We had dinner on the patio last night and it was amazing. I only wish that the shrimp cocktail had been on the menu, as I had wanted to try that. Maybe next time

It was a beautiful summer evening so we reserved a table out on their covered porch. This porch overlooks the lake; an amazing location. My husband and I were greeted right away and shown our table. We were given time to look over the wine list before having to select our meal. As we sipped our wine, a plate of... More

My husband had the bison, and I had two appetizers, as I do not eat red meat. There was only one chicken choice that didn't excite me, and there were no vegetarian choices on the menu, although a vegan option was offered verbally after I had chosen the appetizers. My appetizer avocado salad was OK, but not worth the money... More

This is my second review of this restaurant, and I felt obliged to write a new one because my previous review was based on one poor experience, and our last two meals here have been wonderful. We attended the wine tasting dinner last night and thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. From the sparkling wines on the patio to the wonderful... More

If you are looking for fine dining in warm and comfortable surroundings, this is the place. The menu is limited,which to me, is a good sign.The food is presented nicely and cooked to your liking.The view is magnificent,if you like spectacular sunsets.Whenever we are in town and have something celebrate,this is the restaurant of choice.

Good food. Lovely presentation. Nice view of the sunset from the patio. Plates quite often include edible flowers for additional effect. All local fresh ingredients used.

We had another great meal at Harbour Street. This is one of our favourite restaurants to celebrate special events. The 60 kilometre drive is well worth the trip and time. The food was excellent as always and the service was impeccable. LJ had the avocado, tomato and feta cheese salad, streak frites and a warm maple tart with maple crunch... More

I was taken there for my birthday. It was my first visit. It's quaint. The service is superb. The menu is great. I really enjoyed it. I was just disappointed that my birth month coincides with chillier weather so we couldn't take advantage of sitting on the porch to enjoy the sunset over the lake. Other than that, we had... More

Brasserie is what I call a "special occasion restaurant"....ie, our budget can only swing it occasionally. HOWEVER, it is by far, in my opinion, the best restaurant in Kincardine and surrounding area. One caveat, which is actually a positive....if the menu item mentions a particular ingredient, ie mushrooms, it will be REALLY mushroom-y, so you'd better love them! They also... More

The service was very efficient, fast and courteous. A great team that added a great atmosphere to the room. Starting the dinner with a... More
