Great place to take tourists because it is so authentically North American with animal heads mounted on the wall and the log cabin decor! Great place to go for a very very cheap breakfast. Staff are as warm and that toasty log fire they always have blazing!

This restaurant looks a bit cliche on the outside, but is awesome when it comes to food! Their breakfasts are amazing and have hearty and home cooked feel. They have more of a traditional menu, but do it well. They are food allergy safe and take extra precautions. Yes, worth trying out!

Pioneer House was a great stop for a dinner with family last Friday evening. My son chose the Butter Chicken Poutine, my husband the Chicken and Waffle and I had Tortilla Soup. All meals were delicious and plentiful. There was a large selection of healthy Gluten Free options for me to choose from.

A good spot on the highway for a basic meal. Funky log house atmosphere. The menu has some variety and good choices. Crab cakes and salad was good. Breakfast is very popular. Staff are friendly.

We went for dinner on Oct 14/16. chalk board advertised turkey dinner with all the trimmings, stuffing, cranberries etc. Sounded delicious so we foolishly ordered it. The turkey was big hunks of tough white & dark meat on cubes of plain white bread. When I tried to cut the meat, I was afraid it would end up on the new... More

Decided not to cook for Thanksgiving, so made a reservation at the Pioneer House. Best idea in a long time. The authentic log building, the most impressive bar and the generally laid back atmosphere put us at ease right away. The Pioneer House was offering a special turkey dinner with stuffing (delicious) mashed potatoes (melt in your mouth), tasty gravy,... More

I have never had a bad experience at the Pioneer House. The service has always been excellent, relaxed and helpful. It is a fun place to eat; families, great for lunch with friends (they don't seem to mind if you spend two hours talking after you have eaten, if the restaurant isn't full.

Visited here on a recent Sunday for a late breakfast/brunch with a large party(12) adults and children, did not have to wait long for seating, everyone got menus and water right away, drink orders took a little bit longer, naturally for the size of our group. Food orders taken and delivered in a timely fashion, no mix ups or orders... More
