A Unique Family Destination

Discovery Landing is a 14,200 square foot landmark building that faces out to the lake and offers prime storm and weather watching views. Designed by Baird Sampson Neuert, it offers residents and visitors a unique place to discover, celebrate, play, and relax by our lake.

Discovery Landing is open daily and features The Observatory, Spencer’s on the Waterfront Restaurant, The Bite, and information about the Waterfront and Burlington. Surrounding features include the Joseph Brant Museum, the Burlington Art Centre, and Tourism Burlington.

Great Food

Spencer's at the Waterfront offers casual fine dining that serves up fresh, local fare. Whether you choose to sit indoors or on the patio, the ambiance and lake view is spectacular. Join them Sunday mornings for their scrumptious brunch!

Looking for a quick bite or something more casual? You'll find The Bite on the lower level offering gourmet burgers, fries and ice cream. Enjoy the comfort of the Fireside Lounge or a sunny day on the Waterfall Deck.

For more information on dining at the Waterfront, call 905-633-7494.
