We love the Grill! First because Ellie and Shawn (friendly, caring, personal attention owners, cooks and servers!) and Mary Lou (exceptional service and personal attention) and because as a Vegan, I know I can get a fantastic meal and my husband will be happy with his non-vegan meal - every visit. For example, this past weekend, Shawn prepared a gluten... More

We did our yearly motorcycle ride through Minden and did our usual stop at the Grill on the Gull . The place has a perfect patio with a breathtaking views and provides a cool summer breeze. The server was actually the owner and as usual she was friendly and oddly she remembered us from last year. The meal was excellent... More

The waitress recommended it and she was spot on. Too bad my husband forgot the take out container on the table when he walked out tonight :(

Had the squash pasta with rose sauce. Sauce seemed like it came out of a jar. Pasta was well cooked but very bland with no real seasoning. Had a great opportunity to add flavour with roasted vegetables maybe but the choice was to slice up a few cherry tomatoes and put them on top. Added nothing to the dish. Do... More

Location adjacent to the Gull River, two small patios with one table each have been constructed out over the river. Baby spinach salad with crisp apple, orange, raspberry, almond, blue cheese, mandarin orange/kiwi vinaigrette dressing. El Ninno burger with guacamole, spicy jalapeno javarti cheese, tomato, onion, lettice. Good choices.

We have had a family cottage in the Minden area for almost 20 years and have eaten in many of the local restaurants. On our 20th anniversary we decided to go into town for lunch. We have always wanted to try Grill on the Gull and finally we had the opportunity. When we walked inside, the atmosphere was immediately welcoming... More

Driving a new (to us) route from Hwy 60 down to the 401, we stopped for a much needed break in the small riverside town of Minden. The Grill on the Gull had what we thought was the best location and the breezy porch with a view of the river was perfect on a sunny summer's day. Salad and burger... More

Dinner on balcony over the Gull River. Had pasta dish, key lime pie, craft beer, all excellent and served well. Found a bit pricey, but it was overall a successful dining experience. Will return soon.

My husband and I consider this the 'go to' place for intimate celebrations of any kind when we're at our country home. Food is well-presented and tasty, menu changes with the season and availability of fresh options, and the staff are awesome. Friendly owner Sean often regales with his music, and our favourite waitress Mary-Lou is a highlight! For a... More
