If you want a real treat without breaking your bank account, go to The Waterfront. You may have the pleasure of mussels, steak or anything in between. Bonus - you don't have to drive into the city (Toronto) for a Toronto-type meal and service.

This is a super restaurant for lunch, brunch and dinner. The atmosphere,view, service and surroundings within walking distance are well worth your visit.not only to the restaurant but shops as well. There is also the Pickering Beach 2 minutes from the restaurant, fishing, walking and sail/motor boats, which have access to this area and restuarant. You can spend an entire day enjoying this location..

I really enjoy the Waterfront Bistro. We head there a lot in the summer as the patio overlooks the lake. The patio is on the main level and has an upper level. Menu is reasonably priced and food is good. We were there for Valentines Day this year and the food was over the top fantastic. They even opened a bottle of wine for me that normally they wouldn't unless you purchased the whole bottle.
I've also rented out the upper room for a Celebration of Life. Elaine was just fabulous in helping me plan everything out and she provided great food for the guests and wonderful service. I highly recommend the Waterfront Bistro.

The relatively recent renovations have made this restaurant much more welcoming. There is not the fine dining area anymore or the total "bar"ish area, instead, a great combination. The food was delicious, the service was excellent, and having a table by the fireplace was welcome given the chilly weather outside when me and my friends visited in the fall.

Great place in Pickering for dinner, drinks or brunch. The food is always hot, the service is great and there is always a great group of folks in the restaurant. Very friendly staff and the service is outstanding. Also nice to eat up on the deck overlooking the water.. The roast beef is awesome, the Brushetta is mouth-watering and the beef dip is so tender it melts in your mouth.
