About Us


We are foodies at heart (you can read about our food philosophy), and we care deeply about what we do (check out our values). Since 1986, when we took over this restaurant - which came with its own unique history - we've been blessed with more than a business, more than a job: you could call it a labour of love.

And speaking of love, we're crazy about where we live. North Hastings is amazing and we are happy to support the community that has supported us over the years.

We are a family run business, and proud of it. As times change and the number of classic Canadian Mom and Pop Shops dwindle, we come back year after year, still dedicated to the great quality, friendly service and genuine care for our guests that we've devoted ourselves to for the past 25 years.

Since opening our doors all those years ago, we have developed incredible relationships - many of our staff, the Craftsman Crew, have stayed with us for a decade or longer. And we've had the privilege of serving the same guests year after year - we've seen their children grow, marry, and have children of their own. It's been a real pleasure.

Those who know us, know that in addition to our love of great food we are enthusiastic gardeners and collectors, check out our gardens and antiques and neat stuff. But don't just check them out on-line, come see us, we'd love to have you!
