The table service was spot on. Food and drinks were served correctly and the table was cleared at the appropriate times during our meal. The food was cooked to perfection and its presentation was very attractive. Three dinners were served; char, scallops and the mixed platter which were all delicious and were good sized portions. Dessert was really good too.... More

This was our first visit to Nathaniels. Food is delicious and beautifully presented. We were there for Savor Owen Sound and had a great three course dinner for a very reasonable price. Staff is very attentive and food served at a relaxing pace. Will go back again. And the desserts are fabulous!

Went for lunch today and had the fresh whitefish. Came with choice of potato and a salad, all for 11.95. Super value. Fish was excellent. Waitress very helpful. Topped off with coffees and coconut cream pie and stawberry rhubarb crumble. Would certainly go again. Right around the corner from the Tom Thomson museum.

For dessert we enjoyed an in house baked coconut cream pie, and it was worth the splurge. Overall, its a nice place, a bit cramped which doesn't allow for too... More

Lovely peaceful restaurant with good healthy choices at a very reasonable choice. Menu hasn't changed much over 15 years but there are some great yummy pleasers. Lots of homemade goodness.

We made reservations (which are recommended) for the two of us for the Christmas season just before the big day. The place was fairly full and busy, which is a good sign. We were seated by the hostess at a lovely intimate table and were well looked after. The wait staff attended promptly and took our drink order and appetizer... More
