Great Biew

The view is great. the staff was just okay and all of us found that the food was really greasy. Not sure whether we will go back again to give them another chance.

Food was great. The staff was very friendly and the service was excellent. Menu covers all the bases and is well priced. The views are breathtaking no matter what season it is. This is my favourite place to go to for lunch or dinner. Love it!

I've been going to this restaurant for a few years now and the menu could really use an update or at the very least some more selections. The view of the lake from the patio is amazing. We only go on warm days so we can sit outside. The hamburgers are delicious! I made the mistake of upgrading to poutine... More

Always good service at the old marina. I personally have never had a bad meal. The only way you can go wrong is if you are determined to eat the enormous burger they bring you. View right on the lake with a great cottage feel. Its little muskoka in the big city.

We went for dinner here a few weeks ago. They don't take reservations for groups under 12. So, if there are 6 of you like our group, you may have to wait on a busy night. The atmosphere is almost cottage like. Worn wooden floors and wood pretty much everywhere inside. Lots of interesting nick knacks on the walls and... More

Excellent lamb burger and probably the best yam frites I've ever had. Wonderful location overlooking Puslinch Lake - they have two miniature trains that run along the ceiling edge which are quite a novelty and add to the fun of the place. Lots of outdoor seating with pretty lighting. Prices were reasonable, good variety on the menu, service was friendly... More

This place used to be spectacular! The food, the views just awesome! The menu has gone downhill just like the atmosphere! Too expensive for what you get & service is poor! Thank Gawd they have a great view of the lake to take your mind off everything else!

Food is just ok, service is even worse. Best part of marina is the view of the lake. Needs a little sprucing up as interior is getting old.

The food is consistently delicious no matter what you order - freshly made homestyle goodness. If you don't mind the spiders, catching the sunset perched over the lake on their patio rounds out a great supper!

We made the trip out there one evening fairly early, as we find places less busy around five. It was fairly busy already. When we walked in there were a few people milling about the entrance but no line up. We approached what we assumed was the kiosk and stood for about 15 minutes without anyone even looking our way...
