Firstly, thank you for taking the time to write your review. It was apparent, even based on previous reviews with us, your experience was far from even adequate! Although we are very excited to be making such changes all at once, it does come with its challenges. The training and oversight of new employees in all facets of the business... More

Had a good lunch here. Food was good and the service was OK as well. Things were decently clean and prices were fair. I would come back here for another meal. I recommend the beef dip.

Well we did ask. We were told here and quarterdeck inn pubs were up and down well they were right. Take your chance. Nice waitress. Food is good but fish is not freshest. Certainly have had worse

We had a drink here on our first evening and were struck by the friendlyness of the place, both staff and customers. We ate here the second evening, the rib was out of this world and my wife said that the sea food taglatelle was the best meal she ate in Canada this trip.

We stopped in here today while on a short overnight trip, I noticed the place last time in town and it looked fresh and clean. It is sort of a grill bar, good size, has a separate room sounded like a pool table in there but not too noisy, I ordered the fish and chips, the fish was good size... More

We were so grateful that we went inside this rather unappealling looking facade - we found wonderful food with hospitable service. We were looking for a nice place to have a good dinner and certainly found it! The food was as good as you would find in a fine restaurant in a big city and the service was attentive and... More

Sorry for the delayed response, but thank you very much for your review! As I mentioned in a recent review, we agree with your concern on outside appearances. Here's hoping our current renovations and outside patio addition add some exterior eye appeal to go along with providing a pleasant dining experience! Cheers! More
