We came away wondering why the restaurant wasn't more busy. We know that post-Thanksgiving is a quiet time in the county, but the restaurant was pretty much empty. The overall pleasing décor is slightly marred by the Coke machine in the corner, but the space isn't huge, so maybe that's the best... read more

We ride to Haliburton during the summer and always stop and visit Miden along the way. In the past we've passed the Grill on the Gull and never imagined what a wonderful restaurant and perfect patio existed in this small town. The food and service was wonderful and we later learned that bluegrass music was being played just next door... More

My husband and I live in Minden and work in the tourism industry. It is important for us to try out the local restaurants so that we can recommend (or in some cases, not recommend) the best ones. In August, it had been a while since we had eaten out and were needing a break, so we went to the... More

We stopped here for dinner on our way home from a long motorcycle ride. The patio overlooking the river, with the sun setting makes for a great view! I had penne with sausage. The homemade sauce was awesome! Although it could have been a bit hotter, the meal was excellent. Harry ate the Pickerel with rice and veggies. The fish... More

The first time we went was several yeas ago and it was really good. This time, it was just okay. I had the special, which was a stuffed chop. The chop itself was well cooked, very moist, but then they glopped on some canned gravy. It tasted like canned anyway! Very small portion of veggies. The prices are a bit... More

My 10 year old God Daughter and I went to the Grill on the Gull for dinner. I was very disappointed with our dinner and while I love the atmosphere will probably not return. I ordered the Giant Stuffed Portobello and my God Daughter ordered the Mac N Cheese off the kids menu. The mushroom was without flavour, wet and... More

Our first meal at the Grill on the Gull was really lovely. I had the gluten free crusted pizza, topped with lots of vegetables and ricotta cheese, and was thrilled with it. My friend had the pickerel and loved it as well. We were most impressed with the excellent service. Ellie the owner was friendly and helpful and made us... More

First off service was excellent. The food was amazingly fresh and prepared. I have had the experience of fine dining through out Canada and the USA and this was amazing. Everything was prepared to order. So it does take a little longer than some, but well worth it. I will definitely be returning to dine here again next time I... More
