The food is excellent, with a home-made feel, and the table servers are friendly and efficient. For breakfast and for daytime dining, get a table by the window - the view of the Annapolis Basin is spectacular.

We stayed here before going to Brier Island and then stayed again two days later. Minutes from the ferry and downtown Digby. The dining room is very good, recommended that you try the scallops. Room was clean and easily accessible.

The restaurant was good - friendly staff, prompt service. At check-in you get a $5 coupon toward the cost of your breakfast. View from the dining room is great.

Our family of four stayed here for one night, before heading down to Brier Island whale watching. We had a balcony room (a bit more costly than the standard room) and found it to be nice and clean, spacious, and with a beautiful view of the water. Our relatives stayed in a standard room - was smaller and a bit... More

We stayed at the inn, so it was an easy choice for dinner. Not the best food, but ok. I ordered mixed veg for my nine month old and the waitress knew it was for her and it came covered in butter and pepper. I'm not used to veggies being served this way, but I expect that is how people... More

Barely healthy. The fruit cup was terrible. The carrot muffin tasted like it was made from a mix. Poor layout: the waitresses kept running into us when we were walking in and out.

So we didn't actually stay here... we were looking for a place to eat one night and saw that the restaurant here was open to the public, so we decided to try it, and that was one of the best decisions we made on our entire trip! Our waitress was very friendly, and we couldn't have asked for better food.... More

We had dinner here. Both the steak and scallops were excellent - and our server was the best! She filled us in on local events and answered questions - very professional, but friendly. Our table was ready when we arrived, we were greeted immediately and our order was taken promptly, with special requests noted. The rolls were homemade. I had... More

Fantastic food and service. The scallops were the best we had on the whole east coast trip. Breaking was also very yummy. We would pop in for a coffee before breaking and they didn't charge us. The staff were incredibly friendly.

Our restaurant uses all local fresh seafood including Lobster, Scallops clams and Haddock, or if you prefer have a steak cooked to perfection. All our dishes are made fresh everyday to order, enjoy a glass of wine or beer and watch the fishing boats return to Digby after a day on the water, no driving after a long day just walk to your room or sit on our deck and relax nova scotia style.
