Great spot by the water.

Slow service but who cares on a beautiful sunny day on the island. Had good local beers and appetizer of yam fries which were the best I have ever had. A lovely spot after walking through the local market.

The food is fresh, nicely presented and well priced. But the service is outstanding! They ordered pizza one evening for us from one of their affiliates and had it delivered to their location.

Disappointed with an expensive meal. Menu mentioned that the lamb burger was served with a brioche bun but came with a white kaiser bun:( My wife had the seafood chowder which was bland tasting. Many other places to eat. First and last time I will ever go there! Would not recommend to anyone! Service was mediocre at best.

Restaurant is upstairs with a great view of Ganges harbour. Friendly staff. The pulled pork sandwich very good, not over sauced. Chicken salad tasty & fresh but too many ingredients - mango, raisins, peanuts & peanut sauce but could use a bit more chicken.

This is a beautiful restaurant in a fantastic location. We sat on the upper floor and had a wonderful view of the very scenic harbor. Our waitress Daniel was great - very helpful and happy! One of our party ordered the Clam Chowder and it was the best that we've ever had. My wife and I shared the Shelter Chicken... More

It's hard to find a decent place to eat in Ganges. We wanted to eat local lamb or beef as we know it's free range and pasture fed. We rolled the dice and gave the Oystercatcher a try. We were glad we did! We had the lamb pops and they were outstanding. The lamb comes directly from the restaurant owners'... More

It has been a couple of years since we ate there and we swore that we would never go again. The food was awful and the service pathetic. It is a great shame given the perfect location.

our server was delightful and attentive. the food we ordered exceeded our expectations given that it appeared to be a pub patio, wonderful salad and gluten free pizza.
