Just a bad fish meal (fish and chips, their specialty& pricy) Fish quit dry, & chewy! Fries just average cut strips. Meal was early dinner, 5:15. Maybe cook wasn't up to speed. Server never showed after serving meal until she brought check, then didn't ask how I like meal. However, I did mention condition of meal and she said: I'll... More

When we arrived we could tell things were busy. The State Fair was in town and maybe they had not planned for it. One person was waiter, cashier, bartender and bus boy. Serving about 12+ tables made it a nightmare. Just be patient and wait. Really poor management problem in my opinion. He did what he could and a young... More

I had the salmon dinner it was acceptable, but, nothing to write home about. The salad was served at room temperature and had cabbage in it. First lettuce salad I have eaten with cabbage. The wife had fried chicken, it was ok but she called it pigmy chicken due to the size of the pieces of chicken

I love this restaurant and go almost every year. The fish and chips are fabulous! Other dishes have been good as well and the prices are pretty good. It is nice to sit with a view of the ocean. Service is usually quite good.

It had good food. The staff was very nice. The view was great! You could see the snowcapped mountains and turquoise water. You can also see eagles in the restruaunt.

The service was horrific and we waited forever for our orders. When we DID receive them, they were wrong :( I would never go back to this place! I... More
