Description: Excellent freshly prepared meals served in a warm, friendly setting with outstanding waterfront views. Also enjoy a large over-water and boat-up patio open May-Oct with tropical drinks, great service and a Caribbean vibe. The Dam Grill is open year-round and is also a terrific fall and winter destination with large hearty meals and front row seats for the parade of migrating wildlife stopping off for a rest in the open water visible out every window in the Grill.

“Just what you want on a sunny summer day!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

We visited the Dam Grill on Canada Day, just because we were passing through Port Severn at lunch time, on the way North. What luck, it was terrific!! The staff were all dressed in red, embracing the Canada Day fun without ever losing their professionalism. We commented at the time how young the staff seemed, but how well trained they all were -- Well done whoever looks after that! I asked our waitress for her recommendation and the beef dip I got was delicious. Our friends shared the nachos, and it was a huge pile with generous toppings. I don't remember what my husband had, probably because he ate it so fast that I didn't get a bite :-) There were some interesting beers on tap too, for an added bonus. And all this good stuff hasn't even mentioned the fact that you're sitting on a nice breezy deck overlooking the blue water and the shiny boats of the marina --- really, does it get any better than that for Canada Day?

“Fabulous food, scenery and atmosphere in Port Severn - finally.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

After spending a weekend in Port Severn every summer for the last 18 years, we were optimistic when we noticed The Dam Grill on our walk through town. This restaurant is part of Bush's Marina, on the east side of the bridge at lock 45.

The menu is extensive - wraps, salads, burgers, ribs, chicken plus delicious salmon, steak, etc.

The restaurant has tables both inside and outside on the water. The staff (and there is alot) are fast, friendly and know the menu well. The prices are very reasonable.

We were there for both dinner (and watched a beautiful sunset) and lunch and loved both experiences.
