We had a romantic dinner here for our anniversary, and the food was very good and the staff were attentive and helpfull. We had made reservations to be at the window but on this evening it was not necessary. However, when it is a hockey game night, the place is packed. The arena is very close by so keep that... More

It is a nice place to go if you want a relaxed quieter restaurant. The food is good and the service is as well. The servers are most pleasant and helpful. I have only been there for lunch.

My husband Brian and myself recently spent Thanksgiving weekend at Best Western Inn on the Bay. The Bishop's Landing restaurant is located in the hotel and provides a great continental breakfast that is included in the price of your hotel room. We had a delicious steak dinner on the evening that we arrived, the 8th. Melissa was our server and... More

If you have ever driven around on a Friday or Saturday evening looking for a great restaurant, only to find them all full, then look no further than Bishop's Landing. Cozy in the winter, amazing view of the Bay in the summer, plus food on the menu that everyone will love. Amazing service, friendly staff to boot. Love this place.

We looked for somewhere with fish for dinner and identified this spot as being very highly rated. In the Best Western hotel, they were doing a good business on a weeknight but service was attentive and pleasant. The view of the bay from the restaurant was very nice. We both had the brushetta whitefish and found it flavorful and delightful.

This is a very nice restaurant. Lovely view of the bay. Food is tasty. Service is generally quite good, depending on server. Does a nice job of accommodating dietary issues. Especially good buffet on special occasions!

As guests at the hotel we ate in the restaurant our first day in Owen Sound. The food is ok...a bit over priced. It was good...but we didn't eat there again since we were in town to visit Owen Sound, not just stay at the hotel.

We were here for a week and often chose to eat here rather then go elsewhere. Not just for convenience, we stayed for delicious food, good variety and reasonable prices. Everything we had off the menu was great. Recommend the breakfast, burgers, and my favourite was the avocado blt. Sunday brunch was excellent. Very nice to sit on the patio... More
