The servers at the Halibut are very attentive, and professional. The food and presentation is never disappointing. Great work guys, keep it up.

As always it was excellent and was topped off with the best coconut cream pie ever (and I have had a lot of it!). I have always loved the food here but I noticed when friends came to visit us for a weekend they always ask if we can go to "the halibut" for dinner. They often have a steak... More

We went to this restaurant years ago and decided not to go again, but I broke down and tried it today. Still not impressed. When we arrived we had to seat ourselves and other couples did the same. I had to go and get a server. The fish and fries leave a major greasy taste after eating. It took hours... More

We find this to be one of the better restaurants in the Bobcaygeon area. It is usually busy at dinner time in the summer so reserve a table before you go. They have a good menu but the fish and chips are my favourite.

I have been coming to this fish restaurant in Bobcaygeon for years and honestly, it never disappoints. It's a top spot to eat if you are visiting the Kawarthas - tourists and locals luv it, so getting a table for dinner in the summer means making a reservation. On this visit we were a party of 5 and ordered a... More

We went there for supper because we were attending the FESTIVAL OF TREES. And keeping with the season the restaurant was beautifully decorated for Christmas. The atmosphere was warm and cosy ,the service was impeccable, and the food was hot ,tasty, and well presented. The portions were generous and we're definitely worth the money.. We will be putting this restaurant... More
