I ordered a poutine. The easiest meal ever. Received it cold. My server was wearing pajama bottoms. Seriously? Thank goodness our server left our table & we got a new server. She was pleasant. My cousin got a wrap and her lettuce was close to rotting...

Don Cherry's has new owners as of about a month ago. The food is much better and I understand some much needed upgrades are coming soon to the property.

Décor, like many is rustic had all the famous hockey memorabilia. Lots of... More

Traveling, went with my female friend on a Saturday night. Atmosphere: dank, fetid and menacing. No music but a scratchy, crappy, ABBA tape played like a whisper and a lone, broken, blood-spattered, pool table which constitutes the only entertainment other than 10 violent men, regulars,lined up at the bar SCREAMING repugnant assessments of the female anatomy; vicious, homophobic slurs and...

Ok food, typical prices. Service was great! Seems to be the latest open pub in Parry Sound, so not much to compare to. Full kitchen menu available until 11pm, appetizers until 1am. Could use a makeover inside, but after driving for six hours, the warm food was welcome!

We got sucked in , going there to watch a Blue Jays game on a Tuesday night. with the game tied 3-3, all TVs went to Great Race, as two locals were in it. No notice, no sighs, no warnings. What dispicable behaviuor by staff.

Open late, which was great for we weary travelers. Friendly (lonesome?) and colorful locals. Typical sports bar offerings, but the food was surprisingly good! My cobb salad was crisp and fresh, and the homemade salad dressing was a treat. Good selection of beers. TVs with Canadian football league games. Service was friendly and skilled -- also knowledgeable about GF needs.

We stopped at Don Cherry's for lunch on our way home from camping at Killbear. Small portions of food for the price but it was tasty. We were with three of our young grandkids (ages under 7) and they were treated extra special! Lots of attention and activities to keep them busy which we were grateful for.

It had a very attractive patio and it was a sunny day which made the lunch very enjoyable. The meals were mainly pub fare but very nicely presented and good value.
