“Broad and interesting menu ....”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

Excellent food, reasonably priced and close to tourist attractions. Fried pickerel sandwiches ,Reuben's and Greek salads were all good. Extraordinary selection of single malts the likes of which I've never experienced.

“Great dinner!”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

The food was amazing. We started off with the mussels in the white wine sauce it was so good! For dinner I had the fish it was done to my liking. My boyfriend had the pork which was amazing. The atmosphere was loud but we did go on the long weekend and they were packed with reservations! Which is always r great sign. I will be back for those mussels that's Forsure!

“And I don't even like fish that much”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We enjoyed another lovely dinner at Bistro by the Bay yesterday evening. The pickerel was perfectly cooked and beautifully presented, and the staff friendly and helpful, despite how busy they were. I look forward to any more visits to this restaurant.

“Great Lunch!”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

My husband, myself and another couple had a wonderful lunch here last Thursday! We sat outside on the lovely porch! The servers were all very pleasant and we also had a very nice chat with the owner (Patty). My husband and I had the halibut and chips, so good, very light batter with a very generous portion of fish! The fries were great too! If your in Parry Sound....please go and enjoy!

“Good food, service can be slow at peaks”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

This is probably one of the more pleasant places to eat in Parry Sound...with a lovely patio and view of the harbor. Unfortunately being right across the street from the Island Queen Cruise dock means that when the Island Queen unloads, they may be swarmed with a lot of hungry people! We were lucky and arrived 15 minutes before the cruise docked. I enjoed the food, especially the local touches, such as the fresh pickerel.
