The only hold back from this being the best restaurant in Bobcaygeon is because it is not on the water.

My family loves this place for fish and chips. I love their shrimp and chips. But most of all I love their dessert menu! Snickers pie, OMG!

We were hungry. Greek salad and fries were ok. Had heard rave reviews about this restaurant and expected a bit more.

Have been several times, in fact the kids like to give us Gift Certificates for our "favourite restaurant". The fish & chips is always fresh and delicious. Shrimp is tasty too! IF you have room there's an excellent dessert selection. Very busy in summer so I recommend reservation.

The Halibut n Chips I had was delicious but as it was a take out order I assumed I'd be given eating utensils which I was not. They sure give you a pile of chops but not a very big piece of fish....

The halibut and chips are so delicious that it is difficult to try the other amazing menu items, so regular visits are recommended. Menu has something for everyone and the daily specials are always a good choice. Good beer menu. Very family friendly. Usually busy on Fridays and Saturdays, so reservations are recommended. Great atmosphere...casual yet classy. Decor is interestingly... More
