We arrived by boat, last stop before leaving North Channel and returning to the U.S. To spend our remaining Canadian money, a dinner was planned at the Meldrum Bay Inn. A wise investment. The fish was fresh, interesting prepared, and served by welcoming and attentive staff. We dined on the porch and were entertained by humming birds feasting on the... More

We had a delicious dinner here with family in July. One can dine al fresco on the wrap around porch with a beautiful view of the North Channel and watch the hummingbirds and their acrobatics or dine inside in the cosy dining room. We dined inside due to inclement weather. Local fresh fish is a speciality. I had the trout... More

Good selection of fresh food. Whitefish is caught right from the bay and always fresh! Great views from the dinning room, which is small and quaint. Nice porch and garden area where you can enjoy your drinks from the adorable bar inside.

From the friendly welcome when you first arrive to the hugs when you leave, it feels like home to eat at the Inn. The portions are very generous and delicious. The fish was very fresh and cooked to perfection. The salads were so crunchy and delicious. Dessert was a feast of its own!! I highly recommend this restaurant if ever... More

Good food and good service by nice people. Shared the summer salad and smoked fish as starters, and had a good trout main course. I had no room for desert, but they looked good and generous.

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Meldrum Bay Restaurant. We loved everything about it! Sitting on the porch overlooking the bay set the stage for a beautiful experience. My husband had the ribs and I had the whitefish. Both were excellent! The key lime pie was to die for. The service was exceptional. I've never seen so... More

We stayed here one night and dined in the restaurant. This is a one of a kind inn and restaurant. An eclectic mix of arts and crafts, modern and Victorian style furniture and decor complete with open verandas and ceiling fans. The owner is lovely and treats guests almost as family. Located at the far side of the island it... More
