My family and I camped a couple weeks in the Highlands, and on our way to trails, or on a rainy day, we'd pass by this restaurant, remarking "this place has cars parked at it all the time, it must be a good one" - so on our last night in the park, we treated ourselves to a dinner out... More

Decent food for a roadhouse style restaurant. The potato skins were different than at home, but good. Chicken focaccia was also good, lots of flavour. Big portions, enough to take leftovers for the next day.

The food was hot, I'll say that for it, but nothing special. I had the Ringer, which they're famous for, a burger with onion rings, cheese, bacon and a smokey sauce. My husband had fish and chips. Turns out they charge $3.49 for substitutions, so with tax and tip, that was an extra $10 to sub sweet potato fries for... More

Good comfort food. Seafood was great. The seafood pasta was wonderful, so was the chowder and the crab dip. The staff were friendly. We loved the down east musician that played.

Had their big breakfast so be prepared for a lot of food on your plate! Delicious! They are super friendly and the service was very good. We didn't have to wait too long for our coffee and they had our piping hot HUGE breakfast in front of us in no time!
