Lunch here with my husband. A very good experience. Nice waitress, friendly, checked in often without being intrusive. The chicken quesadilla was better than any I've had. Very fresh ingredients, generous with salsa and sour cream on the side (I didn't have to ask for...More

Highly recommend the walleye and chips on the very pleasant patio. Fries are fresh and everything was served hot and well cooked. They could use an espresso machine for those who are used to that type of coffee.

This is a wonderful little gem in Kenora. From the ambiance to the service to the fantastic food. This is a must stop if you are in Kenora. Order the cornerstone salad as your side and you won't be disappointed.

Our first visit to The Cornerstone Restaurant was for a Thursday late-lunch. Enjoyed the character atmosphere; lots of wood and dark colours. Simple, two-page menu and everything sounded appealing. Cornerstone salad, Beet salad and a wrap with home made fries were chosen. All were great...More

Best prime rib and Yorkshire pudding I've had in a long time. Tasted just like my mom used to make at home.

Nice place, food was good and arrived fairly fast considering they had a birthday group of about 30-32 people. Was loud because of said group. They have a summertime patio to help with the busy summer season. Inside holds approx 40-44 customers. All in all...More
