“Somehow one of the must expensive places to eat”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2013

I have moved to kirkland lake from down south and ate there a few times for the atmosphere. It didnt look like a northern ontario run down place. After trying the other places in town it was quick to realize how out of control the prices are for many of the items. A pitcher of beer is 6$ more then anywhere else in town.

We ate there for a retirement party and i got a 23$ half chicken plate. Chicken was overcooked and served with a terrible baked potatoe and a few veggies.

Many other places to eat in town then here. Best part is Subway is rated higher then here and KFC is just below.

“Tasty road house fare”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2012

Standard roadhouse fare. Food was tasty. Had the panzerotto which was tasty. Salad was great. Someone else had the chicken wrap which was delicious. Everyone seemed fairly happy with their meals. Very friendly servers. I heard it's one of the better restaurants/pubs in town from some locals.

“Good vegetarian options”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2012

On a business trip, my co-workers and I ended up eating here two times as they had several vegetarian option. My co-worker loved the veggie burger, and said it was so good it tasted like real meat. The veggie wrap was decent as well. The salmon and the stir-fry fell short. The decor in this place also needs a major overhaul.

“I've had some really great food here, sometimes”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2012

Again, this is a place that can be hit or miss, depending on the wait staff and the chef. Sometimes the food is just phenomenal, and other times it's dry or undercooked (like a hamburger we once ordered that was fully pink in the middle - it had been asked to be well-done) The wait staff, depending on who is on, can be really really inattentive to customers. One time we were in there and the only customers in the whole place. The waitress spent most of her time talking to one customer at the bar, and playing with her phone. We had wanted something additional brought to the table during our meal but didn't see her until the end of it. Disappointing for sure. Other times, however, you'll get a sweet girl who just wants to make sure your experience is pleasant. A staff change-over would make the biggest difference I think!
