The only problem you will have when you dine here is choosing from the wonderful choices presented in the menu. We make this a regular stop when travelling from southern Ontario to eastern Ontario. Everything we've had here has been excellent.

No there is no dress code to eat dinner, although many of the patrons were dressed more than casual. Our party dressed in jeans and no one made comment otherwise.
