Food was just OK, nothing to write home about. I ordered a burger but it came out as a chicken sandwich which I sent back. My burger arrived about 20 minutes after everyone else had finished eating. When I questioned the server if they were...going to charge me full price, she said yes, as soon as it come out of the kitchen it's charged. Bad customer service and we definitely won't be back.More

Great waitress service but slow on service from the kitchen. 2 of the steak sandwiches were wrong and took forever to come back out. Didn’t get to eat with the rest of our party. Kitchen staff was rude when one of our party members went...to ask what the hold up was, saying do you have a problem with me. The problem was the steaks were cooked improper and it was taking to long . Find this unacceptable when we are paying for an expensive night out plus it was not very busy 09/05/2023More

Amazing food, atmosphere, drinks.The Goddess Salad, and Bruchetta was beyond words flavorful and had an amazing taste. Calamari was so tender. Would highly recommend all three dishes and to top off the night please have a slice of their chocolate fudge bar made in house.The...waitress Makenzie L. was very pleasant and came to our table several times to ask how things were. She was a delightful friendly waitress. Will definitely go back again. Thank you for making our 26 year anniversary a night to remember.More

It was actually pretty nice. I had a margarita pizza with no basil and liked it a lot. Often when I get pizzas they come and they havent been cut well. This time it just split, so easy. I loved my meal and everyone else...did. Next door is Big Moos which is a great place for icecream and candy. I recomend this place for dinner. A solid four stars by Ellie Reviews!More

The Restaurant has a view which was not opened so we ate on the main level . We were 5 people and two of them shared wings and a poutine . I got the fish tacos. They swipe this orange stuff on almost 1/4 of...the plate which made the tacos very soggy . Had to eat with a fork . My husband got the fish and chips there was little fries and the fish being a big piece was sitting on top of this green stuff they swipe on 1/4 of the plate . I think it might of been guacamole witch does not go well with fish . So the fish on the green stuff was soggy . My nephew had the black bun burger which was hard for him to eat . Kept falling apart . 3 cokes i had water my husband had 1 drink . Bill came to $160.00 . Way to much for what we got . Would expect better food quality for that price . Definitely disappointed and wont go back . Save your money 🤮More

This restaurant is breathtaking. We found it on Instagram so we had to plan a visit. We ended up coming in a few times during our weekend getaway. We sat on a different floor each time. Our favorite experience was the very top patio. We...were greeted by friendly hostesses that got us a table right away in the open rooftop "Oasis" (so prestige!). The menus were so aesthetically pleasing, and matched the restaurant vibe. Our server was attentive and helped us pick out our food and drink. All of our food was fresh and looked too beautiful to eat when it came to the table. Drinks were fun and delicious. The view from the 3rd floor is of the entire lake, so make sure you get a table at sunset hour, it is most surreal. We fell in love with the atmosphere and gorgeous décor. All the string lights, foliage and colorful flowers really made it feel like we were half way around the world, under the stars with friends. Oh, and be sure to check out the restrooms ;)! Such a wonderful experience here down to every detail. We cannot wait to come back to try it out again.More

Ordered two burgers and drinks, no appetizers. Stopped in for food on way back home from our girl's vacation. Not particularly welcoming as staff were not present at either entrances, had to wait for someone to seat us. Slow service overall, had to flag down...staff for 90% of time when delivery took longer than expected or if condiments needed etc. Lovely view of beach front and traffic. Had staff come over with food we didn't order after our burgers arrived, they were confused but couldn't figure out where to go even though there were not a lot of patrons. Told them to try the table next to us and surprise it was their order! Flagged down server to get bill then had to return after reviewing bill which I should have done there so hard lesson to learn. Then had to wait for our server to be flagged from kitchen by bartender to help us. She had put the other diner's meals on our tab!! No apologies or remorse. She had to flag manager and again no apologies or remorse. Gave me cash rather than debit less tip and expected me to pay debit again but gave her the cash. Didn't want to refund and cancel the incorrect billing. Not impressed with their poor attitude, customer service and management especially when it was not busy and it was overstaffed. The ice cream parlour next door was better service. STRONGLY DUE NOT RECOMMEND.More

Wonderful, beachy vibe, fabulous food, cocktails and service! Absolutely love their pizza! The crust is perfectly thin, and choice of toppings wonderful. And we know pizza, we’re Italian! Lol. Also fantastic steak sandwich with not too much bread, and fish tacos are beautiful to look...at and very good! Go later for dinner, sit in upper outdoor patio, and watch sunset over the lake as you relax.More

In the past month I have gone to Sun of a Beach multiple times and almost every time I have had the worst service. Its not because our servers are horrible its because they are so incredibly understaffed its insane. (or that's what it looks...like). The restaurant itself is great, the servers are wonderful people and the food is amazing. I genuinely just feel like the service would be better if the management didn't overwhelm the servers or if the servers helped each other out.. When we arrived the hostest said the patio was full, but we looked before coming in and only saw 2 people sitting at the bar wood on the patio. I asked her nicely if she could check to see if the patio was busy or if there were any tables were open, another server came to check and help us out. When we sat down the server was prompt and greeted us right away. Our server was running the tables on the patio and the downstairs. There were dirty tables around us the whole time we were enjoying out meals (and when we left the same dirty tables where still there). It honestly seemed liked she was the only one doing her job. From the amount of staff on no one was helping her!!! No hosts, no other servers, no bartenders, and no manager came to help clean. I don't know if Sun of a Beach has rules "if its your table clean it" but come on... you want a good turnover but you cant even help the servers clean a table that's been done for 45 minutes.. You're losing profit and turning away tables all because you can't help buss a table. Honestly my server was such a great person and I genuinely feel bad that she had zero help.. when we left there were only 4 tables down stairs and people waiting to be sat and maybe only 4 tables upstairs. It's sad to see that team work was non existent, especially when other servers where just rolling cutlery and chatting amongst themselves. The last time we came we waited 15 minutes for our drinks that were sitting at the bar, while we watched the server talk to couples at the bar. When our appy came out we had zero cutlery, and had to ask the food runner for cutlery. Then when our meals came out, our servers still had not quality checked out appetizer, we were almost done our main before she even came by to see if we needed anything. I feel bad for the girl working her butt off tonight, while everyone else stood around. Its hard to support a place that doesn't care about the quality of service or helping their employees out as a team.More

A great stop for lunch. Great food and drink menu with lots of choice. Sat overlooking the lake and got a great view of the parade that was happening on that afternoon. Service was great and washrooms were super clean.
