Enjoy Some Dam Good Food at the Dam Restaurant (Seven Sisters Falls)

Friendly staff that serves with a smile, mouthwatering, too good to be true comfort foods, and only minutes away from the Seven Sisters Falls Dam; we’ve just described The Dam Restaurant!

From the cozy environment in their dining room and screened-in patio, the selection of their diverse menu (that also offers gluten-free and vegetarian options), to the hearty taste of home, this is the perfect place to grab a bite.

On their menu, you’ll find a variety of options, so even the pickiest of eaters can enjoy! On Guest Favourites, you’ll find their taco salad that comes with a freshly baked or deep-fried tortilla bowl filled with lettuce, taco meat, shredded cheddar, tomato, red onion, olives and jalapenos. Also on the list is homemade fish & Chips prepared with beer-battered haddock fillet, made in-house, served with homemade fries, lemon wedge and tartar sauce. And who can say no to wings? Their Delicious meaty wings are coated in your choice of honey garlic, spicy, salt and pepper, lemon pepper, sweet chili or BBQ sauce. No wonder these are fan favourites!

Have a Pizza Night with Moon Gate Artisan Bakery (Whitemouth)

That’s right; Moon Gate Artisan Bakery is back in full swing! On Friday nights, you can delight your taste buds with sinfully delicious wood-fired pizza made with only the best locally sourced ingredients. Some ingredients are sourced right on the Moon Gate land.

So, what are these ingredients? Their crusts are made with organic Manitoba flours with cheese being sourced through Bothwell Cheese. They find their meats from Archie’s Meats, Zinn Farms, Creek Meadows Grass-fed Beef, and Moon Gate also raise their own chickens and will see them exploring the property during your visit. Finally, their veggies are from Sweet Earth Gardens & Greenhouse, Danny’s Market Garden, Emma’s Garden, and Moon Gate Garden, located next to the oven.

Whether you’re picking up to enjoy at home or staying on the Moon Gate property, you’ll fall in love with their second to none wood-fire pizza that just might ruin boring oven-baked pizzas for you. Staying for a visit at Moon Gate adds a whole extra experience! Stay awhile and enjoy eating by the river, at one of the picnic tables, or while watching the sunset by the garden. Try your hand at playing Ladder Toss (an activity that both the kids and adults love trying), socialize with other visitors or with the owners themselves, Jenny and Michel. When you visit Moon Gate, you’re a part of the family.
