Reasonable and pleasantly quiet lunch in the hotel's coffee-shop/restaurant. Lunch menu very restricted. No actual dishes apart from short-order. Terrace tables in summer overlooking the sound. WiFi.

Hi captainedit, Thank you for posting this review of our restaurant. It is great to see that you enjoyed the beautiful location during a peaceful lunch. It is true that our lunch menu lacks entree style meals and that is more of a reflection of our market. We try to offer a variety of options including vegetarian and gluten free... More

Enjoyed some wonderful lamb prepared perfectly medium rare with wife one evening. More than willing to accommodate our dietary restrictions. Service was very good. Patio provides a wonderful view of the sunset across the harbor. One of the nicest places in Owen Sound.

We had a complimentary breakfast due to our stay at the Best Western that this restaurant shares real estate with. The view is lovely and the seating in the very clean and bright restaurant is extremely comfy. The waitresses were friendly, cheerful and efficient! The food was quite good, but a little on the pricey side for my liking. Not... More

This is a great place for breakfast in Owen Sound. The service is excellent and the prices are good. We suggest the omelets or eggs benedict avacodo. This is a place that we always visit when we are in Owen Sound. They have a nice view of the Bay as well from the restaurant.

Ate late dinner and early breakfast here on a business trip, nothing special about it other than very clean. Bar is very small but restaurant area was good. They closed at 10PM which is a bit early if you get there late. Breakfast was continental and also nothing special but sufficient.
