This was our third visit to Canoe, and it never disappoints. We brought some friends this time, and they were impressed. Food was outstanding, service was great, fun and friendly staff/atmosphere. We sat downstairs this time and prefer upstairs, but overall fantastic!!! Will definitely be back!

Great selection for dining. Variety of people who had been eating all day and every one found a deliciously right sized portion. Waitress was an experienced professional who did a great job with a larger party. Perfect end to a reunion.

Been coming here for years and has always had the reputation of good food and good service.
We took 3 couples with us and while the food was good, it was not quite as good as in prior years. However, the service was terrible. This was not the waitress' fault. They were incredibly understaffed with no busperson to help the waitress service two large tables.
I said something to the management, but nothing improved .
I had another reservation two days later and cancelled.

Party of 9 all raved about their meals. Salmon was excellent but vegies included were cool. Only complaint would be that we wanted to order a birthday cake & couldn't. Had to order 9 slices of carrot cake. Yikes

Very nice meal with extended family - four of us had the swordfish special and it was exceptionally good; albeit the rice & sausage was a bit too spicy for a few members of our crowd. They should have mentioned that the sausage was spicy. But I liked it. It was a long drive for us to get there as we were on the other side of the lake, but it was worth it. Our local family we were visiting go there a few times a year and it was their recommendation. I am sure we will go there again sometime.

The last three times we have visited and had a reservation for 7 pm the prime rib was no longer available. We have been disappointed each time since this was the entrée option that was the reason for our choice of restaurant.
