Stopped for lunch during a trip to The Sleeping Giant park. Everything is homemade fresh daily so our server went over the menu selections that were still available. Food was served hot and good sized portions. Homemade soups were delicious as were the salad and sandwich. Be sure to stop if in the area. Just a short drive off Hwy... More

We lucked out that Karen's Kountry Kitchen was open the day we did a trip to the Ouimet Canyon. Only open part-time in June to September, so be sure to check out their website before you make the trek down to the Lake. Also, be sure to bring cash as they don't accept credit cards or debit. Now the food....... More

A regular place to for lunch when we visit family in Thunder Bay. It's worth the 45 kilometre drive from Thunder Bay. The food is prepared with love. Delicious entrées and the desserts are amazing, especially the white chocolate lemon tart. A unique restaurant where you can enjoy great food while sitting on the patio overlooking Pass Lake.

Homemade!... That is the way it feels and to say it is Homemade does not take away anything from it, actually for this place is better since all the setup, time and effort was made to signal it. The view is spectacular outside the place, the restaurant looks like out of a fairy tale and the menu is very well... More

We stopped here on a whim and lucky we did. We were seated on the deck with a great view of the lake. As this is a smaller restaurant you should get there earlier as they can run out of popular dishes. But from our experience the food was delicious and our server was entertaining.

Karen's Kountry Kitchen is a favourite with many f om Toronto to California. It has the best down home food at decent prices. The staff & cook Karen are outstanding and the setting on Pass Lake is well worth the 40 min drive from Thunder Bay. It is almost a spiritual event to sit and relax at Karen's enjoying the... More

Beautiful deck with lots of seating and lovely view of Pass Lake. The meat lasagna and daily wrap special (black bean) were delicious. Be sure to visit the dessert counter inside for a variety of treats. This restaurant has limited hours, does not accept credit cards, and will accept US dollars with poor exchange rate.
