My favorite thing to eat here is the buttermilk haddock. For dessert they have really good fried cheesecake.

With everything closed in Mahone Bay on Saturday night travelled 20 minutes to the Galley and had a meal that was the best we had during our 17 day trip in Nova scotia Cape Breton. Lobster poutine was amazing a must order!!
