From Toronto to Stouffville – The Corner House

Situated on the corner of Main Street and Park Drive in the Town of Stouffville, The Corner House offers a mix of fine to relaxed dining at an affordable price. While the beer selection isn’t anything to brag about, the dining experience and service is next to unbeatable.

I made reservations for a Saturday night in the upper room to experience what staff called the “best live duo in town” and we weren’t the least bit disappointed. Right off the bat, the staff made no issue of our changing number of guests and did their best to accommodate without any attitude or heavy sighs on the other end of the receiver. Appetizers at our table ranged from Grilled Flatbread, Grilled Calamari and Pan-Seared Scallops. Entrees of bacon-wrapped lamb chops and grilled beef tenderloin were served in a classic style accompanied by optional taters or greens. Wait staff was more than prepared to answer various questions regarding wine pairings and offer suggestions without hesitation and with confidence.

Beer was limited to a short list of the regular import and domestic types and only offered Stella Artois on tap – somewhat disappointing, however; the lack of tap beer was backed by a solid wine selection of Ontario, California and Italy’s best. My only beef would be the lack of reds from France – only one bottle listed from Liore and I would have liked to see at least a couple of heavy hitters from either the Rhône or Bordeaux regions.

The live music was great – the boys played three hours straight without taking a break and covered off a number of classic rock hits from the 60’s and 70’s.

If you’re living in town or just passing through, The Corner House offers a dining experience that can’t be beat outside of the GTA.
