Greeted warmly on entry. They have a good selection of wine by the glass. They served wonderful warm bread & butter. We chose to share a drizzly salad to start was delicious and large portion. We then each chose lake Erie pickerel something hard to get in Toronto. The pickerel was cooked to perfection & was balanced with the sides we both finished it all. We were not sure about dessert but chose lemon meringue car perfect with decaf coffee.

This is my favorite restaurant! Not only do they serve Canadian dishes such as Pickerel, the service is outstanding. My sons ordered fish and it took a while to prepare. They apologized and paid for our first round of drinks, without us complaining. Very well managed!

We enjoyed our food and the service was great. Our only issue was the noise level. I had spoken with our hotel for a recommendation for a quiet restaurant mid-priced. The Grizzly Grill had great decor but it was all hard furniture and flooring and nothing to absorb the sound. One of our friends has hearing issues and he found it had to hear our conversation over the noise of the restaurant.

The Food was amazing!! Sooo good!! and our server was over all okay. My only main complaint is that there was pepper or dirt floating around in my glass and when I asked her to bring me a new glass, she came back with a glass that was dirtier than the glass before with even more black specks floating in the water. I felt like I shouldn’t have to tell her it was dirty again, and felt like she didn’t care about the quality of service she was presenting. Which made me nervous that maybe my plate wasn’t cleaned well, or that I’d find something I shouldn’t in my meal. I was going to order wine, but I didn’t want to order another drink because If both water glasses were dirty. Would a wine a glass be? If I asked for another water would the third glass be dirty and filled with black specks too? I don’t know if maybe the ice bin was contaminated or the water pitcher wasn’t cleaned well. But As a server, attention to detail is so important. Every time I serve my customers I Always make sure to check every glass, every drink and plate before presenting it to a table. And it was sad to see that same care of service not provided.

I am easy going and normally not one to complain but my experience was very disappointing. The service was very poor as the buffet was lacking many items ( lettuce, potatoes, eggs, prime rib, horsraddish, ketchup to list a few) and the wait was long causing food to be cold. There was also a lack of utensils, soup bowls, desert bowls and condiments and again the wait was extremely long. The waiter apologized and offered free drinks (which took about 15 minutes to be served) This was a nice gesture but does not make up for such poor service and while trying to enjoy Mother’s Day. I will never recommend or chose this restaurant again. This was not a nice experience.

Mother’s Day brunch.
They had a buffet brunch. And they kept running out of food. Twice I went up to get different things and they were out. Server was good. Oh and they ran out of clean plates too for a bit. Overall it was ok.

We had brunch on Mother's day. The food was good but we ate from the upper buffet table. fewer choices. plates were dirty. I asked for new ones. They were dirty too so I went down stairs and found the plates were dirty yet again. 4th stack of plates finally was clean. Someone was not doing their job. I've usually been very happy with both the food and the service at "the Grill". This experience tainted what should have been a celebration for Mother's day.

I would not recommend this restaurant for brunches as the food was very mediocre at best. The eggs Benedict was basically a hard boiled egg. The plates and cutlery were mostly dirty and needed to be replaced. Buffet was very limited and not worth the price. The service was good.

The service was good. However when we went to get our food, all the plates were dirty and we had to tell the staff that they needed to get clean plates. The selection was minimal and I did not like the eggs Benedict at all - eggs were over cooked for 2 out of 3 of us. We will not be returning for a brunch in the future.

The only reason for the 4 stars is that it took a long time to get our meal as there was a large party ahead of us. However, the waiter and the manager checked in with us often and provided appetizers to help with our wait.

Atmosphere was great, the old log cabin ambience was excellent!.
Service was very good, our server was very friendly and quick to get our requests filled!
However, my food was, to say the least bland. Nothing to explain. It was not very tasteful, rather on the cool side. My Fiancee had the salmon. She said it was awesome.
I would return, would not get the chicken parm.

Our waiter for the evening was exceptional. He did not rush us as we were still waiting on a couple of gals to join us. He was able to accommodate 3 extra places as more came then was expected. He had great banter with the ladies and was extremely efficient he was a pleasure for sure-well done on finding great staff.
