I really have nothing much to say. I had mussels which were barely OK with many empty shells. They were served with this chunk of melted butter/garlic on the side. Sounds weird? Tasted weirder. I left the butter. Service was non-existant.

Restaurant in a local hotel and the ambience suffers as a consequence. We went there because they had moose burgers on the menu. I liked that the place made the effort to showcase some local specialties, offering Newfoundland berry wines, etc. good on them! The...More
