Patio Season is Back!

Get ready for the return of a classic Muskoka summer tradition.

While we’ve all enjoyed ordering takeout and delivery to our homes over the last couple months, as the summer weather arrives, we are more than ready to sit down on a patio in the sunshine, or under the stars, surrounded by classic Muskoka scenery paired with delicious food and cold drinks.

That is why we are so excited that restaurants across Huntsville and Lake of Bays are welcoming guests back to their patios after the province announced that Ontario has entered the first stage of its reopening plan on Friday June 11th.

Not every patio will be opening up right away — many places will be waiting to see what happens —we recommend calling each restaurant to confirm details.

Great food, great ambiance and excellent service are waiting for you at 3 Guys And A Stove. Bite into a delicious appetizer like delicious flatbreads and coconut shrimp or try a wide arrange of salads, including the best Caesar salad around, then move onto the entrees like ribs, steak, pasta and over a dozen outstanding vegetarian dishes.
