The halibut fish tacos at Splashes were delicious! Big chunks of lightly grilled halibut with pineapple salsa and an avocado sauce served with cabbage on fresh corn tortillas!

This place is just another fast-food restaurant, nothing special. It was conveniently located, just 2 minutes from our hotel - so we gave it a try. We had the (very average) Clam Chowder, a Fish Taco (the best of what we had) and some fried fish with Chips. In case you like fried food, you might like Splash Cafe. But... More

Had dinner. Staff very friendly. Fast service for food. No seats available so finally sat at an outside table on a dark and cold night. No lights or heaters turned on outdoors even tho several of us were there. Fish and chips not good. Fish was chewy and tough...either under or over-cooked. I could only eat fish by coating in...

Great place to grab coffee and local pastries. Lots of families and locals so you know it's a good place to stop. Right in the heart of the downtown area, so lots of great things to look at while walking up and down the streets. We only had coffee and pastries, so can't review much else. A fun place in... More

I was really excited to try the clam chowder after checking out their website and reviews. A bit disappointed. It was overly salty to me. It's nice and thick, though! And the bread bowl was tasty and fresh. My daughter had a really good salad but I probably wouldn't return.

This very eclectic eatery offers everything from excellent burgers to artisan desserts. The mango iced tea is surprisingly good. I highly recommend this place. The staff is friendly, helpful, and fast.

We spotted this place on a walk into town from our hotel and decided to call in for breakfast. Parking was available at the back. The server was very friendly. Scrambled eggs, bacon and sourdough toast with coffee for 3 people was about $20 dollars total which I thought was great value given the quantity and the quality of the... More
