Too Much Salt

Too Much Salt! Portions are fine, service is good, decor is pleasant and the view is killer, but damn, you don't have to add so much salt to everyday items. And I like salt. This is the 5th time my wife and I have visited and each time we bring this to the attention of the servers and nothing... read more

The patio makes this experience worth it. You can tan and enjoy Georgian Bay while trying a wide variety of drinks as well as draught beer and tasteful appetizers. Friendly service and awesome food! Good mix of choices on the menu from quick American style burgers to amazing stir fry. The small town vibe mixed with a carefree atmosphere truly... More

We entered and was greeted by a young lady who showed us where we could store our helmets. (nice not to have them on the table)... More

The Boathouse is an excellent place for a nice summer meal on the water. The service is excellent and the view is amazing. The owners are great people! If there are any issues with the service or your meal (which rarely happens) you will most likely be given a percentage off your bill or the option to order something else.... More

My wife and I come here often for everything it offers. The food and selection is always amazing, even fora vevegetarian diet. The patio in the Summer is beautiful and relaxing with a spectacular view of the water. The staff and ownership have always been accommodating. Local entertainment on the weekends adds to the ambience.
