  • Nice building with different restaurants. There are external washrooms as well which is nice. What would be great is a way to get to the ice surface from around back as it can take a while to walk around the building to get to the front entrance.
  • Malones at Dows Lake. Good food, great service. Great view. Washrooms could use an upgrade. Parking validated by server helps but pay parking adds to cost if you stay too long.
  • Had a friends wedding here. Amazing amazing views at night over the water. The only thing lacking is parking. Pay for parking a few streets down
  • Always a great experience! Shout out to Peter our server for the amazing service! If you have never visited this place you really need to check it out!!
  • Lots of official types sitting around inN C C trucks but not enough hands on workers with shovels . The canal is awesome but there is a lot of room for improvement
