We stopped by for Friday brunch and were seated immediately on the front patio, which was well shaded and looked out onto a quiet street. Staff were very accommodating, attentive, and welcoming. I had the breakfast quiche which was delicious. There is also a very...nice backyard area with outdoor seating and the cutest pub on the basement floor.More

The atmosphere was also good... don't miss having a peek at the pub downstairs - the only disappointment were the high Menu prices...

The Schoolhouse restaurant is located on a small street right near the main strip in Grand Bend. Immediately, we were greeted with a kind hostess who sat us down in a clean and attractive dining room. Our waitress was attentive throughout our meal, answering questions...and providing suggestions. I had the quiche- sundried tomato, spinach and parmesan, and my husband had the chili. Both tasted amazing and were beautifully presented. I would certainly recommend it, and we will definitely be back!More

A unique place to eat at--a school! but the food was very good and well priced. A small place but very well set up to accommodate customers.

Enjoyed our meal at the restaurant, great service, excellent food and table big enough to sit with ten of us around a table. We reserved our table and it was ready for us. Some nice decor in the restaurant as well.

We stopped in for dinner after seeing a play in a nearby theatre. I would definitely recommend reservations, especially during the busy season and on play days since the restaurant is fairly small and you do not want to be disappointed by not getting a...seat. There are a few parking spots right in front of the restaurant and a few more angled spaces just across the street. We had a lovely table in front of the little bay window in front of the fireplace. The decor is unique and has several framed signs of schoolhouse rules and etiquette for students, teachers and guests as well as some old school decor and vintage furniture. For lunch I had the Chicken Pot Pie with the house salad, which was very filling and delicious. My table mate had the Schoolhouse Pie and enjoyed that as well. For dessert I could not resist trying the scrumptious Butter Tart Sundae which is easily shared since it is so sweet. I found prices at Schoolhouse Restaurant reasonable and the service not too bad - a little slow, but the restaurant was filled to capacity during the dinner hour, including the little patio area out front. I look forward to dining here again.More

First came to the schoolhouse restaurant the year it opened in the summer of 2005, with my wife and baby daughter and have been coming back every summer since! The dinners are very imaginative, well presented and reliable. Nice to know that in the challenging...hospitality business, their are success stories like the schoolhouse restaurant . Keep on doing what you do folks and you will remain our go to place in Grand Bend!More

Thank you Karen for your lovely service. Breakfast was tasty, filling and nicely priced. Readers, do not go to Grand Bend without at least breakfast or brunch at the Schoolhouse. Probably great other dayparts too but I haven’t tried.
