“Pizza is to die for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

I had a the pleasure of visiting Gore Bay towards the end of September and visited Buoys. I was working with the good people from Manitoulin Transport and they explained that we simply had to go to Buoys. The proprietor was incredibly cordial and the pizza was so good, I had to go back the following day. It really rounded out my experience and trip to Gore Bay. I highly recommend stopping in.

“Surprising”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

Last place for food in Gore Bay since it is end of season. Even though, apparently, our order ticket didn't make it to the kitchen, we enjoyed the food from local farmers although I wouldn't add hot banana peppers to the quesadillas. Not everyone's taste.

Service was friendly.

“Excellent pizza and a great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

After a beautiful trip by kayak from Maple Point to Clapperton Island in the North Channel of Lake Huron, we drove to Gore Bay for dinner. Another beautiful setting and the ample decks of the restaurant faced the marina and the setting sun. We thought we were tired of fish, which was why we picked a pizza place, but in the end we shared a pizza and we both had a side of fish, Cajun whitefish for me and lemon dill rainbow trout for B. Everything tasted and looked great. The staff were exceptionally friendly, and the service was attentive but not in-your-face. The perfect end to a great day on beautiful Manitoulin Island.
