Restaurant Recommendations
Here is a list of sit down type restaurants that I would recommend.
I work here so obviously I'm going to recommend it 😬. In all seriousness, Jabberwocky is a cocktail bar with a emphasis on gin. The food is all vegan too! Every Wednesday-Friday, from 5-7, they do a Happy Hour where they offer select beers for $6 and select cocktails for $8. Food is very reasonably priced too with nothing really over $15

If you want seafood, go here. It can be on the pricier side but it's a nice little treat yourself while on vacation! It's small and loaded with character. They do have a sister restaurant on Elgin which is much larger and has a patio in the back. The menu is a bit different at this location but still just as tasty.

Great selection of wine and beer. Food is great as well and offers some vegan options. Every Monday, they do an all veg/vegan menu. The menu is small but the value is great for what you get and it changes every week.

One of my fav restaurants in the city. A bit pricey, but service and food are on point. On Sunday's they do "buck a shuck" oysters (the price has gone up to $1.50 now but "buck a shuck" has a nicer ring than "buck fifty a shuck")

If you have a car and are willing to drive out 35 minutes, go to Carp farmers market and check out Ten of Cups Pizza. They are at the market every Saturday and make some of finest wheels in town. Go early because they sell out quickly!! You can also grab a wide variety of local fruits and vegetables to make dinner if you're so inclined.

Probably the best beer selection in the city and frequently changing. Best part is they do flights (think they are 4oz pours) allowing you to try different beers without commiting to a full pint!

This area is lovely for a nice stroll or bike ride along the water. You can rent a pedal boat and enjoy a short ride around the man made lake too! Also has an arboretum area. Great area for a little picnic. Find a shaded area under a tree or spread your blanket out and enjoy the sun!
