with an attitude) that it's an extra $1, while I can see a huge squeeze bottle of ranch sauce on the counter. We had planned to get ice cream too but they don't deserve our business so we'll get our ice cream elsewhere :-)

We planned ahead to have lunch here on our visit to the island. Due to COVD-19 you can’t go inside the restaurant side of the building. You have to order at the window, they give you a buzzer, and you wait in your car, until the buzzer goes off. I ordered a sub, which was quite tasty. I also ordered a float, so I had to go inside the ice cream side of the building to choose the ice cream and pop. I had the Dr Pepper with some yummy ice cream, likely moose tracks. Delicious! Definitely worth a stop here!

Took a pizza to eat in the local park. First non-chain we'd had in a while. Kind of pricey, but more than we could eat. Unusual for Hawaiian to include pepperoni. A few trips for ice cream too.

On a bus tour trip, our hotel was right next to this place. We were told it’s a must. My sister had a single cone flavour Algonquin canoe-hints of caramel. I had the Big Foot single cone, vanilla with mini peanut butter cups. They were yummy. Food is also served here. If our bus trip hadn’t included meals, I would’ve definitely tried something on the menu.

Deluxe Pizza. June 12 2023 5:30 pm. The first two pizzas were delicious. The third was not even like the same pizza anymore. Didn’t look like it and it didn’t taste like it. It was bad.

If I could give a 0 I would most definitely give a 0. Got told that it was the customers fault that they got overcharged for ice cream cones. When I spoke to manager Carrie she refused to make it right. She is willfully and unlawfully taking advantage of people who may not know how to speqk up. She refused me service today and that establishment will never see another penny of my money.

Walked to the restaurant from our hotel. It is obviously popular with locals and tourists. We had ice cream cones. Lots of flavour options...some were a blast from the past (bubblegum, tiger).
