We eat here most of the time we are in Grand Bend. Food and service are always good. Always good to make reservations or eat late to avoid crowds.

I was there a couple of weeks ago. The fresh fish and chips was good. My only criticism is that the restaurant is very noisy.

We were dying for a good home cooked meal and we found it here. Amazing food and great daily specials. I had the meatloaf and my wife had stuffed trout. All the food was fresh and hot. Delicious and great service.
