Welcome to Manitoulin Island, where you’ll be surrounded by crystal clear waters, natures beauty, and rays of the Island sun!

Pierside Restaurant, established in 1987, was one of the first original buildings in South Baymouth. We are known to many as “The Yam Family” who came from the urban life of Toronto to moving and immersing ourselves in a variety of different businesses here on the rural grounds of Manitoulin Island.

From the first moment we walked into the place, we knew that this little charm had future potential and thus began a new chapter in our lives. It started out as a source of financial support for a growing family of four to becoming the second generation of a successful and respected family business. Since the beginning, we as a family are involved in the day-to-day operations and have made many great friends over the years and are proud to have built a strong and valuable platform within our community.

Our extensive menu combines dishes from comfort to casual foods, featuring our Signature Whitefish & Chips made with the same perfected recipe for decades. The origin of our food begins with the best ingredients and whenever possible, they are sourced from our local farmers and businesses. With a rich history of hospitality, guests can feel welcome and enjoy comfort food at its finest!

We truly believe that our team of dynamic individuals are the foundation of our growth and development, and we always aim to provide a memorable guest experience.

It has been our pleasure to serve you for more than 35 years, and we thank you for choosing to dine with us!

– The Yam Family (Justin, Linda, Brandon, Jane & David)
