The food was very good. A comfortable relaxing environment. We were celebrating a birthday and they made us feel special. Would recommend to try.

I have eaten there many times but our last visit was very disappointing...its menu basically all fried food and hamburgers. I was there with my family about 12 of us. Our food was served at diffferent times. One of the dishes(shepherds pie kind of thing)was frozen solid in the centre. The rest of the food was served either cold or... More

The cottage feel and view of the lake is really nice. We arrived before the restaurant opened and got a seat on the upper deck. Had to move the table in fear of going through the giant hole in the deck floor behind the chair. Beside us was a glass plate window which you are supposed to look through to... More

We, and our children and their families, have been customers of the Old Marina for over 13 years on a regular basis. However, this afternoon (July 27/16) my wife called the restaurant to make reservations for 20 family members for a Sunday birthday dinner in a few weeks. We were surprised and disgusted when we were told, “We don’t accept... More

This was my first visit to the Old Marina. My wife and our two companions had visited before and raved about the food and view. The four of us were there for lunch.
Yes, the view is excellent, while the limited food offerings are just so so, at least in my opinion. The outside patio is likely nice but on... More

If you are familiar with this part of Ontario - you'll be stunned to find this charming restaurant perched on the edge of a rather large lake. The interior is wide open with lots of spaces between tables. There is deck seating available but you'll probably have to wait at the bar first as they don't take reservations for parties... More

Great drinks and amazing atmosphere. Do not go their on a muggy day. No air flow on the patio, due to high glass inclosures. No circulation. But on a normal summer day, beautiful. The inside was boiling as if the AC was on the Frits. The drinks are amazing. They make a amazing Caesar and fantastic Pina Colada. We had... More

We love this food here. The burgers are amazing! The view of the lake is quite amazing. Even if you're just stopping in for a drink, it's worth it to sit outside and check out the view!

I decided to return to Old Marina and give them another chance after having a disappointing meal the first time. Nothing has changed. The view on the deck is fantastic and it really is a very nice spot to have a few drinks. The food leaves much to be desired. On this visit I gave the Cajun Turkey burger a... More
