“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Pricey, but the food was excellent. The mussels with creamy sauce special of that day were some of the best we ever ate.

“Beautiful restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

We walked past this restaurant while walking through the area. It was such a beautiful building we had to try it. It is such a lovely restaurant to sit in and just relax. The food was okay - we went for lunch and it was a nice meal. Definitely worth the visit.

Best place about this is the friendly staff - especially the manager who was very helpful in helping us grab some food for take out.. great deserts and nice coffee.. We have also ate there and the menu is really great and the lunch was really nice.

“Not what it is cracked up to be”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

This restaurant has a long standing specialty called lobster poutine.
We had it for lunch one day. It was ok, and there was one piece of lobster claw, and a few small pieces in the rest. I would not order again for $17. Its mostly fries and gravy like regular poutine.

“Vacation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

The location for this place is great . Right on Main Street. Parking is a problem. The town has parking meters right in front. $ 2 for one hour.
The decor is nice and the food for lunch was good. But way too much. It was lunch!!
The service was nice.
But $50.00 for two sandwiches and one beer?? But that was Canadian $.
Go next door for cheaper food
