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 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.

    Nice restaurant in town..it was recommended by our friends to try as we were staying in blue mountain and wanted a good restaurant close by to try! Food was tasty, portions were good and filled us up. The bartender was really nice and engaging as she made my kids fun virgin drinks that they loved. Service was quick and Friendly as well as the manager was attentive to us as well.

    The food was very good we enjoyed the shrimp cocktail to start, 2 steak dinners and a bottle of red wine. Unfortunately the server was not good at all. He seemed to not be interested in his work and did the bare minimum. Considering the price point of this restaurant, you would think the servers would have a better manner.

    I was dissapointed that the weather prevented my getting together with some friends to celebrate my birthday. Nevertheless I decided to treat myself to a roast beef dinner (a Sunday family favourite) at Gustav Chophouse. I was not disappointed ! It was cooked the way I like it (rare-medium) and accompanied by roast veggies, Yorkshire pudding, mashed potatoes etc. - a delicious meal! My waiter was friendly and attentive. I received a delicious birthday treat after my meal and truly felt special. I will definitely go back and don't hesitate to give my experience 5 stars!

    I was reluctant to write a review as I don't see myself as a complainer;- however you want feedback so here I go. The dinner was OK ;- however the veggies (same as we have been served the last few times there) were way over-roasted;- hard and cooked (burned) way beyond being recognized as "veggies". all removed with our finished plates still having the "veggies" on them;-. .My son and I had prime rib it was O.K. ;- a bit tough but O.K. Gustav's has been my go-to place as it's close and has easy access to a washroom (a big factor for a person with mobility issues) . I don't expect a credit voucher or anything like that;- but I will tell you that I expect we will choose somewhere else to go out for dinner;- A patron should feel, when you leave a restaurant that we got value for our money. I didn't feel that way. It was my son's birthday and he remarked on the way home that he would have graded his dinner a mediocre....I would have to agree.. I spoke to another son this morning and he asked about our dinner our with his brother;- he said that he and his family have the same feeling of Gustav's;- used to be our first choice;- not now.. You asked for my opinion;- wouldn't help you if I didn't tell the truth.. Muriel Wilde murwilde@sympatico.ca 705 446 7014

    There are a number of wonderful dining establishments in the Collingwood/Blue Mountain area. Gustav's consistently ranks within the top 2 or 3 in our opinion: quality food, nice atmosphere, attentive and professional service.

    special valentine's day menu was well chosen. ( although we didn't partake) The fact that we could order from the full menu on a "special night", which is usually not the case, sold it for us. It takes great teamwork and organization to pull off two menus...well done! Don't change a thing... Many thanks... Pat.

    Had a nice date night dinner with beer/martini to drink. We got the scallops and the table fire Cesar salad to start-both were delish! The fillet tasted great but the temperature was a little in the low side, chicken and mushroom pasta was also great!

    Prayers were fresh and delicious. Our server, Rachel, was awesome. Super friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Wine was great. Caesars were great. Had fillet mignons- pretty sure they were not fresh and had been frozen. King crab as a side was certainly frozen. For that kind of money, fresh is the only way to go. Roast potatoes were also most certainly reheated and not made fresh. Again, for paying over 500 dollars, I'd expect fresh items.

    Family dinner at Blue Mountain for the second year in a row, this time with friends we brought along. Such a hidden gem of a place. Staff is friendly and professional and the food is delicious and worth taking the quick trip away from the Blue Mountain Village.

    It was our first time dining at Gustav and over all it was pleasant. The food portions we found to be generous and prepared to our liking. We did find the lighting a little dark and we found we had to strain our eyes to read the menu. Our server was wonderful she was so helpful and put in a lot of effort that made the dining experience here delightful.

    Usually when you go to a restaurant with a family of 10 which includes 4 children most places will not pay much attention or even worse, you will get ignored. Our server Suzanne was exceptional! She had knowledge of every single thing on the menu. She made excellent suggestions and had the utmost patience with all us adults and even the children. One of the best dining out experiences we’ve had in a while. Thank you!

    It's a hotel restaurant inside the Georgian Bay Hotel. The place, including the hotel overall, was a bit dull with old-fashioned decor and gloomy lighting but was well-maintained. Seared Scallops: The scallops could melt in my mouth and weren't chewy at all. Combined with the creamy sunchoke puree and crispy potato shreds, it was tasty. Top Sirloin: I had a 6oz medium-rare with sautéed mushrooms and roasted cauliflower. The beef was a bit dry and chewy because of a thick cut, but the meat quality was good. The mushrooms and cauliflower tasted good. House Cut New York Striploin: 8oz medium. The beef was way more tender and juicier than mine. Chocolate Mousse Cake was up to par. The wines were okay too. If you stay around Collingwood, this place would be a decent choice for a classic lunch/dinner. Food (quality, creativity, consistency) - 3.5/5 Drinks (quality, variety) - 3/5 Ambience (interior design, cleanliness) - 3/5 Service (courtesy, knowledge, timeliness) - 3.5/5 Value (quality vs. price) - 3.5/5 OVERALL - 3.3

She was losing her voice, but did the best she could and made it fun. Great server always followed up with us at the right times we were never without. We will definitely be back.

    Gustov’s was perfect for an early Christmas dinner with my elderly parents . It wasn’t too busy at3:45pm so noise was minimal. You have to try the Tomahawk steak. It was cooked to perfection, and there was plenty for four people. We ordered an additional two sides with our meal. There was plenty of food for four people. It was by far the tastiest steak. My husband and I have ever had. The staff were very patient and very welcoming. The menu was explained in detail, which made a selection so much easier. A big thank you to Shirley our server.
