I had the best hamburger I’ve ever had. Food was fast and hot. A little mix up on my side but it was rectified immediately.

Fries taste like cardboard. Food was hot, fish wasn’t bad. We had the haddock. Average price I think. Was a bit nervous of the view from the picnic tables

I don’t like leaving bad reviews, but this place is TERRIBLE! To add insult to injury it is also very expensive. We paid $60 for horrible food and didn’t even eat it. We ordered whitefish and shrimp with rice. Disgusting. The fish was cooked in...the same oil as chicken and tasted weird. The four small shrimp were dry. The rice was pathetic…just white rice with soya sauce on it. Avoid this place!! We left our full plates and went to eat elsewhere. This was the worst meal I’ve had in years. I hate to leave this review, but seriously, this establishment needs to do better.More

Food and service was great. I went solo, but this restaurant is a great spot for families with younger kids— there is some cool decor and fun games for kids to play so they won’t be bored! The staff are happy engage pirate mode when...interacting with kids too!More

We have become very disappointed by food quality at Tobermory Brewing Company and Crowsnest in 2023 (both restaurants lost their cooks), so we ventured out to Castaways to try Shipwreck’s newest restaurant. We were delighted by the food and atmosphere there! The butter chicken rice...bowls, chicken shawarma poutine, Nashville hot chicken sandwich are super good!! Castaways and Ferry Dock Shipwrecks are our favourite restaurants by far in Tobermory right now. Both have a different menu. We go to Ferry Dock when we are in the mood for fish and chips and Castaways when in the mood for anything else.More

Very light and fluffy fish. My husband and I ordered the all you can eat and we both enjoyed it very much! We paired it with their in house brews and the server we had was so kind and on top of bringing out extra...fish before we even ask! Very lovely experience and a great environmentMore

I was visiting the Gorge with my sister and then headed to Tobermory for fish and chips. We decided to go to Shipreck Lee,s at the Marina. We sat under the patio and had a wonderful meal. Lightly battered White fish and chips (no coleslaw)...I was happy to see there was more fish than batter. Service was excellent, all employees appeared to be friendly and courtesy. Luch was delivered promptly. I have no complaints and we both agreed it was the fish was excellent and would go back. We ate at the location at the marina. Next time I would try their other location near the chi-cheemaun ferry. The patio on the hill looked very inviting.More

We had bypassed the bistro as that was packed but the main restaurant overlooking the ferry terminal was almost empty. The restaurant seems to be best known for its all you can eat options but we didn’t partake of this option today! The staff were...friendly, the location perfect and food/drink was enjoyable, although maybe a little overpriced but that tends to be the case with touristy locations so wasn’t entirely unexpected.More

We came here as part of bus tour group. Our organizers had asked us to choose between the Fish or Chicken with Fries options for our lunch (along with a pop). Both my wife and I opted for the Fish. Our whole party was seated...on the patio which had a pleasant ambience with a nice view of the lake. The service was fast and most of the servers were pleasant enough. There were two servers dressed like pirates who were particularly nice and friendly. Our meals came with little packages of Tarter Sauce and Rancher's Choice Vinaigrette. Although there is salt, pepper, vinegar, and ketchup if you need them, I wish they also had lemon to go with the fried fish. I found the single portions of Fried Fish pretty decent sized and filling. The fish was fried to perfection and the insides were light, flakey, and moist. The fries were pretty good too. If there is one thing that this place needs to improve on, it is the state of their washrooms. There aren't enough toilet stalls and the few they have are poorly maintained.More

After an enjoyable tour to Flower Pot Island we had a very relaxing meal at Shipwreck Lee's of Tobermory. We had our cousins from the French Polynesia Islands with us who speak French. The waiter was very patient and accommodating in helping them select their...meals and drinks. We selected their white fish and chips along with a cold beer. For the reasonable cost it was very good, I would definitely eat there again.More
