I don’t exactly know what is going on in Wiarton or Grey Bruce for that matter when to comes to the food business.
The culinary experience in this area is more like a nightmare.
convenience food seems to be the order of the day everyday!
You cannot get breakfast in Wiarton let alone a cup of coffee before 10:00 Am except for Tim’s and maybe the Top Notch. The only thing close to fine dinning is Cobble Beach,
I always thought that the food business was a service industry. Up here service is not in their vocabulary.
You know there is a problem when the waiter/waitress ask if you want the Red or the White Merlot.
Unless the food is grilled or deep-fried they can’t produce a product worth talking about. Let alone eating without a large package of Tums.
I love food. More to the point I love good food. The eating establishments up here consider gourmet to be cheddar cheese with your burger as opposed to processed cheese.
For a while Rocky rRaccoon’s was here and offered some very interesting fare however since they have moved to Owen Sound it has gone down hill.
From deep-fried home fries to deep-fried sausage, bacon, wings and what we have as the idea of good food in this area.
I would think nothing of spending $150 bucks for a great meal in Toronto or London or Kitchener. I would spend it here but there is no where other than Cobble Beach where you have the option of eating something that hasn’t come into contact with a Deep fryer.
Even something as simple as breakfast up here manages to get screwed up. Forget about good service as the wait staff are only interested in getting their tip and you out.
The steaks are frozen and nuked before they cook them, the soups are canned everything is bland beyond belief.
Can anyone recommend a real Dinning Room in the Grey Bruce area???
This is supposed to be a tourist area. I am guessing but maybe they are making too much money so they don’t care and have no pride in their workmanship.
Last holiday weekend on Monday evening, everything was closed except for the Frosty Queen, who’s french fries are frozen just pretend potatoes.
The candy man in Wiarton gets three thumbs up for real coffee and service. Nice friendly guy who really cares about what he does.
I will say that the burgers and fries at Harry’s are worth eating albeit the ambiance leaves something to be desired. The Mar gas station serves a great breakfast and Warren will keep you entertained.
There is some promise insofar as roadhouse food in Shallow Lake .They do a great job but is not anything near Fine Dining.
I think I am going to do a review of Dining in the Warton area once a week and share my experiences with all just for grins.
The dog of the month is where we can send the stupidest politician of the month for dinner as their reward, that is if the place is open for dinner!
