Steak
It all started in the late 1800’s.. a young Gustav Johann Garbe got on a boat from Bremen, Germany to New York, destined for the North West Territories of Canada. Gustav stood up and stood out, always with family, friends and community at the forefront of his mind. His drive, passion and core values have directed four generations of self made entrepreneurs to where we find ourselves today. John Garbe, in the name of his great grandfather, has assembled a team of exceptional professionals. The culinary artists, led by Chef Jeff Anderson, have over a century of combined experience. The menu has been carefully developed, relying on local farmers and community for unsurpassed cuisine. The service experience is firmly rooted in family and friends. This is Gustav

Due to the pandemic- the ambiance is definitely more sparse feeling than usual. We are used to the cozy feeling in the restaurant, however understand why things have to be this way to keep everyone safe.

Overall, the experience was less than we expected. We came in for brunch. The food wasn’t that great and the service was not attentive to our table. Definitely, missed the mark that day.

Not worth the value. Go ANYWHERE else in blue mountain for steak and spend a lot less

Not worth the price... Great atmosphere and friendly staff, but the food is absolutely not worth it. Go somewhere in the village of downtown instead for half the price and twice the quality

The food and service was outstanding. Marlene is a wonderful server and just so lovely. The appetizer of the house made spring rolls...yummy! And the beef tenderloin was simply amazing and prepared exactly how we like it. Thanks for a great dining experience and we really appreciate how spacious the dining room is. Made us feel safe and comfortable.

A little pricey for a steak dinner. WE had to ask our waiter to dim the lights multiple times as they were so bright.

As always, never disappointed here. Consistently delicious, good quality, and interesting choices (must have the dim sum). Awesome flatbread. We always end up ordering 4 or 5 things and sharing. Can't have just one!

It was my friend’s birthday and we came to celebrate. We both had a 6oz fillet with baked potato and veggies 😊 Glad we didn’t have an appetizer as we we well satisfied and it just would have been too much😎 we had a lovely bottle of Pinot Grigio to go with it. Service was great, meal was great and we enjoyed our evening. I don’t go out that often but when I want something special I always think of Gustav’s, never disappointed 😎
Bonus, almost next door to where I live❤️

Our steaks were a little undercooked and very tough! We have had steaks there many of times but would have to say this experience wasn’t the greatest. Service was great as always

We love this restaurant and the food is amazing as well as service very friendly and polite. We wish it would be a little slower paced which we should have managed. We were in and out in less than an hour. Pandemic may be affecting getting people in and out faster allowing more people to dine. Overall it was great.

We go to Gustav's fairly often. If for some reason anything is wrong they work very hard to fix it. You always feel like a special guest. Chef is outstanding and the service couldn't be better.

Food and service was excellent although I didn’t like being told to keep my mask on until we got a beverage. What’s up with that. Value was good although I though the wine was very expensive.

Five girlfriends sharing a night out and we came away completely satisfied. The food was delicious, service superb and the ambiance was relaxing. The pasta dish they have on their menu is to die for. We can't wait to come back. 10++

My friend and i came to The Georgian Bay Hotel for a three day getaway. We thought we would eat in Gustav’s night one....and somewhere else nite two..as there is so much variety in the area....we decided to reserve again for the second night... For three reasons....the food was amazing....the wine as well ..which was their in house Sauvignon Blanc....and we were lucky enough to sit ..both nights in the area where Pascal was serving...he was very special..he even remembered our wine choices... Very relaxing..and cozy and the meal was superb!

Our table was ready when we got there. COVID precautions were observed. Our server was attentive, but unobtrusive. He was friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. The food was prompt, hot and delicious. The bill was surprisingly reasonable. We also had breakfast the next morning, which was just as enjoyable.

Gustav's is a cut above the type of restaurant that tends to be attached to a hotel. The staff are genuinely interested in your having a satisfying meal. The atmosphere was quiet but it was during the Covid crisis so not all possible seating was available. Definitely worth the effort.

Overall a very nice place for a special dinner or a simple, but good, breakfast. They have gluten free options, you just need to ask and they will accommodate when possible :)
