Nice option for dining on Grand Manan...located directly next to the Surfside Motel. Get there early in summer months as it gets very crowded. It is definitely worth the wait.

My family and I have been to this restaurant many times over the past few years. Always a good meal for a good price, but one day in particular stood out. August 31, 2014 was our last night on the island. We decides to go out for the night. Upon arriving we were informed that there would be a wait... More

Don't expect upscale fancy decor or fine wines. The friendly cheerful service is a bit slow but the food is what makes this place. It is down home cooking and amazing! It's located behind the Surfside Motel right on the beach with a view of the harbour. When we first entered it looked a little rough and we wondered what... More

We stopped by this spot for lunch and were not disappointed. There was so much food we couldn't finish it all. There is something for everyone whether you like seafood or something more "pub style". The prices were reasonable and the service was fast. They are only open from noon to 8pm so don't expect breakfast or a late supper.

Food was fine, yummy sweet potato fries. The service was friendly and prompt. They do not serve alcohol anymore and they close rather early, but this is a sleepy island.

We have been to this restaurant on both of our trips to the island. The food is very good. We had a mix of seafood dishes and children's fare. The portions are very good and the service is also very good. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone travelling to Grand Manan.

So I won't rave about this spot as the food was decent. Being a Maritimer, I've bought many seafood platters in my day, and for $30, I am sure I received more elsewhere. You won't find the locals knocking down the door as the pricing is certainly a little more towards tourist. The lack of quantity is not made up... More

Had dinner here twice while on Grand Manan. The restaurant has a great view overlooking Stanley Beach. There is plenty of parking. There were only a few places to eat off season. We found Galloways to be one of the better. The pan fried scallops and fries were very tasty and plentyful. The pan fried haddock was served with salad,... More
