Had the Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding. Fantastic. The Continental Breakfast offers a wide choice of options.

The decor and layout of this restaurant is very inviting and friendly. There is lots of natural light with a view of Georgian Bay in the background. Food is typical hotel fare - ambitious but mediocre. The fish was a little overdone and the fish and chips was rather doughy. Service was friendly but there was no water and we... More

Several years ago we were at a special event at this restaurant and enjoyed one of the finest roast beef dinners we have ever experienced. We returned to the restaurant recently and found once again the atmosphere and food to our liking. It was quiet with no background music and allowed us to have an enjoyable visit with our friends....

We have eaten lunch here a few times and have always been impressed by how friendly and efficient the staff are. The last time we came here, the place was full, including a couple of large tables. However, our lunch was delivered very quickly by a friendly, efficient young waitress. We had chili, reuben sandwich & stir fry. All very... More

This is our second time at Best Western Inn On The Bay. The first time we were placed in a room in an area of the hotel where a wedding reception was taking place. It was noisy and not enjoyable, ONLY for that reason. This time, I requested to a room in a more quiet area of the Inn. The... More

I wish I could say the food justified the prices here, but I can't. It seems everything in Owen Sound closes on Sunday, so we had both lunch and dinner at the hotel (at lunch, we were told we could get $10 off our dinner meal if we completed a survey over the phone, so that's a plus). Salmon was... More

Peachy Princess Martini an absolute gem. Fantastic portions, and great value. Evening specials vary per day, and great service

Staff try very hard and do a great job. Food good but a bit pricy. Not a large restaurant so fills up fast. Nice patio area if the AC fan noise could be reduced
