Convenient and roomy

We had a lunch at the Leeside and the food was quite good, portions good and the service was good. It is close to the dock and handy for travelers, overall a good clean restaurant.

Nothing exceptional but reasonable price and a pleasant view. Good if you have a pet with you and friendly service.

Great little diner very close to the ferry docks. Perfect for breakfast. We also had dinner there the night before. Food was good. Service was pretty quick until we needed to leave along with everyone else to catch the ferry.

On a warm day, this is the perfect place to wait for the ferry. It overlooks the ferry dock and you can actually see the ferry come in. There is lots of time to get to your car once the announcer requests everyone return to the cars. The servers are very nice. It is a great way to wait for... More

Went to Leaside for Breakfast. It is a busy place due to it's location beside the ferry. Unfortunately that maybe a bad thing. Breakfast was average at best, was not served cold, but not hot either. Plenty of coffee and the atmosphere is really good. Service was relatively slow, but at least you are not rushed, servers are friendly and... More

We had a poor experience here a few years back and were reluctant to give it another go, but were glad we did. Great food, friendly staff, typical pricing for a tourist area. The service was fast and they will cater to those looking for a quick bite before there Chi-cheemaun departure. Looking forward to next year when we return.

I had the hot roast beef dinner and again it was well prepared . We also appreciated that the restaurant served Ontario wines. The only thing I would change is... More

This is a great place for breakfast - we ate here while waiting for the ferry and during a stay in Tobermory. The staff is attentive and friendly, the food is great. We didn't have to worry about missing the ferry - the breakfast was served quickly and efficiently, with coffee served immediately as we sat down. The pea meal... More
