Since the renovation this year, we've dined at The Galley several times, and have always left with happy, full bellies and a smile on our faces. Service was fantastic (yes, Cathy!), and the fish and chips delish! The new patio is right in line with the new menu — everything is really great and we look forward to frequenting next... More

It was overcast and the boy and I just didn't feel like cooking so we ambled on over to the Galley to try out their new patio. I could never figure out why someone would serve Halibut here when we're in the heart of beautiful whitefish country. Now I know. Because when it's done right, it's spectacular!!!! The service was...

We go here all the time and enjoy the food and now they have a new deck over the water which we love. We will keep coming back - way better than the Grill down the road. Great service as well.

Wow what a change a year can make. We visit this restaurant each year and this by far has been our best experience. Cathy our hostess seated us in the lounge chairs on there new waterfront deck. Glass rails allowed us to take in all the activity and blocked the breeze at the same time. On Cathy's suggestion we tried... More

My friend went to this resort with a Groupon. The resort would not accept it unless she paid an additional $300. I think that's called bait and switch. Not fair!

I stopped in to get some chicken strips for the kids & almost had a heart attack. $13 bucks for four skinny strips & a small portion of overcooked fries. I asked them if they had a kids menu & there response was to split the order in half. I kindly said no thanks & drove down the street to... More

Stopped in on the way home from Parry Sound. Unfamiliar with the area and unsure how far to the next food stop. Wasn't able to see the prices until inside - $16.95 for fish and chips! - otherwise would have left. Got take out. The food was good - ordered one pan fried fish and chips and one battered. It...

Chose Driftwood instead of The Dam Grill because friends had to wait the previous night 1.5 hrs to get a table and another 45 min for their meal. Heard that was typical. We were not disappointed with our choice. Four meals of pickerel and fresh cut fries which were excellent. Large portion of fish and felt good value for the... More
