Had some nice trout while waiting for the next ferry. We sat outside with a great view of the lake and the ferry terminus. Kind of a funky bar & restaurant but it was really convenient and the food was pretty good.

We visited the Dock 'N' Dock twice during our stay in Balfour. The lake front patio is perfect to watch the Ferry arrivals and departures. The food and service was fantastic. A little pricey, but worth it for a beach front location. We can not...More
