Location and contact

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.

This is in a lovely spot right on the harbour front. We were sat in the back which was ideal for me as the music in the bar and surrounding area was too loud for me. I'm coeliac and must have a gluten free diet....More
