Delightful Setting -Good Dining Experience

The interior of the Garrison House was charming and contained lots of fishing related items to look at! The atmosphere was comfortable and personal. The grilled salad was delicious. I found my salmon dish good but not great and rather small in portion size. The vegetable accompaniment was bland... read more

Great staff, Great menu, incredible atmosphere in the screened room. The food was one point and top notch. Beers, mixed drinks and selection of wine was above par. You would be a fool to not enjoy this local establishment.

There meals are always consistent in quality and use local produce. On warm days you can chose to sit out on the screened porch for your meal. The menu has both seafood and land lovers choices. A good bet is to ask which desserts are made in house and have one of them. A nice spot for a couple celebrating... More

We went here for our five year anniversary dinner and were so pleased with our choice. The food was amazing, very reasonable prices, and the staff was extremely friendly. I ordered a steak which was cooked to perfection and my husband got a delicious pork tenderloin. We both were served huge portions loaded with veggies and were blown away by... More

We ate here two nights running as it was so good. The staff are very friendly and helpful and managed to cater for my gluten/dairy allergy. The food and service was excellent. Highly recommended.

I have been to the Garrison House Inn for dinner on many occasions and this latest visit was as wonderful as always. The Haddock was amazing, very fresh and served with a great selection of fresh veggies. We split the chocolate cake which was to die for! Although I did not have an appetizer this visit I would highly recommend... More

I called to make reservations and mentioned that it was her birthday. A lovely old mansion in the heart of town, we entered through the beautiful old front entranceway. Invited to seat ourselves, we decided on a quiet table near a window. Linen service, casually professional staff, soft smooth jazz playing in the background setting the stage for a beautiful...

We ate here based on the recommendation of our B&B. Delightful old house and nice atmosphere on the screened-in porch. Service was friendly and timely. However, the food was not very good. I ordered the scallops/pasta dish special. I would not have served this in my own home - colorless, tasteless, tiny scallops in a watery sauce (and, it was... More

I really liked the fact that it was absolutely no trouble at all for them to serve us a very light meal at dinner as we had had a late Sunday brunch. The maitre de and the server were both most accommodating in this regard. We had a very nice soup and salad. The Nova Scotia wines were excellent especially... More
