This had been recommended to us by some locals as good basic food. The place is remininscent of an out-dated 80's pub with old dried flowers, a rather musty fell to the place. The service was okay. The menu basic but very outdated - lots of old fashioned meat dishes and very plain sandwiches.

The best thing on the menu is the seafood chowder which is made in the kitchen. The rest of the menu is average at best. Not a place for luscious fresh salads, more of a meat and potato place.

After walking out of another restaurant for poor service, we ended up here. It was one of our hotel managers recommendations. Definitely an old school, locals vibe. Our party has mussels, seafood casserole and prime rib steak. Mussels are a MUST - they we re a perfect garlic and wine classic. Casserole was New England/Island comfort food at its best.... More

A friend suggested we meet here for lunch. She said nothing super fancy, but consistently good food. Although we only ate here the one occasion, we believe she is right. The food was really good. Service was wonderful and because we were doing a lot of visiting, we weren't even done our salads and our main course was there. She... More

Our dinner was friends. Three of us had the fish and chips and one had the 13oz big Jim steak with mushrooms on the side. Prices are good, the waitress was attentive and pleasant. The only bad thing I can say is that the rug needs to come out. I don't think it's dirty. Just really old.

Food was good. Improvements could include: Get rid of those no good place mats with advertisements. Use place mats designed to match the décor. The interior booths, etc. are very nice. Also, get rid of that crap-rap radio coming from the ceiling speakers. Nice easy-listening music with no noisy advertisements would be much better.

Ordered a cheeseburger platter, when the meal came, the hamburger was a frozen patty, greasy and flavorless. The fries were frozen as well... being on PEI (land of potatoes), I feel this is highly unacceptable! Especially when you factor in the prices... not impressive, will not return.

Portion sizes have shrunk ....service at our last visit was nothing short of rude. Server didn't bother to check to see if meals were OK and we couldn't even get a refill on our water. Not impressed.
