The waitress was very helpful and friendly... More

In town on a week night this place was busy. Always a good sign when the locals pack it out each day. Good snacks & good vibe.

My wife and I had lunch at the Kiln midweek, there was only about 4 tables with customers, the rest were empty. Good service and the Seafood Chowder was one of the best I have had. Sat by the fire which added to the atmosphere. Would definitely return for another lunch. Only negative comment I would have to make, which... More

Had to wait a little bit for a table but the food was worth the wait. Didn't skimp on the portions either.

A group of 5, we dined at Speights on a Monday night. It must have been the only place open in town that night as we had over an hours wait for a table.

The range of menu and quality of what was presented was very good. All within a good price range.The only negative was the outside smokers aroma sneaked in to the main restaurant.
