What did I mean regarding dependable? Well the menus does not change much from year to year. The coffee is always on and fairly good. The burgers are great. Deserts are good. Breakfast is fast and good year in and year out. The prices are very reasonable. No surprises it's dependable (a good thing). Well situated in the heart of... More

This is a great local diner and a favourite of most of the town. This is where the community gathers and it shows. Hometown food, daily specials, homemade pies, and great value.

I couldn't eat anything in this restaurant. The quality was quite appalling. We had a tasteless hamburger and frozen french fries - this choice because I knew that the other items would be suspect. However, this was not edible. Nothing more to day.

Traveling the Bruce Peninsula we stopped in Lion's Head. There were two visible restaurants. We chose this one to have lunch. Standard small town restaurant with standard fare. We ordered the hamburger. It appeared to be home made and was tasty. The service was fine and the restaurant was reasonably busy.

The lady who ran the restaurant (I think she was the owner) was considerate enough to give my husband a free meal because he said his grilled chicken sandwich wasn't grilled enough. Atmosphere is nice and cozy. Good food but not too many healthy options to explore.

Small family diner in Lion's Head. Have been several times over the summer of 2016. Service was quick and friendly. Food was good and plenty of it. Coffee refills were offered several time (important to me) Will be back.

Our summer cottage in the Bruce Peninsula is maybe fifteen minutes south of Lion's Head up a delightfully leafy stretch of Bruce County 9, so as often as not when we don't feel like cooking supper we head up to Marydale's. She is a local institution. Make no mistake, fine dining this ain't, but this is where us locals come... More
