Bayfield is a lovely little town on Lake Huron. A little like Niagara-on-the-Lake without the huge crowds and a little more laid back. The Black Dog Bistro sits across from the town Square in a great location with charming patio and roomy indoor seating. This was our first visit. The menu posted outside looked really good so we went in.
Between the four of us we had:
a super caesar salad
a tasty beet/goat's cheese salad on a generous arugula base
a gravalax on warm potato salad
mushroom and brie broiled onto thick coat fresh bread toasts
duck confit taco's
pork belly taco
Scotch Egg with spicy tomato relish
Scotland Burger with blue cheese and onion rings
Each of these items was a small plate (apart from the burger) but the salads were generously sized if not American "climbable" sized. What linked them all was a creativity, flair and layering of flavours that made them most satisfying. Overall the menu was amazing. 6-8 burgers, 8-10 apps and small plates and another 8 entrees, all of them looked really appetizing. I think I could have picked any at random and been happy!
We never saw the dessert menu but I'm sure it was similarly awesome but if not, there is a great fro-yo & ice cream place across the street.
Did I mention they have a dozen beers on tap (some really interesting) and another 20+ in bottles and a pretty good wine list too? We walked out of the Black Dog totally sated and happy. Price was very reasonable for such a stunning meal. Do yourself a favour a take a very pleasant drive in the country this summer and have a lunch you will look forward to repeating.
