Great breakfast & lunch (only) place just outside of town (at the Owen Sound Airport - in the "Terminal Building" - no big sign on the highway). Worth finding - reasonable prices and great food & service. Our favourite breakfast/lunch spot in the area - bar none. (Been there countless times - also in their old location at Kilsyth)

I've eaten there many times and enjoy food, service, environment. It is an open bright place with great windows to watch the small planes landing and taking off. This makes this place unique. The food is simple but always delicious.The staff are friendly and lots of fun. Great little place to take guests or family.

First time eating at Tilly's. Great little spot inside the Billy Bishop Airport. Great view of the runway and the servers seemed to always put you in the window seats ("I've got a couple of window seats opening up - let me clean one off for you!") Hubby and I had the eggs Benedict and they were delicious. Hot thermos... More

This is a great fly-in destination for general aviation pilots. Lots of parking for planes, great food, and very friendly service. It was quite warm in the restaurant on June 19 (the ceiling fans were not operating and the air conditioning was marginal), but the warm and attentive service made up for it. My turkey sandwich on thick, delicious multigrain... More

Had a standard breakfast. Food was very good and service was good. I would have given five stars, put felt the waiter was a wee bit over the top..... Nice he was friendly as apposed to not friendly though.

Tilly's is located at the Owen Sound airport. While dining you can watch incoming and outgoing airplanes (if some are in the air). The food is excellent staff are all friendly. The owner chef is a pilot himself. Good for all occasions.

Took my Mom, Stepdad and my Wife out for Mother's Day brunch and although Tilly's does not reserve tables on the weekends we took a chance and got in without having to wait. Gord, the head waiter/owner? was in fine form and added to the enjoyment with his witty repertoire that matched anything my Stepdad could muster. I enjoyed my... More

It was a stellar day for brunch at Tilly's in the Owen Sound Airport. Beautiful sunshine for Mothers Day. I had the Hungryman Breakfast with what should become "World Famous" Homemade Cheesebread toast. My wife had the skillet breakfast. I have to say - the place was packed for Mothers Day- and the food was coming out like clockwork! And...... More

Stopped by for breakfast on May 07,2016, witnessed staff eating in the kitchen, chewing her food with her mouth open, waitress rubbing her nose then not washing her hands, the cook chewing his finger nail spitting them on the floor. Brought my concerns to the restaurant through their website, the owner replied back telling me not to come back.
