We were staying in the cottages down by the marina and walked up to the restaurant. The server was very nice and pleasant and the pub food was good. It was very busy and was recommended to us by friends that had been here when they were passing though on highway 21.

It seemed like a popular place as the parking lot was always full. We found it dirty, lots of flies. Waitress was friendly and provided good service considering the number of tables she had. Large menu. Food was just okay and pricey for the quality.

Our car club, based in London, Ontario, made the pleasant trip to Bayfield for our monthly meeting. Even the worst navigators had no trouble finding the place. The entrance is right off Hwy 21 just north of the bridge over the Bayfield River. Plenty of parking. The menu included seafoods, 5 selections of pasta, 11 different sandwiches, 9 salads to... More

Great menu, lots to choose from, a little something for everyone. Food was pretty good. I recommend the fish & chips. Try to sit outside, it's nice right on the marina.

Stayed a night in Bayfield for a get away and went to the Docks... We have been there before and it hasn't changed.... Great food and location. I had a seafood pasta with dill Alfredo... Excellent. Server was friendly and informative... Always a sure bet for food and service. Keep up the good work

Here in Bayfield for a wedding on Sat. Wife found the mushroom, swiss bacon burger a bit dry, but totally filling. My son and I had the daily special, calamari, local whitefish and a blackened fillet of salmon. We were both filled, son thought just alittle hot on the blackening, the veg side was skimpy compared to mine. The whitefish... More

Girlfriend had the liver and onions she liked it very much. I had something else which ended up giving me an upset stomach for 4 days. The window booth we sat at was just a breading ground for flies - someone should tell them to get fly arresters or offer the customer gratis flyswatters we counted 18 flies around us... More

This is a fun place to go on a weekend night. You can sit outside or in. We sat outside to enjoy the weather and drinks. They do not rush you to leave. I like this place much better than the ASHWOOD down the road.

I ate here twice during a two day visit to Bayfield. I ate the Reuben and a hamburger. Both were very good and were priced right.
