Where to Eat in Collingwood: The Best Restaurants and Bars

July 22, 2017 Jana Sager

Collingwood is more than just a neighbor of Blue Mountain Ski resort. This town on Nottawasaga Bay has its own delights to discover, from historic homes to parks and trails, a marine heritage museum, and its own annual Elvis Festival.

Brunello at 27 on Fourth

Reviewed By Heather H - Toronto, Canada

Wow! We had a fabulous dinner last night celebrating our anniversary and my husband’s birthday. Our server, Angel, expertly guided us through the menu pointing out the best dishes. I’m sure everything is amazing here, but we had/shared the Caprese Salad, Mushroom Ravioli and Rack of Lamb. The portions are generous, so sharing was perfect to sample a few items without being stuffed. The ravioli and lamb are definitely “last supper” worthy, melt in your mouth, perfectly cooked and seasoned. When we visit Collingwood again, we will be back!

Reviewed By DavePenney - Toronto, Canada

I didn't mention diner because i have not tried them for diner. Their breakfast menu is varied and portions are good and tasty. I usually go their for lunch. The Thai Pork Rolls are excellent. The Mulligatawny soup is the best I have ever had. I usually order this soup, my wife orders the Chicken Club Caesar salad and we share. A great combo. When I go with my friend from the states he enjoys the Quesadilla.

Trattoria Azzurra

Eatery serving refined Italian cuisine with a focus on local ingredients & fine wines in a homey, elegant atmosphere.

Reviewed By Livingbarefoot - London ON

We had a great dinner at Azzurra, the waitress was very nice, smiling all the time. Wine was half priced (Sunday)! I had the trout and it was just delicious, my husband had the sweet potato gnocchi and found the meal good but too sweet. They could have done less with the maple syrup!
I choose an appetizer with roasted mushrooms that was to die for! Great place to visit!

Beaver and Bulldog Sports Pub and Wingery

Reviewed By Bob d - Collingwood, Canada

The family went to the Beaver and Bulldog on Feb 2 and had the Whiskeylicious wings. Although we had a 10 minute wait (that means it has to be good, right), it was worth it. We were served promptly, got our drinks quickly and the food did not take long to arrive. The food was really tasty and well prepared. We will definitely be back for more.

The Huron Club

The Huron Club embodies what Collingwood is all about. It's a family business that has that family touch. Every diner's experience is personal. The staff are engaging and friendly, the food is fabulous, and the prices are superb for what you get. Not to mention the local live music (available 4 days a week, Thu-Saturday nights, as well as over Sunday brunch), creating that comfy-cool atmosphere. It's casual, but yet, you'd be right at home for a special occasion like a birthday dinner or anniversary, and definitely suitable for a business lunch or dinner. They also have a beautiful events gallery upstairs for functions of any kind (complete with multimedia equipment for presentations). Their patio is a summer highlight and the building itself has such an interesting history and feel to it (as one of Collingwood's beautiful heritage buildings). Overall, a wonderful place to go for any occasion, big or small.

Popped in for drinks and snack with friends. The staff and (owners) made it all work as our group grew in size even though the restaurant was really busy (with great live music.)
Food was great and the menu of drinks was broad.
A great business that you just can't help but want to support.

The Tremont Cafe

A place where people who share a love of authentic food, complex coffee, and a proper drink will feel appreciated and comfortable - where guests are greeted with open arms and treated like family. The Tremont Cafe is defined by its inspired hospitality and craftsmanship.

Reviewed By Al K - Elmvale

We are impressed by the ambiance,hospitality,and the amazing food at the Tremont cafe. For starters, just check out the wonderful architecture and talented artisans upstairs. The Sunday brunch menu is incredible. Try the Tremont burger. The salads are particularly imaginative. They feature local craft beers and skilful bartenders. So treat yourself and someone special to something special at the Tremont cafe

Most of the meats are smoked and fully cooked, individually cry-o-vacked, ready to take home and re-heat. From Full racks of Pork Back Ribs, Smoked Burgers, Trout, Bacon and More. Everything is made in house, and full of flavour. Five house made BBQ sauces are at the table to play with, and purchase to take home

Reviewed By acomte - Toronto ON

My husband and I both love smoked meat and thought we would give this place a try. It was really good. I loved all the sauces that were available and how you can pair them with the different meats. Our food was Flavourful, tasty and good portions. You gotta eat here, the TV show, featured this place and it is no wonder. I had the French Onion Beef Brisket that was so good and my hubby got the Bacon, boar bacon, back bacon--i cant remember the name but it was loaded with bacon and he was really pleased with his.
The homemade sauces are fantastic and we were able to purchase them so we took 2 home.

Northwinds Brewhouse & Kitchen

Northwinds Brewhouse & Kitchen captures the adventurous spirit of our surrounding area by creating globally inspired hand crafted beer paired with innovative, locally sourced and seasonally focused menu.

Reviewed By Bikerbelle B - Toronto, Canada

First time here, and really enjoyed the open kitchen concept. Menu had some interesting items, and twists on traditional dishes.
Try the pretzels, served hot in a Mason style jar with two dips; they are delicious. The perogies were pretty tasty as well, although the horseradish cream was not to our liking.
The potato balls were hot and crispy on the outside, but we found them cool on the inside. They were heavy and not very flavourful overall.
The burger was delicious, as was the buffalo schnitzel. We tried the onsite brew, and it was okay; would enjoy a glass when there for lunch, but not likely going to be a regular buy.
This is a must try, the food is tasty and the service was good.
