“Don't expect much...”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

We were at Grand Bend on Canada Day to watch the sunset and the firework.
We had dinner here only because all other restaurants on Main St. were full or long line up. This one had a line too, but people only waited for the seats at the patio. We didn’t mind to sit inside the restaurant so we got a seat after a few minutes wait. The place was busy, not tidy and kind of disorganized. Most dishes on the menu were grill meat on a bun, price between $11-16. My family members ordered pork, chicken and I had roast beef, with Swiss cheese on the bun. All the meats on our plates were over cooked. I was lucky to have the salad and the honey soya dressing just helped to balance the salty sauce on the beef. No further comment, as this would be only one time visit…

Note to summer sunset watchers: if you choose to eat at the restaurants but not able to get seats at the two restaurants in front of the beach,you better have dinner finished before 8:30pm as sunset time was between 8:30-9:00pm during summer time.

“SUCKS”
Reviewed May 4, 2012

OVer the years this place has gone down hill..... which is upsetting.... last time I went it was raining, leaking onto our table and our server laughed when we told her. Some food was cold.... NEVER order the chicken fingers.... you will be in for a surprise....

“going downhill”
Reviewed February 5, 2012

This place has a great patio, great beachy feel and has been a town favourite for years! However, we've noticed in the last 2 or 3 summers that their food quality has really gone downhill. Portions are getting smaller and smaller and lots of old favourites just don't taste the same. Sad to see another Grand Bend staple fading away.
