We had a group of about 50 people. While the food was wonderful, service was very slow. Some of the kids waited 2.5 hours for chicken fingers and fries, many meals were missed in preparation and staff became frustrated and rude. Would recommend for a very small group but they do not have the staff to accommodate large groups.

We are not capable of serving a group of 50 people in our quiet little restaurant and this was proven with your group. We had an honest discussion when you were booking and decided to try to accommodate... More

I have recommended to my co-workers that we meet and dine at Bishop's Landing several times for both lunch and dinner. Both times the food was excellent and the staff very accomodating.On all occasions everyone agreed with me that this was a great choice.

You would not expect great food in a small hotel, however, Bishop's Landing is a real gem in Owen Sound.
