“Food and Books and Music, Oh My!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Earle's has it, and if it doesn't, you don't need it. From sit down food to "to-die-for" partridgeberry molasses jam-jam cookies, to moose stew in a jar, to Newfoundland books and local musicians' CDs, Earle's is a delight. Casual dining, seems to be family friendly, and clean washrooms. A great place to spend an hour in Rocky Harbour.

“Excellent Meal!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Had a great supper at Earl's. Tastiest fisherman's platter ever...shrimp was the best!! Baked goods looked mouth watering but we were too full for dessert. We did try the raisin tea buns and they were excellent!!

“Very good food, competitive prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Basic decor but the food makes up for it. Quality is consistent as we ate there several times on our visit to Rocky Harbour. Try the moose meat stew. It is excellent!

“Great Bakery”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Earl's has a fantastic bakery with all sorts of Jams, Berries, homemade pies and breads. Their lemon meringue pie is to die for. The restaurant seems to be slowing down somewhat each year, and hopefully a little speed in the delivery of the food at the take out and restaurant will get people back on the road exploring the area. The outdoor area could be 'classied' up a little as I am sure tourists would love to sit outside.

“A fun place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

We had to wait a while for a table on a busy week night but that was just a testament to the popularity of the place. The fish was excellent and the service good. Everything tasted fresh. This was a fun place to have a casual meal.
