Seafood and a view

Thus was a good spot on a rainy day to have a seafood fix. I started with the seafood chowder, which was excellent. It was hot, not luke warm as can so often be the case.

Good food and great views of the waterfront. The service is a bit slow, but more time to enjoy the eagle nesting next to the hotel. The locals seem to enjoy the place too, and Friday and Saturdays can be busy.

We had dinner just as the sun was setting and the view is beautiful. The food was very good, a little more $$$ but very enjoyable.

Great dinner menu and some really good wines on offer,service was good if you arrive early but we did notice large groups(6+) could wait nearly an hour if each person on different meals. We had...

All persons who served us were very attentive. We were impressed by the decorations, and the view of the water. The food was excellent, however it is expensive.

Stayed in the hotel and room and facilities were superb. Nice hot tub and well equipped but small gym. Restaurant is good quality. I had a wonderful starter of steamed clams with bacon and garlic. It took a misorder and a long time to arrive but was worth the wait. I selected the Halibut with shrimp sauce. The flavour was... More

The kitchen was very slow, but the servers make up for this. Food was really good but a little on the pricey side.
