The Boathouse Eatery is located at the town Docks overlooking beautiful Georgian Bay.

Our upstairs dining room is great for private bookings of parties of up to 45 people. Open for lunch and dinner seven days a week and live entertainment every Friday & Saturday night. One of Georgian Bay's best waterfront restaurants.
