Although fall is officially here, you can still steal some summer moments in a September that is touted to be warmer than average. When one of those balmy days reappears, slip off to Snug Harbour Seafood Bar and Grill in Port Credit for some peaceful moments on the patio before winter arrives. Snug Harbour Bar and Grill sits gloriously on the mouth of the Credit River leading to Lake Ontario and is tucked in front of the Credit Village Marina so you can watch the boats drift off into the lake while enjoying your meal.

On a languorous Friday afternoon in mid-September, the restaurant was dotted with patrons who were unmistakably enjoying the spectacular, sunkissed view from the patio, which is clearly the draw of this restaurant. Despite this fact, the food is executed well enough to stand on its own.

Fish and chips ($14.95) came with a huge piece of tenderly-cooked halibut, densely packed inside a crunchy, greaseless batter. Fries were obviously homemade; however, they lacked crispiness. Caesar salad with Cajun chicken ($15.95), although oversized for a lunch portion, successfully straddled the line between creamy and light while the Cajun spices provided a mild kick to a summer classic. Food was delivered by Tracy, who was friendly and prompt.

Other menu offerings include standard seafood appetizers such as oysters, mussels and clam chowder, as well as more substantial entrées such as blackened catfish ($21.99), rainbow trout ($23.49), stuffed whitefish ($27.99), Angus Reserve New York striploin ($27.99) and Cuban lobster tails. The well-rounded menu, which also features pizza, pasta and burgers, is slightly higher-priced than a casual eatery; however, taking into account the restaurant’s prime lakefront real estate, the prices are not exorbitant.
