Thank you so much for this review! You must have visited us last summer :) Bootleggers Cove Pub is currently under renovation. We are very excited to share the upgrades very soon!

Food was classic pub style food. If you’re lucky enough to get patio seating it’s AMAZING!! Beautiful deck out back overlooking little tub harbour. Service was super friendly and it’s a short walk to the lighthouse after dinner.

Absolutely the best ribs we've ever had in a restaurant. The service was so friendly and helpful. We had the key lime cheese cake for dessert - best ever. We're coming back here again!

The food was very much pub grub and was ok. The service was friendly and efficient. The main reason to visit Bootleggers Cove is the late catch and the view, which a beautiful and make the visit worthwhile.

By far, we have found this restaurant to be the best in Tobermory. The service is efficient, the restaurant is clean, and the food is delicious. My husband and I like to sit on the outside patio overlooking the marina.
