Welcome Back to In My Own Backyard!
This week I just have to share an amazing restaurant that I stumbled across while road tripping along the beautiful shores of Lake Erie (a full itinerary of one of the best roadtrips in Ontario will follow).
We all love finding unique restaurants, with yummy food, and the most incredible views, whether we are travelling abroad, or exploring locally. Well I have found one and if you are ever in the area of Turkey Point, Ontario you just have to go!

Marshview Patio is tucked away within the Long Point UNESCO biosphere reserve located just outside of Turkey Point over-looking Lake Erie and the Turkey Point Marsh. Seating for this restaurant is all outdoors so don’t expect food during acclimate weather. However, on a sunny summer day you will be able to lounge on the patio while gazing at the most incredible view of the largest marsh I have ever seen with one of Ontario’s Great Lakes in the background.
The food served at Marshview Patio is made from fresh ingredients which are locally grown. I wouldn’t expect to return a second time and order the same thing as the menu changes frequently (I sure hope they keep the Farmer’s burger).
When I was at the Marshview Patio, several different types of salads were being offered, as well as burgers, wraps and fish tacos. The portions are HUGE so make sure that you are hungry when you go. The patio is licensed and the day I was there the feature drink of the day was watermelon mojito. It was super hot and the drink was so refreshing and very large.
If you are enjoying the views and aren’t ready to leave after your meal, you might want to visit the beer truck and lounge in the beer gardens for awhile.
Tip: If the Gourmet Farmer’s Burger is on the menu, I HIGHLY recommend it. It is by far the best burger I have ever had. The fries are also right up there at the top as well.
The most amazing thing about this food (other than being so good) is that it is all made from a food truck. Believe me when I tell you that you would never know.
After you finish eating, I am sure that you will need to take a walk on one of the trails … you will be stuffed and will need to walk it off.
I really hope that you get the chance to visit the Marshview Patio. You won’t regret it! BUT, if you want to check out more eateries, wineries or breweries in the area, there are many to explore.
Well that’s another check mark off the list. I’m off to explore more in my own backyard! Until next time ……
Bon Appetite 🙂
