A little About Us

Buoys from the beginning until now.

What started out as just a spontaneous stop, turned out to be our new home and our ongoing passion for food!


We opened our doors in May 15th of 2009 and started out small with no inside dining, minimal patio space, and only take-out. Through out the years we have expanded our menu, our patio and our inside dining to better serve you and the growing demand of our customers. We are always committed to supporting local and having fresh foods from farm to your plate. 


We would like to thank all the wonderful farmers, local producers and food artisans that have been so helpful to our success. Most of these wonderful people are only within 10-20 km from our location, and of course are all located here on Manitoulin Island. 


Included in this list are Burt Farms, Purvis Fisheries, Meeker Aquaculture, Farmer Ted, Finnia Chocolate,  Splitrail Brewing, and many food producers that are part of the Manitoulin and Ontario Food scene.


We love what we do, we love who we support, we love making great tasting food, and we love being able to continually serve. Welcome to Buoys Eatery!
