Dont' judge this book by its cover

Looks like a cheap diner, but the service was fast, friendly and courteous. The food was incredibly fresh and well prepared. They are proud of their moose pot pie, so I had that. They also get fresh seafood (of course), and the seafood chowder was delicious and unique.

We went in for a Ice cream cone, and there they were, on the shelf, fresh out of the oven CINNAMON BUNS. It's so hard to find good cinnamon buns. We took a chance, and OMG.....DELICIOUS.

Stop by for some treats, the ice cream was good but we also took home a turtle cheese cake maybe who ever bakes should look up how to make cheese cake, no flavor almost tasted like cream cheese and whipped topping mixed together.The bottom was over a 1/2 thick of graham crumbs to make the top look bigger totally disappointed.

We enjoy their Jigs dinner, a Newfoundland specialty that is not normally on the menu. Our server was friendly and helpful.

Excellent service from the young guy that served us followed by a nice view and good food!. Only thing I would caution people that have a fish allergy as the fried food has a slight hint of fish taste on it.

Food was alright, mostly trading on the novelty of moose burgers and what not. Staff was a bit odd and rude, or in another case, almost the opposite and too aggressively friendly. Meh.

I found this family friendly restaurant good. The main entres were about $12.00 to $15.00 per plate. Breakfast was a good deal. They have almost a whole page on the menu dedicated to the many ways to consume a moose - yes I induldged and I am glad I did. This is a modest restaurant and it fills quickly as... More

The seafood chowder and homemade roll were awesome. The food takes time, everything is homemade. If you want fast food there's always Macdonald's in Corner Brook. If you want honest to goodness delicious, homemade food with friendly staff...eat at Earle's.
