The Waterfront is a long time addition to Pickering and the East G.T.A. Located at Frenchman's Bay overlooking beautiful Lake Ontario. The Waterfront features one of the most desirable patios with a view in an undeniable setting. Take in the atmosphere as you enjoy Brunch, Lunch, Dinner or Cocktails, offering you a casual and comfortable dining atmosphere featuring a modern, yet classic inspired menu. The Waterfront is a Perfect Spot for a "Year Round" Getaway. Est.1996
