Last place for food in Gore Bay since it is end of season. Even though, apparently, our order ticket didn't make it to the kitchen, we enjoyed the food from local farmers although I wouldn't add hot banana peppers to the quesadillas. Not everyone's taste.

Service was friendly.

Thank Mizz-Andry

After a beautiful trip by kayak from Maple Point to Clapperton Island in the North Channel of Lake Huron, we drove to Gore Bay for dinner. Another beautiful setting and the ample decks of the restaurant faced the marina and the setting sun. We thought we were tired of fish, which was why we picked a pizza place, but in the end we shared a pizza and we both had a side of fish, Cajun whitefish for me and lemon dill rainbow trout for B. Everything tasted and looked great. The staff were exceptionally friendly, and the service was attentive but not in-your-face. The perfect end to a great day on beautiful Manitoulin Island.

My wife and I were visiting Manitoulin Island last month and stayed at a B&B in Gore Bay. We wandered down to the bay for a place to eat and made our way to Buoys at the end of the pier. The staff was very friendly and the pizza was truly amazing. Best crust I've ever had. We will definitely be going back next time we're on the island.

Coming back from a boat trip last Saturday and we docked at Gore Bay Marina. Started asking around for a good restaurant. We had 3 kids, so a pizza sounded really good, and we heard about this place called Buoys. It wasn't hard to find because its alongside the marina and Bay. Wow!! great homemade pizza and great fast service...........would recommend to anyone for great food, and they had a great guitarist / singer entertaining out on the deck where we ate.
We will definitely stop back in next year when we go back to beautiful North Channel.
