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!

We dropped by for their all you can eat fish and chips during the summer. Generous portions, fish that is fresh with a crunchy coating, and very pleasant surroundings made this a favorite. Hence we return again and again, absolutely everything I have ordered is yummy. It is also nice to see a menu that changes seasonally, now I can... More

Hands down best place in Windsor, only two problems, one being they are never open other then a couple hours in the evening, two being unless your spending a lot of money including appetizers, main course, dessert and drinks they tend to make you feel bad, luckily the food is amazing and will keep us going back :)
