A must stop in the heart of cottage country! The Common Stove makes a lovely spot for your weekly night out or if you don't live nearby, taking the time to stop in Orillia for Lunch, Brunch or Dinner will be worth the detour!
I highly recommend the eggs Benny on the Brunch menu and the Common Caesar will kickstart your day too!

We had dinner at 5:45 two dishes on the menu we couldn’t order no food at 5:45? Very over priced for the substandard service we received will looking out the window at some very different looking people across the street. Will never return.

Alley way dining was lovely. Prime rib was excellent. My husband said his fish was too salty but the taste was nice. I didn’t like that the only option for a glass of wine was a 5 oz and was quite expensive for that size. There was no other option other than buying a bottle so if you wanted more than one glass you were paying 20 plus dollars which seems a bit much for 10 oz.
Overall it was very nice and we’ll definitely try it another time.

I have been to the Common Stove for lunch and brunch. Both times the food was very good. I had a heirloom tomato and burrata salad for lunch at $15. It was extremely tasty, but definitely not filling. My friend had the steak tartare which was also tasty, she let me try it. For brunch I had bacon-eggs Benny. It was good, but I feel I make better eggs benny at home to be honest. The ambience, atmosphere and service is excellent. My total bill for myself alone for brunch was $38 without tip, so a pretty pricey breakfast, but I had great company!

The atmosphere as well as the knowledgable staff were amazing. We had the cowboy ribeye for 4 and was good just a little fatty for my taste. The appetizers and sides were absolutely delicious especially the tuna dish. Thanks for the amazing experience and we will be back, saw someone getting the trout and definitely want to try that!

Great steak house! Shared a rib-eye with sides and an app. Open dining area that still allows for social distancing. The dining area was still busy at 10 pm. Great service and even a wine delivery by the owner himself working hard alongside his staff. Will definitely be back!

First time at The Common Stove. The experience was amazing. The food was delicious. We had 3 appetizers, the Porterhouse steak and 3 sides and shared it all between 4 people. Was the perfect amount of food. The drinks were fantastic. Great atmosphere for a night out with friends.

Best food!!! By far the best breakfast I’ve ever eaten. The bacon..

Just adds few more craft brews on tap. Ideally, a real English cask ale!

Another fantastic meal at The Common Stove. We were as group of four celebrating a birthday. We had a number of Martini’s, all of which were made perfectly. Glassware was also spot on. We tried a number of starters... the favourite was the beef tartare. We split the ribeye, mushroom pasta, and cauliflower as mains with sides of mushrooms and brussell sprouts. Service an d food were exceptional. Absolutely be back.

Every bite was as life changing as the first. Everything is freshly made in house and it tasted absolutely fantastic. Service was great, atmosphere was amazing, and the food was to die for. Menu isn’t always the same as what is posted online and some specials sell out quickly, earlier reservations would be better on those nights.

Fantastic meal. Excellent food quality, service, ambiance and wine list. We tried two apps (summer salad and green bean/tuna tornado) two mains (daily fish/trout and rib eye) a side of corn, and the house made basque cheese cake for dessert. Everything was cooked perfectly. We will absolutely be back in the coming days. A must do when in Orillia.
