I live locally and eat out a LOT. This restaurant is a treasure. The prices are fair. It is quite large and yet is so homey. The fireplace burns brightly and tables are pushed together for large family dinners if necessary. Almost everything we have ever eaten here has been excellent, especially the prime rib. No one minds running back... More

My sister and I visited this restaurant for breakfast. I ordered the portobello omelette and my sister had the brie and egg white omelette. Both omelettes were great. Service was very good. Restaurant needs to get a better brand of coffee that has flavour. Great breakfast!!!

Great place to take tourists because it is so authentically North American with animal heads mounted on the wall and the log cabin decor! Great place to go for a very very cheap breakfast. Staff are as warm and that toasty log fire they always have blazing!

This restaurant looks a bit cliche on the outside, but is awesome when it comes to food! Their breakfasts are amazing and have hearty and home cooked feel. They have more of a traditional menu, but do it well. They are food allergy safe and take extra precautions. Yes, worth trying out!

Pioneer House was a great stop for a dinner with family last Friday evening. My son chose the Butter Chicken Poutine, my husband the Chicken and Waffle and I had Tortilla Soup. All meals were delicious and plentiful. There was a large selection of healthy Gluten Free options for me to choose from.
