Friendly folks, average food

An ordinary menu, and the food is average, nothing great. The staff are friendly, and the service is good. Nothing to write home about, but an OK place.

Despite all the neg reviews we decided to give it a try. We had a very nice meal. We were greeted by very friendly staff. We ordered a hot turkey sandwich andthe fish and chips. Servings were not huge but were adequate. Could have used some veg. The fish was freh and very tasty and the turkey was excellent. Took... More

The hamburger patty was obviously frozen, as it began to crumble immediately upon the first bite. It's small, and about 1/8 inch or 3 mm thick. Lettuce was okay, but tomato was really bad and really thin. Onions? A few flakes. Fries? Frozen. I think even the buns were frozen, and they also crumbed upon eating. I was just so... More

It looks like your typical 60's greasy spoon and also the smell of grease hits you as soon as you open the door. However the waitress was super friendly, so we decided to give it a try. Food was served quickly and to say the portions are small is an understatement. The plates they use are slightly bigger than a... More

THIS PLACE SHOULD BE CLOSED DOWN - If it wasn't for the fact that there was no other place in town that was opened and the fact that my bladder could hold no more, we would not have eaten there... The "waitress" was wearing a dirty black t-shirt, there is only one bathroom (which was disgusting), my husband's hamburger (which... More

I have left more food on my plate than the serving sizes presented here! Is it possible that a settlement known for its fishing history have a delicious fish and chips lunch, not this place , both the fish and chips were direct from the package, absolutely disgusting! A club house sandwich that barely fit on a tea saucer! I... More

Menu is small, and the food quality is not that great; e.g. crinkle cut fries, iceberg lettuce. Staff was friendly though.

Gave this restaurant a try,but regretted it....not a good place to eat. I had the "world famous turkey dinner" which was absolutely terrible and certainly not worth the price. My daughter had the turkey 'soup' which was water with some onions and carrots and minuscule amounts of turkey. Would definitely NOT recommend this place.

Although the portion size was a little wanting, the staff was super friendly and attentive. The food itself was not that bad either, it was just a bit too small after going for a long walk beforehand.
