Great menu choices and value! I've been here several times and the food is well prepared and tasty. Sometime it takes a little while to come however.

We visited this favourite haunt, on our way home from the centurion bike race.... This is not our first time here, living an hour away, we love to visit aprés skiing.... Never a complaint about food, very tasty and the homemade soups to die for but tonight has ended a string of bad experiences! One night we came at peak time and patiently waited to be seated, had another pushy crowd lie about where in the line up they were, the waitress knew them and let them through,! Next time time orders were screwed up and waitressing staff were unrepentant ! This time our food was mediocre and the waitress was unable to take a simple order from the specials, asked three times if it was with rice...( no! Noodles!) only to have it arrive with , you guessed it, rice! My next beer was on the house.
Sad to report this was a favourite spot with dependable service and hearty good meals, only to slip into a average eatery with sub average service. What has happened? Saddened to see it slip, will have to go else where it seems.

We had a good lunch in this out-of-the-way hole-in-the-wall hangout: hamburger with mounds of fries, fish and chips, chicken wrap all prepared with panache. This is the place to stop if you are in the area.

Went to the Leaky Canoe for dinner but was not enthused with the food. The place is old and would be a good hang out if you lived in the area but it would be better for you to drive to Thornbury where good places abound. I prefer Meaford to stay as it is a pretty place but better to pack a picnic lunch and hang out by the lake.

Stopped at the Leeky Canoe on the way back from the Bruce Peninsula. Right on the main street, across from city hall. Typical local pub atmosphere. Service was prompt. I had the mandori wrap - grilled chicken, smoked bacon, various cheeses, lettuce and tomato wrapped in a tortilla with a sauce. Choices of fries, salad, or soup. Salad had greens, carrots, peppers. Dressing served on the side. Travel companion had the flatbread with toppings. Both meals were deemed excellent. A few beers on tap, served by the pint or half-pint.
