I came here a while ago and didn't like the food at all. On the recommendation of a friend, I came back and I have to say the food quality has improved significantly! It is now up to par with the decor and the service and very much worth the cost. Nice!

We have been going here for years. Celebrating our wedding 30 years ago, Anniversaries, Birthdays and even celebrated our loved ones life when passing. So when we wanted to reserve somewhere for my daughters graduation from nursing, there wasnt a question on where we celebrate her special day. The food again did not disappoint and the service was above & beyond as usual.

A bit tricky to find via the address on the website, as there does not appear to be any signage at the Best Western (It's inside the building! Google maps provides a little more info.), but well worth a bit of trouble. Great service, nice atmosphere, cold beer, and very good food. Will definitely be back!

This place is a hidden gem. Had to go to Cornwall on business. Stayed at the hotel. I typically don't eat at hotels for a million reasons...but this place was packed when I arrived to check in. My entire stay I ate here for room service and in the restaurant. Very friendly staff, cozy lodge like atmosphere. Great beers on tap and great wine and drink selection. I had ribs one night, literally...
