Burgess is a summer time staple of Leamington. We try to make it a stop every time we are back home visiting family.

Had a small walnut ice cream cone and it was huge. I'm not sure what size large would be. The restaurant building was there when I was a child back in the 60s. The dock and beach is a shadow of what it used to be when Heinz was loading vast lake freighters. There is a new sign, but the building has the same sagging roof line is underneath it. Prices are fair.

Since this is where it all began, Burgess 30 years ago, my husband and I felt it was most romantic thing to do - weather was kind, food was perfect - now hoping for another 30!

Can't tell anyone the exact date of our last visit other than it was during the summer of 2013. Burgess has been a part of the Leamington lake side landscape for many years and is a hub of activity especially during the weekends and evenings all through the summer months. They serve all the usual hamburgs and fries along with their famous foot long hotdogs and hundreds of ice cream cones. You place your order at one window and pickup at another. Then you either walk away with your purchase, sit in your car or at one of the picnic tables along the side.
