You'll Feel Like You're Sipping Cocktails In Miami At This Ontario Lakeside Patio

There's a lighthouse and a tiki bar on site too!

If you’ve got an appetite for travel but can’t find the time or the money to go anywhere, don’t worry. With a touch of imagination, this lakefront patio in Ontario with harbour views will whisk you away to Miami. And you won’t even have to pay for a plane ticket. 

Located less than an hour from Toronto in Oakville, Ontario, the Bronte Boathouse is only a day trip away. 

The restaurant sits on the shores of Lake Ontario and is surrounded by harbour views that will really float your boat. 

There’s even a little lighthouse on the premises to further add to the nautical vibes. 

But, with a menu full of seafood, pizzas, cocktails, and more, it’s not just the views that will have you falling in love with this spot. 

If you’ve never met a slushie or a glass of wine you didn’t like, then the Frozé All Day frozen cocktail was practically made for you.

A raw bar featuring oysters, sushi, and shrimp is also sure to make your mouth water. 

So if you’re looking to add a splash of fun to your summer staycation plans, this might be the perfect place.

Menu items at Bronte Boathouse range in price from $8 to $28, with most items hovering around the $15 mark. 

So it’s relatively budget-friendly too. 

According to a post on the restaurant’s Instagram, they have recently extended their patio and it now includes a tiki bar plus upper and ground-level seating.
