Sometimes traffic and a detour is necessary. Fish and chips were amazing. Light and flaky with lots of fish. Mussels were a great addition for a meal for two. Both dishes were hot and perfectly cooked. Service was a little slow. But expected on a...More

Thanks for your email. We do have 2 cab companies in Gravenhurst - either would be great at bringing you into town. I do need to let you know that we don't have the Sea Bass on the menu anymore - sorry!
