Fine Dining At “Catch 22 Fresh Market Grill” Wasaga Beach (Video)

“An Expression of Culinary Delights”

Chef Bob July 2014

Well if that doesn’t entice you to visit “Catch 22 Fresh Market Grill” here in Wasaga Beach , I’m not sure what will.

Many residents already know that Catch 22 is one of the best restaurants in town and were extremely pleased when Chef Bob moved here from Collingwood.

In the last few years the options for eating out in Wasaga Beach have grown considerably. From a quick inexpensive bite to a meal to rival any large city restaurant, all tastes (and wallets) are catered for. Catch 22 is one of the best in town for lunch and dinner.

Turn towards the beach at the Riverbend Plaza traffic lights and head down Mosley Street; you will find Catch 22 Fresh Market Grill is on your left.

Chef Bob was a bit nervous :) so to confirm opening times:

Lunch Tuesday to Friday 11.30am to 2.30pm.

Dinner Tuesday to Sunday 5pm to close.
