This little space is a hidden gem....the building is very unassuming to the point if your eye doesn't catch the sign you will miss it _ it doesn't look like much from the outside. There are not enough wonderful words to describe the food here. The food is prepared to perfection and the portions are perfect...Fish lovers delight but lots... More

One needs to know about this restaurant or know someone who does. It is off the main street and would be difficult to find without help. It sits very close to the water in a building that is not well marked. Once you get inside though, it is warm and inviting. We had reservations and were seated immediately. The menu... More

Fabulous restaurant, don't miss the lobster ravioli, it is fabulous as well as most of the entrees on their menu. Be sure to have a reservation or you probably won't be lucky enough to dine here.

We stopped here and were pleasantly pleased with our meals. Service was prompt and friendly.My hubby had fish n' chips and I had a lobster roll.A tad pricey but worth it. View was great sitting near the window ..

Food was amazing. Portions a good size. Small restaurant so it's best to have reservations. Mussels, crab cakes, scallops and seafood chowder were done to perfection.

We were staying at the Boat to Sea B&B just down the road, and this restaurant was highly recommended by Jane, the owner. We had an amazing meal! We had the Seafood Salad and the Seafood Clubhouse - after being told there was no lobster (I think they were molting, and not at their best), we wondered what we were... More

Customer service is a lot to be desired.....my niece visiting us from B.C. was taking us out to dinner for appreciation of staying with us. When she called to make reservations for the four of us and a 3 year old little boy she became very aware by the attitude of the lady on the other end that children were... More

Had lunch recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. The chowder was excellent, the lobster club was very good and generous and the seafood salad was great with grilled romaine and grilled bread. A nice lunch with good service. We went at the end of lunch and didn't need a reservation.

Even with the sign on the street, it was hard to find the entrance. Don't be fooled by the rough exterior and simple decor inside. This food is the best anywhere. The wait staff was sweet, and the chef came by to check on us. Generous portions. When I asked for half of my sandwich to be boxed, the server... More
