An excellent restaurant for lunch or dinner. The best choice in the town with a wide menu and reasonably priced.

I travel East to West and I never thought I would find the best steak I've ever eaten in my home town. I have been a while getting her and that has certainly been my loss! This steak was Phenomenal! To say the least! The chef is one guy there isn't three or four people cooking so consistency is there... More

I know this establishment has had some pretty negative reviews in the past but we have no issues with it. I likely would not have gone to this restaurant because of the reviews but we were given some gift certificates. The food in my opinion was above average and was well worth the money. The portion size was certainly adequate.... More

The young waiter was very good. Helpful and available but not overbearing. Quality food at a reasonable price point. My daughter and have some restrictions in our... More

We were really looking forward to our first visit to Nathaniel's especially with so many good reviews. It's unfortunate that the good folks of Owen Sound feel this is good value for good food. My husband ordered the steak & lobster so at $39.95 we expected appropriate portions - smallest lobster tail we ever had served and the filet was... More
