Deliciously local flare

Open year round but with seasonal hours. Located steps from Georgian Bay enjoy the patio on the summer. Dinner menu has a nice variety. Won't disappoint. Try the whitefish, Shepherds pie and burgers. Great for groups. Locals and tourists alike. A lot of ambiance. Good service.

Lunch was a small bowl of some kind of creamy soup, with a large warm bun. The arugala salad was no where. Nothing special at all. The tea was good but no one came to refill the pot. Just a waste of time and money.

We enjoyed our times at the Lion's Head Restaurant with its uniquely local personality. Much of the Inn contained interesting Scottish memorabilia.

My wife and I visted with our 2 year old daughter in the off-season. The weather was nice so we ate outside on the patio. We had the potato skins and lamb burgers which were both very good. They had a good selection of beers on tap and that kept us there enjoying the sun. The service was average but... More

Ate here on a cool afternoon - Innis And Gunn pint, and a great small Greek salad. Lots of people there - well worth a meal. Would be very small in the winter.

We stayed in Lions Head for a week, and were excited to try this restaurant. After a night of far too many glasses of wine, we figured the pub fare would be perfect. My mini shepherds pies in the "yorkies" were great, however my husband and brother were very unimpressed with their fish and chips. The fish was mushy and... More

We were looking for a restaurant to eat, but there weren't many choices at Lion's head. We decided to choose this one, but we thought it was just another pub restaurant with pizzas, fries, and etc. But I was sooooooooooooo wrong. Their food was delicious!!!! (We had bangers and mash, cannelloni, and carrot cake ) The highlight of the night... More

Nearly died when I got the beer bill: I think the only places I've visited that were more expensive were in Scandinavia! Food was OK but mostly deep-fried, and not particularly good value. Really, we came here for the atmosphere, which is great, with a good pub feel and a large deck outside. Staff were friendly too.

Local pub for visitors to enjoy seafood, spirits and brews. Staff ore friendly. Even though they need to engage the patrons more by supplying ketchup,or other condiments without being asked. House wine was a hit. The owner is thoughtful and caring to his patrons. Busy weekends mean limited seating. Be sure to make a reservation.
