We are lucky to have a restaurant like Gilly's only ten minutes from our cottage and visit a few times each summer. We are happy to see they are busy when we do go as this is a special place. They have expanded their menu over the years to include more than just local fish, which is their specialty. As... More

My family and I try to make it to Gilly's a few times a summer. The food is good. The atmosphere is charming. Some time waiting for orders is an issue but to be fair it is quite often very busy. If prices were better I think we'd stop by more often. A bit pricey.

We were disappointed in that the fish was just average and I'm not sure if it was fresh caught or not. Its about a 1/2 hour drive from Parry Sound and I'm not sure its worth the drive. Nice location on the water.

3 hrs from arrival to service with no apology!!!! I feel sorry for the staff, the owner is an idiot! He has the waitresses make up excuses for his poor management and service! I would not come back to to the fat spineless owner ever! Take your whitefish an shove it! Oh ya, no whitefish tonight!!!! Enjoy you fool!

Gilly's is a great spot if you are boating or driving in the Parry Sound area. The restaurant is actually located in Snug Harbor and is so popular by boat that you may have to wait for a slip ...or you could use the government dock and walk about 5-min. down the road to Gilly's. The menu has quite a... More

We sometimes eat @ Gilly's when staying on that area of Georgian Bay. This year 11 of us went and though we like the location, the food is not what I remember in the past. The battered fish was pretty good but the pan-fried fish was small portions, not seasoned properly, and was overcooked. The fries were not the best... More

My family frequents Gilly's every summer by boart from our cottage at Pointe au Baril. The food is consistently great so it's worth the 45 minute boat ride and all the gas we use to get there and back. We've tried most of the items on the menu at one time or another and been very satisfied with almost all... More

Fresh local fish cooked a variety of ways! If you like fish, find Gilly's. We were staying in Parry Sound and drove the 25 minutes but it is definitely worth it.

Every year we spend time with friends up on Georgian Bay. Gilly's is a delightful restaurant run by the family who also run the marina, docks, and local store. It is located in Snug Harbour a most attractive sheltered bay serving cottagers and vacationers. Being a waterfront cottagers' restaurant it is of course casual and relaxed; but it has clearly...

Had a fantastic lunch. All 3 of us agreed it was the best fish we have ever had (and we eat allot of fish). Even the after meal coffee was superb. Beautiful scenic views as you eat. Would highly recommend it
