4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2015 NEW

This establishment is attached to a Quality Inn. It absolutely exceeded all my expectations. The food was very tasty and the selection was broad enough for anyone visiting but what makes it a strong 4 is the politeness and professionalism of the staff and the view of the harbour. It's worth trying even if you're not staying at the hotel.

Food is ok. Service it great. Everything seems ok, but the pricing is seems a bit high for the food you get. My only real complaint is the bacon in my breakfast was too greasy. It had pools of grease in the bacon curves.

Really great service for a restaurant in St. John's. Really nice interior and harbour view. Comfortable seating. The steaks were amazing; tender and cooked perfectly. The fries seemed like they were fried in oil that wasn't up to temperature. They were limp and oily...not the crisp, delicious fries we were hoping for. Vegetable side was over cooked. Overall, the steaks... More

I intentionally will not read reviews of a restaurant until after have been there myself. Myself and my wife went here for an anniversary dinner. We ate without even looking at pricing. For an appetizer we had the Spinning Wheel of wings, fully loaded potato skins and nachos. We both had steak. She had a steak with a skewer of... More

Breakfast was not included but the Rumpelstiltskin restaurant downstairs was excellent and the breakfast was well priced. I had a bacon/egg/cheese sandwich for about $5 and it was delicious. Rumpiltilskins was a good restaurant to eat at. We ate their one evening as well as breakfast. Server was amazing and food was delicious. It was also a great view!
