I recently visited Manitoulin Island with my cousins visiting from the UK. We stayed at the beautiful Queens Inn on Gore Bay. Our first evening we wandered down to a waterside restaurant Buoys Eatery and take out, with an outdoor patio and a cosy indoor space. Definitely the place to be in Gore Bay. A cheerful buzz, friendly staff, chef... More

Ordered one burger and a chicken Caesar salad. It took over 45 mins to get our food. My wife's salad was gritty like the romaine had not been washed and my burger was missing the bacon. We mentioned this to the server and she was very apologetic. That was about all. We were hungry and not prepared to wait another... More

Really liked the pizza. The stacks beer from Sudbury was great too! Friendly service relaxing on the outdoor deck. Only downside was no martinis and no anchovies for the pizza. Otherwise a must stop and throughly good time! You won't be disappointed.

Buoys has quickly become one of our fav places to eat in Manitoulin and as we visit the island every year, sometimes twice a year, we get opportunity to enjoy the meals each time. Their food is simple yet hearty and delicious - most (if not all) of it local. The pizzas are excellent - light, almost flaky crust, with... More

My husband is picky where he eats and was hesitant to stop here but we were very plesantly surprised. The food was excellent - pizza, hummus (huge serving), salad - and the service was good too. We sat outside and had a nice view of the bay and, as we were finishing our meal, a guitarist began playing quietly in... More

I had a the pleasure of visiting Gore Bay towards the end of September and visited Buoys. I was working with the good people from Manitoulin Transport and they explained that we simply had to go to Buoys. The proprietor was incredibly cordial and the pizza was so good, I had to go back the following day. It really rounded... More

Last place for food in Gore Bay since it is end of season. Even though, apparently, our order ticket didn't make it to the kitchen, we enjoyed the food from local farmers although I wouldn't add hot banana peppers to the quesadillas. Not everyone's taste. Service was friendly.

After a beautiful trip by kayak from Maple Point to Clapperton Island in the North Channel of Lake Huron, we drove to Gore Bay for dinner. Another beautiful setting and the ample decks of the restaurant faced the marina and the setting sun. We thought we were tired of fish, which was why we picked a pizza place, but in... More
