Henry's - Frying Pan Island

Yes. It looked like it when we drove by the Port Severn bridge on the 400.

Apparently the O.P.P. were trying to navigate the narrows and were not very successful. They loaded the boat on the trailer at Bridgeport and left. There was almost no traffic anyway.

Always made at least one trip a year to Henry's.  Last year it seemed as busy as ever.  Had heard that the local cottagers were not happy with all the aircraft visiting.  Gilly's in Snug is a great place.  Less than an hour away for me.  Payne's is good in PaB.  They added a licensed patio last year overlooking the channel.  Was there Friday night.  Come hungry as the servings are huge.  Three of us ordered the dinner for 2 to share and took some home.

x2. Now that Larry's in Pointe of Baril is gone, glad to find a reason to stop and stretch

PARRY SOUND – Gas up the boat, we’re going to Henry’s!

After nearly a month of uncertainty, Henry’s Restaurant San Souci location will officially open its doors June 23.

Just before the Victoria Day long weekend, the restaurant announced through its Facebook page that without necessary staff it couldn’t open its doors.

By May 30 things were looking up, another Facebook post said they were “working” on opening for business.

 

Owners, Paul and Joanne Elliot have not officially made the announcement public, but the North Star confirmed they will open in two weeks’ time.

“We are extremely pleased!” said Greg Aldworth of the Chippewa, that regularly takes guests out to the restaurant.

Accessible by either water or air — it is considered a federal airport, served by five commercial airlines — Henry’s has been a fixture on The Bay for 44 years, the last 25 under the ownership of the Elliots.

Never stopped there as I was usually headed for Elliot Lake or Timmins & trying to make time.

Just heard that Henry's is going to be offered up for sale. $ 1.9 million lock stock and barrel.

Are they truly that vindictive? That frame of mind indicates a total lack of care for small businesses and other tourists in the area.

Maybe the owners will sell to the cottage association and that is what it will take to make the owners "go away".

Property value might be the biggest factor, although I know nothing of the location or buildings on the site.  Be my best guess.

 

And that's a pretty arrogant and ignorant stance to have, on the part of the cottagers assoc.  You'd think they would have a better way of thinking ....

20% down, financing 1.52 million at 4.75% over 20 years, = $ 9,784.18 monthly.

Perhaps it could be acquired by an Ontario Conditions consortium.

Then I still couldn't afford to be involved monetarily.

But if I had Blake's money....:rolleyes:
