We found this gem and enjoy the unique setting. We have also had our company Christmas party in their private dining room that seats up to 24. The patio is also a great area to have a glass of wine and a great conversation.

In 1947 this beautiful old railway station, built by Hiram Walker, came close to being demolished. It has been lovingly converted to a restaurant and the woodwork is spectacular with food to match. My wife's favourite is the porchetta pie, which is delicious, we often...More

The food at the Mettawas Station is excellent. Service is prompt and the dining experience is exceptional. The architecture and ambience of the dining room make this a go to destination for couples. Reservations are a must as the dining areas are small, but charming.

A group of us(around 10) are planning a bicycle trip to Pelee Island this Wed. and will be returning from the ferry at around 5:30. Would you be able to accommodate us around 6:00ish? Could we eat on the patio? What is the distance between the ferry and your restaurant? At this point I just need the info but am not ready to book yet.
