Trailside Restaurants for the Ontario Snowmobiler

Where to eat when you just want to get back out there and ride!



For the Ontario Snowmobiler every hour of the winter season is precious time that could be spent in one of two ways: On the trails or something else. Something less thrilling. Something less rewarding, less I've-been-looking-forward-to-this-all-week. Whatever that something may be you can bet we'll choose the trails over it any day! 

So when you're out there and everything is going your way—the trails are freshly groomed, the weather is perfect, you're surrounded by friends—you don't want to waste any time looking for something to eat. And you will need to eat. So be prepared.

Here we present the big list of the best eateries on or near Ontario's famed 8 loop tours. These are all snowmobile friendly establishments frequented by riders who know you've got to fuel up both tanks to make a successful day of it. Good places to meet local sledders and get first-hand up-to-the-minute news on trail conditions, directions to those scenic spots you know are out there and most important of all: some nourishment to do what you want to do most. Ride! You might just find a something else that comes in at a close second!

This is a work in progress. If you have a suggestion please let us know using the comments feature at the bottom of the page or email ian@thenewbusiness.ca.
