The service was friendly, the food was excellent. Our service was prompt, and friendly. It came highly recommended, and I would pass that same recommendation along.

There was no shade outside at the restaurant so we ate inside where there was no atmosphere. Our lobster roll was below standard.

We shared an appetizer of calmari then had fishcakes and scallops. Everything was good. Tried 2 desserts and they were excellent.

My husband and I stopped in for lunch, and enjoyed the chowder and crab cakes (though these were a bit heavy on the potato). Nice selection of local beers too. Friendly, efficient service.

Want to taste your seafood? Owner what it is like without batter? Seriously, This restaurant is tremendous. Excellent, creative recipes. Seafood chowder has large pieces of shellfish including three big scallops. Five stars. Ate outside on a cool summer evening with the clip clop of a horse and carriage periodically in the background.

Both salads and pizza are great. Inside and outside dining is available. Tables are a little tightly spaced

Sat on the patio overlooking the harbour and the ships. Great view for lunch. Eight of us, four adults, four kids and teenagers, and they split up the tables. Like they knew we'd want to each do our own thing. Everyone raved about the food. That's an amazing thing for 8 people from very different perspectives. The service was outstanding.... More
