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 :).

My husband & I were out for a ride on our motorcycles and decided to stop for lunch. Waitress (Kathy) offered great service and food was great also. Will go back!

We have had good experiences on the several occasions that we have dined here. The selection is good, food quality is above average but the prices are a little higher. Overall, this place is worth a visit.

JFTH has been around a long time and it's famous for their excellent food. The fish and chips are awesome but they also have many other good dishes. We have been coming here for over 20 years and it's kept its great food and prices. You won't get fish and chips like this in many places. It's worth the drive... More

something for everyone - fish, chicken, meat ; seemed to be full of locals - always a good sign; the host is dressed like a blend of johnny cash and john cougar mellencamp which was fun! prices were reasonable
