“Beautiful setting”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Gores Landing is rather off the beaten track, on the shores of Rice Lake 20 miles north of Lake Ontario.The Victoria Inn is a century-old building, which has manage to survive in a place that relies on the tourist trade, swimming and boating in the summer and ice fishing in the winter. Gores Landing is not exactly where the fashionable go to relax. ts main attraction is a beautiful terrace perched 50 feet above the lake with a lovely lawn in between. Dinner on the terrace looking at the sun set behind the lake is one of the most beautiful views imaginable, however. The food is tasty and reliable, though it doesn't vary much, and the service is very pleasant. The oddity, especially in June and July when the evenings are long, is that you can't be seated after 7 pm. This probably reflects its location, where 6 o'clock dinners are the standard.

This is a lovely place for a memorable outing. Lunch out on the patio on a warm day is amazing. Good food with a spectacular view of Rice Lake.

Even though we attended in October which is good, my favourite time is in the warm weather out on the porch. Most enjoyable. The sound on boats on the water. Beautiful atmosphere. Trout or Pickerel a must.
