This is an underwhelming restaurant. The food is hit and miss (more often miss). The ingredients must be relatively cheap or shortcuts be made - and it's a on the expensive side for what it is. It's partly compensated by a beautiful dining-room with a nice fireplace and ok service. To avoid in summer and try in winter when alternatives... More

If you eat on the Tavern side you only have a limited finger food type menu. (except for special of the day) Walk 20 paces to the restaurant side and you can have the full menu.( but no TV's to watch sports as you eat) Food was still good to eat.

Have had dinner here a couple times; the first time was not so bad with the waiter - he was friendly - our food took a little bit even though we were the only ones in the bar area. The second time - made us not want to go back - again we were the only people in the bar... More

We had 2 meals at this restaurant. The service was slow and the food was not good. My husband had the fish and chips (frozen type). My son had the wings, I think they just took them out of the oven; they were soggy. I had the Greek salad which was ok. The second time we had lasagna, it was... More

The portions are large and the service is attentive. The fireplace in the dining room is as large as it is impressive.

A very nice place to relax while waiting for your dinner! The huge fireplace gave a warm feeling to the room even when not being used. The daily fish platter. .freshly caught that day was very tasty. Prices are quite reasonable. We had a friendly waitress and service was very good.

Good hearty food with large servings. Not too pricey with dated but very cool surroundings. Kinda like eating at an old lodge. A true northern experience.

Came into town on a Sunday night and Wawa was a ghost town. The Motor Inn offered good enough food. My fiancé was able to find something other than a salad which is always good with her food allergies.

Stopped in on our way to and from a fishing trip. Perfect oasis along the way. Had New York Strip on the way up and Caesar Salad with Grilled Chicken on the way back. Steak was good and the Caesar's salad was excellent. Great coffee. Great facilities. Nice service.

Food was terrible and the service was even worse! Our waitress ignored us and lacked any skills in being a good waitress. She was rude, and made us feel unwelcome. One of our meals was brought out 10 minutes after. Unapologetic and literally dropped my food down onto the table. No excuse for her behaviour!

Thank dvo2016
