We were on the island for a week and decided on The Schoolhouse restaurant as our farewell to the island meal. We were not disappointed. Great food! Great service! Our only complaint was that the food came too quickly...no time between appetizer and entrée. I...was told it was because they had a big group coming in. All in all, a great experience!More

We were welcomed with two busy boys and treated to a wonderful experience and meal. It's not a quick stop on a budget, but well worth the money you spend.

Well worth the 40 min drive from South Baymouth. The menu offers several appetizers, salads, and main dishes (as well as desserts. It doesn’t overwhelm, but instead offers a half-dozen or so options to accommodate most. I had the lamb, which was wonderful, and my...wife was very pleased with a chicken breast stuffed with spinach and a cheese blend. The wine offerings were great too, also not a huge list but a good variety of nice wines. Our visit found fresh island grown strawberries with shortcake as a dessert option...yum! It’s a favorite place for us to venture as a family, and the meals have always been memorable! Give it a try...delicious!More

I had read some amazing reviews, and I wasn't disappointed. They were able to squeeze us in and the waitress was wonderful and funny and she even took our photo. The food was out of this world. Highly recommend it.

The School House is beautiful inside with old antique furniture and decorations. The service is very friendly and personal. We had rack of Lamb which was done to perfection. The bread pudding for desert was fabulous with a touch of Bourbon. You won't be disappointed,...highly recommended. Make a reservation so you won't be disappointed.More

It has often been hard to get a good meal on Manitoulin, but not at the School House. The menu is excellent, with lots of local options. They always have fish, meat, poultry and a vegetarian option. The meals are well cooked and well presented....One of the things that often happens in smaller places is that the chef tries to be too clever and overdo things. This doesn't happen here. The service is friendly and efficient and the place itself is charming with lots of interesting local antiques. Highly recommended.More

We loved the atmosphere, service and the food. The building and decor are very unique. The service was excellent and our server even went out of her way to accommodate one of our drink requests. Highly recommend a visit.
