Love this place! We visit each year and the staff remembers us by name. Our dog is welcome to dine with us in the outdoor patio area. Quick, friendly service. Good value.

I will start with the positive - happy atmosphere, good service, smiling faces everywhere around - these are the reasons I decided to give it a try. The bad - food... Sorry, but the fish was too dry and almost tasteless, I felt like eating more then once frozen kind. Overall I would give 5 stars for service and atmosphere... More

My mother and I took a little road trip up to Tobermory, ON. On our first night here, we ate at a little place called Shipwreck Lee's. Shipwreck Lee's is a great family atmosphere with excellent servers with peppy attitudes! The food was great and quick too! The main thing they have is fish and chips, but they have other... More

This place was good. It actually better then it can look from the outside. Service was very good and very friendly with our kids.

This is definitely a fun place with good food. However, we ordered the great lakes whitefish (which is rather pricey) and were served the still tasty but cheaper Alaskan whitefish. Great lakes whitefish is totally different than Alaskan whitefish, I know because I grew up near and travel regularly around the northern great lakes. I've enjoyed great lakes whitefish most...

Eight of us are visiting Tobermory and fell in love with this place. Lets just say this is not your ordinary restaurant. Pirate Theme, never seen a staff like this ever. The main waiter was like a professional actor or comedian and we had excellent service, amazing food and atmosphere. They have been in business for over 25 years...That's not... More

We go to Shipwreck Lee's everytime we visit Tobermory. My first visit was about 12 years ago and I've made several trips since then. AMAZING FOOD. The fish and chips or poutine are unreal but the slow cooked ribs (4 hours) served with Cajun spiced corn and fries made my day. We've also had the mozzarella sticks and calamari. DRINK... More

We have been coming here for the past 8 years. At least twice or three times. I like to bring friends and family up to Tobermory for the scenery and finally a great all you can eat fish dinner at Shipwreck Lee's. The restaurant itself is small and not to inviting. The washrooms aren't to inviting! The outdoor patio is... More

We eat here every year in Aug for the last 12 yrs since we found this place on a family trip. Our girls love the food and the service is amazing.
