Went with friends for a late lunch. Food was OK but a little pricey. They actually charged us for Frank's Hot sauce. :(

Hi I wondered if it would be possible to get a copy of a sample lunch time menu -- are visiting Midland in June & would be interested in seeing what you have to offer on the menu. Thank you Fiona S.

The Boathouse Eatery is located at the town Docks overlooking beautiful Georgian Bay. With numerous areas to sit from inside dining, outdoor patio, upstairs private dining, we're sure you will have a favourite section. Our upstairs dining room is great for private bookings of parties of up to 45 people. Open for lunch and dinner seven days a week and live entertainment every Friday & Saturday night. One of Georgian Bay's best waterfront restaurants.
