Good for Alberta

Look, any Fish Restaurant in Alberta and you know you are not going to get right off the boat fresh fish. That caveat aside this is a pretty good restaurant.

Sweet attentive staff, really good seafood but the key lime pie takes the cake!!! It's almost as good as the East Coast, but there's no place like home!!

Stopped by on a business trip in Ft McMurray after not visiting the restaurant in over 15 years. Order came up super fast and the food was excellent quality fish and seafood. The service was friendly and prompt. Will definitely return.

Usually there is always something to complain about with breakfasts in Fort Mac but not this time. Everything was cooked well, large moist... More

We ordered two of the specials - a mariners plate and a pasta dish with shrimp, lobster and cream sauce. Everything was delicious. I would have to... More

Food not as good as expected, even tho the selection of seafood was amazing for northern AB. Decor was pretty weak too, for the price of the meal.
