Fabulous setting for casual dining.

Great setting overlooking Puslinch Lake, nice patio for casual dining. Service is sometimes good, sometimes average. Good varied menu, however some food items are better than others. Worth a visit for the view alone.

Why do I always forget about this place? It seems I was mistaken in thinking they must close during the winter - We ate here twice in late December and I promise myself we will not forget about it next time we have that "want to eat out but can't think of where" situation. It's only 2 minutes up Pinebush... More

The staff were very friendly, and service was great. The food was a huge amount,and I had to take half to go. Great menu and good prices too. The scenery is out of this world with water all around the restaurant. The restaurant was very clean,and spacious with a lot of tables inside and out. I would differently recommend this... More

Seating and Service is quick ... Too much food no matter what you order and never disapoints. The food quality is right up there and they stand by what they serve.

The food was good with good portions. The view from inside or on patio was relaxing and scenic. Puslinch lake has a cottage country feel. A lake with islands and boat traffic and even an occasional water skier. A good place to go on the edge of Cambridge if you want something a little different than regular restaurants.

Lunch or Dinner any Season, Old Marina never disappoints. Great hospitality and Great food with a great view of Puslinch Lake. Very reminiscent of cottage country within a short drive of Cambridge/Galt. The portions are always generous & wait staff efficient and friendly. It's a family favourite.

My friend and I had visited the restaurant in the past and loved it. We arranged to meet friends for lunch there today. The lunch menu was limited, the server was surly and unshaven, the food was at best mediocre and luke warm. This all came with a hefty price tag. The view, as usual, was beautiful but not worth...

The marina restaurant was good but the last few visits have gotten worse and worse. The service levels continue to deteriorate. During peak times is understandable if there are delays, however, after the rush it shouldn't take 30 minutes to place an order and then another 55 minutes to get served. On my last visit I would have spoken to... More
