Looking for a charming little eatery on beautiful Georgian Bay this is the place you must try. Great place for a Breakfast after church on a Sunday or even any other day of the week. Great choices on the menu, reasonable prices, fast friendly service. Very clean inside And a very family atmosphere .

Stopped here for lunch during the labour day long weekend. The area was packed (expected during the long weekend and beautiful weather) and after not being able to find parking we noticed The Surf Restaurant had free parking and spots available so we gave it a shot. Great location with an outdoor patio with great views of the beach. Our... More

The location is great, too bad the service is TERRIBLE and the food is mediocre. I could deal with the mediocre food and stick with the burger and a beer if the server wasn't so unrelentingly crusty. She also seems to hate children, she pretty much ignored my kids the whole time. She took drink orders for the adults at... More

We go here only when we visit family nearby, usually for breakfast. Breakfast is always greasy, coffee cups often dirty. Today, was the first time we did dinner. They have rules. No substitutions. If you don't want a tomato on your burger and it is written on the menu, it will come. If you ask the waiter will remind you... More

This is my second review of The Surf (to see my first one, just click on my nickname -- most of the comments are the same and apply to this visit), and I have visited several times over the years. The only reason I return is because when my best friend comes home from Europe, she likes to visit, more... More

Was visiting from the city with my parents for vacation and thought it would be lovely to have some lunch here, as we used to go here many times when I was a kid. We sat down out on the patio and after almost 10 minutes a waitress slaps down menus and utensils onto the table. Doesn't even set the... More

Just spent 150$ for our family dinner-6 adults, 4 children. The food was OK, but there were swarms of wasps, so we did not enjoy the food! There should be a solution to the pests! I will not be returning!

This place is a joke. We have a cottage local and only go due to its location. Sad deal is; if they would smile at you when u came in to eat here, if they maybe came to your table more than to just take orders and drop off food and throw u a bill, and maybe bumped up the... More
