Dinner at Nathaniel's

I ordered a veggie platter with salad. Surprisingly, the veggies were tomatoes, zucchini and red onions. No broccoli or cauliflower (though there was a small sprig of them on my friend's chicken plate). I asked a lot of questions to make sure the food would be prepared without oil, and they grilled... read more

Nathaniel's is always consistent and never disappoints. I have tried nearly everything on the menu and am always delighted to eat here. The service is excellent and always friendly.

This is not the first time our ladies group has been to this restaurant and it certainly will not be the last. The ladies who ordered the various fish and chicken meals were especially pleased. I ordered the vegetable pasta bowl...it was very tasty but would have been more so if the pasta had been a titch more al dente.

My husband and I recently decided to sample as many restaurants as possible while contemplating a move to Owen Sound. We hit 7 restaurants in 6 days and this was by far the best and most surprising. Elegant environment with top-notch service and beautiful yet simple and not overly complicated food. He had the bruschetta and striploin from the $27... More

We've eaten at pretty much every restaurant in Owen Sound and Nathaniel's is the best. The decor is tasteful, the tables are beautifully made up with lots of room. My husband was thrilled to find out that the chef offered prime rib that evening. I had the savour winter menu and for $27 indulged in a striploin steak, tender and... More

My spouse and I attended this restaurant with another couple. We all had the savour winter menu, which includes three courses for 27 dollars. There were lots of options for guests of all food preferences/ restrictions and we all left satisfied. Everyone remarked how their meals were great quality and the food seemed very fresh. I hope Nathaniel's participates in... More

Two of us had a SURPRISINGLY good lunch here mid January. I had the arctic char and it was cooked beautifully but what was most surprising was the vegetables that came with the dish....they were absolutely perfect with a little crunch! My companion got the greek salad with chicken, and although the large portion size was a little small it... More

The Coconut cream pie is a signature must-have so leave room after the generous dinner portions. Each dish is home made and the fact that the place didn't have a single empty table says it all.

We had a family gathering here and it was a perfect venue. The appetizers were delish as was the main course. The servers were quick and friendly. We will definitely be back!
