Earl's

Very friendly staff. Home cooked Newfoundland food. They serve a great Jigg's Dinner. Always a good sign when lots of locals are eating here!

We ate here our first night in Rocky Harbour. We had prompt service and the atmosphere was cozy. Food was simple but a tad expensive compare to other options in town that were of higher quality. We had halibut and moose pie. All in all a solid meal.

We dined on a Saturday night. It was very busy and had to wait 15 mins or so. Once seated we were taken care of in a timely manner. This is a family type restaurant with many items on the menu. My husband had the moose burger (was a bit on the dry side) was an ok choice. I had... More

We were hungry and so we found supper: some nice fresh panfried fish and chips with side root veggies, and deepfried fish with mashed potatoes and root veggies, both with a beer. If they could just reduce the glistening oil a smidgen, and triple up on the coleslaw, this would be a better meal. Nice enough kids working there, crowded... More

Earl's may be a local's restaurant. If your looking for deep fried, greasy and heavy this is the place. They say they won't be rushed but the service is slow and fresh vegetables don't exist. We wouldn't go back.

This restaurant was recommended to us and we loved our meal and the gift shop. Best fish cake I've ever eaten, sad we only tried the breakfast.

Earl's is always packed and for good reason. The food is delicious and they offer alot of dishes you will be hard pressed to find in other restaurants. If you want a moose burger this is the spot to visit! They also have jig's dinner with moose roast which is awesome. Of course they have a large variety on their... More

A few weeks ago I was visiting Rocky Hrb. and was directed to Earle's Restaurant. The first thing I noticed was how clean the floor was. My mother always said, "if the floor is clean the whole place is clean!" We were asked to choose a table and we settled in the corner by the fire place. After only a... More
