When in this area of Nova Scotia you have to have Digby scallops. Garrison offered several dishes featuring scallops. Both my wife and I ordered the seared scallops in a buttery garlic sauce. I was surprised to see when our dishes arrived that the scallops were very small. They were nearly the size of bay scallops verse the larger and... More

You need to be able to climb the stairs to your room. Simple breakfast choices, eggs or granola and fruit or continental. Dining room on site. Comfy accommodation right on Main Street. Quiet evenings. Right across from the fort. Go on the ghost walk.

The restaurant at this Inn is fantastic and open to off street customers. I had the grilled Caesar salad and the curry and it was awesome. Service was friendly and efficient. Don't think twice about dining here!

I'm being solicitous with an "average" rating. Not many diners when we were there and the service was still somewhat slow. Too bad because our server was really sweet, had it not been for her my rating would be "poor". Venue is OK, it's got charm. I had Digby scallops which I was looking forward to. Portion was the size... More

Everything was great except for the scallops! Definitely overcooked and didn't taste like scallops. Fresh vegetables were super and the appetizer of beefsteak tomatoes was excellent. We would have been okay with the price if it had been better. (but NO!)

Seared scallops on a bed of tender veggies - lovely! The service was good and the staff were friendly.

Had two meals here whilst in Annapolis. Food was OK as was service but there was nothing to mark it out of the ordinary. Preferred sitting inside than out where we got cold.

I wish we could review this restaurant as well as some others, not sure if we had a fill in chef. The staff were so friendly, the service was fantastic, polite and prompt. But the quality of food was bland, lacking flavour or basic seasoning. The vegetables were fresh, but little was done to create flavors. We had the scallop... More

I ordered a fillet steak medium, got a strip steak well done. My wife ordered a red Thai curry with seafood and instead got what was the generic yellow curry flavor. The chocolate mouse was boring and the creme carmel which is supposed to be creamy tasted ok but had the texture of cottage cheese. The only good thing was... More
