We found the place while on our boat and decided to dock and have lunch. Staff was very friendly, the terrasse is an very inviting beautiful spot right on the water. Unfortunately, we were disappointed with the food. The quiche was like the small frozen ones you find at Metro, thick crust that overpowered the taste. Seems to be always... More

The owners were very accommodating setting us up with a last minute reservation on August 9th. Our waitress, Emily, was excellent. The luncheon menu had a great selection. We were all very satisfied with our food selection. There is an outstanding view of the Trent Canal from their patio. We have reserved lunch again for the Labour day weekend with... More

I've eaten here twice since the new owners took over. It's more expensive now and not as good. Service was excellent and the food was okay but a bit pricey. I can see from the other reviews that the owner gets upset with any negative comments, well too bad as this site is for the good and bad. I had... More

This seemed like a dream, what a great setting, we stopped having had a great tour of the area , we sat next to the edge of the lake while small boats moored by the restaurant looking for refreshments, staff we're very friendly but we had to move because it was fully booked in 30 mins time. If you want... More

If you are looking for a casual spot to stop for lunch\dinner, this is the place. We usually stop by via boat and the staff will reserve you a docking space if you call ahead. Menu is fantastic but usually have the beef sandwich or special depending on the day. Nice selection of house wines and bottle choices. I tend... More

We returned to the Waters Edge restaurant after an absence of a few years as we had been told there was new owners. Overall our impression was positive and we enjoyed our evening. First of all ...the location .. situated dockside in the beautiful village of Bobcaygeon. Nothing finer and more relaxing as having a couple of drinks and watching... More

This is a great spot with and amazing view of the channel in Bobcaygeon. Our server Holly was very good and informed us of the daily special and soup. I chose the daily special of lobster taquitos and my husband chose the shaved prime rib on a bun. As recommended by our server we both chose the fries - big... More

Have you ever been to a place where the moment you walk in you feel like you are an intruder.. Nothing bugs me more than showing up at an eatery, without a 'reservation' and being told, yes they have space, but we have a large party coming in one and one-half hours....and I guess we can seat you... Not to... More

The location cannot be beat. Add to the location, the food and Shauna and Mike and a great evening will be in front of you. The pasta was perfect, the crab cakes and scallops were as good as the Maryland shore and Shauna makes the evening perfect. Another great evening.

This was our first "date night" after having two kids. The service team was top notch and the view was perfect. We had an amazing evening and will return again soon! Thank you to the staff for making our evening special :)
