8 of us had lunch here. Everything was good - omelette, sandwiches, home made potato soup, French onion soup, Greek salad. The place was almost full and there appeared to be only one waitress but the service was prompt & friendly. Would definitely go back.

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely lunch here recently. The dining room is a quiet, relaxing place to unwind, and to enjoy freshly prepared dishes. I ordered the whitefish lunch, which included a crisp green salad, tender steamed vegetables, and delicious sweet potato fries. The pan-fried whitefish was delicately prepared. The meal left me feeling satisfied, but not "stuffed".... More

This was our second time to the restaurant and while we were not disappointed with the meal and service their off business hours telephone service does not allow leaving a message/request for a reservation. Our reservation making experience was off putting enough that we will look elsewhere the next time we're in the area.

This is hands down, my favorite restaurant. I always get the bacon wrapped scallops & tender Filet mignon & usually a little homemade coconut cream pie for dessert. it is soooo delicious. The service by our waitress is always exceptional. (Wow, where can you go & your waitress knows what you want before you even order...great memory) Thank you so... More

Wide food selection, excellent food preparation, great service - what more do you need ??? Decent wine selection, white tablecloths, reasonable prices, comfortable chairs ... It is not a rowdy place. Here, you can enjoy your meal with soft music, have conversations without yelling. Our meals were steak and scallops - perfectly done. The restaurant was very quiet on this... More

We were looking for a restaurant where we could enjoy fish caught in the nearby Georgian Bay. We had seafood, perhaps not from the Bay, but our meal was excellent. Vegetables were done perfectly, sweet potato fries were the best I've ever had and the fish was prepared very well. The atmosphere was elegant and relaxing. The restaurant is not... More

We enjoyed our dinner and would highly recommend anyone looking for a nice evening out while in Owen Sound. Steak was done perfectly, scallops were delicious and the coconut cream pie was the perfect end to a perfect meal! We will be back on our next trip to Owen Sound

We've been here a couple times now based on others recommendations but both times we found the food to be average, a little over-priced, and even the atmosphere is lack-luster. Don't get me wrong, it's not horrible, but just not my cup of tea.
