I feel bad for the name and the history of this restaurant. It had such potential. the hostess just ruins any fond memories with her snotty attitude. Feels like your an uninvited house guest.

Fresh and tasty local seafood done really well. The mussels and salmon were especially good, and the chowder has won local awards. Decent local BC wines also, which have improved. Right downtown near the water. Recommended.
