“Good Pub Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Despite the mixed reviews we ate there and had good food and friendly service. It is a pub it was busy and had a good atmosphere. If you are happy with simple food and a few beers then go there. If your looking for fine dining then there really isn't anywhere in Pitcou.

“Disappointment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Service was excellent, décor awesome. we ordered for starters the "seafood chowder" very disappointing, broth good, but they should have put on their menu "Fish chowder" only fish...no other seafood in this chowder i.e. scallops, shrimp, etc. We decided to leave after eating this very expensive fish chowder, because we were unsure about ordering more..i.e. will it be what it says.

“average pub style food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Nicely decorated but the food was just okay, basic bar food. Waitress seemed a bit put out that we got up and waited up by the bar to get our bill and pay but we didn't have a lot of time on our hands to keep waiting at the table. Nice location right on the waterfront/marina next to the Ship Hector Quay.

“Give it a miss..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Lots of staff on..but it was like we were invisible..we almost got up and left..Service bad..
Our drinks came at the same time..would have enjoyed a drink..while we were waiting for our food to arrive..it was hot..but that's all I can say about it...on the positive side..fries horrible..greasy & tastless..fish...dry..yet batter not cooked inside..
Chicken burger..processed breast meat...not good...Will not be visiting again..

“Over priced and limited menu!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Haven't been impressed the past few times of been here and it's the last. It's starting to look old, menu is limited and over priced. The only killer thing on the menu is the Blueberry Grunt. Can't say anything bad about the staff, wonderful and friendly. Looking forward to trying the new restaurant across the street. It's got to be better!!
