“Beautiful views”
Reviewed 10 June 2013

We spent a morning up in Wakefiled for our first time ever as a couples get away. We ran into some locals at the covered bridge who told us how nice breakfast is at the Chamberlain's lookout. We actually went in through the general store, we didn't know here was also a separate entrance. The patio was lovely, although it was hot and we added an umbrella to our table, it wasn't very helpful. The canapé that covered initial part of the outdoor patio was far more cooler in the heat. We each went for an omelette which were unique and tasty. Coffee was extra but very good too. Some people were walking the tracks below and a lady chatting at the table next to us, and you can clearly make out their conversation so not so private...if that's what you are going for.

“Quality”
Reviewed 20 April 2013

Having had the opportunity to try this fast food smoked meat palace, I was not disappointed with the whole experience. The smoked meat is fresh cut out of a steamer, that keeps it hot and thin sliced, with your choice of lean or with a degree of fat with it. No fat smoked meat carries a slight additional charge of approximately $2:00 Cad. per sandwich. They also sell grape soda in a can and choice of mustards. Great on a hot summer day and a lot of motorcyclists frequent the place. Very safe surroundings and all types of motorcyclists go there. Really no gang members, just a bunch of motorcyclists, trying to look tough. All in good fun, as most of the bikers are businessmen and love to bike. GO THERE. On Saturday nights the is usually a 3 piece band playing...guitars drums and a BIG stringed bass violin :-)

“Great Breakfast!”
Reviewed 7 February 2013

Views of the Gatineau River are great and best enjoyed on sunny days on the outdoor deck.!
Breakfasts are a specialty there and come with lots of variety.
Service comes with a friendly smile and they have a lovely little gift store to wander around after your meal.
The steam train fro Ottawa comes right past the restaurant a couple of times a week during the summer months - a great sight to see from the deck area.

“Great view, interesting food”
Reviewed 21 September 2012

Located above a Depanneur (small grocery store) on the northern edge of scenic Wakefield, Quebec, Chamberlin's has an interesting menu of delicious food. Venison burger, lentil burger, traditionally-made tortierre and pot pies are only some of the choices. A delicious lentil soup was available on that day. Many dishes were accompanied by a wonderful cranberry/raisin chutney. Chamberlin's has a rustic old porch overlooking the Gatineau River that seats about 30 patrons. The service was friendly, but not particularly quick. Wakefield is a relaxed and relaxing place, located near several ski hills. There is also a charming covered bridge on the edge of town.
