We found this restaurant and decided to try it out. A very good choice. Our waiter was very knowledgable and the food was good. A quiet place to dine. This town is very empty but the food places are good. There is another place on the same block just as good.

Our first visit to Nathaniel's, we had a reservation for 8 people. A group walked in before us some of whom we knew. The hostess said. "Oh, the party for 8." And sat them. She attended us and we said we were the party of 8 with the reservation. Oops. She tried to make amends but we left and at... More

We dined there twice during our 4 day stay in Owen Sound. Jeff the waiter was super attentive giving us good advice on what to eat. We loved the mussels and the second day they had roast beef as special. The meal was cooked liked we ordered and was delicious the restaurant is nicely decorated and the ambiance very good.

We found Nathaniel's to be the best restaurant in Owen Sound. Our meal was delicious, service was great and the prices are really reasonable. Parking available on the street. Our table of 4 were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. My only complaint was the side of vegetables could have been a little warmer but all in all... More

High quality appetizers, delicious huge shrimp! Steaks were cooked to perfection and the simple wine list can save you a lot of money by keeping you from indulging in expensive wines. Great anniversary celebration!

I was very pleased with my dining experience at this restaurant. I had not eaten here for several years, due to personal reasons, but am glad I tried Nathaniel's again. My meal was delicious and I certainly will not wait as long to return. The only downside to this restaurant is the parking. We had to park on a side... More

We had an excellent dinner on Saturday night at Nathaniel's. The table was well situated. We were able to converse comfortably and enjoy the excellent offerings from the kitchen. I had the Thai shrimp dish and it was so delicious, with plump, meaty shrimp and yummy sauce with just the right amount of heat.

I have never been to Owen Sound before, and was looking for a nice restaurant to capture the essence of Owen Sound - and I only had a couple of hours to do it. I had a superb salmon dinner with white wine, and was pleasantly surprised by the bill. Where I come from, I would have to pay a... More
