Saturday night a bunch of us ordered the poutine for take out. At no point did the staff tell us they were out of curds. We were given poutine with cheddar!! Terrible poutine. I was also overcharged for a drink I didnt order. Check your bills before paying!!!

Staff is courteous and caring. Ambiance and decor is great let alone the food is absolutely delicious. Comfortable and friendly atmosphere . Everything is fresh and delivered to the table in a reasonable time as well. Great place for family dinner or just a coffee and a chat.

Terrible Experiance

My experiance at the surf was the worst experiance I have ever had. My french onion soup had a skim of cheese on the top, my friends steak was well-done when she asked for medium rare. The waitress smelt like cigarrets and was extremely rude. My overall expierance at TheSurf was a disapointment, and I will never go back again.

Charming and Yummy

We have been to the Surf many times and never been disappointed. The service is fast and friendly. The view delightful - Balm Beach is on a gorgeous sandy bay. The summer patio is like the deck of a ship. A romantic spot to dine and watch the glorious sunsets on Georgian Bay. The great food is the topper of the experience. I particularly am fond of their shrimp and salad at lunch and their dinner schnitzel. Most often we go for breakfast, for it is the best in the region. We also enjoy the drive to get to the Surf, so we can anticipate the meal and arrive relaxed and ready to have a great time.

Fantastic NewYears Eve Dinner !!!

Super High-End value,taste,and atmosphere in a small town with extremely reasonable prices !! The set menu had excellent choices. My T-bone steak was superb,my wife's chicken was to die for. The decadent warm apple,etc desert was unbelievably tasty ! It was really nice that the owners...Joey and Judy, as well as the professional chef Bill greeted us and chatted for awhile. The service was superb ! They even gifted us with a bottle of wine with their private label. The Surf is a real gem of a restaurant situated on the shore of Georgian Bay at Balm Beach. We're really looking forward to celebrating Valentines Day there as they will have a special weekend with available surf/turf on the menu . If you've never been there, then you must experience the value,taste,quality of their menu items. The Surf Restaurant....the very best in all of Tiny Township !...Guaranteed !

Great Sunday Dinner !

Once again the Surf proves the place to enjoy dinner in Tiny Township. My prime rib was just so succulent, and the roast potatoes and mixed veggies...mmmmm..good! The cheeseburger/fries combo was to die for. Once again, a great visit and a fantastic meal at a very reasonable cost at The Surf in Balm Beach !

Tasty Breakfast !-Great Value !!

The Surf is definitely the place to have a scrumptious and fantastic-priced breakfast in Tiny Township. Our entire meal with tip came in at $25.00. The service was very quick,as that's expected in the morning. The portions were quite large and all was adorned with skewers of fresh cut fruits. We absolutely loved our breakfasts, and the bottomless coffee was consistently served up hot. The view of Balm Beach is a very pleasant site during the meal, as well. I highly recommend The Surf for breakfast. Check their hours, as they are not open every morning in the winter months.

Excellent BBQ Ribs To Die For !!

The service was absolutely super-fast and attentive, and the food flavour and temperature was absolutely the best !! The chef Bill, and the owner/waitress Judy make and serve the very best family restaurant meals in Huronia !! My fullrack of BBQ ribs were fall off the bone, succulent, and by far the BEST that I've ever eaten in any restaurant in Canada ! ...and I do travel a fair bit. Our entire meals were fantastic and superb value for the price. If you have reason to go to Balm Beach, make sure you go to The Surf; if you don't have a reason to,...... go anyways.....the best family restaurant by far, in the entire area. Breakfasts there are also excellent, in terms of taste, speedy service and fantastic value for the price....this gem of a restaurant is not to be overlooked !!
