Executive Chef Greg Luckey
Born in North Bay and moving to the big city as a child, Greg has returned to his roots to be closer to his family. Greg has spent many years in the kitchens of Burlington, ON most notably as sous chef at Canyon Creek Chophouse. Greg started cooking when his very active family was always busy with sports and he learned to cook between games. He then decided to do an apprenticeship expanding his knowledge and love for flavour.
When not sourcing new local ingredients Chef Greg can be found cheering his Maple Leafs and Blue Jays as well as spending time with his brothers on the ATV trails.

Wine Guy Shawn Carr
Returning to Callander Bay where he spent countless summers and vacations Shawn has found a tight knit community of friends with whom he attended Nipissing University while taking his Bachelor of Business Administration. Shawn enjoys great fishing days and watching the Habs beat the Leafs (not likely for awhile 'sigh'!)
Shawn previously worked at some of Canada's most prestigious restaurants and resorts such as Emerald Lake Lodge, Araxi Restaurant and Deerhurst Resort. Gaining a love for the industry he decided to partner in restaurants in Whistler, BC such as Wild Wood and Elements then in Golden, BC with Whitetooth Mountain Bistro and Rockwater Grill. Achieving a Wine Spectator 'Award of Excellence' in many past endeavours continues as a goal for 1886.
Local food, craft beer, cool cocktails and enjoying the company of friends and family over a bottle of wine sounds about right doesn't it?
Let's go fishing!
