Great fish and chips. Good place to relax. Service good. Atmosphere is Pub Grub with good food and reasonable prices. Open late for dinner.

Service was excellent, but thick deep fried chicken strips on a large crusty bun were at best awkward to eat. have found food not hot a time or two. The place is very clean and the atmosphere pleasantly subdued for the most part.

We were taken there by family. Pleasant if indifferent service. My meal was a little too ambitious for the place (a kind of German take on bangers and mash), and the beer selection was pathetic for a 21st-century bar. My wife's fish was excellent. The table wasn't clean. I only finished the dessert (allegedly coconut-cream pie) because I didn't want... More

Everything on the menu is good. The burgers may be the best in Truro too...top three for sure! Service is almost always great too...even for large groups.

I went there for lunch. Nothing fancy. The food is basic, tasty, with good portions at a reasonable price. You can't go wrong.

This is a great spot to get a tasty and reasonably priced lunch. I have yet to get a meal I didn't like. I don't know who the chef is, but whoever it is, they really know what they're doing! I've been there several times for lunch, as well as a few times for supper, and have never been disappointed.... More

I ate here with three friends, for dinner on a Friday night. We arrived around 7 pm. The place was packed, and we ended up just cleaning off our own table and sitting down. It took 20 minutes for someone to notice us, 15 minutes for our drinks to arrive, and nearly an hour for our food. The food was... More

This is a regular stop for my family. Half of us have the fish & chips and the boys feast on the biggest, tastiest, house smoked St. Louis ribs around. Their fish & chips got even better. They now use 100% Nova Scotia wild haddock and it's processed right here at home. The flavor is so fresh and tasty. The... More

Our first experience here was during a New Year's Eve party. We were impressed with the service, the food and atmosphere! Clean, warm and friendly. Our subsequent visits were equally on par. Nothing fancy here but rustic, and relaxed. We will definitely go back again.
