We stopped in for lunch hoping for a healthy lunch. There is a lot of fried food and pizza on the menu. The waitress said the seafood chowder was homemade and indeed it was!! It was the best chowder we had on this trip. Full of seafood (we paid for extra lobster) and in an excellent broth, it was delicious.... More

The waitress forgot our drinks at the beginning, she never once visited our table asking if ever thing was ok. The fish and chips meal was below average. The fish was dry and over cooked with the batter bringing hard and too well done. The coleslaw was warm and soupy, the chicken burger meal was less than adequate as the... More

A great restaurant with delicious food, great service and a beautiful view. The pizza is the best and the seafood is always fresh. Great food and family atmosphere.

We basically just stopped for some pizza and it was very good. We were in the area for a few days and some of the locals we talked to recommended it. The menu looked simple and plain but I would suggest you try some of the other great places in town. It has a great view of the water which... More

This restaurant provides a nice view of the harbour - the Bluenose II was in port when we were there. The food is good, but nothing out of the ordinary. The menu is varied and there is something for everyone. There is a wide variety of seafood (good fish and chips) on the menu as well as pizza, burgers and... More

My wife had soup and coconut cream pie. I had a sandwich, made with homemade bread. All were simple, but delicious. Our waitress was pleasant and helpful.
