“Another excellent restaurant from BW”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

We stopped here on our way home from Montreal in which we were very disappointed food wise. My wife had the chicken breast with blue cheese and I had the rack of lamb. Both dishes absolutely excellent. Portions were perfect and wonderfully spiced and plated. I have to say, we do a fair bit of traveling, and so far we have never been disappointed at any Best Western restaurant.

“Service good, food not so much”
Reviewed 30 July 2013


Had seen some good reviews for the Grape and Olive, so went for dinner when we were in Orillia. The room is very nice and the service was terrific!
However, the food was something else. We both had their special, which was a 3 course steak dinner. I think I can wrap up the dinner in one sentence. The last time I encountered anything that resembled what they served as steak was about 25 years ago at a Ponderosa steak house! Remember those? (And as I recall, it was better!)
