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

My spouse actually couldn't eat the meal. Mine was okay but fairly bland. Beautiful spot overlooking the river. So much potential.

Due to the results of the Gull River and town of Minden flood, this restaurant has been closed for months. Renovations have been ongoing and they have announced the reopen date of tomorrow. This was one of the best restaurants in the area and enjoyed each time went. Will be going next week.

We visited for dinner and were quite disappointed. It was quite pricey but the menu sounded OK. The wait staff was very friendly. All four of us were very disappointed with our good. If we visit Minden again we will give it a miss. I don't think they have been open too long so perhaps there are still a few... More

Friendly wait staff but food pretty awful and overpriced. How can a mediocre spinach salad cost $13? The duck breast had the consistency and taste of an old shoe that was too close to the bonfire and the waitress brought along a steak knife to saw through. Veg were soggy. The location is very nice though, especially if you get... More

Stumbled on this little nook of a restaurant and were pleasantly surprised. Each mean we had was plentiful and the taste was excellent. There was a decent selection of menu items, the bread was good but the only limitation was that the dishes needed to be a little warmer. Service was friendly and it was very relaxed and pleasant within... More
