This restaurant first of all is in a perfect location, right on the water. Great prices for really good BBQ. We ordered the pulled pork sandwich with kettle chips. It was an excellent sandwich. Good BBQ flavour with a sauce that we also dipped our chips into. Service was excellent and Canadian $ taken at par. Nice surprise. We will... More

We stopped here hoping for a Title bit of something good to eat. As it turned out all we got was calamari and mussels. Nothing to write home about. Beer selection was also nothing to rave about. I expected so much more from a tourist area like this but overall disappointed. Even thou our food was cooked good and favors... More

We stopped in down here for a drink after touring through the town. We decided on the kettle chips & chicken wings for a light lunch. The prices were very good & the food was delicious! The view on the patio was fantastic...we watched boats come in and dock, and also pull back out onto the bay.. the customer service... More

Stopped at this restaurant after spending the day in Alex Bay and taking the Uncle Sam's boat cruise. Food was good, nothing outstanding but sitting on the "Dock of the Bay" was priceless...could have sat there all day. I had the steamed clams which were on special....5 out of 10 and the salmon salad with wasabi dressing...7 out of 10.... More

We chose this place due to the positive ratings on Trip Advisor. We were greated at the door with "If you want to eat on the deck, there will be a long wait". We chose to eat in the side room which had a view of the dock without the breeze, but was quite pleasant. Our waitress, greeted us quickly... More

This is a typical restaurant, nothing fancy but the food was excellent!! My family ordered clams and loved them and they were at a great price!! I had a stuffed tomato with chicken salad and it was very good! The view was absolutely beautiful right on the water looking out at one of the bridges. Out server was very personable... More

My husband and I had the woodsmoked turkey sandwich-awesome! Their hickory smoked turkey is stacked high on panini bread. My daughter had the smoked turkey dinner. That also was amazing. It was smoked and cooked to perfection. Prices were reasonable for a tourist area. Our waitress Misty was fantastic; she was attentive and pleasant! Will definitely return 😊
