Nothing fancy, but tasty good food, along with friendly service and a relaxed ambiance win with us. Staff are very friendly with locals and tourists alike. I was surprised our waitress wasn't from Nova Scotia or Newfoundland considering she called everyone darling, dear or honey!...More

The breakfast buffet was excellent. They make custom omelettes, orange juice was good, coffee was ok, plus they has many other breakfast items. You cannot help yourself. You must over eat!

Karen's Place just changed names - it is now called 'Grill Marx'. Still the same fantastic food - had an incredibly delicious salad with homemade dressing.

A friendly place to sit down and relax, with either your family or just the two of you. Home cooking at its best. Great food, great service. You won't walk away hungry. Every Friday night we have our theme night buffets; every FRIDAY is different. From Mexican, Greek, Hawaiian, German, taste of the sea, taste of Europe, Jamaican, to New Orleans. And our waitresses dress up to the theme.
