    Celebrating a birthday with 2 couples attending. It was a cool night with the threat of rain coming. The waiter didn't ignite the outdoor heaters until we asked him. Also put up the outdoor umbrellas when it started to rain, but no offer to move us inside. The waiter quickly brought out a candle-lit dessert for the birthday person after our dinner plates were removed, but never asked if anyone else at the table wanted to order dessert.

    I was disappointed in the service. It took more than 20 minutes to get water, and on top of that, my husband and I didn't have the chance to finish our dessert; the waiter gave us the bill and took out dessert away. What the hell... And it was only 9:20. A place that we do not feel welcomed! I would not recommend it to friends and family, especially we love port carling.

    The food is fantastic. The mussels were enough for two and delicious. My chicken was tender, beautifully marinated and very moist. The risotto was also excellent. My wife's burger was one of the best she had ever had. The fries are the best I ever had. The key lime pie was sublime. Service was superb. When we had a question the chef came out to answer it. Going back tomorrow.

    Good food but it took a long time to receive even though the restaurant wasn’t that busy. People who were seated, and ordered, after us received their food ahead of us so not sure what happened with our order. Overall great venue and service was very good.

    This is a lovely spot with great outdoor seating. The food was very good and service was great. It’s definitely a place to treat yourself, but not an everyday outing as the prices were quite steep for the serving size. Definitely recommended.

    Overpriced for food that is not worth it. Taste was below standard for the price you pay. View is nice. We were seated at a pretty dirty table. Told the waiter and he did clean it up. Would rather have gone to Turtle Jack's or Taco spot by the river.

    I thought, the value of the appetizer was extremely over priced ! Two scallops for $18… Highway robbery. The main course came out rather lukewarm if at best, considering it was pasta and that the noodles should’ve been steaming. Overall, rated a three star experience due to the factors mentioned above. Would I go back… Don’t think so.

    Really nice patio. Thank you for seating us overlooking the water. Burrata and tomato appetizer was delicious! The toasted bread was a great compliment that we requested, but was surprised by an extra charge for 2 slices. Chicken supreme and linguine dishes were great, but small portions. Key lime pie was really good. Nice presention of all the food. Some dinner music would be nice. Happy to have celebrated our 20year anniversary here!🤗

    Disappointing main course and super pricey for what you got. The restaurant was very busy and the food showed it. We had the trout main course at $42 each. The trout was overdone and the veggies were embarrassing. Although they looked attractive, they were overcooked as was the trout and a meager portion. For such a high price, I would have expected some potato or rice with it. It was only a baked trout fillet with a few side veggies. Although the main course was disappointing to say the least, the appetizers were delicious. Also the venue was beautiful as long as you sat in prime patio tables overlooking the Port Carling small lock. The other patio under a roof structure was simply ok. Would I recommend this restaurant? I think the kitchen was overwhelmed by the number of patrons this particular evening. Our son and his wife (who are foodies) ate there a few weeks previously and raved about the food especially the trout. I might give it another try. Better yet, I'll just stay home and cook the trout myself. That way I'll know that it will be done right.
