The food is good. I really enjoy the pizza. The prices are a little steep for what you get but the atmosphere is nice and it's a great place to go with friends.

We have always enjoyed the food here but our most recent visit was disappointing. We both had a burger with salad. The whole thing was about 5

The food is absolutely excellent and atmosphere superb. We thought we'd avoid the Halifax parking nightmare, and drove 35 minutes for a wonderful surprise. 29.99 you get an appetizer, main and dessert. Smoked salmon was a huge portion and delicious. The curried chicken was moist and delicious. Hubby had calamari which was light and ribs were outstanding! Atmosphere worth it... More

We stayed overnight in the super room upstairs. We were happily surprised to discover the spcial deal for a 3 course dinner at 30 $. The mediterranean salad, the salmon in a crust, were delicious. The steak could have been more tender. The draught beer, great. To be recommended!
