Saturday night stop in

We enjoyed being seated outside where you can watch boats come and go, or pull up for... More

Lunch here was wonderful. Even though we did not get a seat at the outdoor patio, the view was wonderful. A pint of beer is reasonable at $5.00. The Lobster Roll ($17.99) was wonderful. The sides are great. For a few extra $$ you can add the Poutine or Chowder....both were excellent, maybe the best ever. Our Waitress Melissa was... More

The people before us and after us were all seated down below by the windows or out on the patio while we were seated up above. We asked why and we were never given an... More

Restaurant is average for fried food. Fish & Chips are good but when it's busy they rush you through.

Nice patio and atmosphere, but being a true East Coaster I find it hard to enjoy eating fish and chips on a waterfront which is actually lake in Belleville. The waitress was helpful and food arrived quickly and hot. Beer was nice and cold. Servings were plentiful, but I did find the fish very greasy.

First time here I went solo and sat out on the patio to enjoy the channel. Had a well prepared seafood fare that was not only tasty but fresh. Service was good and priced accordingly.
