A very friendly welcome. You may think the room is a bit squashed but they get full so need to fit in as best they can. Our waitress was superb. The specials were delicious. The wine choice good. We were in town 3 days and having tried somewhere else the next night returned here. Only slight disappointment was they repeat... More

My wife and I had cause for celebration and decided to make a reservation for dinner at the Garrison House. From the time we walked through the door (restaurant Manager Brad greeted us) to the ordering our meal and walking out the door, the most positive experience. Tabatha, our waitress, has got to be one of the most gracious and... More

We had dinner at the Garrison House and the food was good and presented nicely. My Dean Martin lobster salad was served in a martini glass and had a lot of fresh lobster. My shrimp and scallop curry was also very nice. Service was a little slow.

We went to the Garrison House for dinner on the recommendation of our B & B hosts. Given their previous great experiences and the positive things we heard from others, we had high hopes for a wonderful meal. IT SO WASN'T. When we arrived, we noticed a large group celebrating a birthday had already been seated, but they had begun... More

We went here for dinner because it was one of the spots recommended to us by the B and B at which we were staying. My wife and sister each had the whole lobster, which at 1.5 lbs for only $30 was a great deal. I had the haddock which was nicely seasoned. My brother in law had the salmon.... More

When locals were asked, prior to our meal, what restaurant they would recommend, this was always the first. The following day, when expressing our disappointment, they frequently 'fessed up to having had (or heard) disappointments there in the recent past. Our dinner was bland, vegetables were overcooked and mushy, my wine was forgotten ("We were very busy"). The serving staff... More

we ate here on the recommendation of our hosts at the Hillsdale House Inn. I initially was going to eat at Bistro East probably should have. We started with the cold smoked salmon which was delicious. I ordered the red thai curry with scallops and shrimp, the rice was cooked to the consistency of mush, the curry sauce was really... More

My friend and I had dinner there one evening. She had the salmon, which she said was wonderful. I had a lobster dish, which was delicious. We ate on the enclosed porch, as it was very warm out. The service was very good and the prices were very reasonable. I would definitely go there again, when in the area.

Within walking distance of the Hillsdale House Inn where we were staying in Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, our host made special arrangements for us to dine though it was busy evening. We were seated on the enclosed terrace, but were served promptly and with courtesy. We would recommend having lunch or dinner here, as the menu offers regional favorites with... More

Our group of (7) decided to have dinner at the Garrison House on Sunday, September 4th after our B&B owners highly recommended the place. We were greeted warmly by the hostess and seated promptly.
