Oshawa / Whitby Saturday Afternoon

Please help!

I'll be attending the wedding of my cousin this coming Saturday. In between the ceremony in the Harmony Road area of Oshawa and the reception at Cullen Gardens I'd like to find a nice place to sit on a patio and relax with some of my close relatives. I welcome all suggestions you may have, chains etc. Thanks so much!

  1. shoeless joe's at the north east corner of Brock and Winchester, Cullen Gardens will be south on Brock to Taunton turn right onto Taunton ... it is very close to Shoeless

    1. Every chain restaurant is out in Oshawa and Whitby, in the end you are getting chain restaurant food though. Try this place in downtown Oshawa, the food is excellent and the family that runs it are local. Price point is reasonable as well.

        Yes, I agree with your sentiment. But we will not likely be eating, just drinking before heading to the reception for dinner. A nice patio is the most important factor. Sorry I should have made that more apparent.

      2. Just east of Oshawa is Bowmanville ( about 10 minutes from Harmony Road on 401 ). Bobby C's on the marina has a large outside patio and is never full. Great place to have a draught beer and watch the boats and chat, chill out, etc.
