They had a 4-piece chicken dinner for a special. The cook, by mistake, put on 5 pieces. When the server noticed, she came to the table and TOOK a piece of chicken from my plate.

The food and service is good. This restaurant is accessible by land or water. It is at Bowie #9 off the main body of grand lake St Mary's. The staff treats you like a friend they haven't seen in a while.

Out and about with my mother-in-law, we needed a place for lunch. We stopped at Sunny Side Inn. The staff was warm and welcoming. The food was great. The pork tenderloin sandwich is HUGE! This place is a local gem that deserves your attention. Give them a try.

We ate here on a Saturday night, with another couple. They have been here several times before, it was our first visit. When we walked in, you can smell the deep fried chicken in the air (oh so heavenly, that smell). We sat ourselves as this is a casual dining eatery. Our waitress came to our table immediately. The menu... More

Excellent food at very reasonable prices. Service is excellent and the atmosphere is very nice. This is a clean and warm feeling restaurant. Try their tenderloins...but let me warn you, they are BIG and delicious!

Sunny Side is located on Grand Lake St Marys on SR219. We had heard about it the week before from friends who had just come from there. Saturday, another couple, their daughter and my wife and I decided to try it. The place is located on a channel of the lake and has 4 slips or docking areas for boats.... More

We discovered this restaurant on a motorcycle ride with friends. It was just a local, friendly place...nothing fancy. The staff were very friendly and the food wasn't bad. I wish now that I had tried the fried chicken, as it looked very good and got very good reviews from others. I had the beef taco salad which I probably would... More

We live in the area and eat here fairly regularly. You can depend on the food to be good, the service to be friendly, and the bill to be reasonable. Don't come here expecting a gourmet menu, but we've never had a bad meal here yet! This is one of our favorite lake restaurants.

Nice access from highway and Grand Lake St. Marys. The food is good and the staff is friendly and helpful. My wife and I enjoy the fried chicken and the home make pies.

Like fried chicken? This is the place to go. Not a fancy atmosphere, it's on the lake so it's a place where the boaters can stop off and grab lunch or dinner or drink a beer. More of a restaurant than a bar, and be prepared to wait a bit during the weekends for dinner. Their chicken is great, prices... More
