Description: The Grill will be closed for scheduled maintenance from Oct 9 2017 until the new year! Stay tuned for an re-open date! Excellent freshly prepared meals served in a warm, friendly setting with outstanding waterfront views. Also enjoy a large over-water and boat-up patio open May-Oct with tropical drinks, great service and a Caribbean vibe. The Grill is open year-round and is also a terrific fall and winter destination with large hearty meals and front row seats for the parade of migrating wildlife stopping off for a rest in the open water visible out every window in the Grill.

Excellent food, Great service and beautiful view. The staff are great, unlike the staff in our local hotel. Manager is accommodating and nice to deal with.

We had boated from Orillia to Port Severn and were enjoying a couple days at a nearby cottage resort. It was a ten minute walk from our cottage to The Dam Grill but was a nice evening so decided dinner out would be nice. When we sat down for dinner we noticed the sky was getting ugly and lightning had begun. We enjoyed our dinner very much, the food was great. By the time we were ready to leave the sky had opened up and it was raining so hard there was no way we were going to be able to walk back. We asked at the bar if there was a taxi service in Port Severn and the manager personally looked after us. He even had to call his wife to bring the car over and he then gave us a ride back to our cottage. So as you can imagine we were very pleased with the service we received.

I was staying in the area with the family this long weekend Aug 2-5. A friend of ours told us about the Dam Grill. The name immediately caught our attention and made us want to check it out! We went with a group of 6 of us and were not disappointed. The place was amazing! We asked to sit along their waterfront patio which was in high demand, but was well worth the moderate wait. (Where else can you walk around a beautiful marina along the water to kill some time.The staff was fun and great and the food was AWESOME, second to none and priced resonable! Great place for the family and friends!! We are definitely going back and will definitely make it a regular occurrence!! Check out The DAM Grill!! Thanks guys!

Went on Civic weekend. . Were seated quickly on the patio and served quick also. View was great. Liked watching the boats go by. Husband got club house sandwich and said it was very very good. I got chicken tenders wraps with salad and its was good also. Second time here and would definitely recommend.

My wife and I were looking forward to a leisurely drive to Port Severn and lunch at The Dam Grill. We ended up having a great meal across the water at The Inn at Christies Mill

Here is what happened. We arrived a few minutes after twelve o’clock and we were put on a waiting list for a table. We requested one by the water. There was one other couple in line behind us. The first table that became available was in the centre of the deck, not the location of our choice. We told the hostess that we would wait for a table by the water and they could give the table in the centre to the couple behind us in the line. There were several tables that would be coming available in a short while.

Fast forward, twenty minutes and there are three tables available all of which met our seating request. One group of six was now waiting in line. Tables were moved around and one moved to the centre of the deck. (that is right where we told them we did not want to sit more than twenty minutes earlier) The hostess said that we would not be seated at one of the tables we requested earlier. Why didn’t the hostess they tell us that when we made the request.

I spoke to the manager, he was less than helpful despite the fact there were several vacant tables where we wanted to sit. His attitude seemed to be that he would not accede to our request no matter what.

So, I said, “No problem, there are other establishments nearby but rest assured I will post our experience on Trip Advisor.” We proceeded to walk to our car realizing it was a waste of time to discuss anything with the manager. He did not take kindly to this and proceeded to berate us while following us across the parking lot all the way to our car.

We got in the car and drove to The Inn at Christies Mill were we had excellent lunch “seated next to the water”.

I see on Trip Advisor that we are not the first people to have a similar experience.
