Nice little restaurant around the corner from my office . Good food friendly service. Had the hickory chicken which was very nice. Would recommend for a business lunch or dinner with friends. The location is a little hidden but it has a nice view of the ocean from some of the tables.

I eat at this restaurant on a regular basis as its local but the restaurant is amazing. There is always so much to choose from on the menus, they have a specials board too which gives you more choice. The service is always great with friendly and helpful staff. The food is the best part with the food being very... More

Visited with family on a very busy Saturday night. Food was average to say the least, haddock size was huge but unfortunately was way overcooked and very dry, chips on the other hand could have been in the fryer for far longer, shame. Macaroni was lacking in cheese flavour throughout sauce. Venison was superb, but potatoes were like bullets. All... More

It was dark so we couldn't enjoy the view but the biggest let down was the food. I wasn't expecting much but it was poorly cooked and not very tasty. A friend had the turkey dinner and the stuffing was some sort of pre-fab puck shaped thing. He didn't eat it. I had the venision stew type dish and it... More

We visit often with family or friends. Extensive menu with Chef Specials each night. Great atmosphere as owners have retained many of the historic shipping decor which adds to the ambience of the restaurant. Seen many changes over the years and the menu suits all tastes. Love the fish and fajitas. Portions are good and service excellent. Ask for window... More

Friend phoned on a Wednesday evening to book expecting to get a table no bother but it was almost fully booked but the one we got was fine even though we were kinda stuck in a corner. To compensate for that the service was good and the food excellent. Plenty to choose from to suit anyone's taste and the portions... More

A very extensive menu, so much to choose from, II am one of those people that can never decide what to order, and when the meal arrives I wish I had ordered what my friend had ordered :( But last night I ordered the Venison Bourguignon and I really enjoyed it, very tasty! Nice service and most enjoyable, highly recommend... More
