Beautiful view, great cocktails

This eatery has the best view in Tobermory, but it's also the most expensive place to eat in Tobermory. If the weather is good, I advise you to hang out on the patio, you can watch the sunset, the boats filtering in and out of the harbour and you have a great view of the ferry dock. Our meal was... read more

Nice view. Food was good but overpriced. Wine was excellent. Wait staff was good. Outdoor seating was nice. Kind of confusing at the entry. Not sure where to go. Not far from town.

The view is probably the best thing about this property. My wife and I debarked from the 7:00 PM ferry from South Baymouth on July 31st and arrived at the motel about 7:15 PM. Fortunately, we had a prior reservation since the entire town was fully booked due to the 3-day Canadian holiday. There was no one at the desk,... More

The staff were very attentive and friendly. The view is worth the trip...overlooking Lake Huron sunset. My wife ordered the white fish, which she said was great. We ordered crab cakes that were very good...wish there were more than 2 though. My steak was fatty, but this isn't a steak house which offers more choices. We ordered the chocolate italian... More

My lady friend and I tried to book a window seat for two at this restaurant overlooking the view of Big Tub Harbour and the West. The lady told us that she would try to have a seat for us but we were disappointed that we could not save one for us when we arrived at 6 o'clock. The food... More

We had lamb chops which tasted delicious. However, we felt it was overpriced. Most probably will not return because of the pricing.

I had the chicken stuffed with blue cheese drizzled with crush pecans and blueberry sauce. Fresh vegetables. My husband had the white fish with sautéed zucchini and vegetables. Our entree was a red pepper and tomato soup. It was delicious! We have eat here for dinner every time we are in Tobermory.

Really nice staff, great restaurant that opens at 5 PM and has a great view on sunset and departing ferry. Needs to be booked i advance as it is always full over the pick season.

We were looking for something a little more formal than the typical fish and chips places and pubs that are very common in Tobermory and were recommended to the Grandview Motel Dining Room. Well the view, especially at sunset, is amazing and made the visit worthwhile. The service was prompt and friendly and the restaurant was nicely appointed featuring local... More
