Dinner for four

Enjoyed the atmosphere, service was attentive but not too much. The sunset was magnificent (even though the sun got in the eyes of one of our group!)

We came off the ferry from S. Baymouth. We thought we would have a special evening/night there for our Anniversary. Reception rushed. Room small. "King" bed was more a "Queen". Décor trying to be coastachic but sort of missing it. Bathroom tiny, dirty and outdated,. Shower nasty. Outside room chairs to watch sunset. Pretty venue/area. Dinner: not as great as... More

Small quaint restaurant attached to the motel. Nice sunset . Friendly staff but appeared to be a bit harried. Tasty scallop presentation but the scallops were overcooked. Wicked sweet potato fries

I did a separate review of the motel since i don't think the dining room should be lumped in to the same review. We had diner here one night of our stay. We had enjoyed it a few years ago and decided to return. Unfortunately the charm of the place was gone. The interior had been painted and unflattering colour... More

Beef and White fish were on the buffet. The several filest of beef had been cooked for different times so that rare, medium and well done were available. The rare was wonderful!

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...

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
