Okay, this is going to be a "Poor" review, but specifically for those who are looking to grab a casual drink on a nice summer night, with a view of the bay. I didn't eat there. Just met up with a friend for a drink and the tab was about $25 for 2 glasses of wine. Make your own judgments,... More

Visited here for lunch whilst on holiday with my partner (staying with family in Barrie). Lunch menu was very reasonably priced ($46 for the 2 of us including beer and wine). Portions extremely generous. I had the grilled chicken wrap with warm goat's cheese which was very tasty and my partner had the 6oz rib eye steak. The meat was... More

I've been to this restaurant many times over the years but haven't been in probably over a year and half. Not sure if its the same owner or not because my lunch just wasn't up to usual par. I had the rib eye steak and Caesar salad. The steak used to be so think and juicy and very tasty. This... More

It was a good restaurant! My mother wanted to go there for their annivsery and it was enjoyable. The portion sizes are large, but the food was meh. I cannot say I'd go back myself, but my parents loved it. It is a good place to eat, but a bit overpriced for the value.

A good old fashion typical restaurant, a little romantic on week-end (if you are over 50, let's say 55 !!!!). Totally classic food served by a very experience staff. Great place to go with parents or grand-parents...

We went on a Saturday for dinner. We got a gift certificate from a friend and decided to try it out. The waitress was warm and friendly.The atmosphere was nice in the restaurant. The only improvement I would make would be to turn the heat up as I was a bit cold - wearing a medium sleeve blouse. The appetizers... More

Very good food and service....the atmosphere is lovely. We like the tables at the back of the restaurant. Their Apricot Chicken is a must try. Have dined here many times...never disappointed The out side patio is so nice in the summer. Thanks for the many good times at your restaurant with family and friends.

I even had dessert which left me over full but very happy. The food was great! Nothing bad to say. The atmosphere of the restaurant was cozy and warm, a pleasant surprise on a... More
