A quaint and unique restaurant and great ambience in the TENT. Food is amazing right from the appetizers to the incredible hands on desserts. Staff are friendly and accommodating. Celebrated a birthday of 10 and they did a marvellous job. Will be back!!!!!!!

Small restaurant on a busy main route in Grand Bend with tacky decor (wood paneling, plastic fireplace). Fantastic service and DELICIOUS food. Best shrimp I’ve ever had. Best bread I’ve ever had. Vegetarian options. Wonderful desserts. Absolutely a must visit while you are in or...near Grand Bend.More

An amazing experience! Food was excellent, ambiance relaxing and service perfect. No complaints what so ever! Able to accommodate an allergy while still offering some choices.

After all these troubled times restaurants and Staff deserved a BREAK. We just had a fabulous meal as always. Grand Bend is sure lucky to have a FINE dining establishment.

Food is always Excellent. As good or better than anything you could get in Downtown Toronto. We have been coming here for years. If you are camping at The Pinery you must go out and have dinner at FINE.

we have frequently dine at this jewel of culinary delights for the past 16 years. Erin and Ben have consistently produced excellence in taste and presentation, a discipline very hard to achieve these days in this industry. Last night after we heard the special being...described " divers scallops", without hesitation we all chose the special, and it was great. Two weeks before was invited to FINE and chose the special again: Rack of lamb again no word can describe how delightful it was. WE are of the opinion this restaurant is remarkable and nothing matches the united talent in the kitchen for hundred of miles around.More

With the excellent COVID protocol and even having masks available at the entrance we saw a "preferred customer" waltz in covering his mouth with his hand and then he proceeded to stop and talk to people, he knew, while having his hand off his mouth....Also a cook came from the Kitchen to talk with a "preferred table" and had no mask on...really. Felt sorry for the staff who do work hard to make sure the COVID protocol is done. Very disappointed. The Bad is watching several, what appeared to be "preferred customers", getting "Rock Star service" would expect the same however apparently not. The Good was our food was excellent and would have had another drink and dessert however put-off with the second class service. Just treat all Customers the same.More

I had the special which was two jumbo shrimp with fried polenta! It was amazing. I asked who thought this dish up and was told Chef Ben did. Well...thank you Ben! This restaurant is a treasure. Thank you for a unforgettable culinary experience!

Life is full on contradictions when ‘fine’ in the food biz means OK or less. Wrong in the case of F.I.N.E … eh, with one the longest and true reputations any where up or down Lake Huron.

Wing Commander attends Duck Days in Lac Brome (Knowlton) Quebec over the last twenty years. The Confit is so-o-o-o F.I.N.E.
