After a long drive, we were delighted to relax on the patio and enjoy the view and delicious food. We had eaten a full lunch on the way to Tobermory,and decided to share two appetizers and a Greek salad. With the delicious biscuits, this was more than enough for two of us. The scallops were marvelous, and the calamari and... More

Fantastic restaraunt, with excellent food and service. A little more upscale than the typical fare found in the area. Definitely recommended.

To be fair, our waiter was awful. I watched other tables getting swift and more attentive service, and that would have gone a long way to make us feel better about the experience. The food was okay. My steak wasn't rare as I ordered, but it took so long to arrive, I just couldn't send it back. The sunset from... More

Biscuits were delicious, but we found that the georgian bay whitefish was overcooked. The edible flower and the grilled veggies were a nice touch. But not terribly impressed for the price that we paid.

The restaurant was recommended to us by the owner of the B&B where we were staying. The Grandview does not accept reservations, and though the weather was a bit poor that day everyone wanted a window seat. We were warned that on day with fine weather we would need to eat earlier or later to be accommodated. The food was... More

We stay in Tobermory several times a summer. We always save one evening meal for The Grandview. And it is a grand view. Try to have dinner at sunset...it is stunning. This last time we shared the baked oysters which were tasty, hot (temp) but not dried out. For dinner, we had the pecan crusted chicken and the lamb shank.... More

The food was good and the views are awesome. If you can go just before sunset and get a table on the patio. The night we were there the sunset was almost magical!

Oh to have a lovely meal that was not greasy pub food. We had the spaghetti and it was delicious. We would definitely go back. The meal is fair priced yet a tad high for our budget, seniors, yet worth it. We asked to have the music turned down and he took care of it right away, nice man. The... More
