Here's the good: In general, the entrées are good. The seafood chowder was nice too, but soup has to be hot, not warm. The water is great because I know it comes from a well. Here's the bad: The staff are heavy-footed on the loose floor. You need your floor tightened-up and the staff need to lighten-up on their foot... More

We had breakfast at this restaurant. There was a strong smell of fried food, the table was dirty and the seating was full of crumbs, we had to clean it before we set.

If you are from eastern Canada, this place will feel like your Gramma's old kitchen, and so will the food. If you are a tourist from afar, this simple restaurant will serve you dishes typically local. Nothing fancy but a great taste of the Maritimes. Homemade specialties and a few nice surprises on the menu. First time I had a... More

I love this restaurant and eat here everytime I am in PEI. I find the staff super friendly and I love that they serve up homemade meals. I stayed at the hotel next door several times also and always eat here. Having a home cooked meal when you are traveling is a great feeling, I also enjoyed the prices of... More

We were so satisfied with our meal we wanted to eat there on our second night as well but had already made reservations elsewhere! Haddock was cooked to perfection, salmon was exquisite. Great little restaurant, pleasantly surprised!

We eat there every time we are in PEI & have always been happy with the food & friendly service. It certainly isn't a fancy place but well worth visiting. We ate here twice on this trip.

We were staying next door and called in at a busy period not long before they were due to close. The mainly young staff were very good and the food was great

We were staying nearby and this was the choice. Dated dining area but the food was great. Service was quick and attentive. Lots if locals came in while we were here, the local joint. Food was served hot.
