The whistling duck, formerly known as dougalls on the bay has something for everyone on the menu, 13 beers on tap, great cocktails and views that simply can't be beat! Best patio in town!

New owner took over this spring and what an improvement. Friendlier staff, More prompt service and much better tasting food. Beautiful views of Lake Ontario. Great to sit outside and watch the swans, geese and ducks on the lake.
