We rented a cottage in Lions Head and I was told by the owner of the cottage that FDI was a great place for Subs. Then I took a look on TripAdvisor and say the rave reviews so we decided to give it a try. The restaurant is an unassuming little place, nothing fancy at all. We were greeted warmly... More

Pretty classic small town utility restaurant, with a unique atmosphere and delicious food. It's too bad it's so easy to miss for people heading straight through Ferndale

Conveniently located at the corner of Bruce Rd 9 and Highway 6 in Ferndale north of Wiarton, this is a great place to drop in for a sub. Made to order and inexpensive, very tasty!

Their subs with homemade buns and smoked meat is to die for! I dread when they close for the winter. I wish I lived close enough to eat lunch there everyday! A definite must try.
