An unexpected Little Local Diner

View from out of the diner is excellent. The wait staff went above and beyond what was expected. The local traditional cuisine was a welcome surprise. The pies were outstanding and the prices were very reasonable. If traveling from Digby, NS to Yarmouth, NS on Hwy 101 it is worth the small... read more

My sister lives down the street from this restaurant and does take out once a week. We were up for a visit and decided to eat there. I had the large clam plate and my husband the fisherman splatter. The size of the meal was almost to much to eat but we managed to finish. If I lived there I... More

Clams and chips are the BEST your going to have in Nova Scotia! They also have rapure pie (an acadian dish). this restaurant is a important part of our little cornor of l'Acadie. They also have cabins for rent. The view of the Baie sainte Marie is just out of this world.

We eat here often. It's a family favourite. Our usual meal of choice is clams and fries or the chicken rappie pie. Either one is awesome. Let's put it this way...the servers know what we want before we even sit down. Friendly staff.

We ate lunch here, I ordered the scallops and fries, my husband had the burger and potato skins. He liked his dinner, said the burger was pretty good, but the potato skins weren't great. It's too bad, because the problem was with the toppings, the actual skins were cooked well, but the toppings were not very high quality (think processed... More

I got fish and shrimp. The highlights: 1.large portions of fish. 2. The place has a neat atmosphere with church bench seats, which is characteristic of the Catholic history of the area. 3. The seafood is cheap. Downsides: 1. All the seafood is deep fried. (At least, it appeared that way) 2. The veggies were frozen from a bag. You... More
