5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2014 NEW

We arrived here at 5pm in time for the early bird special. $18 for a great meal; we had a choice of about 6 entrees, soup or salad and bread rolls. We were pleasantly surprised by the welcome we received, the menu choice, the cost and the awesome food and service we received. The soup was pear, mushroom and leek,... More

Just would like everyone to know that VR's is consistently very good in the quality and taste of their foods, and the servers blow my mind at what they can remember day to day on the specials! Went for an Early Bird special the other night. My husband had catch of the day which was Cod and I had Calamari.... More

This is an excellent restaurant. The staff is attentive and friendly and the food is consistently very good. The menu is varied and you have the alternative of a full portion or a small sized portion at a slightly reduced price. The salad bar is excellent. It is very child friendly. One is always greeted with a very hearty smile... More

We were on our way to Ptown & got hungry, they served breakfast & that was what we were looking for. The staff is VERY welcoming, dining room is light airy & clean. Seated with a friendly flourish, he got eggs pancakes sausage the usual. I opted for cranberry walnut pancakes, absolutely love at first bite! So good. They have... More

We visited this restaurant as our motel was a few miles away and they suggested it for breakfast. I also looked at online reviews and it really is the best breakfast. We went the next day too as I knew it was a gem. The waitress we had on both visits were fantastic and the lobster eggs Benedict was delicious.... More

I have been back to this restaurant each season. The food is consistently excellent as well as the service. You can tell the pleasant owners keep a close pulse on what is going on. There are early bird specials but you can always get smaller "bistro" portions. It doesn't matter what you order as everything is always fresh, fresh, fresh!... More

I can only comment on the breakfast here. This is a great place to take your family. There is a full menu with something for everyone. The service is friendly and quick. The food was quite good and the portions large. The prices can't be beat. If you are feeding a family of hungry children while on vacation I would... More

This was our second Sunday breakfast at VR's. It was intentional as the first was delightful and the second even more so as we looked forward to it. The owners, Peter and Diane, were both present and prominent in greeting and seating diners. To me it says something when the owners are active participants in the daily activities of the... More

The restaurant was recommended by a friend that says locals eat here too. We were so impressed that we went back on three different occasions which we don't usually do when on vacation!

I thought I had had great breakfasts but this place took the prize. The food was just amazing and the service really nice. Well worth the small wait we had one day!
