“Charming on the water”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

This is a charming restaurant right on the wharf. The menu was extensive with numerous gluten free options. The food was freshly made and served in a timely manner. I also had the sticky toffee pudding for dessert which was wonderful. Service was excellent. The view overlooks the harbour

“Lovely little birthday party!”
Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

We just had a little tea party for my daughter's fifth birthday, and she and her friend had such a great time - the food was great, the service attentive, and the special cake we ordered for her was so lovely! Thank you!

After looking forward to lunch due to excellent reviews on Tripadvisor found the place closed even though Sunday hours listed as 12-6pm. Bummer!

“A Quiet and Relaxing Venue”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We visit Gravenhurst a number of times a year and always enjoy an afternoon tea or dinner at the Blue Willow Tea Room. Had a great dinner for 4 on this past occasion. NY Strip Steaks and Stuffed Chicken Breasts were great. With desert, $120.00. Great service. Highly recommend it.

“Great for lunch”
Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

Loved the grilled Brie and cranberry sandwich served with salad. Loved the scone, so tender and moist. Loved the Queen Elizabeth tea. Loved everything about this place including the great view of the lake and steamboat arrival. Would love to try their Saturday night dinner menu.
