We’ve always been so happy with over visits to Bishops Landing. It’s our go to place for Fish and Chips in the area. We visited the end of March just before Covid shut down inside dining…we couldn’t of had a better meal. It was perfect...from the food to the service. Since we have visited the patio twice….once a couple weeks ago for fish & chips. It was just ok. The coleslaw tasted like it was just on it’s expired date. I didn’t eat mine. Even though we weren’t as pleased leaving we figure every place deserves an off day. Yesterday we visited for an early lunch and took friends. Again the salad tasted like it was from a “bag”. The fish portions were very generous but very greasy and the fries were good, although not piping hot when we got them. We’ll be back soon, but will order a different favourite. Things just seem different than last summer…and it could be what goods you are able to procure. Servers have always been excellent any time we’ve been to Bishops Landing.More

Time for an overhaul. No vegan options at all. These days it is pretty standard to have several plant based options besides a crammed on beyond burger (not even) or some 22 Buchanan felafel and hummus you can buy at the Metro leaving out the...sauce and bread. Terrible for a 17 entree sized menu. Who needs 9 chicken options?! I mean beyond the vegan thing the menu is stale. I bet you simmered the honey until the thyme turned to steam then collected it and mixed it in aka an infusion. I've run several restaurants all over Canada and it feels 20 plus years ago. I am starving and staying right here with nothing to eat. The place is clean and feels professional enough but...what can I say...you have nothing 4 to 6% of people can eat for dinner. Our national food guide recommends we eat plant based at least more often than not...cmon it has been out for a year or more.More

Enjoyed a nice dinner last night with a group of wonderful friends. Our server, (sorry, forgot her name), was very accommodating and friendly. Our food choices were spot on and soooo tasty!

Absolutely love the renovations in the restaurant, it looks amazing. The Tomato Pesto Flatbread was phenomenal. You seriously cannot beat the view, it is THE best in the city. Jenna and Shaina were extremely friendly and made for an excellent lunch. Excellent as always!

Average hotel restaurant. Prices were good and food was good though. Order the chicken parm. I had some sort of blue mixed drink that was good too.

We decided to drive! Just drive on a Sunday. We ended up in Owen Sound. Found a Best Western. Asked if there was a room and there was. It was time to eat and the hotel has Bishop’s Landing on site. We had no reservations...but stood in line LIKE EVERYONE ELSE!! I’m not sure the male for is for a “Karen” is, but he showed up! Cut in line in front of us and assured his wife/girlfriend that it was ok because he made a reservation. Entitled $&#@! We were seated without with no questions asked and with no reservations. I asked if reservations are preferred and our server said said no. Unless you’d like to sit on the patio. We didn’t care where we sat. I told her our ..hmmmm....? experience...and she understood. With Covid, they’ve seen a lot of changes in humility. She apologized which she didn’t need to do but took care of us as if we were there every week! She was awesome! The food was great and the service, above and beyond! Thank you Jenna and Bishop’s LandingMore

Stopped in for lunch with friends. My husband ordered the fish & chips and I ordered the Chicken Club sandwich with a side salad. The portions are large and the food was fresh. The Chicken club was amazing! Would definitely recommend.
