Delicious food, friendly staff, lovely new decor. This is a favourite of the locals & highly recommended for all tourists. The owner is simply delightful. Whether you want liver & onions, a BLT, Lebanese dishes, seafood or a combination, it is all outstanding & the servings are large. We had mussels, bacon wrapped scallops, & haddock. All outstanding! Our evening... More

Been here previous years and quite good, consistent and good service. This visit, poor service, very noisy, higher prices which I guess is to help pay for the renovations done - which has improved! My chicken was tough, vegetables over cooked and stuffing with butternut squash tasted like box stuffing and wet! Not impressed at all. We were a large... More

24 years and counting for this wonderful family run restaurant. Excellent food and excellent service. Variety of menu items. Fresh products and supports local. Award winning We are regulars and it is always 5 star. Top that off with a recent renovation that is really nice. Be sure to pick this one for dining local.

I visited this restaurant with a large group of friends. Service was impressive for a group of 16. Staff were friendly and aimed to please. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meal. I had a chicken caesar. Caesar was nice but unfortunately, the chicken was pretty dry. Wasn't inedible but when you have to put it on a separate plate to... More

We happenend upon this restaurant 3 years ago while visiting pei. My husband has (not - so - patiently) been waiting to return so it was one of the first places we visited this year. He was happy to report that the goddess burger was worth the long wait. I don't remember what I had last time, but had the... More

So I will start with the greeting at the door, friendly and accommodating. I had a little dog in a kennel and asked if it was ok, it was! The menu is just the right size and has lots of different types of dishes to choose from. Our server was very professional and made sure we were well cared for... More

This is a family style restaurant that recently was renovated to update the decor and furnishings but they've maintained a varied menu that would satisfy any diner. Friendly service, good no-nonsense food, big helpings and reasonably priced. This is where the locals in town go for a great meal!
