Fries were good. Location at the waterfront is great. Could be more picnic tables but probably beyond their control.

For a quick bite to eat, we really enjoyed the fish and chips. Good portion sizes and not greasy. For lunch, we split a fish and chip between the two of us and were quite content. Friendly service. Would go back.

We were there with friends who were staying in the campgrounds and decided to go for lunch, we were there a total of an hour and a half waiting on horrible service all the while with several hungry kids.

Had to wait 45 minutes for two burgers , one frie and a milkshake. Lots of staff. I finally asked them why was it taking so long, The owner told me if I did not want to wait I could cancel it.

All I can say is too bad it's closed in the winter cause the food here is terrific, and I miss it. It's the only place I know where you can get mashed potatoes and veges with your fish instead of fries. Love it, love it. Can hardly wait for it to open again, Staff are great also and the... More

great view of the park and the bay, fantastic food, love the burgers, breakfast is great, the eggs don't slide off your plate from grease like a lot of places. Staff are friendly.

Limited menu but a lot of variety for everyone, including bacon and egg breakfast in the afternoon! Burgers, sandwiches, fish on a bun etc. Right on the Bay so the view is fantastic and service was great!

Absolutely beautiful view of the bay and the Wiarton Willie statue as you're having breakfast. The eggs were done perfectly and so were the bacon and sausage. The waitress was a sweetie and came back to ask if I wanted more coffee.

We stopped in Wiarton on our way home from Cottage Country to find some quick fish and chips. Found this place at main beach area on Canada Day and decided to "sit in" the "restaurant" to eat our fish and chips instead of ordering from the take-out window. Place looked good enough, except washrooms were atrocious, but I gave that... More
