I had searched out this restaurant and planned our route to be able to visit! We came off the ferry from NB and it was only a 20 minute drive. The view is beyond belief. A panoramic view. There was chilled music which just added...More

Scenery is beautiful on the drive down to the restaurant. Food and service was first class. The chowder was worth the drive.

This place has a great view, and beautiful setting. The food is lacking, and the prices are out of line. Not very child-friendly; nothing on the kid's menu has any protein. The clam-chowder is more of a corn chowder. It's soooo heavy on the corn...More

a highlight even in the midst of the shellfish festival going on. Delightful people, picturesque setting, my companions thought their chowder was the best thing ever, but I think my Acadian chowder was even better

This is our favourite restaurant on the island, casual, awesome setting on the ocean, beautiful sunsets, a working lighthouse nearby. Best chowder and fresh lobster rolls!

My wife and I had lunch here. They were reasonably busy and the food was good not great. The staff and service were average to be fair. They won’t cater for bigger parties either. Unsure if I’d go back

The property is wheelchair accessible and at least one of the washrooms seems large enough to accommodate a wheelchair.
