We went dinner. We had to sit in a small table when the restaurant was quite empty. The meat was really hard to cut and eat. Bad service in general.

We visited for dinner having just arrived in the bay. We opted for the sea food chowder which was very good. I had fish and chips which was ok. The fish was a little over cooked and the batter a little "bitter" because of it....More
