On recent visit to Algonquin park, day visit from Kanata, Ottawa. We stopped of here on way home for late lunch - around 2pmish. Another belter of a day , 32 deg temps. Sat outside under the patio with views of the river as only...touro's from down under , NZ that is 😉 We had very warm welcome and excellent waitress who iooked after us well. Good enough lunchtime selection of both brews and food, very typical pub fare food. Chose the crispy chicken sammie, Excellent fries I may add. Fellow diners had the pulled pork wrap and the Cuban. All enjoyed these washed down with locally brewed beers. Rio lager- nice drop. If ever back this way , which is highly unlikely , good place to stop for a bite, nothing flashy. Basic good pub fare and beers with a warm smile- all you could ask for - right.More

Food was excellent - burger was so good and pizza delicious. Local brewed larger was very good. You can dine inside or outside on 3 patios. The rooftop patio is great and the views of the lake amazing.

We stopped here for lunch before visiting the Bonnechery caves. As soon as we walked in we were greeted by a friendly young lady. She gave us a seating options and we chose the rooftop. It happened to be a great choice, as there was...a nice view and the live music. We were promtly seated, and served by friendly and attentive server Jacey. We both had the burgers which tasted surprisingly good. We would not hesitate to stop in this place for a bite to eat again. Thank you for making a part of our day trip a very positive experience.More

Good food, great staff and reasonable prices. We chose to eat on the deck overlooking the river. The view was great and you could actually see the fish in the river below.

Food and service were very good. Great selection of beer on tap and prices were fair. Sitting on the deck overlooking the water was the best way to enjoy the meal.

We went to the Rio after Golf for Dinner , we sat at a table on the Roof Top which is Nice ! The Food is Average at best , the Pizza is Horrible so I would avoid that , the dough is not fresh..., cardboard would be a similar comparison , way overpriced for that . Can’t understand what is so hard about making fresh dough , the waitress even told us it’s frozen . Anyways Beer was cold , Atmosphere is great ! Food needs work and this place would be a 5/5 !!More

Food,was terrible, two order's of fish and chips,owner said the fish is hand breaded and fresh. It is not,he also claimed he had a chef and two cooks working that night. It was 6pm not busy and their is no way he was paying a...chef and two cook's. Have ordered five times here,once it was okay not great ! Fries were pre cooked and then cooked again,went in the next day and George the owner was sitting playing on his phone. No apology or explanation,tells me how much he does not care. This place charges chef prices for line cook's wages,don't waste your time or money !!!!!More

I ordered the Fisherman bake and I was very disappointed. Shrimp came out of a can (tiny shrimp) and the scallops were also very tiny canned scallops. I've been to many restaurants and I've never been served canned seafood. If you don't have it don't...serve canned food. and a bit to expensive...$25.00 for this plate. First time this year and last.More

Great staff, with everyone’s apprehension with Covid the staff clearly handled the process better than most restaurants we’ve been to over the past few weeks while touring Ontario. We had a few drinks and a few appetizers. Fantastic, should have had an entree. The potato...nacho things were surprisingly really good. I’m not a fried food fan but this is an exceptional fried dish.More

Almost Keto friendly, which I wasn't even concerned about since we do cheat for very special occasions! My husband and I shared a litre of white wine and also both enjoyed a delicious bowl of fresh mushroom soup to start. I ordered a delicious, mouth...watering scallop Risotto over a bed of riced cauliflower in a flavourful sauce and carrots cooked to perfection. My husbsnd enjoyed a tender steak with mashed potatoes and green beans with carrots. We both had a perfectly spiced large portion of gingerbread in rum sauce for dessert. Their Valentine Special pricing for two is so affordable for such a lovely meal. Almost forgot to mention the romantic love songs entertainment for the evening.More

Just really dissapointed. If you like frozen food heated up with high prices, this could be good for you. The quality was not there for the prices we were charged. We really should have asked if the fish was fresh or frozen. We can even...get fresh fish at other restaurants for less money. Ask for fresh before ordering any items here.More
