Some friends in Bobcaygeon introduced us to this little gem in Bobcaygeon. Though I didn't indulge in any of fish, I saw a lot of smiling faces. They had the obligatory veggie burger or alfredo for us vegetarians, but it was the steak and seafood this place was obviously known for as diners were lineup outside waiting to be seated.... More

We have tried their food more than once and it has consistently been wonderful. The oil is fresh and not stale; the fish is awesome tasting and the servers very polite and friendly. Will go back again and again. Oh yes. If you have not tried their coconut shrimp, you are missing a lot.

Other than the clever name this restaurant is very mediocre. The staff were lovely, but the food was tasteless. I took my parents over from Lindsay for a change from their regular fish and chips which they love (Ziggy's in Lindsay) and we all agreed we should have stayed home!

We made a reservation for Friday night dinner. Our table was not ready and three families who were walk-in - were ushered to tables ahead of us. The most appalling incident was when a woman came to the door between the dining area and the reception and pushed my 80 year old mother in law!!! Out of the way to... More

My friends and I went to 'The Halibut' last night for a nice dinner, as it came highly recommended on trip advisor. Our greeting was interesting an older man greeted us at the door who seemed nice enough but with a slightly rude tone when we said we didn't have reservations. When we get to our table our waitress (who's... More

Being the cheeseburger fanatic that I am and being somewhat of an expert of 60 some years, this was the best cheeseburger that I have ever had! by far! When in Bobcaygeon, be sure to treat yourself to a delicious meal at Just for the Halibut..

The seafood platter was very good and the halibut was lightly battered and flaky. Enjoyed it so much that we went to dinner there twice!

I took my dad here for his birthday. The breaded halibut was excellent! The wait staff was super friendly. A must if you are dropping by Bobcaygeon. We will definitely visit again :).
