“Worth sailing across the lake...”
Reviewed 25 April 2013

Just mention the "Black Dog" and I start to smile. If you've never been to the pretty village of Bayfield it's worth the visit. The Black Dog makes the visit worth sailing across Lake Huron for! This is just one of those truly unique, hard-to-come-by places you'll always remember. This place has so many great beers on tap along with a wonderful selection of scotch. The menu is un-cluttered and every item on the menu is freshly prepared and delicious. Watch their calendar for upcoming concerts. This is a place you'll want to visit again and again. I wish every small town had a Black Dog!

“A wonderful lunch...”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

This is one of my favourite lunchtime destinations, their chicken club and fries are to die for not to mention their burgers. This a must-do in Bayfield after shopping, strolling along main street. They have a great selection of beer on tap and whiskey from all over the world. If you are in Huron county, this is a must visit.

“Black Beauty”
Reviewed 10 March 2013

It started the moment that we entered the front door. This English Style Bistro is quite remarkable in several ways. What a breathe of fresh air to be greeted by a hostess who really was right on top of things and whisked us away to a street side table for four with a wonderful view of the street. These early spring days are special as we snowbirds welcome the first hint of sunshine and warm weather. My soup special of broccoli and cheese was delicious and was a meal in itself for a price of $5.00. My wife had six bean vegetable tostada which was delightful. Our lunch was supported by an upgrade Chilean chardonnay which was very refreshing. Unfortunately, we did not taste the rare scotch nor the imported draft beers. There is no doubt that these are the drink specialties which we will soon sample. What a wonderful way to start the weekend!
