It is a casual family restaurant where the local people eat. We were glad to find a place like this rather than the tourist traps where the food... More

Good menu, locally sourced food, attentive staff, a place where the locals go. The nightly special of pork with maple smoked bacon onion jam along with roasted potatoes and green apple sauerkraut was excellent.

We were very disappointed with our meal, we ordered standard fare - fish n chips and a club sandwich - fries as a side was a bad idea - they were regular cut frozen fries and not at all tasty. We were put in a small room with a large table of very loud ladies - could not wait to... More

My husband and I shared a bowl of seafood chowder -really good, then shared a scallop platter served on mashed potatoes with scallops wrapped in bacon, and cooked cauliflower, broccoli and half of a red beet. A tasty roll added to the great meal.
