Great location right on Hwy 6 and the Ferndale road. Good food and super subs. Special ribs are terrific. Stop in on your way south from the ferry. Better than the restaurants in Tobermory.

(Sign says FDI) Delicious food! We had the Reuben and Philly Steak sandwiches and they were both phenomenal! I also picked up some peanut butter monster cookies. They have London ice cream, which is delicious!

Great location and good food to stop and eat or take it on the run. They smoke their own meats too if you like that sort of stuff. I am a fan of the subs and sandwich's. They have ice cream too!

We did not expect much from this very unassuming little place but we were pleasantly surprised. We both had subs and it was the best sub I’ve ever had with plentiful quality ingredients ... tasted more like a sandwich I would make at home. And...we had a great ice cream cone for dessert. Pleasant and helpful people...would recommend your stop by.More

Well worth stopping in the subs are amazing. Never had anything bad here. Good cheery service as well.

Quaint place for submarines with fresh cut deli meat and all the fixings. Homemade and much better than the franchised versions. Also offers their very smoked meat that is smoked on site. Dine in or take out options.

We couldn’t have picked a better place to order sandwiches for our picnic lunch on Flowerpot Island. With fresh ingredients, all the sandwich/sub toppings you could want, and even homemade baked goods for dessert, the Ferndale Drive In had it all. They even have a...wide selection of ice cream flavors. Despite their name, they do offer indoor seating. This would be a great place to bring children to eat.More
